Cute food always wins at my house and I'm loving these sweet heart apple snacks. Super easy, too. All you need is a small heart shape cookie cutter and a couple helping hands. Yum!

I love contour of the Grazia, the thin arms and graceful back are perfect and creates such a lovely shape. And the Duo Side table would look fantastic in just about any room. Yay for non-chunky nursery furniture!

Nothing cozier than baking cookies with the kids during the holidays. Messy tasty fun! My friend Psalms came up with a tasty (& healthy!) thumbprint cookie recipe the kids can practically manage on their own. My own son Owen had a particular fun time smooshing his thumb into each cookie and scooping the jam.
For the recipe, go to page 11 & 12 of the f&f Holiday Gift Guide & Mag.
Meet Chase Simmering. She's the creative force behind Strange Birdy Studio. Strange Birdy is a small design studio that has re-imagined the standard baby "book" & how baby's 1st year is documented. Super upbeat, modern, edgy... and relatable. And? She's even thought to document all the miscellaneous milestones such as "peeing on parents" (been there!). Strange Birdy Studio is also part of the current batch of Forest Finds.
What is your fondest childhood holiday memory?
My fondest childhood holiday memory is probably driving and picking out our Christmas tree from Mr. Potter's farm. Mr. Potter delivered fresh eggs and chicken to my family for years and each Christmas, we would drive an hour to his farm and walk deep into his land in search of the perfect tree. We'd have sugar cubes and carrots in our pockets for his horses, and there were always litters of newborn kittens to hold and thermoses of hot cider to drink. Every year my sisters and I would try and pick the biggest and fullest tree we could find and the search was very focused but extremely exciting. There were more than a couple years where the tops of the trees would be bent under our ceiling--from a child's perspective, once fully decorated and lit-up, it felt like the set of the Nutcracker in our living room.
What is your child's/family's most loved holiday tradition?
My daughter is 2 1/2 (and soon to be a sister) and just starting to really understand holidays and traditions. One thing that my husband and I have made a tradition is picking a special food we can make with her for each holiday. My husband loves to take her to the garden to learn about and pick ingredients for the meals they create together--I typically handle the desserts. For the upcoming holidays, she'll definitely be doing a lot of dough rolling and pie-filling. We also have carried on a tradition that my mother began, where each year she would design an ornament for each of us that symbolized something significant from our year. It's wonderful to unpack and hang the ornaments, and tell each story as you go. Her sister is due to arrive shortly after Christmas so we're going to fold in as much old and new tradition as we can before then!
What is your favorite holiday treat?
Being raised by an amazing cook and foodie and now being married to one, picking a favorite is nearly impossible. One savory treat I can't seem to handle skipping every Christmas though is Yorkshire Pudding. It's pretty decadent but definitely one of those nostalgia foods I can't seem to outgrow. I wish I could link to my mother's recipe but found this one which seems pretty spot on.
