Meet the newest addition to our family — a flock of baby Isa Brown chickens. Kiel and I have wanted to raise chickens for a while and now seemed like the perfect time to finally do it. Some of my fondest early childhood memories were spent at my grandmother’s house helping her feed her pet chickens and rabbits. We are excited to provide these memories for Harry.
A genuine feeling of surprise is a hard sensation to come by as an adult. I’m not sure what I was expecting when Kiel asked me to get dressed up and meet him outside the house by the garage. He took my hand and led me up the creaky staircase to our attic, and as we rounded the last step shielding me from its view I felt that gleeful warmth you get from an unsuspecting sight. He did it. I was truly surprised at the beautiful scene and meal he created.
Last year Kiel and I remodeled one of the bathrooms at our lake house and I’m sharing the results here today. It was a project we had a lot of fun with creatively. I’ve been wanting a swan faucet since forever and it happened to fit in perfectly with this space after we had the patterned tiles installed. The bathroom originally had two large sinks and the overall look was very 70’s — there was even a brown shag carpet on the floor.
Quarantine Day 27 — I truthfully cannot remember what day it is or how long it’s been since things have felt normal. I have a feeling even when things return to “normal'” they won’t exactly be the normal any of us remember. Kiel and I are keeping positive and passing the time by staying busy with work and hanging with Harry. Harry has no idea of what’s going on in the world and for him every day is a new adventure. So many of us are at home with little ones right now and I wanted to share a few activities that Harry is loving.
Since our St. Barth’s trip in January, Harry has been obsessed with going to the beach and seeing boats. He asks to go for a ride and see them on a daily basis. As none are really in the water this time of year we took a drive to an empty boatyard a few weeks ago.
