  1. BROUGHT TO YOU BY Frasier Fir

    Images: 2nd Truth

    As fellow Minnesotans (and Midwesterners!) can attest, the seasonal change from fall to winter often feels like it happens overnight. One day you are walking in glorious sixty-degree weather with leaves crunching beneath your feet, and, quite literally, the next day sleet is whipping at your face when you walk from your car into your home. …

  2. I’m excited to introduce you all to Rebecca Atwood. Her work caught my eye on Instagram a couple years ago and I’ve been watching her career blossom ever since. Multiple fabrics lines, throws, pillows, and a best-selling book later, it’s clear Rebecca has a knack for taking her art and breathing new life into it. It …

  3. BROUGHT TO YOU BY JOANN

    Ready or not, it’s almost winter. And while I love feeling the crisp wind on my face and listening to the crunch of leaves underfoot and seeing the first snowfall, I also have a bit of anxiety this time of year. Fall lasts only so long and then comes the holiday season. It’s not the family …

  4. Bridging the gap between the digital expression of W&D and the physical manifestation of what we’ve built is the ultimate dream for me. And sometimes when you want to tackle a goal that lofty, the pressure to make something AMAZING right out of the gate can be debilitating. Throw your own personal style into the mix …

  5. One of the most impressive women I’ve ever met was my very first boss. Back when I worked for her, she was the newly appointed President of a much-beloved non-profit organization called The White House Project. The White House Project’s mission was to achieve equal representation of women at all levels of leadership, specifically in politics. …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a notebook fanatic. The lovely journals in the Anthropologie sale section get me every single time. No really — you should see my apartment; I’ve managed to curate quite the collection. But see, the problem is that no matter how much I adored these leather-bound diaries, the pages all …

  8. Traveling inspires, traveling invigorates. Traveling also reveals your biggest quirks, insecurities, and ticks, often before the plane’s seatbelt sign has even been turned off. Whether packing a bag to vacation with a new lover or an old friend, don’t let a lack of communication get in your way of a great trip. Before you buckle up …

  9. It’s coming… winter in Minneapolis is right around the corner, as signaled by the first snow. Can you believe it?! Snow in October? None of us were surprised by the below-freezing weather this early in the season, though. I was looking forward to it as an excuse to continue wearing my beloved turtlenecks. Even as I …

  10. We thought we’d be the type of parents who would be extremely thoughtful about the amount of toys we brought into our home. All they need is a wooden spoon and some boxes, right? Yeah, right. Turns out, Joe and I both love playing with toys as much as August does, and within the first year …

  11. I have a confession to make: I used to envy the people who knew exactly what they wanted to be when they grew up. You know, the ones who said from age seven that they wanted to be a doctor, nurse, teacher, firefighter, etc., and then they grew up to be those exact professionals. Why the …

  12. The pure privilege of not waking up all-the-way politically until 2016 is not lost on me. Until about nine or ten months before last year’s election, I had the common political media habits of a young white person living in the city: I’d pay attention to the news leisurely; keep my finger loosely on the pulse …

  13. Rise and shine? More like rise and whine, amiright? If you’re not of the early bird species, I’m not here to convince you to become a morning person. There are things like circadian rhythms to consider with that! I am, however, here to convince you that there are ways we can all make the a.m. a …
