A NEW BED FOR HENRY HOLBROOK


Henry Holbrook, Luckiest Kid on Planet Earth, recently got himself the upgrade of a lifetime thanks to Land of Nod, the sweetest online destination for all things kid. I swear I think Huck may have been a four-leaf clover in a past life. 

There is something really magical about a bunk bed, isn't there? ("Bump bed," if you're Huck.) I remember desperately wanting a bunk bed when I was a kid, even though I didn't share a bedroom. And pretty much the minute Huck learned the things even existed, he was over the moon with excitement at the prospect of someday talking us into getting him one. We're talking constant negotiation, bunk beds were always on the table. 

"I eat my dinner and then can I have a bump bed?" 
"Mmmmm, how about a cookie." 

We recently had the opportunity to work with Land of Nod to spruce up Huck's bedroom space, and of course we knew immediately what we had to do. This was our moment! Our bump bed moment! The magic of a bunk bed, I think, lies in all of the non-sleeping possibilities. Oh the things a bunk bed can become with the help of a little imagination! I may be fulfilling my own childhood dreams vicariously through this one, I'm not ashamed to admit it. :)

A few more photos of Huck's new space and plenty of source information after the jump!

TOT ZIENS AMSTERDAM + HAPPY WEEKEND!


Signings in Amsterdam and a six hour train ride to Berlin for me, what are you puppies up to?

Links to a few things you might enjoy this weekend . . .

The Kingdom of Westeros in Minecraft

This might brighten your day: designer real estate for hermit crabs

Could you go three days without looking in the mirror? Would it change your life? Leandra did. I once went four days without a mirror on a Youth Conference pioneer trek . . . actually it was sort of transformative, I won't lie.

What happened when two Vogue beauty editors swapped beauty routines for a week

Is this THE BEST HOODIE EVER?

GRANNY HAIR. I want in.

Guys, keep it real. I'll see you in Berlin!

WHAT'S IN YOUR MAKE UP BAG? / 006 :: ERIN BOYLE


Erin Boyle is the blogger behind Reading My Tea Leaves, one of the most gut-wrenchingly beautiful spots online. I love any time I'm able to spend with Erin, she's grounding and exciting all at once, and her Instagram sparks a serious amount of white space envy any time an image pops up in my feed. Erin + I share an editor at Abrams (in fact Erin just submitted her final manuscript! congratulations!!!!!!) and I can not wait to get my hands on that thing, the very minute it's printed. Erin is the textbook definition of inspirational. So excited to have her for this.
