For the month of March, we have chosen to highlight bohemian goddess, Alexis Jade Kaiser. She has the kindest, most gorgeous family and is the queen of pulling off every hair color in the book. She is so positive and all in all – the sweetest, most inspiring mama you'll ever meet! You'll always feel good vibes when you're around her. 
  

Tell us a little bit about yourself... 

Hi, I'm Alexis Kaiser! I'm 26 years young, an Aquarius, and born in Overland Park, Kansas. I was raised in Kaysville, Utah for the majority of my life. I love my sweet babies Billie Stone (girl, 18 months) and Jude Grey (boy, 2 months) and my sweet hunk of burning love, Adam. We currently live in Utah. We have 2 fur babies and life is pretty great. I love laying on the beach with salty skin and hair and feeling the suns warmth on my skin (lol I live in the wrong place). I also loving playing with fun hair colors and fun hair styles! I also really love toying with fun and unique fashion. I dislike dry heals on sheets when I get in bed... is there ANYTHING worse?!

What are some small things that make your day better?   

A hot cup of coffee (mostly drink lukewarm #momlife) , listening to my favorite jams in the kitchen and going on walks with my mini's. 
  

What do you want to be remembered for?  

Honestly, this has changed so much the older and older I get. But I want to be remembered for how I made people feel. And hopefully that's a good feeling :)

If you had to give this chapter of your life a title, what would it be and why?  

The chronicles of a mama to two under two. I'm in a crazy season of life right now! But it's abundant and rich in love. My two mini's keep me so dang busy but their 
little souls radiate wherever they go. I'm incredibly lucky to be their mama.

Orange Crepe Stack Recipe

Orange Crepe Stack Recipe

Here at Mae Woven, we love a good treat. I mean, who doesn't?! Today we are getting in the kitchen and sharing one of our favorite recipes that is sure to tickle your taste buds – with a special appearance from our gorgeous Turkish hand towels. If you are an orange lover like us, this one's for YOU!

Crepe Recipe:

1 cup all purpose flour

2 eggs

½ cup milk

½ cup water

¼ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons butter, melted

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and eggs and whisk until well blended. Slowly stir in the milk and water. Add in the melted butter and salt, then beat until smooth. If the batter appears too runny, add more flour. If it appears too thick, add more water/milk.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Pour, using a ⅓ measuring cup, onto the warm pan. Tilt the pan in a circular motion to ensure the batter coats the surface evenly.
  3. Cook for about 1 minute (or until the sides start to lift off of the pan). Loosen around the edges with a spatula, then turn and cook the other side. Start stacking each complete crepe on top of another.

*To get the same outcome as photo shows, quadruple this recipe!

Orange Icing Recipe:

1 ¾ cups powdered sugar

¼ cup orange juice (squeeze from orange)

1 tablespoon orange zest

1 teaspoon butter, melted

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, orange juice, and orange zest. Whisk until lumps have vanished.
  2. Add the melted butter and whisk together until smooth. If the icing is too thick, microwave for 30 seconds.
  3. Let mixture sit (if microwaved) for a couple minutes, then pour over crepe stack.
  4. Add powdered sugar and orange & lemon slices for extra touch. 

ENJOY! Our Turkish kitchen towels make the cleanup process easy. We swear by them! They are made with high-quality cotton which makes them soft and highly absorbent. Perfect for any messes made in the kitchen.

Not only do our Turkish towels know how to clean up, but they also make the perfect kitchen accessory. Hang them up on your towel rack or lay them under your hot dish full of delicious Orange Crepes.

Alyssia x Mae Woven

Alyssia x Mae Woven

For the month of February, we have chosen to highlight the incredible Alyssia Moore. She is an astonishing mother of two, wife, friend and inspiration to all. She has amazing taste, which rings true by the looks of her beautiful home & style. We truly adore her for all that she is and more!  

Tell us a little bit about yourself... 

Well to start we live in Nashville, TN. I work as a doula and birth worker when I have time, now that our son Folger is a little older it’ll be easier to take on more mamas! My husband is a musician, writer, and a session player when he isn’t traveling! Our first four years of marriage were spent traveling together A LOT! Now that we have babes I’m home more, but we still like to go out with papa when we can! Ella’s first trip was to Norway when she was 4 months - it was a blast. We want our kids to experience other cultures, and see different parts of the world from a young age. We are planning on traveling a lot within the next year, so I am getting excited about that! Fun little fact about my family: a lot people ask about our son’s name and why we named him Folger. It’s my moms family name (and yes! It is the Folger coffee family but they actually sold it forever ago haha), and I’ve always loved the idea of using it for a boy! Other things I love are our church community, cooking with friends/family, going on long walks when the weather is good, and spring! It’s my favorite season.

If you could shop at any store for free, which would you choose & why?

Probably Target, because I mean, I go at least two times a week! Haha! Mom life! OR Shop Doen my favorite shop to buy clothing for myself and Ella.

What do you consider your biggest strength and weakness?

Oh man, I would say my biggest weakness would be to overcommitting to things! It’ll be Monday, and I’ll realize that I’ve planned so many things that I’ll have to cancel some just so I can have a minute to relax. It always ends up making me stressed, I would think I would have learned by now! Haha. I would say one of my biggest strengths would be loyalty. I really really love my people - I think that’s how I can get into trouble with overcommitting. I just want my everyone to know I’m there for them, and that I’m sensitive to whatever they are walking through in that season. Life is so much easier when we show compassion, and listen to each other. I know I’m still learning that for sure. How do you balance the two? I think just being honest about what I can handle, and do for others helps a lot! 

Do you prefer salty or sweet?

Salty! Always!

What did you do in the last 24 hours that made someone else's life more enjoyable?

I took Ella to ballet – haha it’s her favorite thing in the whole world. It’s early in the morning, but I’m so glad we do it!
