december desktop + iphone calendars (4)

it’s december! it’s december! this month’s calendar was inspired by cooler weather and our beautiful smoky mountain pine trees. i wanted to use some teals and a little lime green this month, instead of the traditional christmas green and red. i think they turned out looking very ski-lodge-winter-cabin-y! i hope they will make you feel cozy and snug. :) xo, bonnie

sailing

yesterday we went sailing. david and his family are ol’ pros, since they grew up on the coast of north carolina, but it was my first time. it was amazing! it felt so nice to let the wind guide us, and incredibly peaceful to be out on the water without the sound of a distracting motor. the weather was perfect and i was able to relax in the shade for most of the afternoon. i think i found a new love!

have you ever been sailing? any stories to share?

the august break (4) this month, i’m excited to be participating in the august break, where i’ll be sharing photos with you from my personal life each day and taking a break from writing “regular” content for going home to roost. meanwhile, i’ll be preparing our hearts and our home for baby roost’s arrival and taking some very special time to spend with my love before we welcome our first son into the world. find out more about the august break and how to join here.

sprouts!

home sprouting guide

since i’ve been meaning to start sprouting my own beans and seeds at home, i was thrilled to run across kinfolk’s home sprouting guide. making bean sprouts at home is really easy, inexpensive and super nutritious! each tiny sprout is packed full of nutrients and antioxidants and are much more nutritious than the dormant seed or bean from which they spring from. after sprouting, the beans and seeds contain much more absorbable protein, calcium, potassium, sodium, iron, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, and C. add them to salads and sandwiches for added crunch, texture and flavor! i believe i’m going to start with mung beans, lentils and chickpeas. what kind of sprouts do you prefer?

adobe illustrator keyboard shortcuts

i use shortcuts while working in adobe illustrator constantly, and find that it’s an incredible time saver! it makes things easier, quicker and more streamlined. however, it can be really hard to learn shortcuts for any new program (just put me working in photoshop and i’m lost!). that’s why i really like these keyboard shortcut guides. you can use them to refer to, or set them as your desktop background to keep them handy at all times.
