Cutting Board // Project

We are CONSTANTLY doing projects and creating things for our home so I thought it was time to share one of those projects!  It's taken me this long because I wanted any home tutorial I shared here not only to be tried, tested, and true but also beautiful, functional, really well thought out and quality made.  I've had this project in mind for quite sometime.  It's pretty simple, and checks all the required boxes.  We ended up with a cutting/serving/charcuterie board that I will proudly use and display in our kitchen.  This would also make for a really beautiful gift if you don't have a need for another cutting board (although I'm honestly not sure who doesn't need another serving board).

Routine

Routine

The other day I caught myself wishing time away.  Because transition into anything can be uncomfortable and uncertain.  Even though transitioning into a new year feels in a lot of ways like forward motion in others it can feel like moving forward only to settle back into routine.  For me it's equally exciting and difficult.   I think routine is super important but I crave change to happen quickly and am not great at being patient.  There's an energy of inspiration, newness and change in the air this time of year and yet living in such a cold climate almost forces waiting. So, this week has been a lot of uncomfortable transition, and settling into routine.

Deck The Halls // Juniper Garland x Rhosyn

Deck The Halls // Juniper Garland x Rhosyn

Rhosyn is a small business here in Calgary that creates stunning floral arrangements as well as curated, hand-made gift boxes.  I met Erica (the owner) when she created the flowers for my launch party (you can see that post here) and as soon as I met her I instantly liked her.  She's beautiful, kind, and super talented.  When I had the idea of running simple gorgeous green garland down our railing during for Christmas I asked her if she would like to create with me.  Amidst her running a small business and being a mom to three beautiful kids I was so excited that we were able to collaborate on this project.

Foraged Holiday Wreath

Foraged Holiday Wreath

It's December!  More than Christmas I love the energy and feeling in the air throughout this whole month.  It's pure magic.  The snow and cold, having a calendar filled with weekend plans for holiday drinks and dinners with people you love,  the sparkly lights, the smells of pine and cinnamon, saying "Happy Christmas" to strangers. It's all perfection.

Cozy Home

Cozy Home

I know I'm not the only one who feels like hibernating when the snow starts to fall.  There's something so romantic about spending snowy nights cozied up with good food, wine, and candles at home.  It's snowed a few times in Calgary, although up until this point it hasn't stuck. As the snow and Christmas near I've been spending time adding elements to our home that make it feel ready for those cozy snowy nights.  Here are a few ways I've made our house hibernation friendly for the impending winter months.

Home Tour // Backyard Dining

Home Tour // Backyard Dining

Autumn, Thanksgiving, and harvest seem to happen so suddenly once summer fades away and the leaves begin to fall.  I love that we are able to celebrate all these things at once during this gorgeous season.  Our patio sees a lot of entertaining and connection with friends during the summer months, and since we love our outdoor space so much we have been taking every opportunity to make it last 'just once more' before winter falls.   With a few tweaks to cozy up our yard we are still able to enjoy dinner outside under the light of our string lights, fire pit, and candles.  We worked with Guildhall Home to make our al fresco harvest dinner a little cozier and allow our conversation to last late into the evening outdoors.  Here are a few tips to extend your outdoor dining season, set up a gorgeous harvest dinner table, and get a peek into our backyard.

The time has come for us to begin harvesting veggies from our garden.  We had a really good season despite it being an unpredictable one.  Aside from a little wind damage everything has survived and thrived up until this point.  As we begin the process of using things up I thought I would share some of our go-to recipes that have been on repeat in our kitchen. First up tomatoes..
