Weekly Loves – December 5th

Dec 5 Loves


It’s been a hectic first week of December. What with the craziness of Thanksgiving and the shopping madness that followed (which I avoid like the plague), I’m still trying to catch my breath. We got cocky and took a mini-vacation to a nearby tourist hotspot with the baby and completely messed up Baby Blue’s sleep schedule. So while we enjoyed playing in the snow, now we’re fighting that uphill battle back to (hopeful) normalcy. Poor kid. I think the inevitable conclusion is that we will never leave our house again.

Anyway, here are a few of my favorite things that the internet has seen fit to throw in my path (clockwise from top left).

1. Domaine Home’s post on How to Create the Coziest Home Ever, On a Budget. It’s cold. I’m cold. My house is cold. My feet are cold. Looking at pictures of warmth makes me feel less cold. Plus, just look at those doors!

2. Live Simply by Annie’s blog On Restlessness and Rest. Annie’s writing is a breath of fresh air in the craziness of the season. In fact her writing is refreshing whatever the occasion. And that quote by Thoreau is so on point.

3. Blogging Bettie’s podcast and blog is a real gem. Such a good resource for bloggers, plus I can listen to the podcast while I do mountains of dishes / babywrangle / scrape sticky cheerio monstrosities off the floor.

4. Vancouver photographer Sophia Hsin’s Instagram gifted me with this beauty the other day. It’s kind of hard to read so I’ll tell you it says “Let your faith be bigger than your fear”. Love.
