3 easy ways to create fall vibes at home with wayfair

Hello and happy fall! 🍂 This is my first blog post coming to you from NASHVILLE! We moved in last Thursday and the past few days have been a crazy whirlwind as we’re trying to get settled and situated into our new house. I’m excited to share more soon about our process of buying our house and the ever-evolving list of projects and updates we’re doing to turn it into a home. 💛 While in Europe, Wayfair  reached out and asked me to share more about decorating for fall. I have been partnering with their team for a few years, and was extra excited about this […]

farewell, san francisco & personal reflections

farewell, san francisco & personal reflections

Eeep! We only have a couple days left in San Francisco and the past few weeks have felt like quite the whirlwind. While I’m excited to do something new, to live somewhere different, to have a new pace of life, it’s so so so hard to leave San Francisco. I’m going to try to capture it all in this blog post, but truly don’t think I have all the words for the jumble of emotions I have about this place. I also couldn’t even begin to choose photos to perfectly capture my time here (hello, hundreds of Instagram photos / Facebook albums and thousands of […]

life update – we’re moving!

life update – we’re moving!

Life update! We are moving to Nashville! Cue: all the emotions! 🤗😬 So, a little backstory on the move: I lovelovelovelovelove San Francisco, but didn’t ever think SF would be my forever place. When I first moved, I gave myself two years and told myself I would re-evaluate after that. Nope, two years wasn’t enough (not even close) — some of my very best friends had moved here and I met Eric and tons of other friends-turned-family and the city just felt like home. At that point, I always said that leaving San Francisco (when and if I did) would be the hardest decision I’d […]

baby registry essentials

baby registry essentials

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a VERY long time, and here I am, sharing it finally right before Lucy turns 6 months. Oops! Better late than never. Anyway, a lot of pregnant friends have reached out asking about what to put on their baby registry, so wanted to finally compile my list! I’m going to share what we added to our registry, what we used/didn’t use, etc. We have a small apartment, so I really tried to be mindful of what products we registered for, and limit the number of large baby items we received. I also wanted to ensure that the […]

swaddle storage solution + our favorite swaddles

swaddle storage solution + our favorite swaddles

As you likely know, we live in a pretty tiny apartment and converted E’s walk-in closet into a nursery! I’m always looking for ways to be smart and strategic with our space, and today, I wanted to share my one creative and inexpensive solution for storing baby blankets and swaddles. I purchased an over-the-door hanging shoe organizer ($8) and hung it on the door in between Lucy’s closet-turned-nursery and the kitchen. We store all of Lucy’s swaddles and lightweight blankets here! Not only is this an inexpensive solution, but it’s also super convenient to find and easily grab a swaddle/blanket when we need. Our swaddle […]

my first mother’s day!

my first mother’s day!

“…now that I am a mother, I understand what Mother’s Day is about: it’s about looking through our lives and recognizing the act of mothering everywhere we see it, and more than that, recognizing that when any of us mother– when we listen, nurture, nourish, protect–we’re doing sacred work.” – Shauna Niequist   Happy Mother’s Day! This is my first Mother’s Day as a mom (outside of being a #dogmom 😉) and I’ve been reflecting on the importance and significance of moms. I just love that quote from Shauna Niequist above, reminding me to recognize mothering all around me. I’ve shared Mother’s Day posts celebrating […]
