Coffee! Of course! My parents use a Keurig machine, but I bet I can find some interesting flavors to give my dad for gifts. Thank you!

I am totally about just doing what you enjoy - it can get way too overwhelming to try to keep up with every social media channel out there.
Yeah, it's always hard to know whether we've made the right decisions. I try not to dwell on it or regret it either, and keep in mind that it's there if I ever want to go back to it.

I've been intrigued by this book ever since I heard about it. (Sadly - though happily! - we'll be away working at a camp all summer, so I'll have to figure out how to get my hands on a library copy somewhere.) Anyway! I so agree with the storing clothes in plastic. I hate having to wash everything after storing it for months because it smells like a storage bin, so I'm all about drawers and closets getting used. Thanks for sharing this! Thumbs up emoji!

I love it. I find traditions fascinating, and I think it's wonderful that you've found a way to keep a part of home in your new place.

Hope you are enjoying Hawaii. Missing your daily posts but we'll see you in a week! Happy sunshine days, ocean waves, and tropical fruit.

Love this idea...so sweet and sentimental. It makes me wish that we had done something like it, but we had a wonderful wedding that I loved so much. What a treat it must be each anniversary!

This is a great review, and great insight. My husband and I have toyed with the idea of each getting a Fitbit, but have resisted so far, as I'm not sure it's quite the right kind of motivation we need. BUT, my sister got one a year or so ago (her boss got every person at her office one who wanted - so awesome), and she'll walk laps during her lunch break to make sure she'll make her step count.

I just started the Nightingale! Seems like it's going to be an excellent book.

Yeah, its so good! And Im with you - cereal doesnt keep me very satiated, but I find by adding a handful of cashews or sunflower seeds or something, the staying power is much better. And its tasty!

Its so good! Possibly the best pizza Ive ever had. My husband went with his brother once, and they got a pizza drizzled with avocado oil that he said was amazing.

When I saw your celebration emoji banner on Instagram last night I immediately showed my husband - too adorable! I know you're super busy with GTWB, but I swear you could sell a few of those banners in your shop and they'd fly! :) Congrats!

Yay Elise! Congrats on the beautiful book! Do you think you'd ever offer something like this that holds the workbook portions (without the calendar)? I have a calendar system already, but would definitely be interested in a small notebook that would fit in my purse that I could use for journaling, brainstorming, writing down goals and to do lists. :)

Yeah, lots of farms and mountains - it's gorgeous! And yes to ice cream cones! Might have to get Blizzards this weekend. Mmm.

Can't wait to see the launch! I'm very curious. :) I am loving my morning walks with our pup. We've been getting out most mornings, and I love the early sunlight and quiet.

Aw, so fun. Can't wait to read about the shower. And I love hearing about when pregnant ladies start to nest! :)

I love love love those two photos and can't wait to see more over the years. Fun idea. Where do you have this displayed in your house?

You have such a beautiful home! I love seeing all of your wall art - that's my favorite part. My husband and I keep looking online at homes and can't wait to purchase a house one day. We are so ready to settle down someplace for a long time.
