MARCH DINNERS + ARTICHOKES

So many reasons to be excited for March — spring break, baseball season, + daylight savings (!), to name a few — but at the top of my list is all the spring produce that’s been popping up at the store. Last week I grabbed artichokes to serve for happy hour with a glass of […]

MINI MAKERS: RAINBOW KIDS CRAFT

Happy beginning of the week! Or something like that? I never quite know how to feel when Monday morning rolls around. Part of me is still relishing in the weekend magic while the other half is ready to complete a few things on my to-do list. Whatever side of Monday you find yourself on, I […]

THINGS WE LOVE: RAINBOWS

The kids might be home from school today due to the prettiest snowfall, but my mind is still on Spring and the sunshine and rainbows that come with it. Found a few ways to wear, sleep and have fun with the latter while waiting for the real thing. Can’t resist a good mix of colors!!! […]

KITCHEN NOOK REFRESH + AN OVERSIZED CORK BOARD DIY

We took advantage of the long weekend and checked off a couple small house projects and by “we” I mean Johan. My contribution came mostly in the form of ideas, shopping and a borderline annoying amount of moral support. Since words of affirmation is Johan’s love language and acts of service is mine, this arrangement […]

STYLE + PLAY: AN INVITATION TO PLAY + MORE ATHLEASURE, PLEASE

Earlier this week, Johan and I took Poppy to the children’s museum followed by our favorite cupcake shop and ever since I can’t stop thinking about a few things. 1. How/why do kids stay so much more engaged at a museum vs. at home, aside from the obvious newness of the activities? 2. Why aren’t there smoothie/juice […]

KID-FRIENDLY VALENTINE’S DAY PLAYLIST

Nothing says LOVE like a boombox serenade! Or in Espen’s case, a bluetooth serenade :) Put together a few songs that will get everyone dancing, feeling all the feels, and aren’t too heavy on the mushy side! I couldn’t decide on a specific genre so they’re a little random, however the playlist does start out fun and […]

We made it through January (still celebrating over here!), the sun stays in the sky a little longer everyday, and I finally started to break out of my winter rut you guys. Hallelujah! Even though it’ll be awhile before we see a decent amount of blue skies and sunshine here in the PNW, it seems […]
