Blankets & Books

The weather has been switching off from freezing and rainy to sunshine and warmth. We can’t really keep tabs on it, so we’ve been running out to our front yards for some rays to only quickly scoop everything back up to go back inside while it downpours. It’s thrilling! We shared the steps to making this hand painted quilt below this post here, but took it out for a spin for some beauty shots before, you guessed it, we got rained out!

We love the Joules boots for kids (see our fishing adventure from last Summer!), so we were extra excited to try out the adult’s line of boots and their super great pieces for women too! Here are some of our favorites:

    That is how it is in Kansas City! Last week I could barely stand the heat, now today I had to turn the heater on for a few minutes to warm up! It’s crazy 🙂

    Oh I am inspired! 😉 Even though I live in Hawaii, I am embarrassed to admit that I don’t often think of taking books outside to read with my little guy. I need to do a lot more of that!
    And love the quilt DIY. It is super cute!
