Backyard Makeover: The Plan

March 8, 2019

Spring is right around the corner and that means we are officially kicking off our first big project on our new home: the backyard. It is a complete blank slate. Literally, there is one plant (a gorgeous  peony bush!!) and the rest is all grass with a concrete patio area. Continue Reading…

Picking a Pine Tree

December 5, 2018

Last weekend we headed out to a local Christmas Tree farm and chopped down our tree! We have always got a real tree and living in the PNW it almost seems silly not to. After wandering through the field of trees for about half hour we found the perfect tree for us 🙂 Continue Reading…

Halloween 2018!

November 1, 2018

I’ve never really been that into Halloween, but since having Luna it’s definitely been fun to partake in all the activities again. I will say, we really half-assed our costumes this year….whoops. But at least Luna looked adorable! I found her ‘winter unicorn’ Continue Reading…

18 Months with Luna Knight

September 17, 2018

Inspiration for our New Backyard

August 2, 2018

We have officially been in our new home for 2.5 weeks so it is time to get going on our first project: the backyard! One of things that we weren’t in love with at our new house was the backyard. It is completely bare, just (dead) grass and ONE bush. But thankfully its a peony bush, so it’s fine. Continue Reading…
