Chilly Night

December 12, 2017

ebb + flow :: cozy night

Welp, yesterday’s post was definitely foreshadowing. The Red Head and I are doing some electrical work tomorrow that could leave us without power for the night. Give me all the blankets, hot cocoa, warm fireplaces, and space heaters. That also means no Internet for a bit so I’ll catch you later this week when we’ve exited the Stone Age!

Light Me Up

December 11, 2017

ebb + flow :: fireplace

The Erickson abode has been sans fire this season and, quite frankly, I’m shocked we’ve waited this long. Perhaps we just really want to get our money out of the new furnace we put in this Fall? Either way, I have a feeling the streak might be broken this week. Someone find the matches!

Weekend Wrap Up 12.10

December 10, 2017

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

The gods of sleep aligned this morning and I somehow snoozed until after 9 a.m. This is a miracle. A miracle that hasn’t taken place in far too long. In theory, I should have tons of energy to conquer the day but, truthfully I’m still easing into it. While I pour another cup of hot cider, enjoy these links from around the web:

Gingerbread Weekend

December 8, 2017

ebb + flow :: trees

We’ve reached the time of year where I feel the need to post a tree photo as often as possible. It just feels right and I refuse to fight it. Do your weekend plans involve a Christmas tree? The only Christmas tree I’m worrying about this weekend is a gingerbread one. I’m building a gingerbread house with some cousins! I’ll likely eat more candy than help but it will be a blast nonetheless. Whatever you’re up to, have a great time, friends!

Now Playing

December 6, 2017

ebb + flow :: simply christmas

If you’ve talked to me recently I’ve probably bullied you into listening to this album but, admit it, you now love it just as much as I do. Give it a listen, people!

Winter Scenes

December 4, 2017

ebb + flow :: winter scenes

While note nearly this idyllic, the Red Head and I saw no less than 25 cars with trees strapped to the roof this weekend in our outs and abouts. As they say, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Weekend Wrap Up 12.3

December 3, 2017

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Welcome to December, friends! I’m feeling on top of all things holiday at the moment but we’ll see how long this momentum lasts. We’ve got a long few weeks ahead, cookies to bake, meals to prep, white elephant gifts to secure, travel plans to finalize and, on top of all this, why must it get dark at 4:30?! I’m struggling to stay awake past 9 these days. While I try to cram the most into this December Sunday enjoy these links from around the web!


December 1, 2017

ebb + flow :: thank you

While it’s already, somehow, been a week since Thanksgiving the celebrations aren’t over for us quite yet. I’m whipping up another pumpkin pie, making the best cookies and we’re heading to our annual Friendsgiving tomorrow. If history is any indication, it’s going to be quite the feast. Hope you have a weekend filled with good friends and food as well. Catch you Sunday!

Holiday Scents

November 29, 2017

ebb + flow :: holiday scents

Having a fake tree this year (gasp!), the Erickson abode is faking fresh pine scents with candles and it’s not working. Might have to grab some evergreen boughs in my travels and make this winter wonderland legit.
