We found the duvet at Ikea a number of years back.

I’ve always liked the name Zelda as a Z girl’s name and we both love the video game as well. That said, we get a lot “hey like Zelda Fitzgerald.” Either way, we don’t mind the comparison.

I’m nowhere close to having kids, but I’ve always thought of adopting if I was blessed enough to do so. I love Zelda’s name! I’m a geeky gamer so I immediately think of the legendary game(s). What was your inspiration?

You have inspired me with all of the color in your house. I am here in Anchorage too. I find the lack of bright colors in the winter to be a little sad for me. Thank you for sharing your home and your family with us. They are both beautiful.

Be well,
Liv

P.S. I have a two year old if you would ever be interesting in getting together for a play date.

I loved hearing that you are open to questions because it opens people up
to possibilities. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed seeing your beautiful home.

I remember breaking a [cheap, ugly] glass as a child and feeling so glum about it. I don’t want my kids to feel like any “thing” matters more to me than they do. Beautiful family.

What a beautiful family. 7 months ago we brought home our youngest through adoption, so I’m a little bit of a sucker for adoption stories!

If you are averse to winter, Alaska can be a tough place to live, but if you enjoy getting outside into the snow, it’s a wonderful place to live and raise a family.

To answer a few of the questions above –

-I built the shelves a number of years ago based on these plans

-The bike print/art was found on Etsy.

-We were? are? both in our early-mid 30s.

-Inadvertently, we are working hard to promote sales of yellow paint ;)

Thanks all again! Z

It even has me thinking about moving to Alaska :) (My husband fantasizes about moving there someday) I noticed 2 different ladder bookshelves – where did those come from? I LOVE them! Thanks for sharing your home and your family, Meg.

What a lucky little girl, who will surely grow up to think she lived in a really fun house :-)

I love the range of homes you showcase and knowing that what really makes a home is not the “stuff” but the people who live in it. Thank you to these families for sharing a glimpse into their sacred spaces.

I, too, never fancied myself a mother, but it’s the best, most fulfilling, most amazing job ever. :)

Who knew yellow kitchen cabinets would be so gorgeous!! I would love to know about the paired bicycle prints above the bed (Zelda’s?) in the blue room. Love those.

Loving the art on the walls and all the yellow paint!

Also an intriguing story, since my husband and I haven’t really made a decision on the having kids front. I’m wondering how old they were when Zelda came into their lives…

My favorite are those yellow cabinets! And Zelda’s sweet face of course. Love the idea of having her own plant. Why didn’t I think of that?
