Cabin life in the mountain with kids

Heading to the mountains with our new portable speaker

November 3, 2017

This post is sponsored by Verizon however the thoughts and opinions in this post are mine.  I’m watching snow flakes float out my window on the EARLIEST snowfall I’ve ever seen in Seattle in years-are you as excited as I am to start the weekend already?  And even though we’re only getting a dusting here, […]

Tuft and Needle Seattle

Why I need a whole new bedroom now thanks to my mattress

November 1, 2017

I am going to have to overhaul my bedroom.  This all started with an invite I received in my email from Tuft and Needle for the opening of its brand new Seattle store.  This online mattress company from Phoenix was coming to Seattle and wanted influencers to check out their new brick and mortar store in […]

Hot Cocoa and snowy northwest weekends

Hot cocoa and snowy northwest weekends for the win!

October 16, 2017

I used to dread the period between October and February a little in the Pacific Northwest.  The days get shorter and we go for weeks on end with chilly, wet, dreary weather.  During stretches like this it’s easy to wonder if we’ll ever see sun-filled days again.  But then a few years ago we went […]

Am I right when I say that when you grow up, a grocery store isn’t just a grocery store anymore?  Adulting with kids is SO hard some days that just escaping SOLO to the grocery store and slowly, purposefully, SILENTLY picking out delightful bits and bites at whim can be such a peaceful way to feel […]

Slowing down in the New Year

Warm socks, an Apple Watch and slowing down in the New Year

January 5, 2017

How many days have whizzed by this New Year? I’m trying not to count. This year, I’m making an effort to take each day as it comes. I’ve spent the last couple weeks (yes all of Christmas!) totally under the weather and it made the holiday season a little quieter and slower, but it also made […]
