Island Time

ebb + flow :: island time

The Ericksons are on the move again! The Red Head and I have packed the truck (quite full for a three-day stay!) and are hitting the road for Door County, Wisconsin. My family has been visiting Washington Island in Door County for more than 30 years but it’s the Red Head’s first time. Wish him luck and hope for less snakes than last year! I’m signing off until I’m back on Saturday but enjoy the rest of your week and circle back on Sunday for a wrap up. See you then!

These Scenes

July 28, 2015

ebb + flow :: scenes

Spring cleaning has hit our house a bit late this year and I’m in the mood to purge the excess clutter that has magically found its way to our basement, drawers and closets. If anyone needs 20 pens that don’t write anymore, I’m your gal! The process has been pretty painless so far but I keep coming back to images like these when I need a dose of inspiration. Give me those clean floors, clean lines and simple accents.

ebb + flow :: mantra

As we gear up for another weekend of travel I’m reminding myself of this mantra. Bring on the vino and does packing Cards Against Humanity fall under the ‘helpful’ category? Asking for a friend…

Weekend Wrap Up 7.26

July 26, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

It has only been a few short days since my last wrap up, but let’s see what links I’ve got in the ol’ bookmarked folder. While you peruse these bad boys I’m off to celebrate the birthday of one cute niece and some cocktails with friends. Definitely two great things for fighting the Sunday blues. Enjoy!

ebb + flow :: weekend

Friday, Friday, Friday! We’ve arrived and I’m ready. Time for a glass of wine, some errands (I’ll do those before the drinking) and a night with my Red Head and giant dog. After that we’ve got a cooking day with some pals who are expecting, a birthday party for a special four-year old and a Sunday night dinner with friends. All and all, a great couple of days. Woop woop! Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you Sunday!


Engineer Prints

ebb + flow :: photojojo

Our bedroom is about 97% done and it’s about darn time! Tonight we’re tackling some paint touch up, hook installation and attempting to add the railing back (if we can find one missing piece…) but now that the dust has settled we’re noticing that we could use some large scale art on our walls. I’m hesitant to spend a bunch of dough so these PhotoJoJo $25 engineer prints just might be the ticket. I’ve been playing around with uploading Instagram photos and so far the resolution doesn’t seem to be an issue. The hardest part will be narrowing down the photos!

Vacay Wrap Up 7.22

July 22, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Vacation, my friends, was a great success! We ate too much, drank too much, slept when we wanted (which was until 12:30 p.m. on the first day… woops!), ventured to the beach, hung out by the pool, finished three books (one alone yesterday!), caught up with family and relaxed with friends. The only thing that keeps our post-vacation blues at bay is the fact that we get to do the same thing next week with my family too! Back-to-back travels and a lot to do in between so enjoy these links from around the web while we catch up on laundry, unpacking and puppy cuddles. The post-travel usual suspects.

Myrtle Beach Bound

July 17, 2015

ebb + flow :: myrtle beach bound

As you read this, the Red Head and I will be on a Myrtle Beach-bound plane, hopefully with a beverage in hand. After a busy few weeks of projects, home reno, feeling under the weather and very little sleep, some beach time with family and some new books sounds perfect. I’ll logging off until we’re back to the land of 10,000 lakes so carry on without me and don’t miss me too much!
