Rupert and I just celebrated our 7-year wedding anniversary while we were on our family vacation in Michigan. We were able to sneak away for dinner and a movie night while my parents watched Archie but we got extra nostalgic thinking about our honeymoon and those exotic pre-baby vacations we used to take.
We looked through photos and I busted out the journal/sketchbook I kept at the time and we reminisced about what has to be our favorite tropical getaway to date. Flipping through the pages got me thinking about doing something with all the doodles and memories from that first trip as a married couple and I knew I wanted incorporate them into a gift for Rupert. I worked with Shutterfly to create a custom mini collection of home goods for an intimate dinner-night-in with Rupert, using those prints and patterns from our honeymoon in the South Pacific.
You may have seen around Instagram that I’ve been putting some finishing touches in our master bathroom. After living with it for a couple years, I’ve finally added in the little details that made it feel complete. You wouldn’t think it would take much in a bathroom but even small changes like switching out the pendant lights or additions like a rug and some pretty towels, can make a big difference. READ MORE
I recently collected a few amazing pieces for the a-frame from Lulu & Georgia and while I was on the site I just kept finding more and more and then more unique home pieces that I wanted to make mine. It was the best kind of rabbit hole to fall into. I’d previously known them mostly for their rugs so I was pleasantly surprised when I found all sorts of home decor goodies and I’ve rounded up some of my faves, including a few of those that I had to make my own.
It is blueberry season, which has to be my absolute favorite fruit season. I grew up in Michigan blueberry picking with my mom every year around this time. We used to go this old farm where the blueberry bushes were the size of small trees. I could literally climb up the middle of the bush to get to the high branches that were out of reach. And while living in California sometimes it is hard to even notice the seasons, the days are a bit longer and warmer and blueberries are a plenty. KitchenAid® recently invited me to try out their Pro Line® Series Blender so to add to the summertime vibe, I’ve been making these super simple and delicious ‘blueberries & cream’ popsicles for Archie and I to nibble on. I am trying my best to keep the taste of summer lingering on as long as we can.
