Start Small

I am an overthinker. I'm an enneagram 6 (if you know about that) and that means I love LOVE to think about things. Everything. Mostly in an effort to find clarity and fully understand the world. It also is a personality trait to become incredibly loyal to causes I...

5 Ways to Treat Yourself This Month

We're living in tough times and it can be difficult to find time or mental space to really search for a moment of peace, but I've found it to be essential for me now, as a parent of two small kids, working, running a business, etc. If I don't treat myself right,...

Yakima Valley

IS IT EMBARASSING TO SAY I DIDN’T DISCOVER THE EASTERN SIDE OF THIS STATE UNTIL I WAS A GROWN ADULT? Turns out, I married someone who’s family moved here from over the mountains, so I knew there was bound to be a lot of Eastern Washing- ton travels in my life. When I...

All in a Day

While we’re easing back into travel and getting out, we’re starting with some family friendly day trips. I’ll be honest, we are really out of practice when it comes to travelling... especially with kids. We haven’t taken a big trip in quite some time. We have two...

Let’s Go Somewhere

Now that I’ve got my vaccine, I can’t help but wonder what it’s like out there... have things changed? Is anything open? Will traveling be fun again? I’ve been a pretty avid traveler for most of my life. Starting as a kid, we often travelled to see family, I started...

THANKS INTERNET. Who knew so many flowers were edible!? While I’ve been working on designing my garden, I’ve also been learning more about all of the plants we already have growing here. Our garden is fairly large and bordered by trees, bushes and flowers. It’s fun...

Reduce, Reduce, Reduce

Reduce, Reduce, Reduce

I think that unintentionally, through choosing to live in a small town, I’ve naturally found ways to reduce my waste and environmental impact. Maybe because of personality? I honestly don’t like shopping and I love being organized... and being organized is easier when...

A hot market in a small town... what a strange time to own a house! We live in Aberdeen, WA - a small coastal town that has a “hot” real estate market these days with homes selling quickly. I must admit, there’s that temptation to sell our house and make a pretty nice...

Local Dollars

Local Dollars

2020 was a “buy nothing” year, conveniently occurring in a year where we really couldn’t go out much anyway. While I’m certain we didn’t 100% follow the rules (I went on a sewing binge and definitely bought some fabric)... it was an enlightening year to stave off the...

Changes

How many times have I said “what a year?!” lately? One year ago, I was baking in the back kitchen of a coffee shop, trying to make some online orders even though all of my wholesale orders and upcoming events had been cancelled. It didn’t take long to realize this...

Our Anniversary Celebrations

My husband and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary this weekend and while we like to keep our celebrations simple, especially this year, we have a few traditions... Like cake! We had eight cakes at our wedding. I can’t completely remember why - for one thing...

OH HI at Home!

When the pandemic hit, and really even before that, I had been analyzing and thinking hard about the world of retail. I have run retail businesses before. It's a big challenge and a huge time commitment! And considering the times we are in now, it can also be...

Shop Local: Grays Harbor

We are working away on a gift guide, but I'd love to share a list of local businesses in my community for those who live nearby and are looking for ways to support small businesses this season. I can't say for certain if any of these businesses with retail spaces are...

5 Family Friendly Comfort Meals for Fall

5 Family Friendly Comfort Meals for Fall

Kabocha Squash Shrimp This is one of my favorite comfort meals which I only recently discovered. Since my mother-in-law is from the Philippines, my husband was raised on filipino cooking and I've also become accustomed to eating many dishes I was only made of aware of...
