APRIL 2018

APRIL 2018 first appeared on EMILYALDER

As a person with green eyes I have spent most of my life with a strong aversion to the color. I would often see green clothing items or home goods and walk the other way.

 

As I have gotten older I have found it to be one of my favorite colors. I love the muted army green tones or the deep jeweled hues. I know that pantone might have made the color of the year purple but I’m all about green these days.

November 2017 Mood Board

It’s hard to believe how rapidly we are approaching the Holidays. Our plans for this season have changed a bit and we will be traveling for Thanksgiving. In years past my mother and I host together with a beautiful group of family and friends. This year will be a bit different but I look forward to being in Ohio and experiencing some real Fall weather. Along with some quality time with my husband’s side of the family.

Although I won’t be hosting this year, you can see some ideas from the previous year here. I am hoping to put together another inspiration to share with you.

This mood is inspired by slow mornings and the crisp of fall.

DISCOVERIES

It’s been quiet around here, I know. *slightly defeated shoulder shrug*

We got hit with a nasty cold a couple of weeks back. Did you experience it? It was spreading like wildfire and made everyone miserable. We recovered just before Spring Break, phew. Traveling long distances with the twins has been tough, as it often can be with young ones, and our littles definitely didn’t make it easy for us. BUT, I think we are over the hump. We went on our annual spring break road trip up the California coast to the Bay. This years trip was a huge success! We even left the stroller at home, which is huge for us. Matt and I were pinching ourselves at the ease of the entire trip considering how much we did. It was a total whirlwind. I plan to share all the details next week but if you want a sneak peek you can see some of our adventure here and here.
