Comfy Cozy

It definitely feels like fall here in Minnesota lately.

The air is crisp, the leaves are turning, and I’m breaking out the boots.

I’ve always loved this season, but since moving into this house I’ve appreciated it even more. We only share our street with two other houses, so the view from our windows is largely unchanged from the days when this area was just  an undeveloped forest.

The first year we were here I was surprised to see so many people pull up next to our house and line up for fall family portraits, but I’ve since grown accustomed to it.

We’ll be in the backyard soon taking our own family pictures for holiday cards – do you get them done every year?

I’m once again linking up with Lindsey from the Pleated Poppy. Stop in and check out all the fun.

It’s perfect for Easter brunch, or Christmas morning (or pretty much any day that you’re craving a delicious breakfast). Over the years, we’ve adapted and tweaked an… [Continue Reading]

  • I wish I could say I was different than the norm, but I’m not. While I realize most people try to fit in, I’ve spend a considerable amount of time trying to stand out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not crazy. I don’t push the envelope too drastically. I mean I still buy random clothes from Target so… [Continue Reading]

    I’m Not Any Different
  • Every winter, I schedule a chemical peel at Dr. Prischmann’s office. I’ve mentioned before that I have melasma, and this helps to lighten some of the discoloration from that. Plus, I love having fresh and new skin once a year for so many reasons. Typically, I schedule my appointments for the winter months, because the… [Continue Reading]
