This is a post I have been so excited about putting together. Last year for our anniversary we decided to get a "couples" gift. (ie: something we could both use and enjoy and something that might otherwise be a bit frivolous/we didn't "need.") We opted for an ice cream maker! When mike went to cooking school, ice cream was his favourite take-away (lucky me!) but the trick to really good homemade ice cream (or so he tells me) is a good ice cream maker. So almost a year ago we ordered one and it arrived on our doorstep. But, as is the case with these sort of appliances, it sat in the box.... until this summer! It was a tad bit intimidating to tackle, but now that we have the hang of it, we've made ice cream a couple times and the fear is gone. Good for my appetite, bad for my postpartum bod goals but eh, I'll take the ice cream ;)
I’m so excited to share our Fall Project today. I have wanted to do a post on our new “sitting room" since we finished it in early November but I was sleep deprived for the majority of that month and my mom brain couldn’t handle the thought of actually hooking my camera up to my computer.
If you follow me on Instagram you've probably noticed how most of my pictures take place in our kitchen. In person, I'm always dreaming about how I'd love a bigger kitchen with white cupboards and a white oversized farm house sink and ours is certainly none of the above. But really when it comes down to it,
Working on this nursery for June has easily been the my most favourite project I've put together. We decided her room would be our old guest bedroom and looking back at the way I threw that room together, it was almost as if I was subconsciously anticipating it becoming a baby's room someday. It makes sense because I do love pastels and bright colours, and I seem to naturally gravitate towards interior decorating that's best suited for a baby's room... something that became much more apparent to me as I started pulling items from around the house to add to the space.
