5 things to consider when starting a family business

Have you ever wondered how you might like having a family-run business? Well, Kirk and I have been married for 10 years now and running Sycamore Street Press for 7. And we’ve survived, ha!

Friday Favorites


From 2009 – 2011, I did a weekly blog post called Friday Favorites where I shared a little link love. Remember how all the bloggers used to do that? (Yes, I realize that some still do. And yes, it feels weird to be nostalgic about blogging.)

The perfect getaway.

How did I miss this TV show? Just watched the pilot and it was so good.

Calling all indie brick & mortar shops.

So much to learn.

Sweet letterpress card.

Awhile back, I ran out of the time and budget to continue my decorating efforts, and things just came to a halt. Then we got used to how things looked, I got out of decorating mode, and voila, we’ve been in a holding pattern for about 2 years now. My friend Meta is determined to help me break that pattern. And I say….

Teddy Was Here

Teddy Was Here
  1. I need this coconut bath soak to hydrate my skin after being in the sun all summer.
  2. I’m currently waiting for these Warby Parker glasses to arrive and I can’t wait!
  3. Best Made Company has the coolest patches, like this Teddy Roosevelt one.
  4. This tortoise watch is at the top of my wish list.
  5. Absolutely love this antlers letterpress print!
