julian and plum came home today. since they were not here during christmas, we had a little celebration for them when they arrived this afternoon to see what christmas gifts santa had brought them while they were away.

afterwards we went on a family walk so they could take their new scooters for a test drive and landed at the park before heading home for dinner.





i am so happy to have these two home. it's back to school tomorrow. we will be busy, busy, busy in these upcoming weeks. we decided on a house in nashville and are just waiting to hear back on our application. if all goes as planned we will be in our new home in just a little over a month. eek!

footnote: for those inquiring, the scooters are maxi kicks, birdie's is a mini kick. her helmet is a little nutty, nutcase helmet. sailor's stroller is a stokke.

    You guys are so lucky to have nice quiet wide streets to scoot on!

    Oh my.. I really felt in love with your blog. Honestly, I had this strange happy feeling when I went through your beautiful pictures here. Your whole family is so beautiful and I got this feeling that you really love each others. <3
    Funny how I actually find your blog, maybe through some other blog or something.. I don’t even remember but I’m a follower now. I got so big inspiration from your pictures, all the colours and all those great vintage things.
    Greetings from Finland!

    Lovely photos, as always. I would love to know where you found that speckled cowhide rug by your stairs. I’ve been searching for one just like that but I’ve had zero luck. Hope you can help me out!

    My 11yr old daughter is a HUGE fan of Adventure Time and as I was showing her Julians cool figurines…she immediately noticed he was wearing a hat like Finn. Wondering where you found it? Although….that said, we are up in Canada, and often don’t have access to all the cool things you folks south of the border do.

  • Nicole

    I think it’s great that your kids all wear helmets while riding their scooters. I see SO many kids without them, and I just hope that they don’t fall and hurt themselves.

  • kelly
