A Gender Neutral Nursery for Twins

It’s a whole different ballgame when you’re planning a nursery for boy/ girl twins. The usual pink and blue just won’t cut it. Sow how to create a space that feels whimsical and fun without an explosion of gender specific color? This little nursery is how. Using texture, pattern and a book wall to be envied, Mama and designer, Ashley Gish, crafted a spot as sweet as can be. See even more captured by Conrhod Zonio in the gallery.

My husband and I were blessed to welcome our twins into the world on March 25, 2015. I had so much fun preparing a sweet nursery for Elle and Ford before they arrived. When creating a gender neutral space for boy/ girl twins, I wanted it to be a room filled with love and lots of playfulness. From a fun mid-century dresser to a colorful book wall, I hope it is a space where many memories are made!

Roasted Strawberry Margaritas

Did you know margarita in Spanish means “love at first sight”? Actually we made that one up, but looking at this beauty from A Happy Food Dance you’d never know. It’s a tantalizing twist on the classic made with roasted strawberries, and we’ve finally found our spring fling.

“Roasted strawberry margaritas are delicious for two reasons – the roasted strawberries basically make their own simply syrup so you’re using some of the berries natural sugars to sweeten your drink and it pretty much tastes like jam!  Oh and it’s a margarita!  So three!” says Jessica of A Happy Food Dance.
