January | 2016

“The thing is to become a master and in your old age to acquire the courage to do what children did when they knew nothing.”

- Henry Miller

January is full of fresh starts and big dreams for me, and this month didn't disappoint! From new artwork to life with littles (and some BIG EXCITING NEWS THIS SPRING - no, we're not pregnant, moving, or lottery winners), we celebrated a wonderful start to the new year.



Oh, Rifle Paper Co., you made an Alice's Adventures in Wonderland calendar? I have to have it.

The illustrations are gorgeous (as expected) and I can't wait to use them as art for Alice's room next year! Find it here.

Lots done, lots to do!

Still enjoying the wooden rainbow set Aunt Lynnie gave us for Christmas!

jalapeno cheddar loaf

My mister is the bees knees at making bread. In all objectivity, his loaves rival and beat the local bakery - hands down.

The Kaufmann Mercantile Guide

I've been a long-time follower and consumer of KM and when I saw their new book I knew it would be the perfect thing to please my difficult-to-delight/surprise husband for Christmas. It's proven to be a handy little book! (Complimentary color scheme - couldn't help myself.)

I could have edited that bump out, but this is the reality of living with a pint-sized climbing maniac. Always accessorized with rug-burns, bruises, and scratches!

Curious Alice

Do you see the subtle primary triadic color scheme??? Really can't help myself!
