6 Amazing Alpine Playgrounds in the Swiss Alps

6 Amazing Alpine Playgrounds in the Swiss Alps

I  wanted to share some of our favorite playgrounds that we visited during our trip to Switzerland! Allmendhübel “Flower Park”  Details: This was a perfect spot for families — there’s a zip line, slides + swings, tons of climbing structures and ropes, water play, an underground tunnel, a ‘flower labyrinth’ water maze, easy hiking trails, and more, right in the mountains! 🇨🇭 Plus there’s a restaurant where parents can hang out on the patio while kids play! 🛝🌼  More info HERE. How to get there: There are a few ways to get there, but the most efficient (and what we did) was to start at […]

travel adventures: asheville, north carolina

I’m finally compiling all of my Asheville, North Carolina recommendations into one blog post! We’ve visited Asheville five or six times now since moving to Nashville and it’s by far our favorite drivable destination. It’s such a beautiful part of the country and there’s SO much to do!

Things to Do: Tour The Biltmore Estate – more on this below! 🏰 Visit the North Carolina Arboretum, Bullington Gardens, Asheville Botanical Gardens, and/or WNC Nature Center 🪴🌿 Go rafting down the French Broad River – we did this […]

Spooky Cute Halloween Decor & Partyware

Spooky Cute Halloween Decor & Partyware

Our neighborhood goes all out for Halloween and it’s always so fun to walk around and see how people decorate. We usually host friends for trick or treating, but this year I had the itch to decorate and party plan a little bit more than usual.  To quote Lucy, “We LOVE a good theme.”  I  found some super cute partyware and decor items and then just…kept going! I’m not super into scary and dark Halloween themes and decor, especially with young kids, but it’s been SO fun to find what I’m calling colorful, not scary, “spooky cute” Halloween decor and partyware. There’s actually SO much […]

Crowdsourced Kindergarten Advice + Encouragement

Crowdsourced Kindergarten Advice + Encouragement

My beautiful, sunshine-filled, energetic, sensitive and brave five-year-old daughter is starting kindergarten next week. WHAT?!?! HOW?!?! You’ve probably heard the (paraphrased) Elizabeth Stone quote, but I  feel it so tangibly right now: “[To have a child is to] forever have your heart go walking around outside your body.” I feel like I’m growing up alongside Lucy — the same person I’ve always been, but also a different version of myself now as a mother. The same me, but evolved and refined. continuously learning and growing and adjusting. Gosh – this is a new and very bittersweet season for our family. I know my IG community […]

The Kids School Uniform Guide

The Kids School Uniform Guide

Hi friends! I  can’t believe Lucy will be starting KINDERGARTEN next month! Obviously, there are a lot of big changes and adjustments with that and one of them is…school uniforms! Our school (within the Metro Nashville Public School system) follows ‘Standard Student Attire’ (SSA). It sounds like every school is a little different, but basically, at her school, she needs to wear a solid-colored top with a collar and khaki, black, or navy bottoms. She CAN also wear dresses, whether that’s a collared solid dress or a jumper with a collared shirt underneath. It sounds like kids can layer sweatshirts and sweaters over their collared […]
