Knitting With Juniper

A few weeks ago I decided to try and reteach myself how to knit. I had big dreams of knitting up some beautiful fair isle Christmas stockings. (Maybe someday.) After a good hour of yelling at my yarn and getting laughed at by my wonderful husband, Juniper decided to show me how its done. So…

Nine Months

Guess who is nine months old now? (Well, this post is a few days late but whatever) It’s funny how when you are pregnant, nine months seems like FOREVER, but after the baby is born it seems like no time at all. Flynn is one extremely curious little guy. He is far too interested in…

Traditions

We started a new family tradition this year. Christmas Eve + Warm Fire + Hot Chocolate in Santa Mugs + Roasted Mini Marshmallows + Christmas Records = A lovely evening with my sweetie. When the kids are older, we’ll let them join in. Maybe

Christmas Love

Oh Christmas, how do I love thee. I love the lights, decorations and yummy treats. I love the challenge of finding that perfect gift for loved ones. I love spending time laughing and playing with family. I love starting new traditions. And most of all, I love that Christmas represents the most amazing gift ever…

{Recipe} Smores Bark

We have had an unusually high amount of chocolate around here lately, with the holidays and all. After we made peppermint bark last week I was in a chocolate melting mood, and we had some mini marshmallows leftover from Juniper’s birthday party so I thought I’d make some smores bark! Seemed like a good idea.…

My Sweet Juniper

This past Friday my sweet little girl turned three years old. Three. She’s grown up so much in this past year, it’s killing me. She’s the most energetic and sweetest kid I’ve ever met. I am so grateful to have her in my life.

Colorful Cookies

I’ve been a little preoccupied lately putting together a little birthday celebration for my Juniper. (I still can’t believe she is going to be 3 tomorrow, and I’m sure I will express similar feelings every year until I die.) Today we baked some super colorful cookies. (I got the idea from this post on Tablespoon.)…

Princess Crown

We stumbled across this cute dress up crown tutorial tonight, and Juniper just had to have one. She even helped me pick out the fabric and sat on my lap while I sewed it together. Needless to say, she is sleeping with her new crown on, and I don’t think she’ll take it off any…

Snow and Clamshells

We woke up to a pretty surprise today, our first snow! So fun! And yes, those are socks… I don’t own any gloves yet ha! We celebrated our first snow day by building our very first fire in our fireplace. Perfect for warming up after the inevitable snow ball fight. After lunch, I got some…

DIY Candy Cane Garland

When I saw this Candy Cane Bunting tutorial on Smashed Peas and Carrots, I was inspired to put together my own version with real candy canes. I just love how putting two candy canes together makes a heart. (Back to my heart-shaped obsession.) So here’s what you’ll need: candy canes, cotton thread, decorative ribbon or…
