You may remember Bonnie Basham Lance from our Mom Next Door feature last year. She is a talented jewelry designer, but most important - she is a mom to her three children,  Hewes, Willa, and Shepard. We caught up with Bonnie to see what she's loving right now.

 1. Etsy! From bathing suits to dream catchers, pillows to light fixtures, I love everything about Etsy. It showcases artists and makes small dreams become big. What's not to love about that?!

2. Family in Austin and Nashville. My brother and his wife and 2 boys live in Austin and we visit as often as we can. We bunk up at his Rollingwood single story modern ranch house and run wild. We shoot bow and arrows in the wooded area next door, the kids go shirtless and try and not get poison ivy. Mckinney Falls State park, the Rollingwood park and pool with play area and grill all in one (come on UP!) Austin Awesome. My husbands family is from Nashville. It's amazing, old school and Jack White's home. We go to the Bellmead Country Club for pasta night, the Station Inn for blue grass, and canoe with Woody.

3. Original gifts. Thoughtful, artisan, unique. I love receiving them and I love giving them. (P.S. Bonnie made these Mom bracelets!!) 

4. The XX. On repeat. Cooking dinner, lounging by the fire. Always a hit

5. State Parks with my kids. We take them hiking regularly here in Dallas but when we get a chance we head out to a state park. Mckinney Falls, Caddo Lake, Beavers Bend, OK, Balmorhea and more. It's wild and fun and the kids love staying in those basic state park houses. We love it because it's easy and inexpensive. And making bacon on a grill while your kids play knights with sticks is cool.
