A Tip for Family Gift Giving & 15 Gift Ideas Under $50

We have a large extended family on my side, so several years ago, we adopted the tradition of drawing names and buying for one person each for Christmas, rather than buying gifts for every person in the family (though, my two daughters are the only little ones in the family and, in the past, have…continue reading

Restoring Order to a Tiny Pantry

I'm a wannabe neatnik. I grew up in an undeniably chaotic house and, since I was little, I've always loved sorting and organizing.

Fried Chickpeas with Yogurt (Vegetarian, Gluten-Free)

I first learned of this recipe through Jenny Rosenstrach's website, Dinner: A Love Story.

Fall/Winter Ten-Item Wardrobe 2016

I felt like I would need to spruce it up quite a bit if I was going to share…continue reading

Pre-Fall Ten-Item Wardrobe Analysis

September is one of my very favorite months in the mountains. I love taking walks on sunny days with cool breezes, savoring every last drop of the last Palisade peaches, and commencing fall nesting, beginning with a thorough closet sort-out! As an aside, before I comment on my own closet, I was sorting through my daughters' summer…continue reading

Scandinavian Oil-Finished Floors

It's been a little over five weeks since we sanded our floors and we only just got a second coat of finish on last week. Now the floor in our living room is completely finished, with a Scandinavian white-oil finish, by WOCA Denmark, and we…continue reading
