Hello, guys! Hope you are well!

Remember all that snow we got last week? Well, it’s almost all melted!

We’ve had such warm temperatures, but, honestly, the bright blue sky and sunshine have been glorious. My hubby is even talking about getting the patio cushions out of the garage today so we can sit outside!

Life Lately

We’ve been so busy. Truly. Hubby and I both run our own businesses out of our little townhouse and it seems like we’re both burning the match at both ends lately!

But, we’re so, so grateful that we get to live this life that we’ve carefully carved out. However, it’s not to say that doing what we’re doing is easy. It’s so hard. 

So, to help with some of the stress that comes with running two companies, fly fishing is our saving grace. We will be taking a day trip to one of our favorite fishing spots in Southern Minnesota this weekend!

Miss Molly is now drinking water out of a sippy cup and it’s just the cutest thing. She’s SO proud of herself!

I can’t believe how fast time is flying with her…she will be one at the end of May already!

And, last Saturday, hubby and I were able to go out for lunch at our favorite cafe in town and did some thrifting afterwards! I found some super neat things, which will you will see on the blog in March!

Then, in a few weeks, I’ll share some of my favorite faux stems for Spring as well as a really fun Easter DIY.
