the story of you

Thursday, September 14, 2017


I finally took some time to put together a baby book for Everett (I mean, he is only going to turn two this December). I am so, so glad that I finally did. I am gushing over this book from Artifact Uprising, The Story of You. It is really so much more than just your ordinary baby book; it is something that I will truly cherish forever. The book is bound in fabric and foiled with the words "Here begins the story of you". It comes with a special pen, adhesives and a set of photos to use throughout. I felt such a strong connection to the charming prompts throughout the book and simple, clean layout. It is beautiful in every way. I have everything neatly tucked away in here with little notes I want to remember, letters for him to read when he's older, hospital bracelets, itty bitty footprints and of course, so many photos.

I am just soaking up this porch you guys. I mean, it was a huge selling point for us when we bought this little craftsman and I knew that we would love it, but even I am surprised by how much we use it. We sit out here every single day. No matter how crazy life gets, this simple and sweet retreat is always waiting for us. Whether it's a quick swing before bed time, adult beverages after bed time, an after-walk popsicle or a few minutes of alone time with a coffee and a good book. We have been living on this porch this summer.

Today I am so delighted to share that our kitchen renovation is complete! Well, roughly 95% complete because isn't that just the way it usually goes? I am going to give you a few sneak peeks today, which is the perfect time to announce my new partnership with Cameron's Coffee! My love of coffee is nothing new, but collaborating with a Midwest-based coffee company for the next year is a dream. Not only am I passionate about always smooth, never bitter coffee, but I am a huge advocate for brewing my own quality coffee at home, which is Cameron's specialty.

This guy is just so excited to check out every nook and cranny of our new house. He has to open every door, find every closet and test out the porch swing just about every day. Watching him explore his new world is such a joy. And while we still miss our old home tremendously, I can already envision our babies growing into young children here and bringing new babies home to this house, fresh from the hospital.



summer bucket list

Saturday, April 29, 2017


With warmer months (and a couple of highly anticipated vacations) around the corner, we are prepping for the sunnier days ahead by stocking up on swimsuits, sunnies, hats and of course, plenty of sunscreen. I don't ever want our fun in the sun to be limited by worries of sunburn, so we rely on Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection Sensitive Skin Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF 50 because it is formulated with oat to help lock in moisture and soothe babies' delicate skin, while zinc oxide provides broad spectrum coverage to protect their sweet skin from the sun. Not to mention it is also hypoallergenic, tear-free, non-greasy and proven to be as gentle as water. And most importantly, the kids love it! You can find it at WalMart.
