*cleaning out the art cabinet…. I'm a sucker for organizing crafty bits… 

*granola with coconut oil & nut butters and a sesame honey flavor, so good.

*the owl obsession is at a whole new level now with these visitors in the oak trees outside… they've been here every day for over a week…. 

*green salads and green smoothies…. good stuff

*what my table looks like most days at lunch…. just shove the stuff aside and eat!

*hot-cold-hot-cold weather…. we go from turning the heat on to throwing box fans in the window to cool things down. it will be 55 one day and 75 the next

*lego obsession meets fork lift obsession (papa, hide those keys at the shop this summer!)

*wine & banjo…. love

Today I am looking around at the chaos and trying my best to love it. (inspired by this) I started our morning with this song. Thank you Erin!

I'm loving, LOVING this new album… this song made me laugh out loud and another had me all choked up looking at that sweet man I married. Damn I'm a lucky girl. For reals. (and sappy…. totally sappy)

I want to drink red wine and eat dark chocolate sprinkled with sea salt while lounging on this beauty and surfing through Cynthia's quilt board on pinterest. Speaking of quilts….. this is a sweet little story of my own creations. Have you seen this girl's mad skills? I am in love with her art, I'm so looking forward to it coming out in fabric this spring… 

And speaking of spring, my mama's birthday gift to me was a spot in not one, but both of these courses. Again…. how did I get so lucky? I'm counting down the days….. they look amazing!! I'm headed to make more granola and a grapefruit cake with whipped cream and blackberries…. because that sounds like so much more fun than helping Luke clean up the tornado in his room.

Happy Monday

  2. I will share the granola. I'm hoping to get back into the habit of posting recipes on Mondays for my "monday bites" posts. Look for it next week 🙂 It's awesome! I'm glad to know I have company in the messy table….

  3. So cool that you have an owl visitor! Those courses your mama got you do indeed sound amazing. I’ll have to look into those too. I found your blog from the natural kids etsy team and am enjoying your lovely photos!

  5. The owl has been amazing for the kids…. especially since we live smack in the middle of suburbia. My mama is a sweet one…. I've been eyeing those courses for quite some time. I'm hoping to take several ecourses throughout the year to feed my inner artist a bit. Thank you for the photo compliments 🙂

  6. I'll give details on the cake tomorrow…. so good! The book is awesome!! So good in fact that I bought it after I returned it to the library. It just arrived yesterday & I'm hoping to get some sewing done very soon for my little guy 🙂 By far the best boy sewing book. Good basics, a little funky & very practical!

  8. Yeah 🙂 I'm totally not surprised by the way…. you seem like an ANI kind of girl. I just got her newest album (digital) and have enjoyed the conversation it sparks between my teenage girl & I. Good stuff! And another fantastic album by Ani…..
