Well I can’t quite believe this is the end of week four of my whole foods cleanse. I have to admit I had doubts I could stick with it, but I’m proof that it’s totally doable and I think we’ve established a great routine. Although I did break down and get some dark chocolate, and it was so worth it. ; ) This week we cooked dill salmon with spinach (I have never liked fish so that was big), an egg/potato Mexican hash for breakfast, grilled turkey burgers (still had a hard time with the ground turkey…), and lots of loaded salads with dark leafy greens, beans, avocado, and homemade balsamic. And we’re always experimenting with smoothies – yesterday Hubs made a great carrot, orange, raspberry one that was delicious! If you follow my Instagram, sorry for the constant food overload… it’s been fun to share ideas! ;) We also watched the enlightening documentary Forks Over Knives, which I would highly recommend!
With all of this time in the kitchen, I want to simplify and only keep high quality tools that we love and use frequently. Time to get rid of those old plastic spatulas from Nick’s bachelor days… I’d love to use more teak wooden tools! They’re sustainable, economical, and remind me of brilliant Scandinavian influence. Merchant4 has an awesome selection.

This is the time of year when things really start to get busy. I’ve been making list after list and I’m really looking forward to some time away. We’re headed to my in-laws and I’ll be laying low until Monday. I get to see this little guy and venture off to the quiet countryside. I’m so excited. I’ll also be going to Art vs. Craft, a handmade market in Milwaukee that I’ve had on my calendar for months. I can’t wait to meet other artists, do some holiday shopping, and take pictures. Let me know if you’ll be there!
I find myself thankful for so many things but I especially want to say that I’m thankful for each of you, my readers! I couldn’t be more thrilled with how my little corner of the Internet is shaping up. I appreciate each and every single one of you and the friendships I’ve made. Thanks for joining along this journey and encouraging me in my creative pursuits.
Have a lovely Thanksgiving holiday! Until next week…

I’m inspired. It’s black and white with splashes of the best shade of tangerine/coral I’ve ever seen!
Moving to Denmark, catch you later! ; )

I stumbled across these two images and I just love the color combination. The boutonniere is by pomp & plumage.

I just love the concept of open shelving in a kitchen. You can see everything, and you’re forced to only keep the essentials. I think my fiance (the cook) would love it too. I thought the bottom photo was an especially clever way to store mugs in square shelves where everything has its place. Organization freaks unite!

I have a confession to make. I’ve registered for way too many dishtowels. For whatever reason, I find myself enamored by more and more. I just keep finding ones that are different and unique.
Pennants, buntings, whatever you choose to call them, these are wonderfully festive. What do you think?
