How we are keeping warm this winter

Mother Nature has been a bit crazy this last year. The drastic weather changes go far beyond the old joke… “Welcome to Ohio! If you don’t like the weather wait 5 minutes.” Last week it snowed like crazy. This week it has been 60 degrees and rainy… in JANUARY!

After three days of Spring like weather, the temperature has dropped again and we need to bundle up. This winter my go to winter wear has been a knitted cowl made by my super crafty and stylish friend, Jac.

Check out the Nora & Jac store for your own warm and wonderful cowl!


The first day of Spring! {Pinteresting}

Happy first day of Spring! This beautiful, albeit unseasonal, weather we have been having feels like an actual Spring awakening. I’m not entirely convinced that we won’t get a surprise April blizzard but until then I am going to revel in the blooming of my daffodils and tulips!

To celebrate this lovely first Spring day, I offer some of my favorite seasonal pins from Pinterest from the past week!

It’s so easy being green {Pinteresting}

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to share some of my favorite green finds on Pinterest. I tried to narrow it down but it still left me with 10 loves.

All this green has me ready for Spring! Even though our crazy, unpredictable Ohio weather has me thinking Spring may have sprung early, I’m trying not to put the sweaters away too soon. Once I do that a blizzard will strike! Until then, we are off to the park!
