DIY

b&a
I wanted to update these shoes that were collecting dust in the back of my closet so I painted the wooden heel and rim of the sole. I love the color blocking trend that's so big right now and this didn't cost me a dime!

we made it

Anniversary
...I was a nervous wreck. I could barely sleep the night before and woke up way too early. It wasn't a scared nervous, it was the excited kind!
Yep, today is our Anniversary.
I'll spare you the mushy love stuff, for now anyways. Jeremiah has been scheming and plotting for today and I'm just along for the ride. I'm sure he's got something fun planned, but he should know I'm easy to please. We have a sitter named Grandma for the day so it already feels like a mini vacation for me!

And to many more days like this in our future.

Some of last week. We've been grilling a lot, making lemonade out of limes (because I am Guatemalan!) playing in cardboard houses, eating s'mores candy bars, working on jewelry, and taking pictures of the house at night.

a little neon


I've got to find a place to put something neon in the house, don't you think?

I could really live here, like kick out the current residents, cute little blonde girls and all. Isn't it perfect?
Found here.

For those of you who want to source the Moln (cloud) fabric by Gunila Axen, you can find the collection here.

in & out


I couldn't choose whether to be in this home or out in their garden, both are equally beautiful.
Found here.

happy father's day


We didn't go out for Father's Day, this was actually the day before but it's a cute (camera phone) picture of Jeremiah & Israel. We had pickled vegetables with tomato, mozzarella & pesto sandwiches. Israel had a banana Nutella sandwich, basically a form of dessert and we made a mess.
Have I ever mentioned what an amazing dad Jeremiah is? Well he is. A lot of moms say that about their husbands but this time it's for real. He's incredibly involved in Israel's life and well being. He does it all. Bathing, feeding, diaper changing, book reading, dressing, taking walks, dancing, singing, laughing, playing. Jeremiah has never shyed away from doing anything and everything Israel needs. He's never just handed Israel to me when it was too much to bear, his patience is astonishing and he truly enjoys being a dad. He involves our son in even the most boring household tasks but seems to find a way to make them fun and exciting. Israel just adores his dad for that. It's so great to see that Israel will go to either of us equally because he trusts and knows us the same. Though I'm with Israel the majority of the time, I can say that Israel is just as close to his father as he is to me.
We are so blessed to have a man in our lives who is very devoted and caring for us.
See what I mean, I wasn't joking about him being an amazing dad, he actually is.

Last week was busy. Running trips to the park, the market, to eat, gardening and organizing, eating and getting ready to make some new fiber jewelry! Don't worry I won't be unloading on you like that again for a long time.
