Loving Paper & Stitch

Written by | filed under Currently Loving | 3 comments

If you’ve been wondering when I was going to spotlight another one of my favorite reads, you’re in luck! Today is the day. (Because I know you’ve been waiting with bated breath.) There are some blogs you follow and you’re like, “Ooo that’s pretty, I like that.” Then, there are other blogs you follow and you’re all like, “Yup. I want that. I want to eat that. Yes! I am so going to make that!” Paper & Stitch is the latter …

This year is the year that after many years of renting, Bob and I are hoping to finally to own our own home. The jury is still out on whether we will design and build that home from the ground up or buy a house, but either way, I have basically been thinking about it constantly for the last several weeks. Maybe it’s the whole having a newborn baby thing and wanting to give her and the big kids (as we …

Good morning, and happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. With loads of friends and family in town for our baby shower, mine was a complete and total whirlwind. Our house is now pretty much covered end to end with super cute baby paraphernalia and I’m honestly exhausted this morning as we start the week. That said, if you want to see a little tiny sneak peek of the shower you can pop on over to Instagram and #thesweetestbebe. …

Happy Monday, friends! So here’s the deal. Are you following me on Instagram yet? I may or may not have spilled the beans on the gender of our little nugget over there last week! We are so excited that at last week’s ultrasound (after three attempts) the little one finally cooperated and showed us the goods. It’s officially game on when it comes to all things baby! I’ve kicked nursery designing and planning into high gear and picked up the …

Good morning, friends! How was your weekend? The weather here was gorgeous and I took a much needed break, stepping away from the computer entirely yesterday. I’ve been avoiding the heat (me + pregnancy + heat = no bueno), but it was so good to get outside, enjoy a day on the boat, sit in the sunshine and unplug. As it goes in my brain though, while I was “unplugged” I was thinking about what’s going on behind the scenes at …

Loving Palm Leaf Patterns

Loving Palm Leaf Patterns

Written by | filed under Currently Loving | 4 comments

Every once in a while a trend comes along with which I just fall totally in love. The palm leaf trend, my friends, is one of those. I love how it feels both really traditional, super modern and ever so positively tropical. I also adore that it can move seamlessly from home decor to fashion to party decor, all the while just feeling really really cool. These are just a few of the ways that I’m loving palm leaf patterns …

Loving a Lakeside Summer Vacation

Loving a Lakeside Summer Vacation

Written by | filed under Currently Loving, Summer | 4 comments

I’m not sure if it’s being sick this week or just a serious need for a vacation, but this week all I can think about is running away to a little lakeside cabin in the woods. The perfect summer vacation in my book consists of long, lazy lakeside days spent swimming from the dock, reading books, making s’mores and cooking dinner over the campfire. Late afternoon walks before dinner, maybe a cat nap or two. The weather this week has …

Any day now I’m going to stop complaining about the snow. Seriously. I promise. Any day now. In an effort to make today that day, can we talk about these gorgeous DIY planters? They’re cropping up everywhere and I’ve seen so many that I absolutely love. From hanging planters to pretty little gems that will dress up your desk or bookshelf with just the right amount of sparkle and greenery, these planters are simple enough for even the most novice …

Loving Kids Rooms

Loving Kids Rooms

Written by | filed under Currently Loving, Living | 3 comments

Lately I’ve been finding myself really seriously inspired by kids rooms. Specifically of the beautiful, modern and largely neutral-hued variety. Whether it be with Scandinavian inspired black and white or bright white walls with subtle pops of juicy color, I find these rooms to be so much more sophisticated than the primary colored kids rooms of yore, while still retaining a certain charm and nostalgia that I find irresistible. Think of these rooms like a beautiful canvas just begging for …

Loving Neon Pumpkins

Loving Neon Pumpkins

As we ease our way into Halloween and the fall holiday season, I’m finding myself falling in love with brightly colored neon pumpkins, which were a huge trend last fall. It’s such a fun way to add a splash of festive seasonal cheer to your home or front porch without diving headfirst into the classic autumnal shades of brown, red, orange and gold. Whether they be big orange pumpkins or tiny little white gourds, every squash you can think of …

Loving Indigo

Loving Indigo

Written by | filed under Currently Loving | 1 comment

I’ve been in love with moody hues of indigo for the longest time. Years, in fact. (Evidence here from 2+ years ago.) So I am loving that the indigo color is making a major comeback at the moment. Although, is indigo ever really out of style? I vote no. I think I love indigo because it’s somehow modern, classic, romantic and sultry all at the same time. Indigo is having such a moment right now and I am wild about …

Loving A Lobster Boil

Loving A Lobster Boil

Lobster boils, clam bakes, seafood boils – I’m obsessed! (I’ve mentioned this before, I know I know.) Lately though, I’m really hurting for a classic Maine lobster boil. I want the bib, the salt potatoes dripping in butter, the blueberry cobbler to finish it all off. I will tell you that lobster is my favorite food in the entire world other than ice cream. Give me the two of them together in one meal? Holy cannoli. That’s my kind of …
