Catching up on some much needed photo dumps. First up: the house. It is slowly coming along and feeling so settled. Next on the list for smaller projects: updating the lighting and our flush mounts and fixtures! We’re also excited to keep finishing the basement this fall to maybe even get Dillon working down in […]

These sweet summer days are so full. Sunshine and late bedtimes. Lots of ice cream. Playing outside with our littlest cousin friends. And soaking up all the outdoor activities the season has to offer us. Our house finally feels settled, so free time is a bit more ample these days. But of course, that leaves […]

A little photo series on how we went from 37 1/2 weeks pregnant to a family of four within just a handful of hours. Grateful for a healthy delivery, albeit very unexpected (Braxton Hicks that turned into labor at 2am, and ultimately a quick turnaround for our c-section later that morning) It’s been a whirlwind […]

Well, we decided to go a little out of our comfort zone and paint our kitchen floors a bold checkered pattern. In the next year or two, we’d love to completely gut our kitchen, install or refinish the hardwood floors (fingers crossed we’ve got em under the tile!), and just generally update the entire layout […]

Goodness, it’s been a minute or two since I allowed myself some time to sit down and catch up on the chaos of our lives recently (beautiful blessed chaos, but chaos nonetheless). The long and short of the last few months: balancing family time with a sudden move. A house on one of our dream […]

Days at home with a very busy toddler can sometimes be overwhelming. The lingering winter makes outdoor adventures few and far between. We’re patiently waiting for spring to really be here, so in the meantime we’ve resorted to sensory bins with cheerios and clothespin playing. Thankfully, Nora is happy to be doing just about anything! […]

We’re feeling that springtime excitement and anticipation. Nice days are more and more frequent. Spring cleaning’s in full swing. House projects are being checked off. Plants are growing….and so is our family! It feels like since we’ve found out about our newest bundle, Nora just seems so much older. She is talking all the time […]

The long days of winter lend themselves to a sense of habit and flow. We settle into our comfortable routines that bring a bit of joy to the otherwise hum drum days of bitter cold and brutal snow. Morning coffees. Weekend sourdough. Movies. Daily chores. And rest, lots and lots of rest. It’s those little […]

These last couple of weeks we have really been getting in to the holiday swing of things. And it’s been a nice mix of quiet nights with movies playing and busy activities with family and friends. On the bucket list for this year: a trip to the zoo lights, Christmas cookie baking, and salt dough […]

Over the past handful of years, we’ve refined much of our holiday decorations down to just a couple of storage bins. Somewhere along the line “Christmas minimalism”, as I’ve dubbed it, came to fruition. This season, so packed full of traditions, music, meals, decorations, presents, etc, can easily start to feel really heavy and cumbersome […]
