linger / buy / read / try



We watched the sun rise this morning for the first time in weeks due to clouds, the perfect and most simplest of gifts on Valentine’s Day. Although I’m not sure why, this week seemed particularly exhausting, so I’m fairly thrilled that Friday’s finally here and our weekend is beginning. Mark and I are closing on our new house this morning (!) and planning to enjoy tons of time outdoors with the kids throughout our projected-to-be sunny weekend. Do you have anything special planned? I hope it’s a good one for you. If you have some time to bum around the web, here’s a few of my favorites from the week.

linger // Earlier this week, Elise of Pennyweight shared images of her new bedroom. I love the warmer shade of blue she chose for the wall coupled with that killer industrial lamp and minimal, eclectic decor.

buy // All of this grey weather lately has me craving green life. We won’t be in our new home soon enough to build a spring/summer garden, but at the very least, I look forward to planting some fresh herbs. I love these vintage-inspired herb scissors from Father Rabbit–perfect for trimming a few sprigs of mint or rosemary for dinner.

read // A few days ago, Kacie shared really powerful words about forming relationships rather than judgements in these online spaces. Although she speaks mostly about motherhood, her points transcend demographics and online life: building and connecting instead of comparing and judging–a worthy read for you today.

try // Kale is a part of our daily routine here. We eat it with eggs and fresh salsa  almost every morning. Sometimes we’ll make kale chips or add it to soups or sauté it with dinner. I love this vegetable, so I’m really anxious to try Megan’s recipe, Kale salad and tahini garlic dressing, sometime soon.

  2. Bethany,
    Thank you so much for sharing my post. I agree, it’s not just about parenting or motherhood but really about relationships in general.. and thank you for the nice comment you left on the post as well.
