Meet Jessica...

Meet Jessica, my son and a camel (so random, huh?)
 
 
Jessica is the owner of Harbor Beacon (you can find her Etsy shop here and her Facebook Page here) and she happens to be my talented sister in law!
 
She has lived on the Oregon Coast, Martha's Vineyard and now Alaska...so I'm thinking at this point she has salt water permanently in her veins. It seems a natural fit that she would repurpose sails!
 
She has agreed to give away this adorable clutch...
 
 
 
...to one of our lucky fans! All you have to do is go to my facebook page and click the Giveaway icon! Follow the steps to earn multiple entries and we will announce the lucky person on the 17th! Easy Peasy!

Summertime and the livin is busy

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

Wow! How does this happen? Summer starts and you feel like you have all the time in the world...then you blink and you have 4 weeks til school starts and a list of "things to do this summer" on Pinterest that has barely been touched! I feel like we are on a mad dash to do it all! I guess it didn't help that most of July was spent waiting for our roof to be done, so we hung out at home a lot more. The countdown chain I made didn't even help my procrastination!!

I'm fairly certain summer break has been downsized or something! Twenty years ago it felt like forever between school getting out and back to school shopping. I spent my days babysitting my little brother and the days dragged on! Now, I blink and 3 months are gone! Not cool, man!

I have a to-do list of things I want to do on the site too, and haven't done yet! Mostly introducing some talented friends (who are actually family) so I'm going to get on that in the next couple days! I'm also going to try to get back on the meal planning train...it has been pure chaos when 5pm rolls around and I don't think I can take it much longer! I love structure! 

So stay tuned for some fun stuff and hope your summer isn't too crazy (although I'm sure it probably is!)
