A Farmer’s Market Themed 1st Birthday for Ev Drew

A Farmer’s Market Themed 1st Birthday for Ev Drew

One of our family’s most favorite weekend traditions is visiting the local farmer’s market every Saturday possible from May through to October. We have an impressive farmer’s market in the area of town we love most, situated close to our favorite coffee shops, charming restaurants, and established neighborhoods. More than often, we prep our meal […]

Our Backyard Patio Refresh

Our Backyard Patio Refresh

Last year I shared a tour of our yard. While our outdoor space has been pretty complete since then, we have made a few recent updates, namely the addition of a 12 by 12 foot cement patio off our covered wood deck. If you look at the photos from last year’s post you’ll see that […]

Organizing Our Kids’ Keepsakes

Organizing Our Kids’ Keepsakes

Over the last year or so I’ve been on quite the purging adventure, ridding our home of things we don’t need or love. It’s been a really slow yet consistent process and I’d say we’re about 80% ‘there’ with ‘there’ being a place where nothing requires massive attention or causes unnecessary stress and upkeep in […]

How to Infuse Those Vacation Feelings into Everyday Life

How to Infuse Those Vacation Feelings into Everyday Life

We recently came home from our annual vacation in Seaside, Florida, which over the last few years is a place we’ve come to determine as ‘ours.’ I owe a lot of credit to my friend Lesley because without her I probably would have never made it to Seaside in 2016 when I was invited to […]

Our Boys’ Easter Baskets

Our Boys’ Easter Baskets

I’m a big fan of Easter. In recent years the occasion has taken on more of a faith-based significance in my life, while the novelty side of the holiday has been emphasized since adding children to our family. I talked about this a bit here but we’re pro Easter bunny in the Bosse home and […]

Things I Do

Things I Do

Last week I wrote a (fun) post about the things I don’t do. It seemed to be a hit with some of you and rightfully so! I’ve loved reading similar lists from friends and bloggers because it’s interesting to learn more about the things others prioritize, and the things they do not. Imagine how life […]

Things I Don’t Do

Things I Don’t Do

Inspired by both my life coach Diana and my treasured friend Emily, I wanted to share a list of the things I don’t do. How many times we marvel over the things others seem to effortlessly pack into their lives only to lose sight of the many things they probably don’t to make room for […]

A Digger Themed 3rd Birthday for Lachlan Rue

A Digger Themed 3rd Birthday for Lachlan Rue

Well! We officially have a three year old! Lachlan’s birthday party was this past weekend which worked out nicely since his official birthday landed on a Friday this year. Despite some mild sicknesses lingering in our home for the last eight weeks, I prepared as much as I could in advance of the event, a […]

The Bosse’s Christmas Day Mac and Cheese Tradition

The Bosse’s Christmas Day Mac and Cheese Tradition

My favorite holiday tradition is one that feels far from festive but without it Christmas wouldn’t feel the same! And because every tradition deserves a backstory . . . During the week of Christmas in 2006, most of the route from Lansing, Michigan to Toronto, Ontario was hit with an awful snowstorm. The kind of […]

Celebrating Christmas In A Transitional Season

Celebrating Christmas In A Transitional Season

I asked my husband what would be an appropriate title for this post. “I need a word to go after, ‘Celebrating Christmas In A . . .  Season,’ what’s a politically correct fill in the blank?” “Uh, in a struggle bus season?” was his response. Without even missing a beat. I married up, you guys. […]

Eight Weeks With Everett Drew

Eight Weeks With Everett Drew

Remember this post? Talk about long days and short years. Here we are living that truth out all over again. When I was pregnant with Everett, I imagined his newborn days would be as easy as the ones I had with Lachlan. Lachlan’s newborn days weren’t anything tremendously difficult or far from textbook ordinary but […]

How to Tidy Your Home When You’re Busy

How to Tidy Your Home When You’re Busy

If you know me well, you know I love a tidy home. And I’ve differentiated between tidy and clean in this post here, so you’ll also know that while there may be dog hair along my baseboards or a few toilets that need scrubbing, nearly everything has a place in our house. I believe more […]
