Curator April and May Besotted BlogWhat is it with the Netherlands that seems to breed this very distinct aesthetic that is so darn good?  April and May’s boards are filled with some incredible finds from interiors to knits. Although I chose to skew black & white for their palette they do have a fair amount of color centric boards as well. Are you already familiar with them?  Over 4 million people are! They also write a couple of popular blogs April and May Studio and April and May Mini. If you like a simple, clean look then I think you will be very happy with their discoveries!

On another note, I am just back from the City of Angels and I am one tired Mama-to-be!  It is tough work growing a human.  It was a rushed trip, solely for business, but it was still nice to be home even for a little bit. When I left Seattle it was summer and when I came back fall had started.  I heard that I will have a chance to see the foliage change which I am really looking forward to and of course I am getting ready for the rain. There’s lot’s to do for everything between now and when the baby arrives and I am hoping my energy can stay up for the task, but truthfully I felt like I could have fallen asleep in my soup at lunch yesterday, so time will tell…

    1. Susan, I think I don’t have a choice, I hopped off the plane in Seattle and my energy level was zapped. I have come to a careening halt in activity level, lol. It’s also harder for me to get around, I am a bit off balance, I can not imagine how it was with twins, you brave, brave woman you! Btw, I am finding it SO hard to find simple neutral clothing that is not a small fortune, it’s near impossible!

  1. I love the boards categorized based on the aesthetic or season of the home – very pretty. Surprised I haven’t run across them before. Good luck with the upcoming weeks! Hopefully you have a chance to relax without having to feel stressed over not getting things done. :)

  2. How wonderful to see we are mentioned on your beautiful blog. Thank you so much! And please take good care of yourself, being pregnant can be hard sometimes. I have two beautiful boys and being pregnant was a big task for me.
