Home Reno: A Recap and The Reveal


I know it’s been SUCH a long time since I’ve written about our¬†Home Reno¬†project – an undertaking that we went through about a year ago. We actually have been moved back in for about 7 months now, and have been taking our time to settle in and getting to know the place again, and slowing […]

Home Reno: Progress Report


It’s been about a month and a half since my last home renovation progress report and what I’ve noticed is how time can simultaneously go SO QUICKLY and yet SO SLOWLY. I can’t believe how much can be built in a little more than a month. I cannot believe how quickly homes just….are built from […]

Home Renovation Progress Report


A few months ago, we embarked on a crazy journey to heavily renovate our home. The decision didn’t come lightly – we had considered moving, but I realized that I love my neighborhood too much. I wanted this to be my forever home. So here we are, about a month and a half into it, […]

Home Renovation: Progress Report


So we haven’t officially broken ground yet, but our home renovation project is in full swing over here.

Making Our House A Home

Happy New Year! Did you guys go out to celebrate the coming of 2016? In true homebody, I’m-a-parent-i-need-sleep fashion, we ushered in the new year trying to keep our eyes open, watching a (terrible) movie at home. We almost didn’t make it to midnight; this holiday season has been pretty tiring, so we were more […]

Favorite Pins This Week


Totally obsessed with these spaces right now – I am loving how they have completely blank and white walls, and they depend on accessories to bring in fun and color.

My Favorite Moments


  Almost a year and a half ago, I wrote a post about my favorite moment of the day. A lot has changed since then – we’re both older (I’m just more worn out, really, hah) so the rhythm of our day is totally different. She’s now only on 1 nap a day, so our […]

The 100 Day Project & Photoshop Brush Download


A few weeks ago, I came across The 100 Day Project by The Great Discontent – it was a movement for creatives to commit to 100 days of creation. It wasn’t about a finished product, it was more about the goal, the process of trying to improve on something within yourself, or for us moms, […]
