Italy Style Inspiration

We are leaving for Italy in two weeks! I plan on packing mostly dresses because they are easy to wear, pack, and perfect for strolling around and eating double gelatos and pasta in style. I love white in the summer and classic navy stripes with pops of red. I also want to bring a head scarf so I don’t have…

Would you Wallpaper?

Lately I have been digging wallpaper. Not the tacky  80’s flowers but  more Downton Abbey in style. The right wallpaper can look so elegant. (Image from HomeAdore) I don’t think I could commit to a full room but I think I would like to do an accent wall.  These are the looks I am liking. I especially love removable wallpaper…

This Weekend-Yard Makeover

Hi, Happy Friday! Shannon here. This weekend we are beautify-ing our yard. All summer we plan on hanging out outside for morning coffee on the porch and evening get togethers in the backyard. I want the space to feel inviting, cozy and easy. I am thinking white lights, adorondak chairs and some blue and white linen somewhere. I want to…

An Evening with Elizabeth Gilbert

Her demeanor was calm, genuine, and exuded friendliness. It has been a long time since I met a stranger (even though I have read every single one of her books)…

Neighborhood Food Love

Shelby here, with another fave from our neighborhood – Black Eye Coffee in LoHi. You all know about my favorite bakery in the neighborhood, but I go to Black Eye Coffee when I need something specific:  avocado toast.  I have tried to recreate it at home, but to no avail.  They also have amazing lattes made with housemade cashew milk! I also…

(Long) Weekend Getaway: Oahu

Hi friends, Shelby here.  I am sharing photos from our recent trip to Hawaii.  One of my close friends from law school grew up there and we were thrilled when she decided to have her wedding there.  Because Zach is teaching and is in the middle of the soccer season, we had to make it a quick trip. We arrived…

Messy French Girl Hair

I love this new trend of messy french-girl hair. Well, not new in France. I take approximately 57 seconds daily to do my hair so the low maintenance, unwashed look, would really suit me. I never wear my hair straight but if I could leave it messy, I might. When I visited Paris for the first time I was 15.…

Happy Fri-yay!

This weekend Shelby is at a wedding in Hawaii, and I will be celebrating at a bachelorette party in Denver. My school, a refugee magnate school, is having international night where everyone celebrates the many countries represented with food, music, and booths for each country. Several of my students are performing and I am excited to see their performances and…
