♥ Blog Love ♥

Melissa's blog, Dear Baby, is one of my favorite's to read. She writes so personally and really makes you feel like you're her closest friend by sharing stories about her journey in parenting and love of vintage clothes.

She, with her hubby and cute baby girl (and another on the way!), try to live their days to the fullest and laugh a lot along the way. It'll truly brighten your day.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful story and little family with us, Melissa!

Monday and a Bodega Cat

This is what I feel like today. I'm exhausted and still have so much left to do today and for the rest of the week. Ugh.

Happy Monday...

Things I Love: Kiss Painting!

Saw this fun little video this morning on one of my favorite blogs: Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno.

How cute is this?

Things I Love: Crocheted Bikes!

Seriously? This is one of the cutest things ever! Crocheted bike covers by Dutch company: Simeli. If it was bike riding weather I would totally get in on this! Maybe if I start now, I can make my own crocheted bike cover by next spring...haha...maybe.

Sugar Town

On this freezing, miserable day I am going to pretend that I am in Sugar Town (wherever that is) with Nancy Sinatra. PS how awesome is her outfit? LOVE.

Food Rules

My own food rules are pretty similar to what Marion Nestle writes, which are never to eat a food with:

More than five ingredients (too processed)
An ingredient you can’t pronounce (ditto)
Anything artificial (ditto)
A health claim on the front (these are always about marketing, not health)
A cartoon on the package (it’s being marketed to kids)

I'm loving this chart instructing you how to eat. It's not that complicated!

New York City feels like the inside of a snow globe today.

This summer, Hubs and I spent quite a bit of time traveling around Scandinavia and had a particularly amazing time in Norway. This lovely and snowy wedding is the perfect blend of cozy and traditional Norsk (which is pretty cozy anyway!).

Stay warm xx

What I'm loving right now...

Just a little post to ease back into blogging...

After a challenging several months it's time to get back out into the world.

And what better way than window shopping for pretty things!



An awesome restaurant treehouse!
