Lucy and Winnie’s Colorful Christmas Tree!

Lucy and Winnie’s Colorful Christmas Tree!

The girls, like most kids, are OBSESSED with the holidays. Lucy especially talks about Christmas ALL year long. This year, I wanted to put a little Christmas tree in their room, filled with colorful and whimsical ornaments. Their room is such a colorful and sunshine-y space, and I  wanted their little tree to have that same magic. ✨ I  ordered this small 4 foot artificial white tree and filled it with pink ornaments and other fun ornaments inspired by their room (🌈☀️)  and their interests (animals, dessert, etc. 🐰🍦). It brings SO much joy to them and they really love it so much! It makes […]

Holiday Gift Idea: Photo Puzzles!

Holiday Gift Idea: Photo Puzzles!

Fun and meaningful holiday gift idea – custom photo puzzles! Lucy LOVES puzzles and I ordered her this adorable puzzle featuring a photo from our Italy trip. It’s the 60 piece ‘Marvelous Flowers’ puzzle in the ‘Peacock’ color. I know she’s going to be just so tickled by this puzzle! The custom photo puzzles are from Minted and come in SO many different designs. There’s three options available — 12 piece, 60 piece, and 252 piece puzzles. The 12 piece puzzle would be great for toddlers, 60 piece is perfect for preschoolers/older kids (like Lucy!), and the 252 piece is a great gift for an […]

On mourning a friendship

On mourning a friendship

I really connected with this ‘Ask Elaine’ article recently published in The Washington Post. I love following Elaine Welteroth and was really blown away by her direct, but thoughtful advice to someone who was struggling with grieving a 20-year friendship. Friendship changes and endings are something no one really talks about or that you feel prepared for. I’ve shared about friendship in one of my email newsletters here and in my IG highlight here if you’re interested in more on that topic. 💛 Here’s the ‘Ask Elaine’ article about mourning friendships that I really loved! Question: What’s your advice on long-term-friendship breakups? When I say […]

Kids Routine Chart

Kids Routine Chart

My 4 year old is always asking “what are we doing?” and wants to know the plan for the day and what’s coming next. I wanted to find a visual way to help her understand what we’re up to and found this routine chart on Etsy! I purchased and downloaded the digital files, customized it with my kids’ names, and then had everything laminated. From there I cut the routine cards and used Velcro to attach them to the morning, afternoon, and evening charts. I think this will really help her visualize and feel better prepared for her day! 1. Purchased this daily visual routine […]

Europe 2022 (Part 4): Venice, Italy

Europe 2022 (Part 4): Venice, Italy

Hi there! This the fourth and final blog post in my series about our Europe 2022 vacation. As a reminder, we flew into Venice, Italy and then drove to the Lake Garda area for a couple days. Next, we drove up to The Dolomites for several days in the mountains. From there, we drove to Rovinj, Croatia and stayed in a kinderhotel that was incredible for our kids! Our last stop was back in Venice. We dropped off our rental car back at the airport and then took a water taxi (!!) to our hotel for a couple days to explore Venice and relax before heading back home […]
