livefreemiranda I'm going to be looking back through my (150!!) photos from the #tribezainteriorstour today for weeks/months. I keep coming back to this one. It's all about the quiet details. 1d

livefreemiranda My mind is exploding with inspiration from the #TRIBEZAInteriorsTour today. Takeaways for me: I love the stories of homes, and want mine to tell ours. I love floors, lighting,and hardware as much or more than furniture. I want my outdoor space to feel as welcoming as my indoor. I love when homes with kids reflect the kids as well as the adults. And if I love something, there is always a place for it in my house. We wandered through all eight houses designed by local designers and had been looking forward to it since last year #thetribezatourfour can't wait for next! 2d

livefreemiranda Eliot woke me up at 5am. And when I told him to go back to bed he went and woke up Plum and Milo😑. So I nursed Plum while he cried in the hallway saying "Sometimes I make bad choices" until Milo came in and I sent them to snuggle with Dad. I put Plum back to sleep and climbed in my now-child-filled bed to get a few more minutes. The next thing I know, Milo says "Mom, I made you breakfast!" It was still too early! I had him read me the numbers on the clock every time he asked until it said "seven, two dots, three, oh" then I pulled myself out of bed and went into the kitchen to find a full breakfast of toast, granola bars, string cheese, gogurt, banana, and milk! "It's kind of a snack breakfast" he said. Gosh, they are exhausting and amazing. 2d
  •   dohmmain Did he pour the milk cups too? That is super cute! 2d
  •   livefreemiranda @dohmmain yes! Can you believe that?! 2d
  •   danamadeit I love it when Casey says "let's sleep-in tomorrow"....and I'm like, um, yea, we'll see what the kids have in mind.... 2d
  •   allysondidlake What a sweet boy! 2d
  •   livefreemiranda @danamadeit right? Plum is my only sleepyhead. The boys are always super early! 1d
  •   chelseahorsley This is the cutest! The milk. Oh boy. 1d
  •   marenellen Milo's breakfasts are the best. You've just got to teach them to make pancakes and eggs and bring it to you in bed ;) 1d
  •   arneandy A best memory! 19h

livefreemiranda Dreaming of shortening pants and sleeves for the spring. ️ If you're local, come join me for a hem class on Feb 5th! Register with my profile link. Also, today is #nationalhandwritingday and @melissapher is having a terrific calligraphy giveaway. ️ (Does writing with thread count for the #handwritinggiveaway? ) 2d
  •   fourtysix_and_two Hi Mrs. Miranda. This may be random but I just wanted to say that I love you and your family. I travel the world for a living and for adventures and it's a rarity to see such great parenting. You guys are so involved in everything your 3 children are doing. You guys help them evolve, etc. It's truly amazing and I don't see it as often as I'd like to. Unfortunately. I come from a great family and I really appreciate what you and your family stand for. Thank you. 2d
  •   livefreemiranda @fourtysix_and_two that's nice of you to say! Thank you! 2d
  •   fourtysix_and_two You are welcome. 2d

livefreemiranda Little by little by little our house is getting more homey. One year in and we still have mostly empty rooms. But thanks to the new console our tv is no longer floating mid-wall, and I'm thrilled with a place to put more potted plants! (Living an hour from the outlet is ) #andersonsbuildahouse #mywestelm 4d

livefreemiranda This TBT I've been watching a bunch of my friends post from @altsummit and remembering my first #altsummit experience in 2013. I learned a few things that truly changed my life for the better. In fact, I believe my whole life paradigm shifted while I was there. When I got home I made this fabric poster using a quote from Stefan Sagmeister's keynote that hangs in my bedroom as a daily reminder to choose the things I love. #pushplay 4d

livefreemiranda Sometimes I finish a little girl order and realize I have to make it all over again so Plum can have one, too. This sequined tutu dress is killing me with cuteness!! 5d

livefreemiranda "We must discover the power of love, the power, the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world. We will be able to make men better. Love is the only way." -Martin Luther King, Jr. I've been reading and brainstorming how to commemorate this holiday with my kids, so they begin to learn about being a force for good, standing for truth, and living in kindness. All I've come up with is a dinner of his favorite foods (fried chicken and pecan pie) and a lesson on love. I think that'll do. 7d

livefreemiranda Today was so beautiful. These three wear me out and keep me on my toes, and they also fill me up. Sometimes I feel like I lose myself in the whirlwind of motherhood, but then I see myself in them. I also remember that I need to make space to do things I love and be my best self for me, and for them too. 1w

livefreemiranda Jesus wants me for a sun-BEAM, to shine for Him each day... ️ Eliot has a funny way of seeming older than he is, while always surprising me by growing up. I totally forgot that being three meant he would move out of the nursery at church in the new year. But then again I'm shocked that he has another full year of preschool before heading to kindergarten, because he already acts so ready for it. He's my little enigma, this one. 1w

livefreemiranda When they say "We made you breakfast in bed!" What they mean is, "We made breakfast in bed for us to share with you!" And I wouldn't have it any other way. Happy Sunday morning:) 1w
