update + sifted

It has been a busy month: moving and unpacking, adjusting to city life for this country girl at heart, dealing with a sick toddler and baby, a little traveling, trying to find some time to grow our side income to get us to our financial goals, and just the day-to-day responsibilities and modifications at our new home.

Next week I am excited to start sharing some of the recipes I have experimented with for our family (chickpeas are on the menu again!), as well as a few ideas on what to do with an abundance of that summer harvest which may be piling up for you (for me it was plums and potatoes)! I also want to finish the Life-in-a-Fixer posts with the last photos I took before we moved and reveal the plants (and trees!) I started growing at our new home!

Today, I am leaving some links to my favorite internet discoveries since my last sifted post. I hope you enjoy!

: : This homemade deodorant recipe is amazing! It really works!

: : I found sage growing in our yard, so I will be making this as an all-purpose cleaner.

: : Since downsizing to 1,000 square feet, I have found inspiration in posts like this.  Hopefully soon we can build our own tiny home, tailored for our family (there are certain benefits to marrying an architect). Less is more!

: : Love this post about focusing on beauty even in the midst of difficulty. Holding on to those moments, especially in parenting!

    So happy the deodorant recipe works for you too! Daniel and I love it. And I definitely pinned that beautiful home inspiration. I love our 1,000 sq. ft. apartment home, but would love it even more if we had a basement family area and a yard with garden space. Some day 🙂
