kids costume dress up station

kids costume dress up station

Lucy’s big Christmas gift this year was a dress up station! I wanted to share a little bit more about the dress up station and what accessories I included.  What I love about this gift is that it encourages imaginative play, and is an activity Lucy can do now but also in the years to come. It’s a gift that can be built upon and isn’t necessarily “done”; we can always add more costumes and accessories to it! The most time consuming part was finding a kids sized costume / dress up rack that I actually liked. A lot of the options I found were […]

lucy meets winnie (and more hospital photos)

lucy meets winnie (and more hospital photos)

A few weeks ago, I shared Winnie’s birth story and today, I wanted to share our ‘Fresh 48’ session in the hospital. It was actually more like a ‘Fresh 24’ as these photos were snapped Friday morning, 18 or so hours after little Winnie’s grand entrance into the world! These photos mean so much to me and I’m soo glad we had these moments captured. My mom brought Lucy into the hospital to meet Winnie and it was such a sweet moment. When Winnie cried, Lucy wanted to give her her “hop hop” (bunny). And then again when Lucy left, she wanted to leave her […]

upstairs guest bedroom oasis with wayfair

This post is sponsored by Wayfair, a brand I’ve worked with and shopped from for years. Thanks for reading! We recently completed an upstair renovation project, and I’m excited to share a few more photos of the space today! I shared our new upstairs bathroom in this post and today, I’m going to share the bedroom area! We had a guest room upstairs before the renovation, so knew we wanted the space to have a comfortable, pretty area for our guests to sleep. Now, it’s just a lot more open concept, and a lot more bright and airy thanks to the skylights! One of the […]

postpartum essentials

postpartum essentials

Winnie has been here for two weeks! We’ve been in a sweet, exhausting newborn daze over here and adjusting to our ‘new normal’ as a family of four (five including Jack!). There’s a lot of planning and prepping for what to get the baby during pregnancy, but there seems to be less of an emphasis on what will help the mom during the postpartum period. Our bodies go through A LOT during pregnancy and labor/delivery, and it’s important to take care of it in the weeks (and months) after the baby arrives. I wanted to share my own postpartum essentials with you! This list is […]
