Long Weekend

September 1, 2017

ebb + flow :: long weekend

Anyone else readyyyy for this long weekend? My mom and sister are heading north for the weekend and we’ve got tons of options to keep us busy for a few days. State Fair? Lake Minnetonka? Farmer’s Market? Walker Sculpture Garden? The world is our oyster! I’m soaking up every second of this last summer weekend so I’ll catch you next week for our regular scheduled programming. Have a safe and happy holiday, friends!

ebb + flow :: off again

After a week at home the Red Head and I are loading up the car for another family adventure. Our destination this time? Door County. Bring on the cheese, wine, nephew cuddles, beach time and family dinners. It’s going to be a wild few days!

Gone Beachin’

ebb + flow :: gone beachin'

After a wild week of house projects, late nights, early mornings and a dash of stress the Red Head and I are heading to Myrtle Beach for his annual family vacation! We’ll be soaking up the sun, swimming in the ocean (I’m the only one that ever goes in the water!), reading books, riding go karts (Red’s request) and checking out the sites before we’re back next week. I’ll see you then. Have a wonderful weekend!


Weekend Time

April 7, 2017

ebb + flow :: weekend time

Oh man, I disappeared there for a bit this week. Sorry, friends. A classic case of booked social evenings, freelance work and never-ending house projects. But I’m back just in time to sign off for a weekend of fun with my mom while she’s in town! It’s shaping up to be a beautiful few days and I cannot wait. Sending some sunshine and good weekend vibes your way as well. Enjoy!

Weekend At Home

November 28, 2016

ebb + flow :: weekend at home

Despite the traffic jam we experienced yesterday, heading to Chicago this weekend was the perfect post-Black Friday therapy. There was an impressive brunch spread, an abundance of family traditions, an over-used selfie stick and lots of laughs. Also, wine. Plenty of wine. I’m hoping for more of all of those things sooner rather than later and hope you had a wonderful holiday as well!

Shout out to my nephew who snapped this pic with his finger covering half the lens. I love it!

Weekend Starts Now.

September 28, 2016

ebb + flow :: weekend starts now

My weekend starts now and I’m ready! There’s a little sporting event in town (ha!) and since I married into a family of golfers the Ryder Cup has become a must-see! I’m donning patriotic gear, grabbing a few cocktails and embracing the country club lifestyle for a few days. After that, it’s back to reality with some more house projects (painting all. the. things.) but a very exciting, spontaneous visit from my mom too! This is going to be a great weekend, I can just feel it. Hope you have the same!


Third Year + New Digs

August 5, 2016

ebb + flow :: birthday + home

Yesterday was a smashing success around here, friends. The giant grey dog, Drake, celebrated his third year of life (at what age will he start to CHILL OUT?!), we closed on our new house and moved a trailer full of stuff without killing anyone or each other. Pretty successful, no? We capped off the night with two pints of Ben & Jerry’s and a RedBox. Now, we tackle moving the rest of our stuff from storage, tearing down walls and the serious home to-do list. I’m going to be documenting all the fun with the #EricksonReno on Instagram. Be sure to follow along!

Alarm Clock Set

ebb + flow :: washington island, wi

How amazing is this photo my sister took up in Door County? The Red Head and I are hitting the road at the CRACK OF DAWN tomorrow to meet her and the rest of my family in Wisconsin for a couple days of cheese, beer, beaches and merriment. After that we’re driving south to Chicago for a wedding of a dear friend. We sure know how to schedule an action-packed weekend, eh? Catch you when I’m back next week!
