Happy Friday 9/7/18
Happy Friday! We were back in Seattle this week figuring out what to do with a house full of furniture and decor. I am a little amazed at how much house stuff we have accumulated between Ravenna selling, Bryant turning back into more of a traditional rental (I owe you an update on that!), and my parents emptying out their barn. And this all came after we made a big push to purge stuff from our lives this year. So we're planning a 'moving sale' (or maybe 'estate sale' or 'giant yard sale' is more appropriate?) at the Ravenna House in Seattle next weekend, assuming we can get all of our ducks in a row that quickly. I'll post all the details on Instagram as soon as we get them worked out.
The Ravenna House // master bedroom and kitchen
We took a ton of photos at Ravenna this week, and these are a few outtakes that our kids snuck into ;)
Speaking of kids, our oldest starts Kindergarten next week. I can't quite believe it and yet I totally can. Either way it feels that we're starting in on a new phase of life around here. We've moved out of the baby-phase (especially now that Daphne turned one and quit nursing) and into the school-phase. From here on out it's all paper and pencils and drop offs and lunches (in this lunch box - we looked for months for a good dinosaur lunch box!). I ordered these reusable bags and these paper bags to cut down on plastic waste too. Here. We. Go!
I obsess over every article that Kate Wagner writes and this one was no different: To Renovate or Not to Renovate (McMansion Hell).
This kitchen feels all right for the coming cold months (Instagram). I'm pretty sure I couldn't live in such a dark kitchen, but I love it anyway.
Joyfully decluter these things to boost happiness (becoming minimalist). I'm on board.
Compost: Let's Break It Down (Literally) (Trash is for Tossers). We're really lucky to live on 3 acres and have plenty of space to throw our compost in a corner of the garden (after we pull out the good scraps for the chickens). Next year, I'm hoping to build a proper compost box.
Have a great weekend!
