These are the things I’ve been digging on this month. The images, words, and people that have made me wonder deeper, breathe more easily, and remember what matters. If something hits my heart I screenshot it. Revisiting this album fascinated me. What are you inspired enough to screenshot for future reminders???

What if every day you woke up and immediately saw the astonishing light of your own being?

Me. Every. Damn. Time.

Lots of storms these days friends. Can you believe even just a little that you are evolving for the better from it?

If you don’t know @august.designs then you are missing out. Best female small biz owner and chicest inventory ever!

Last week I posted about the turmoil my soul was feeling this past month. This quote, posted by friend and jewelry designer @elizasloanejewelry really hit home.

My dear friend moved in during Covid. It was a gift from the heavens above She speaks so much life and love into me and my family. She sent me this quote just when I needed it most.

No words for this one. Why as a country are we so bad at this? I want to help and need to figure out how. I’ve signed enough petitions. I want to do more. It’s time.

I can’t even with you @floepainting. This new “wallpaper” design is epic!

We can do better than we are doing on both fronts.

Love this chic little bag for summer. Not enough room for an IPhone. Maybe that’s a good thing… 😉

Dying to try this on a cabbage slaw this summer! @healthygirlkitchen posts such great content.

We are about to finally redo our kitchen. MAJOR inspiration in this pic from @markdsikes.

You know, just in case you wanted to get your heart rate up. Spring in the burbs. Text from my husband on a Friday. Eeeeep!

I just can’t seem to help myself… What a waste of energy though? I am vowing today to waste less time dissecting every little thing. I am going to be the water that flows around the rock in the middle of the stream.

I am obsessed with this podcast, The Knowledge Project. Just brilliant content. @tkpodcast This interview with PHD Andrew Huberman blew my mind. @hubermanlab Thanks to him I am now off of melatonin and sleeping better on some incredible new supplements. I walked away from this listen much wiser.

Look who got caught crossing our property line and going through recycling bins in the neighbor’s yard?!? Piggy gene strikes again! This dog will literally do anything for a lick of food!!!

Imagine if we tried to see ourself in each person we interacted with today? Even that a-hole who honked their horn at you on the main drag when you slowed down to let someone cross.

Hardest and best job ever…

The first shot we got of sweet Jo Jo. Love at first sight!


I am a BOSS at worrying.

Best playlist ever from Her online zoom classes are epic!

I’m a Little Teapot

I have a strong sense this blog post might resonate with at least a few readers. Recently I have felt like a teapot about to blow. And not just a “boy do I need a glass of wine at the end of the day” kind of blow, but a full on “I am going to… read more

Food That Heals

Vital Proteins Matcha Collagen Powder – I am on a major matcha green tea kick again. This powder is my favorite because it isn’t too strong and it has collagen powder too. It’s good for the skin, and 1/3 the caffeine of a strong cup of coffee. Green tea also has loads of antioxidants. I’m… read more

How To Survive A Perpetual Pandemic

As we approach the 2 year mark on this pandemic, I think we can all agree it’s been a doozy. I listened to a podcast that said it most perfectly, “The biggest problem is that they keep changing the end goal on us!” It’s one thing to brace yourself for trauma, but it’s another thing… read more

Best of Gift Guide

Over the years I have gotten better and better at planning in advance for Christmas. I am seriously committed to enjoying December and being able to relax once the kids are out of school. I used to be out on Christmas Eve hustling around to find that perfect gift. Stores were crowded and inventory was… read more

Artist Love: Madeleine Gross

I’m always on the hunt for artists who inspire me. Both to purchase for our home and to emulate on my own as I dabble in creative expression. Madeleine Gross combines photography and paint to create works that feel fresh and unique. I love how she mixes mediums and allows the viewer to see just… read more

Have You?

Friends. Have you? Have you allowed yourself to sit amongst the chaos of back to school and back from Covid lockdown and just do nothing? Here is your invitation. One of the biggest takeaways I have learned from the last 1.5 years in Covidland is that we are allowed to and we actually NEED to… read more

Back to School Book Review

With the children back in school I am finally seated in front of my screen. So much to share. So many things I witnessed, experienced, and thought about all summer and said to myself “Now this would be great for the blog!” So now I am going to get down to it and start writing… read more

Getting Cozy with Elile Loom

With snow having been dumped on 90% of the US, there is no better time to think about getting cozy. Today I bring you blankets, towels, dish rags, and robes that are sure to make you feel swaddled in love post outdoor activity, chores, or bath. My dear friend from college (who is a master… read more

A Place to Dwell

While international travel is nowhere on the horizon during these pandemic times, one can always fantasize about where they would go if they could. For me it would be the small village of Surrey in England. Claire Vero’s renovation on her 19th century classic Georgian home is picture perfect. Vero, used London-based interior decorators Mary… read more
