tour around my home: the hallway

picture gallery in hallway via seejaneblog We have one hallway in our home, and here it is! Keeping in mind our home is originally a 1960’s rambler, this hallway is pretty narrow – but I love how the gallery walls open the space and make it cozy. I’m still working on finding one final piece – maybe a weaving or circular mirror – i’m not sure yet.

Have you been curious as to what the silver silo in our living room is??? Here’s the answer: it’s a slide that goes to our basement! Very steam punk. There is also a steel ladder that goes up from the slide entrance to an attic space that we are currently finishing as a small playroom for Sela. The slide exits into a “mine” play area in the basement. Some intense nerf gun battles take place down there with everyone hiding out in the mine and their guns poking out the cave holes.

This is the second home we’ve owned with a slide – both of them went from the main floor to the basement and it’s such a fun detail. I highly recommend adding one to your home if you are considering it! I love to see the shock on my kiddos-friends faces when I come flying down it. We try to get everyone who visits to try it at least once – my husbands aunt who is in her seventies went down it last year and I was so proud of her! It’s fun. family cross-stitch by nicole hum stitchery via seejaneblog

red cliffs – red reef hike – Leeds, Utah

Red Cliffs Utah via seejaneblogWhile in Southern Utah, Dusty and I wanted to hike with our kids at Red Cliffs. A place we used to hike all the time when we were in college at SUU. We lucked out with ideal hiking weather! Because we went on a Sunday morning the hike wasn’t very packed with people, it was gorgeous. The earth was definitely showing off!

southern utah

Razring in Sand Hallow via seejaneblogAs soon as the little retreat was finished in Cedar City we headed a bit farther South to spend the weekend in St. George. We chose to stay at the Sand Hollow Resort – they have villas for rent that fit our family with extra space. It was sunny, fun, and a good dose of family time! Without sounding to whiney – it’s less and less common these days that we get time together with all of us. We “divide and conquer” more and more often. Dusty has taken kids on the past two weekends to softball and baseball tournaments in St George while I stayed home for dance competitions, homework and other commitments. Dusty’s travel/work schedule. My school schedule. Other kids activities – man we are in a crazy but wonderflu stage of life, and the moments we are all together – are extra good. Families are truly a beautiful gift.

little retreats – driftwood mobiles

Recycled Consign & Design Cedar City Utah little retreats by Jane via seejaneblog.jpg I did it! I took L I T T L E R E T R E A T S on the road, and it was a success! And by “I” I mean an entire team of WE! Especially this last weekend. In fact, I’ve been overcome with gratitude for my family, and friends who support and help me in big ways to make these retreats possible.

This time around we rented a trailer, loaded up our tables, kitchen supplies, and more. Kitchen Eighty-eight went on the road with us, Amanda who owns Recycled Consign & Design was the most gracious host — everyone was so much help! Even my daughter’s boyfriend was hauling stuff around all weekend for me – my kids each helped with set up and clean up. And yet, they all do this each time I have a project or idea – without complaining – just thinking, “this is what mom does…” So, before I indulge any details of how awesome the retreat was, how amazing the company was and how crazy it was to figure out connections with each of the guests – THANK YOU, THANK YOU with the tightest hugs to all of you who help me make these retreats possible. I LOVE bringing people together and I LOVE you for all helping me do it.

Little retreats by jane with kitchen 88 and recycled consign in cedar city utah via seejaneblogThis time, like before – Kitchen Eighty-eight prepared delicious, fresh food. It’s always as pretty as it is delicious. Something new this time – we had GUYS as guests!!! And it was so fun to have mixed company – they were a little competitive trying to finish their driftwood mobiles first, it was hilarious! People were creative and put their own twist on the mobiles – I just loved the entire evening. And Amanda’s shop: Recycled Consign & Design – a darling backdrop for our night!

Recycled Design & Consign Cedar City Utah little retreats by Jane via seejaneblog VII absolutely cherish the time to connect with friends at the retreats – but especially this time – it was a crazy round of “six degrees of separation” with almost everyone who came! It really is a small world after all.
