Northern Cliffs

March 22, 2018

ebb + flow :: northern cliffs

If anyone deserves a high five this week, it’s the Red Head. Between the dust, fumes, swollen ankles and fatigue I haven’t been in the basement helping with our re-model much at all. You can usually find me perched in bed writing baby shower thank you notes and frantically making to-do lists. Good news, though, we settled on a paint color for the basement living room (after our first attempt fell short). The winner? Benjamin Moore Northern Cliffs! Carpet is getting installed on Saturday, we’re moving some furniture on Sunday (I’ll be supervising) and I can’t wait for our first movie night down there. Bring on the microwave popcorn!

He’s Making A List…

ebb + flow :: he's making a list

Are you ready for all the festivities to come in the days ahead? The to-do list is feeling a little overwhelming but the Red Head and I are taking some time tonight to bell ring for the Salvation Army! The forecast is calling for snow so I think hot chocolate will be a necessity. Make mine a double!

During our trip to Morocco, the Red Head and I took two day trips, the first of which was to Marrakech! We were jazzed. We had heard nothing but great things about this vibrant city. Three hours in the car and a flat tire didn’t drain our enthusiasm and I’m thankful we still had energy because Marrakech requires it. Busy streets, bustling markets, snake charmers, bakers, craftsman, animals and people run every which way. If it weren’t for our very patient tour guide I think we’d still be lost there today. We’d have lots of great trinkets to bring home but we’d still be wandering the markets for sure. Below are a few snaps of our adventure in Marrakech from markets to a great lunch spot and everything else in-between.

While the Red Head and I were in Morocco a couple weeks ago we called Casablanca ‘home’ during our stay. To be honest, it ended up not being the favorite city we visited but it was wonderful to have the cooler temps, an ocean-side hotel and countless restaurants all within blocks every single day. Plus, with Petit Taxis readily available (and cheap!) we felt like the whole city was at our fingertips.

Below are a few snaps from around the city! Highlights include the Hassan II mosque, reading Game of Thrones by candlelight (a nightly occurrence), breathtaking tilework at every turn, fresh fruits and juices at every corner and this amazing dinner spot (not pictured). Next up: Marrakech!

Gone Beachin’

July 14, 2017

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!


Fantasy Football

ebb + flow :: do better

For the second year in a row, I’ve been roped into a Fantasy Football League with the Red Head and his co-workers. I’m, at best, a poor participant. Last week, I forgot to add a kicker to my lineup (apparently, this is a problem) and I told the Red Head ‘I’m going to do better.’ Here’s a public declaration to try and, at least, fill my entire lineup for the rest of the season. I’m all about little goals or should I say field goals? Ha!

ebb + flow :: paint time

Tomorrow! Tomorrow the Red Head and I close on our new house! It’s full of ugly tile, odd rooms, stained carpet and a bathroom that teleported straight from the 70s. Get excited to follow along as we make it ours, one paint stroke at a time.
