  • Our Anniversary Celebrations

    britta December 16, 2020

    My husband and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary this weekend and while we like to keep our celebrations simple, especially this year, we have a few traditions… Like cake! We had eight cakes at our wedding. I can’t completely remember why – for one thing I was trying not to spend a ton of money and I learned about a tradition in some places where prominent women are…

  • OH HI at Home!

    britta December 9, 2020

    When the pandemic hit, and really even before that, I had been analyzing and thinking hard about the world of retail. I have run retail businesses before. It’s a big challenge and a huge time commitment! And considering the times we are in now, it can also be hazardous to the health of those working in shops as well as the shoppers themselves. I admit, I love browsing around gift…

  • Shop Local: Grays Harbor

    britta November 16, 2020

    We are working away on a gift guide, but I’d love to share a list of local businesses in my community for those who live nearby and are looking for ways to support small businesses this season. I can’t say for certain if any of these businesses with retail spaces are open to visit, but they would be worth contacting or following to find out! Creative Ginger Creative reuse products…

  • 5 Family Friendly Comfort Meals for Fall

    britta November 9, 2020

    Kabocha Squash Shrimp This is one of my favorite comfort meals which I only recently discovered. Since my mother-in-law is from the Philippines, my husband was raised on filipino cooking and I’ve also become accustomed to eating many dishes I was only made of aware of in the last decade! This recipe is particularly great this time of year because we really have so many squashes laying around our house…

  • Our DIY Organic Mattress! Where we bought it and how we put it together.

    britta October 15, 2020

    We have A NEW BED! I’m so excited about it since it feels like something we’ve been talking about for more than a year. Our queen size mattress was causing us all kinds of back aches and I was pretty disappointed by the life span of it, considering the expense of it and the name brand. It just didn’t hold up and I was very hesitant to just go out…

  • Apple Sauce

    britta October 5, 2020

    I have to admit, my love for “homesteading” is a fairly new one. As a marketer and designer by trade for many years, home made things seemed to look a little – blah – and less than appetizing. But, I’ve made a solution… because my theory is that so much of joy in life really comes from the details. So, hey, why not make my homemade goods look a little…

  • Our House

    britta October 5, 2020

    Did you ever watch HGTV House Hunters and just yell at the TV because someone didn’t want to buy a house because of the paint color on the walls? Well, it seems absurd but then you actually go out looking for a house and you’re like – wow this is hideous. And there are a lot of walls. Well, thankfully that’s how most people really do think! Because we ended…

  • 2020 Vision: How I Made Changes to Make it Through!

    britta October 1, 2020

    This year has obviously provided so many challenges and loss for so many people. It’s likely that none of us have been untouched by some major altered reality… which really made me think about the idea of “2020 Vision” and how that may really be an accurate metaphor for the year. For myself, it has truly been an eye opening year. Many things have become clear and, after the fog…

  • Apple Cider at Home

    britta September 24, 2020

    I’ve had a love affair with the apple tree in my yard since we moved! On my dream list when searching for a home was a fruit tree, so imagine my excitement when I found our current home with a raggedy old apple tree! Ha. This year was our second harvest, and I spent a lot of time researching apple tree care earlier in the year. We put in some…
