Spring + Cherry Orchard Walk

Yesterday Jon and I took the kids for a walk through the cherry orachard like we do every year. Growing up amongst the orchards here Jon now finds it nostalgic to walk up and down the rows in full bloom, listing to the bees buzzing and watching the process of pollination happen. 

Watching him walk around the orchard with our two little ones, I fell in love all over again. I was reminded of one of the many reasons I fell in love with Jon. His ability to romanticize the most simple of things, and turn them into something amazing and beautiful. Then his vaulnrability in his verbalizing and sharing those simple and romantic things. 

This. This is why I moved to Lake Chelan. For moments like this when time seems to stand still and todays worries now cease to exists. The buzz of life's busieness is replaced with Jon skipping out of work and I leaving the dirty dishes in the sink, all to pack up the kids and walk around an orchard and listen to a more literal buzz, of bees.

Home Decor with Urban Walls

I'm so excited to be partnering up with Urban Walls Home Decor once again!

Changing our nursery from baby girl to baby boy was a super easy task, thanks to Urban Walls! Instead of painting our nursery pink when Vienna was occupying it we opted for Urban Walls decals to create a more gender neutral space that felt organic and natural. We love using wall decals in our home to add that final special something that ties the room together! 

 

We opted for the Blue Airplane Set of wall decals for Jameson's nursery. It comes with 14 airplanes 11" wide and 10" tall. The airplanes are more of a statement decal where as for Vienna's nursery her little gold hearts were an accent to make the rest of the gold pop. 

Stay tuned next month to see Vienna's new 'Big Girl' room and how we encorperated decals in her room. 

Here are are a few more shots from Jameson's Baby Boy Nursery!

8 Rules for Visiting Mom + Newborn

One of your friends of family just had a baby and you cant wait to meet this new bundle of joy! BUT, before you do, here are 8 Rules for visiting Mom + Newborn.

IMG_0521.JPG
  1. Schedule + Courtesy Text.

    (don't just show up in-announced) 

  2. Bring Coffee or Food.

    (we're sleep deprived and nurishing two) 

  3. Wash Your Hands + Don't Even Chance Sickness.

    (just do it) 

  4. Leave Your Own Children at Home.

    (our new world is already crazy, help us tone down the anxiety) 

  5. Don't Ask to Hold the Newborn.

    (mom will hand off baby when she's ready to) 

  6. Ask How Shes Feeling.

    (we need to feel important and heard) 

  7. Help Out Around the House.

    (help with laundry, do the dishes, take the sibling for a 10 minute walk outside) 

  8. Don't Overstay Your Welcome.

    (Better safe than sorry)
