wish-listed // 06.2017

With all our May visitors, too much to do at work, and lots of nice weekend days for summer hiking and mountain days, I’ve not had a lot of time (or even the desire) to spend my evening on my computer too. Now, things have quieted down and we’re back to just the three of us. Martin is off to Houston for a conference this week and this means my evenings are going to be a lot quieter for a bit so hopefully I can catch up on the backlog of post ideas (and home projects) I’ve had in mind for awhile.

At the moment, I’m thankful that Martin took Reese to the track for hammer/scooter training this afternoon, so I get a little break from a busy toddler and time to listen to my audio book while doing laundry and finally pulling together my June wish list ideas. So, here’s what’s topping my wish list this month . . .

wish-listed // 05.2017 {birthday, again}

I cannot believe May is here, especially since it snowed last week. Considering the bright palette featured above, I must still have summer colors on my mind. With Martin still away in the US for a wedding, Reese and I are chilling at home and hopefully going to get some sunshine or playground time in. The countdown is on for the arrival of Martin’s sister and her husband (!) next weekend, then Mother’s Day weekend, then my birthday weekend we’ll be in London (!), and then some more friends are coming at the end of month, so we’re in for a good month. Here’s what’s topping my birthday wish-list this month . . .

wish-listed // 04.2017 {spring}

Spring is here, and the warmth and sunshine of the last few days is definitely filling my head with thoughts of spring cleaning, seasonal bright colors, and a wardrobe refresh. We’re spending the weekend trying to kick the last of our colds, cleaning up our terrace after winter, and just generally enjoying time in the sunshine together. Here’s what’s topping my wish-list this month . . .

I’m back from a week of sightseeing (and conferencing) in Washington, D.C., and we experienced both winter and spring while we were there so that is a bit what I’m feeling still right now. I’m still searching for more of winter’s coziness with snowy days, candlelight, and soup, but I’m also looking forward to more spring sunlight and shoes. Here’s what’s topping my wish-list this month . . .

wish-listed // 02.2017 {happy valentine’s month}

I’m a little sad to say goodbye to January as with February beginning it already seems like winter is almost over and I haven’t had enough snow/mountains/skiing/snowshoeing/etc. yet this year. At least instead of mountain weekends, I’ve had ample time for early spring cleaning, re-decorating, and lots of cookie baking. So here’s what’s topping my wish-list this month . . .

wish-listed // 01.2017 {happy new year}

Happy New Year! We’re just back from a wonderful holiday back in the US. Between a super jet lagged baby, coming down from the high of seeing and now missing all the beloved friends and family we saw over the last few weeks, and the major annoyance of a still lost suitcase, I’m really struggling with the prospect of returning to work tomorrow. Plus, all this cozy, snowy weather isn’t helping my desire to leave the house. So, I’m doing my best to spend the rest of the afternoon thinking only good thoughts, and doing a little planning for this space this year.

While I’m still reveling in all the fun little treats and presents we received over the holidays, I have my eye on some new finds for the new year so here’s what’s topping my wish-list this month . . .

wish-listed // 12.2016 {christmas edition}


I must admit to not really feeling the full Christmas spirit yet this year. While I’m thrilled that we’ll be headed home for the holidays in just two weeks, the fact that we celebrated Thanksgiving late and won’t be here for Christmas means that I’ve put off putting up any holiday decorations. Without twinkle lights, even a little tree, and my favorite crazy wooly gnomes and nutcrackers, Christmas music just isn’t cutting it. So, today I’m off to try and fix that with a trip to the Christmas market and hopefully I’ll come home and feel more like getting out at least a few lights. I hope you’re already feeling more jolly and if you need a bit more help shopping, here’s what’s topping my wish-list this month . . .

November is off to a good start with a morning spent swimming with Reese followed by a quiet afternoon, a long nap (Reese), and enjoying the sun shining off the last of autumn’s leaves (me). I just want to curl up with a good book and stay cozy for the rest of the week. But, since I’ll be off to work tomorrow, I’m keeping my spirits up by thinking about some new accessories. So, with that in mind, here’s what’s topping this month’s wish-list . . .

wish-listed // 10.2016


This weekend is the first rainy, chilly weekend of fall in Zürich and I love it. Our house is quiet as all our guests are away and we’re just enjoying quiet time with Reese (mostly chasing her up the stairs), catching up on things around the house, and enjoying a little more lazy time reading and watching Poldark.

As the weather changes, I’m also excited about switching around my closet, opening my sweater drawer more often, and bringing out more cozy blankets and candlelight around our apartment. So, with that in mind, here’s what’s topping this month’s wish-list . . .

wish-listed // 09.2016

We’re still enjoying the last of summer’s heat and humidity, but September is here, fall is in the air, and it’s back to school season. Fall has always been my favorite season, and even though I’m no longer a student, my yearly calendar still resets this time of year thinking about back to school shopping and sweater weather.

So, here’s what is topping this month’s wish-list . . .
