I took a hiatus there. Big changes in my heart, working on getting sweet baby to nap in our bed (nursing to sleep is basically the best tool out there, seriously!), and finding our springtime groove.
After boudoir photos (read about them in the post below) everything in me changed. And I am taking that feeling and running with it. Being free of that beast and just living feels.so.good.
Three things I am super into right now; Braids, Juicing, Crafting ALL THE THINGS. I have some kind of spring time nesting bug and it’s seriously benefiting my home.
Have you seen all the roman blind DIY tutorials poking around on pintrest? We did some blinds about a year ago with some cute cheapy fabric but I wasn’t really loving it. I just put them up quick for Ever’s birth so I didn’t have to labor (hey homebirth!) in a fishbowl. So this re-covering job was a long time coming. I bought the fabric in February but had been putting off the project. Yesterday I finally went at it and the whole thing took maybe 30min and totally changed the look of our dining room. I’m in love!
I also have had this beautiful wood headboard, that Charlie made me, that has been begging to be crafted for quite some time (uh, like, a year+) so I finally got to town with that one and LOVE the result.
And some braids, because, yeah. Into it. My hair has gotten CRAZY long and I have been needing to shake it up a bit but I don’t have any crazy hair skills. So braids are a perfect go-to for me.
And, finally, do you juice? I inherited this awesome tank of a juicer from my Grandma. And I am in love with it. We have been juicing for a couple weeks now and I can feel a big difference in my energy level. I just do it in the morning (and sometimes some apple/carrot at night for dessert!) and it is incredible. I feel more energetic, and FULL for so long. Here are some pretty juice pictures.
And, two of my favorite juice concoctions.
Pink Detox (and, fair warning, beets and detox for real; whoa)
One large beet
One hunk of ginger (caution! spicy!)
One small apple
One big bunch of kale or three handfuls of spinach
One green apple
Three big carrots
One half lemon
Two handfuls Spinach
