I wanted to share more about some new-ish Moroccan pillows I have available in my textile shop, Shop Lucky Collective. The checkered -pillows are handmade in Morocco from beni ourain rugs, which are thick and fluffy wool pile rug made in Moroccan Atlas mountain region. The checkered beni ourain pillows seem to be very popular, but right now, I have a few colors available, including black, pink, rust/yellow/gold, green, blue/turquoise, and purple.

Girls Bedroom with Bunkbed Tour!

Girls Bedroom with Bunkbed Tour!

Hi friends! Today I’m excited to share about a new(ish) update to the girls’ room – bunk beds! But first, let me back up. Ever since I found out I was pregnant, we knew we would have our kids room share. This is what Lucy’s room originally looked like for the first year-ish that we lived in Nashville. After Winnie was born, the room went through a few different iterations, from a crib (for Lucy) and Moses basket (for Winnie) to two matching Stokke cribs (mini crib size for Winnie and with extender for Lucy so it was more like a bed). You can see […]

travel adventures: belize

Hi friends! We recently got back from our first international trip in 2+ years (and Winnie’s first ever trip abroad!). After so much time at home and an obviously overwhelming, anxiety-inducing, weird, and hard couple of years, we were eager and so grateful to (safely) explore a new country as a family. 🎉 Today, I want to share a ton of photos from our trip, plus some more info! It feels GOOOOOD to be sharing about travel again! ✈️ ⛱ At the bottom of this post, you can find links to our other Travel Adventures including visiting Portugal, Amsterdam, Paris, Belgium, and Morocco with kid(s).

Reflections from the other side of COVID

Reflections from the other side of COVID

NOTE: I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share this, or to just write it for myself as a way of reflecting. More recently, especially with the new Omicron variant (ugh!), I’ve had more friends test positive and I am just so bummed for them. Hopefully this post in some very small way, shape, or form will be encouraging to those who get a dreaded positive test. Sending love, friends. — As most of you probably know, we got Covid in October, and today, I want to share some reflections and learnings from that experience. 💛 I’m intentionally not going into certain specifics – like […]

‘the christmas room’ holiday tour

‘the christmas room’ holiday tour

Happy holidays, friends! Today I  wanted to share our Christmas tree with you! For two years now, Lucy has called our front living room ‘the Christmas room’ all year long. It’s so sweet! Naturally, this HAD to be the room we put our tree in again. The first year we lived here, the tree was in the corner in front of the narrow window, to the left of the fireplace. The second two Christmases we put the tree in the corner where the built-ins are now. It looked so pretty there (although when that corner didn’t have a Christmas tree there, it sort of just […]

holiday reflections: present over perfect

holiday reflections: present over perfect

my holiday mantra this year and every year is PRESENT over perfect.  this has stuck with me since I first read it from one of my favorite authors @sniequist years ago. she shares that ‘our grounded, present self is more important than any activity we do and gift we give. that we can be fully here as our imperfect, messy, tired but wholly present selves, or we can miss it — these moments and conversations — because we’re trying and failing to make everything just perfect. It’s easy to see others’ seemingly perfect lives this season – the curated stockings and Advent calendars, the impeccably […]
