We have some big news over here.
“Karisa- we already know you’re pregnant.”
Last weekend was one of the first in a long time that we made it out for an adventure day just the three of us. The weather wasn’t exceptional, but we decided “the heck with it” and headed down to Seattle and Pike Place for the day.
I thought I’d share some of the beautiful items and shops that I’ve been crushing on recently. How do I find these people? Through Instagram really. There are some really cool companies out there started by hard working, entrepreneurial women, men, moms, and fathers. On their sites and in their IG feeds you get to read their stories of where they began, where they source their materials, and just how much passion they have behind their products. I’ll share tidbits below with my favorite products (that I either own, have on a wish list, oooor might have coming in the mail right now.)
I hope I was able to introduce you to some great new companies today. Any of these would make a very special gift to mama or friend. Supporting USA business’ is a cool opportunity and is so beautiful when you know the stories behind the products. Do you have other favorite local stores that you think I’d love? Share them in the comments below!
I hope you all had a blessed Easter!
I woke up (much too early) excited to celebrate our risen savior, bake a cake, and drive up to Anacortes, WA to attend church with my parents, sister and brother-in-law, and my growing up home town church family. It was a beautiful service and we had a wonderful sunny and warm (!!!!) day eating and playing out in my folk’s big yard.
This week I turned 26 weeks pregnant what the what?! Baby girl is busting a move, with probably all my awkward dance techniques, basically non stop while I’m laying and sitting. It’s adding to the excitement of getting to meet her in just another few short months. It’s still kind of unreal, but in an amazing way.
So there haven’t really been a lot of noteworthy house projects happening recently. There has been necessary maintenance happening around the house for spring which kept us busy all last weekend: weeding, spreading new bark, trimming bushes, pressure washing the decks and patios. All great things for a fresh look, but not so fascinating for pictures. ;)
After all the nursery inspiration from Nursery Week (start here then click next post to see them all), I couldn’t wait to create a design board for our next nursery. We’re anticipating the kiddos sharing a room, so I put my thinking cap on and designed a gender neutral shared nursery.
