I GRADUATED!

I GRADUATED!

Masters program – done! 🎓✔️I wrote discussion posts, worked on research papers, created presentations, read a lot of textbooks, took quizzes, and collaborated on group projects pretty much everywhere and all the time over the past 20ish months. From coffee shops and the YMCA lobby to doctors offices and airplanes. In between breastfeeding sessions and diaper changes and rocking Lucy to sleep. In the mornings, during nap times, while Lucy went to school, at night after she went to sleep. During family vacations to the beach and on work trips in hotel rooms and while overlooking the Portugal coast. I applied to my program at […]

plant care tips & tricks

plant care tips & tricks

This post has been something I’ve been wanting to share for a long time! I’ve always gotten a lot of questions about our plants, especially since Eric built our backyard greenhouse. We had a ton of plants stuffed into our tiny San Francisco apartment and have always had quite a lot of plants inside our home in Nashville too. Now that the greenhouse plants are inside for the winter, we have 85+ plants inside! I  can’t take any credit for the plants. Eric has the true green thumb and is super deep in the plant game. He spends hours each week watering and caring for […]

Introducing My NEW Textile Collection!

Introducing My NEW Textile Collection!

I have some exciting news! 🎉 I’ve always loved collecting textiles from my travels, and my recent trip to Morocco was no exception. After wandering the souk in Marrakesh and picking out items for our own home, I had the idea to curate and share my love of textiles with others. So, I decided to launch a little creative project – a textile collection, selling one-of-a-kind, Moroccan wool pillows that have been hand-picked by me. All of the pillows are sold at luckycollective.com/shop. Here’s a bunch of information about the pillows and my shop! I’ve always loved having unique, one-of-a-kind items in our home, and […]

we’re having a baby!

we’re having a baby!

It was right around this time two years ago that I was sharing a similar update….but you heard it right, we are having baby #2! Lucy is going to be a big sister! I’m so excited to finally share our news publicly because I am TERRIBLE at keeping secrets. Our little babe is due mid-February, so Lucy will be two years and a couple weeks older than this little guy or girl. I’m a little overwhelmed by the thought of having two kids (plus a dog who thinks he’s a human) but mostly SUPER excited and so grateful. 💛 Obviously, this isn’t my first rodeo […]

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 […]

thirty

Today is my thirtieth birthday! Wow that feels weird to type. 30 feels like a big one. This time last year, I was anxiously awaiting Lucy’s arrival and had just wrapped up a fairly stressful two year contract working at Facebook. The year before that, we spent the day in wine country (and adopted Jack a few days later). The year before THAT, we were in Mexico! In my early 20s, my birthday was spent dressing up and going out with friends for way too many cheap drinks. I still remember celebrating my 21st birthday in college (that feels like another ‘milestone birthday’). How was […]
