I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with Rusty, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (three with Rusty) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with your cup of tea and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

I began blogging in 2012 when I started my wedding photography business. For five years I blogged about the weddings I photographed and little snippets of life as a photographer. However, a little over a year ago I, along with my husband Paul, officially retired from wedding photography. 

Within the years spent as a photographer, I decided to go after another dream, one I had since childhood. I finally bought my first set of brushes and watercolors in 2015 and it was love at first 'swish'. I began creating art for the home and accidentally found a love for creating calendars (you can visit my shop here) and learning to draw/paint digitally.

This blog has gone from being about photography and weddings to a lifestyle blog, filled with happy thoughts, life’s little romantic moments, watercolors, books…snippets of happiness, really. Each time you read this blog, I hope for you to leave happier, more at peace, with a little inspiration under your belt, and ready to take on the day. Enjoy perusing the blog and feel free to say hi – I love finding new kindred spirits. :) xoxo

Whimsical, bright, & colorful watercolor art, sprinkled with enchanting quotes, and sewn together with my hand-writing.

From my home in Minnesota to yours.
