Celia's Book Nook

It's been a minute since our last installment of Celia's Book Nook.  Our latest find is Playful by Merrilee Liddiard.  I first saw this craft book on one of my FAVORITE blogs Design Mom as a giveaway, but I was so excited by the book that we went a head and ordered it.

There are a couple templates for some fun finger painting projects.  Cecilia is really into painting lately so it was the perfect activity for her on this rainy day.

There are loads of GREAT ideas for all sorts of projects for you and your little one to enjoy together.  It's just as much for parents as it is children.  I can't wait to try some others.  If you have this book tag us on instagram @thisway_thataway We'd love to see what you're up to.

One of the projects I'm most excited about


I can hardly believe we're 10 portraits from our goal of 52.  Out of all these portraits I've rarely captured a photo of Cecilia looking at the camera.  Here's one for the books.

My little Explorer

The other day we went out on a scavenger hunt.  We have been trying to decipher a riddle that has sent us to two different locations.  Even though we've yet to be successful in our search, we have seen some beautiful new places.  Nothing better than a little Family Time in nature.

Down The Rabbit Hole: Hozier "Sedated"

I've featured Hozier before on Down The Rabbit Hole, but he is such an exquisite singer songwriter with his bluesy gospel saturated melodies, he deserved another spot with his latest release "Sedated".  With a gift for story telling, he disguises brilliant lyrics with infectious and haunting consonance.  A heart throbbing drum beat opens the track and leads you through a cinematic performance I had previously only ever experienced when listening to Bjork or Jeff Buckley.  Just about EVERY song by Hozier takes you on a journey, and I love every minute of it. 

The self titled album is available for pre-order on iTunes and will be fully released October 7th, 2014.  If you enjoyed this song I would recommend you check out his other tracks:
"Take Me To Church" (recently covered by Ed Sheeran)

October has arrived and the seasons change quickly here.  It seems as though the leaves just turned and now are beginning to fall.  We have already experienced the first frost, which I am told means only a matter of weeks before Winter is here.  I will savor this moment watching you ride your bike during our first Fall in Alaska.
