One way to reflect & practice thankfulness, it to simply look at our journals & instagram accounts & recount the best moments and blessings of the month that is just winding down, here are a few of mine.

We are nearing the middle of September, and in so many ways I have not jumped two weeks, but two years in this span of time. Our oldest is in now Kindergarten! This means we’re living through our first season of one of our kids at school five days a week, all day long. What a change this is bringing to so many portions of our day, week, and even yearly calendar! Now let’s jump back for the August favorites.

My favorite newly redesigned area of our home. [Kids table Amazon (2018), Book Shelves Ikea (2014)]

My favorite “its really the end of the new born days” mood happened while resurrecting my go to bread recipe. [Cookbook via Amazon or Bookshop]

My favorite way to create order amongst the chaos of the mornings & life with littles. [Order via my shop.]

My favorite weekend of August was spend camping for the first time in my adult life with my best friend & her daughter.

My favorite new way to pass a Sunday afternoon biking at the state park.

My favorite ditch flower to gather & admire.

My favorite simple summer lunch. Make the taco meat in advance. Warm in the microwave or broil on a Fiestaware plate & enjoy.

My favorite photos from the first day of school filled with tears & laughter and huge backpacks.

My favorite new kids book [Via Amazon or BookShop.]

Hey, I’m Sierra Shea! I am so glad you are here. 

Where do I start with writing to introduce this blog? At the beginning, I suppose: I’ve been writing on various platforms online since 2013. I started blogging shortly after moving to South Dakota.

I am a mother and a maker at heart. I’m so grateful to be married to John and mother of three: Joslyn, J.D. and Jesse.

I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and a Spiritual Director.

I love living in South Dakota, even though the winters & the wind can be a near-daily struggle.

Blogging is a grounding force in my life and it helps get me out of my head, unstuck and moving in the directions I always hoped I’d be going!
