1st Edition: Explore Boise

This morning, Chase had a meeting downtown and since it was my day off from work, Lucy and I tagged along for the ride. Or maybe I should say we tagged along for the walk because that is just what we did! We parked on one end of the city and just walked and walked and walked. It was crisp out but sunny and the blooms downtown this time of year are just phenomenal! First, we made our way to West Elm. I love getting inspiration from their store, as the aesthetic there is very in line with my  ...

Picnic in the Park

Springtime weather is the weirdest.  It can be 60s and sunny one day and snowing the next.  So when it is nice, you must take advantage!  Last Saturday was one of those good days that just had to be spent outside.  It was sunny and gorgeous!  A group of our friends with kiddos all met in the park for a BBQ- the adults had fun and the littles got lots of energy out so it was a win-win!  We went to Settler’s Park in Meridian, and it is a beautiful new park  ...

Festival Of Trees

One of my favorite Holiday traditions is after our big meal on Thanksgiving Day, we head downtown and look at all the decorated trees and wreaths at the Festival of Trees.  It was so fun to bring Lucy this year!  She couldn’t seem to take it all in fast enough- her little head was just swiveling so fast! Hah!  There were also some balloons around that she was mesmerized by- too cute!
