Merry Holidays + Our Favorites

sectional | faux fur throw | sconce | coffee table | chair | curtains + rod | rug (similar) I just re-read our post from one year ago (almost to the day), and I was overcome with a strong surge of warmth and happiness. 2017 was a wild ride, but 2018? 2018 changed us. We met the […]

An Easy, Fun + Colorful Holiday Hosting Idea (+ a Giveaway!)

This post is in partnership with Amara.  Are you the Hosting Household for holiday festivities? Every year around this time, the chatter begins amongst our friends about who will be in town (most of us) and who will be down to lounge in pajamas all day and eat pie (yes, please). Often times, we’ll gather […]

2016, You’ve Been Real.

Do you take time, as the end of December comes near, to look back on the year? We’ve been thinking a lot about what 2016 has brought. We started the year with our big three-room-renovation, and in February, we allowed ourselves a week off to enjoy the warm sun with our friends. As soon as we […]

A thoughtful token that […]

A Simple Tree Skirt Alternative

It’s not yet Thanksgiving, but this Sunday, we put up our Christmas tree! Considering that we almost skipped the tradition entirely last year, this makes it the first time we’ve done so before slicing into turkey. (Also a first? Holiday music in November. I’ll take it!) Although it’s the earliest we’ve been on the Christmas […]

3 Things for a Very Merry Pet Shop Holiday

ONE. It’s October (surprise!), and maybe it’s our late nights of cleaning and gutting our garden unit – or maybe it’s our growing frustration at the lack of tied-up-ends in our home (yes, definitely this!) – but time is flying. November is around the corner, and for the last few weeks, we’ve watched our Pet […]
