I had the BEST weekend, filled with wonderful, much-needed time with girlfriends. It started on Friday when Steph and I packed up our girls [which was an event in and of itself] and headed to downtown Rockford, Illinois for the City Market.


[Haha--don't they look so thrilled?] I was SO excited to finally get to the City Market. I’m the first to admit that I’m not always the hugest fan of Rockford, but I am a huge believer in investing in your local community. Eat local, shop local, and when your community does something cool, give it your best shot to be there. That said, this is the first time I went. I LOVED it! It was a beautiful night, and Eva and Emara were such troopers. Basically, it’s a little like a farmer’s market, but in the evening and with less produce and more randomness. Our first stop was putting in our order for Woodfire Brick Oven Pizza. Delicious.

Anything that you can eat with your hands while sitting outside and people watching is good news with me. Yes, please. We talked and browsed and enjoyed watching the girls experience the world from their strollers.
To top off the night, we brought home a chocolate strawberry baby bunt cake for dessert. Seriously?! Who know buttercream made with almond milk could be so delicious? The Just Bundts people. That’s who.

The evening was just what I needed after a long week. Perfection. Hope you had a wonderful weekend! xo, l

    Alex - Lindsey, I stumbled upon your blog randomly (through Pinterest) and was so surprised and excited to see that you went to Rockford City Market. I will be working on July 27th at the Hailey’s Winery booth. Come by and I’ll give ya a wine sample! :)ReplyCancel

I illustrated this ad for Poska last month and spent some time today turning it into a postcard. I love doing work for Louise. She always has the best inspiration and her shop is always beautifully curated. This particular project was super heavily influenced by In and Out of the Garden.


If you’re in the Rockford area, stop in at Poska and get yourself a topiary… and lots of other fun things you didn’t know you needed. (The basil one is the BEST. YUM!) xo, l

Hello! I have so many fun things to share, but for now I just have these small bits of randomness.
– We are back from Kentucky! We went last year and loved it, and this year was just as fun. (WAY different with a 7ish month old!). Will post about a few highlights soon.
– I lost my iPhone somewhere between mile marker 116 and Kentucky. In case you’re not one for doing math, that means I’ve been cell-phone-less for one week and 3 days. (!!!!!) If you have seen an iPhone in a red polka dot case laying lonely in a gas station parking lot somewhere in the Bible belt, it’s mine. Please send it back to me. At least the photos…
– We all have colds. D, E, and I. Having a cold when you’re on your own is one thing, having a cold when your baby has a cold is quite another.
– Eva is hilarious these days. I call her Stitch. Like that crazy animal from Lilo & Stitch. What a goofball!
– We have a van now. We are officially a van family. D won’t let me drive it. Ironic.
– Things are looking better around here, yes?! I’m finally finishing up my little website mini makeover. As these things go, nothing is ever “finished,” but I feel quite at home here and I hope you do, too.
– I officially miss blogging. I hope to be doing more of it. And sleeping. I’d like to blog and sleep more… and read more… and run more… and…
– Tonight I got to cheer on Emily with my family, while playing with a crazy, snotty, wonderful baby and eating these things (Thanks, Ran & Ty):

I hope your week is off to an excellent start! I’m knee deep in invitation calligraphy, emails, and snotty kleenex, but glad to be home and back at it. Enjoy your Tuesday! (And go get yourself some Gigi’s Cupcakes, too!) xo, l

Things might look a little funny around here for awhile. Sit tight. BIG changes coming soon and I can’t WAIT to share them with you. xo, l

Happy almost Easter! When Emily at Jones Design Company dreamed up the idea for this print, I was thrilled to get to be a part! The phrase “He Is Risen” brings back such really wonderful childhood memories for me, it was fun to take that familiar phrase and create it in a fresh, new way. The He Is Risen Collection includes a variety of elements–a printable art piece, notecards, and place cards for your Easter table. The collection comes complete with three colors–green, teal, and navy. Just click here to purchase and download the PDF, then start printing on your favorite paper (or email and share with a friend)! Below are some of the beautifully styled photographs Emily took, but you can see her full post here–complete with tablescape ideas to coordinate with each of the prints. Hope this print brings back happy Easter memories, and a springy new freshness to a certain spot in your home! xo, linds

p.s. My friend Corey was inspired by this time of year and wrote a song about it. His 10 year old daughter captured the song on his iPhone and I thought I’d share it with you. Click here to watch.
