how to handle rejection

how to handle rejection

hi friends! I recently was having a bad afternoon where I felt really defeated and disappointed by rejection. I had spent a ton of time on a new work project proposal and was hopeful/excited about the opportunity and then…got rejected (after several weeks of no response – but that’s a different story 🙃). when we are told NO (whether it’s a job offer or promotion you didn’t get, a relationship that didn’t work out, a proposal or idea that was turned down, feeling left out in a social circle, etc.) it can be hard to not let it affect your entire day or self-worth. I’m […]

our san francisco closet nursery & small space living with baby tips

our san francisco closet nursery & small space living with baby tips

I’ve been thinking a lot about our old apartment and in particular, Lucy’s teeny tiny closet nursery. I realized I never shared photos of it on here! Our small SF apartment  and closet nursery were featured on Glitter Guide and The Everymom, but I want to make sure they are documented on my own little corner of the Internet, too. ✨ STARTING WITH A BLANK CANVAS: Our apartment in San Francisco was 650ish feet, and the living room and bedroom were connected by pretty French doors that we usually kept open. One bonus to the very small space was that the apartment had two generously sized […]

flight tips for traveling with babies and young toddlers

flight tips for traveling with babies and young toddlers

Hi friends! I’ve had several people ask me to share my tips and tricks for flying with a baby and I’ve been meaning to write this post for a LONG time. ✈️When Lucy was younger, I shared a lot of tips on my Instagram Story (HERE) but I haven’t shared a lot of tips recently, so here it goes. ✨As a quick backstory: we decided early on that we weren’t going to let having a child stop us from traveling. Does it change the travel experience? ABSOLUTELY. Does it require wayyyy more planning + logistics and way less sleep? TOTALLY. But, I don’t regret any […]

entryway-turned-sitting-area refresh with wayfair

This post is sponsored by Wayfair, a brand I love and shop from regularly. Thanks for supporting businesses that I partner with! Hey everyone! Today, I’m super excited to share photos from our entryway turned sitting area/play space. It’s not 100% finished, but it’s super close, and I’m really in love with the way this space looks so far. The only thing we really need to do is find art we like to go on the walls (because Lucy’s birthday balloon wreath thing won’t last forever, sadly! 🎈😩). Our house was built in 1919 and has an awkwardly large entry area. When you walk into […]

travel adventures: belgium

Gravensteen Castle — touristy, but super cool to walk through an old castle. It was self-guided, and we could explore the entire thing — not just “sectioned off” areas you see sometimes in old home tours or museums. Plus, there was an epic view of Ghent from the top! We also took a day trip to the super cute town of Bruges. I had a lot of people tell me how much they loved visiting this adorable town. While there, we had breakfast (BAGELS!) at the v popular Sanservia Bagelsalon, visited the castle (Belfry of Bruges), had beers at Cambrinus and Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan and […]

This post is sponsored by Wayfair, a brand I love and shop from regularly. Thanks for supporting brands I partner with! Hello, hello! I’ve shared a few photos of our Nashville house here on my blog and also on Instagram, but I’m hoping to also share individual posts showing you different rooms! Today, I’m going to share some photos of one corner in our living room. ✨ Wayfair reached out to me and asked me to share how I was doing a little design refresh in the New Year. I’ve been in a constant design refresh pretty much since we moved in October, BUT was super […]
