Trader Joe’s Cheese Plate

Trader Joe’s Cheese Plate

I recently made a cheese plate for Friendsgiving and was so pleased with how it turned out!  I  bought everything from Trader Joe’s — which is definitely my go-to for the best cheese plate supplies! I started with four kinds of cheese — brie, cranberry chèvre goat cheese, unexpected cheddar cheese, syrah-soaked Toscano cheese. Then I added two types of crackers (fig and olive crisps + gluten-free savory thin crackers) plus fig butter, salami, prosciutto, cotton candy grapes, blackberries, dried apricots, candied walnuts, and marcona rosemary almonds. I topped it with some rosemary sprigs for some extra color and viola – an easy-ish, affordable cheese […]

Lucy and Winnie’s Colorful Christmas Tree!

Lucy and Winnie’s Colorful Christmas Tree!

The girls, like most kids, are OBSESSED with the holidays. Lucy especially talks about Christmas ALL year long. This year, I wanted to put a little Christmas tree in their room, filled with colorful and whimsical ornaments. Their room is such a colorful and sunshine-y space, and I  wanted their little tree to have that same magic. ✨ I  ordered this small 4 foot artificial white tree and filled it with pink ornaments and other fun ornaments inspired by their room (🌈☀️)  and their interests (animals, dessert, etc. 🐰🍦). It brings SO much joy to them and they really love it so much! It makes […]

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 […]

‘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 […]

Fall Patio Refresh

Fall Patio Refresh

Hi friends! Today, I’m excited to share how we recently refreshed our back patio in partnership with Article. But first, let me back up. We bought our home a little over three years ago in October 2019. When we moved in, the back door led to a concrete step down to a concrete pathway in the backyard. You can see a ‘before’ photo here. It was definitely not kid-friendly and it didn’t look very pretty! In April 2020, we added on a deck and it’s been TRULY one of the areas of our home we use the most. The girls spend a ton of time […]

Bunk Bed Inspiration, Ideas & Plans!

Bunk Bed Inspiration, Ideas & Plans!

Hi friends! What started as a ‘let’s think about getting the girls bunk beds’ turned into me going into a deep rabbit hole learning about bunk beds! Today, I’m going to share more about different bunk bed options I found, including dimensions, photos, links to shop, etc. For reference, the girls share a room and both are in matching Stokke cribs. Here’s a post all about their shared nursery! When they were much younger, we had the Stokke cribs in the ‘Mini’ size and over the years have added inserts and larger mattresses. Right now, Winnie is in the standard oval crib size and Lucy […]
