To me, butter tarts mean Thanksgiving and Christmas and summer holidays, getting together with family and scrounging Granny's deep freeze for the endless assortment of treats she stores in there. Butter Tarts Recipe: 1 cup melted butter 3 cups... Continue reading

Emery just grew into her cloth diapers last week, and the first week of cloth diapering has gone so smoothly. We are three loads of laundry in and still no blow outs! So far I am very happy that we went with the Bum Genius 4.0 style diapers. They're one... Continue reading

I sure love the way our little one has slowed life down, and just as the nights are getting longer and the temperature cooler. It's always hard to get out of bed and off to class on a cold Fall morning, especially when a hot cup of gingerbread tea, a... Continue reading

My 'vision' for the living space in our new house is white white white with lots of living green! Oh yah, and to not spend much money in making this vision a reality. Thankfully I have lots of green thumbs in my life who have been giving me trimmings, succulents... Continue reading

On September 21 my sister-in-law Leah threw Emery and I the cutest baby shower! The theme is best described as 'woodland' I believe and it felt like a picnic in the woods on a red gingham blanket. It was perfect! There was punch in mason jars with cute birch tree... Continue reading

Some mornings just go perfectly. The baby sleeps well enough that I actually wake before her beckon for breakfast, am able to make my coffee properly and drink it while it's hot while taste-testing a thanksgiving butter tart, and then right when I have the girl packed up in the... Continue reading

We have been given so many beautiful and thoughtful homemade gifts for Emery, I should really do a post just on that! I have some very talented friends. Like my friend Kirsten who crocheted these matching burgundy head bands! We wore them to church yesterday. For as long as Emery... Continue reading

I worked away on this quilt all Spring and Summer. It was my road trip project and if you breathe it in real deep there's a slight aroma of campfire stuck to the wool. I dreamt of wrapping my baby up real cozy-like in it for months, and now she's... Continue reading

It's apple pie season! Bake a pie and share it with people you love. I took this pie to a games night with friends last night. Settlers of Catan and cinnamon-y apple goodness go hand in hand. Add a cup of hot tea and good company and you've got yourself... Continue reading

The vibrant colors, hints of cinnamon in every dessert and cooler temperatures perfect for cozy cuddles just get me every time. Here's to annual family photoshoots with leafy orange backdrops, unearthing big sweaters... Continue reading

^^Baking with a baby is much different than I had imagined. What used to take the 30 minutes between preparing dinner and having it served on the table now can take all day depending on Emery's mood. Take the apple cinnamon mini loaves pictured above. Emery's first mini-nap gave me... Continue reading

My mother was given this rocking chair while pregnant with my brother, so it's 27 years old! When they no longer had any use for it, the chair got placed out of the way on the deck where the sun, wind, snow and rain worked away at giving it this... Continue reading

The temperatures are dropping slowly, as are the leaves, making this Autumn long and sweet. After a random snowfall at the start of September I am not eager for more (just give me one more month of bright orange river valleys and pumpkin everything). We got out to enjoy it... Continue reading

I made this toque for our bear cub in the Spring and cannot remember how many stitches I cast on or the size of my circular needles, so like all 'knitspiration' posts it's really not much of a pattern at all. (Possible new years resolution: jot notes while knitting to... Continue reading
