Holiday Lunch at My Home

Happy Friday friends! I recently hosted a little holiday lunch for some lovely ladies. I would love to entertain more at my home but it’s always under renovation so I feel it’s never the right time. I try not to stress over the whole ordeal so I choose dishes that are really easy to prep. … More Holiday Lunch at My Home

My Holiday Bedroom

This past weekend, we went to a Christmas tree farm to get a tree for the kids’ bedroom. This is a holiday tradition that we just started last year for our little family. It’s fun for the kids and we also use the opportunity to take family holiday pictures. What better holiday backdrop than at … More My Holiday Bedroom

Staying Connected

Like most modern homes, at any given time— we could have up to six devices connected to wi-fi. I am the first to admit, occasionally I would allow my kids to go ham on their tablets so I could have some peace and quiet. I’m not sorry about it. Unless you’re responsible my kids and my … More Staying Connected

Springtime Magic

It doesn’t get more magical than when Spring arrives. We finally wake up to the sounds of birds chirping, there are all sorts of vibrant colors covering the ground, and as the days get longer— our weekend family getaways become more adventurous. It is also around this time that we look forward to gardening again. Our … More Springtime Magic

Snow Day

Today was an official snow day for us. The office shut down and the schools were closed. However, the hubs went to work because he works at the hospital and it never closes. I had to spend the day solo with the littles which makes me a little nervous. Lately, there has been a lot of terrible two … More Snow Day

Reflecting on 2016

It has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding year of my life so far. I have to say 2016 was the year that I truly understood the power of human connection. I started the year off a bit (actually, a whole lot) uncertain of where my professional life would take me. Throughout my … More Reflecting on 2016

Christmas Prep

Around this time of the year, Zoey and Axel know that Santa and his elves are working overtime to wrap and deliver presents to kids who are nice on Christmas eve. At our home, we are also prepping for Santa’s arrival. Our Christmas tree went up the week before Thanksgiving and the littles were overjoyed to help decorate. … More Christmas Prep

White Fireplace Mantels

Isn’t this such a good time to start using the fireplace? The mornings are chilly and on some days, it’s damp and gray. Even better! Imagine lounging in a robe, flipping through magazines, listening to French jazz and sipping lattes while enjoying the warmth of a crackling fireplace. Ah- heaven! Unfortunately, most of our fireplaces … More White Fireplace Mantels

Home Tour: A Brf Stinsen Condo in Gothenburg Sweden

This condo absolutely blows my mind. I would never dare do a black wall but somehow it works like magic here. Everything about this space is so beautiful and thoughtfully curated. It has been through several gentle renovations with all original details being preserved and restored as much as possible. The condo was built in 1899, … More Home Tour: A Brf Stinsen Condo in Gothenburg Sweden

A Dose of Fab

It’s all in the details. This is especially true when you want to elevate our daily life. You don’t have to make a huge purchase. Instead, get something small but meaningful and/or useful for your space and your daily life will be that much better. Here’s how two small but utterly stylish additions made my home … More A Dose of Fab
