• Sunday Scrolls: Last Day of May

    The days might drag on, but my goodness are these months flying by! Today, we’re following suit from last weekend and piling in the car to find a nature preserve outside city limits. I can’t wait to soak up the sunshine, breathe that beautiful country air, and help Grey keep a tally of all the new animals we see on our hike. Happy Sunday, fellow homebody. Thank you for spending a few minutes with us today!

  • The Morning Routine That Stuck from Quarantine

    I could write a whole post on the countless ways Quarantine has changed us. And I will. It’s something I’ve been giving a lot of space, and thought to. But this week I had an aha moment that stopped me in my tracks. Mornings are something I deeply, deeply look ...

  • Sunday Scrolls: Memorial Day Weekend

    Ahhh, a long weekend. Does it feel like it to you? I just read that Chicago has had both the longest, and most severe restrictions, in the *nation*. So we are desperately craving some normalcy, and something to celebrate (see bottom of the post for a truly special someone). Here ...

  • Sunday Scrolls: May 17th

    Happy weekend! I hope this finds you in front of a pile of pancakes with a piping hot cup of coffee and sun streaming through the window. I’ve been excited all week to share my amazon hack with you. I waited to make sure it worked, and it DID! That, ...

  • Pack Picks: Hardware Help & how-To

    First Step: do not get your hardware from a big box store if you can help it. Why? Because they lack personality. Everyone will have the same look in their kitchen. And it’s way more fun to support small shops with far greater quality for the same price (or less!). ...

  • Pack Picks: Cleaning Must-Haves for your Home

    We’ve never had a cleaning crew. Just us. And it definitely could be because we’re cheap 😆; but it could also be because we’re both Type A neat freaks, and dare I say we actually find enjoyment in the process of cleaning our house. Here are the must-haves in our ...

  • Parenting in a Pandemic: Resources that (really!) help

    I’ve learned something about myself during this stretch at home; I’m not very good at asking for help. Never have been, really. But like you, I’m trying to find a balance between working, homeschooling, worrying, trying to maintain normalcy, keeping our family healthy…all the things. And more than anything else; ...

  • How To Sell Your Home During COVID-19

    Yes, it’s possible. I just want to get that out of the way first, because it’s true, and important. Jon and I have been Licensed Real Estate Brokers since 2005, and I learned this fact very early on: No matter the time of year, results of the presidential election, weather, ...

  • Sunday Scrolls: May 3rd (it’s a good one!)

    What does your new normal look like in a day? Ours is a mix of homeschooling our preschooler, fitting in work where we can, whipping up far too many baked goods in the kitchen, and desperately counting the minutes until our nightly neighborhood stroll. Here are a few other things ...
