Our Favorite Halloween Books

Our beloved Halloween books always put the biggest smiles on the kids faces. We bring them out when we put up our decorations, and they get a kick out of reading through some of their favorite stories. We have a tradition of giving each of them a new book each year, so we’ve grown quite […]

Baked Apple Donuts

The other day I had a chance to recipe test and decided on baked apple donuts. I was really looking forward to spending some time in the kitchen among the sweet smell of sugar and cinnamon. I put the kids upstairs for nap/quiet time and got to baking quick. I hit a couple of roadblocks […]

Grilled Chicken and Cous Cous Mediterranean Bowls

Back in 2005 my dad’s side of the family took a trip to Greece together. It was incredible and filled with memories I’ll never forget.

flank steak tacos with cilantro lime crema

We’ve been in a Taco Tuesday funk lately. And when I say we, I really mean me because I typically plan out our meals for the week (with Brett’s input of course). We used to religiously eat tacos every Tuesday and really enjoyed trying different recipes every couples of weeks, but over the past several […]

Last summer, we expanded and reshaped some of our garden beds in the back and front of our house, and discussed taking a year to think about what we wanted to plant and how we’d want to landscape everything. Spoiler alert: we […]

Easter Basket inspiration 2021

It’s hard to believe that this time last year I was extremely pregnant, waiting on our loft to be turned into Sage’s room, and at the start of what I thought would be a week of social distancing. If only I knew then what I know now. I still remember putting the kids’ baskets together […]

Valentine’s Day Cake Pops

Just one more sweet recipe before Valentine’s Day! I’m a little relieved because all of this sugar around the house is killing me. Target’s valentine section got me good and I find myself digging for all the candy bags in our pantry. It doesn’t help that I’m in full hibernation mode over here. It’s been […]
