When kids get to a certain age you just come to expect change. And Ayden’s had his fair share. For instance, this year the kid will only wear button-downs. Like what happened to your tees and hoodies? We’re not debating that anymore. But there’s one thing he’s been really great about and it’s family time. The
Fall traditions and an afternoon at the apple orchard… It’s one of our favorite things to do this time of year. This was our second visit back at Aamodt’s Apple Farm. It’s such a gorgeous setting and we love stopping in at the vintage barn for goodies. It’s just a great place to spend an afternoon and
If there ever were a uniform for fall, the classic cable knit sweater and jeans prove to be a mainstay every season. Men, this combo looks polished every time. I’m loving the color green right now–in all shades of olive, army and khaki green. Even if it’s not your thing, you may be surprised by its versatility.
Side note today… I wanted to talk about something not often discussed. And that’s my age. Not that being over 40 is anything to be embarrassed about–just that I felt it didn’t matter.

I don’t remember when it happened, but my style has totally evolved from heels to flats. Not that I’ve given them up completely, but if I could
One of the shows we attended this weekend was John Paul Ataker–held at Skylight Clarkson Square in New York City. Designer, Numan Ataker, a native of Turkey grew up in the fashion business with his family specializing in textiles. Ataker himself was classically trained as a tailor which helped in honing his skills as a
New York, New York!!! We spent just a couple short days in the city for Fashion Week. And of course, had to fit in some tourist time to explore. It’s been awhile since Hubby and I had a getaway without our son. But this was a work trip, so I’m not feeling too guilty about
Summer’s finally slowing down as we get ready for another school year. Thankfully, we have one more long weekend to celebrate before the kids head back. Many of you are probably making plans for the lake or beach. For us, we’ll be busy packing for a move and hopefully will be able to squeeze in some MN State Fair
Yaayyyyy for the weekend! I so wanted to sleep in today, but the thought of sweet custard buns got us out early!! There happens to be a Chinese bakery in town that makes them–apparently the only one in the Twin Cites. What a find! They have everything from bbq pork buns to delicious roast duck. It’s a
