Restful Ritual

January 20, 2015

These little souls, they hold the entire world, unbridled and unharnessed within the chambers of their hearts. Children are as children do. To really understand the napping situation, you have to know our family, and even then it’s feels just a bit over the top and unreal, even to me. By nature, Theo and Beau […]

Theo, Beau and Evangeline: A Naptime Trifecta

January 8, 2015

There are fairly few things that contribute to the physical wellness of a child as much as sleep and nutrition do. In our home, and I’m sure in the homes of many toddlers and preschoolers, nap time (clearly) is a sacred ritual. I’ve always been pretty strict about maintaining the consistency and rituals of our […]

Restart, Refresh, Anew

January 2, 2015

There’s a clarity that comes with the first of a brand new, fresh year. I, for one, have been desperate for a little honing in on what is truly the most important things. It’s January second, and now that the fluff has dissipated from the holidays I’ve been able to really focus solely on my […]

International, Baby

November 9, 2014

Evvie and I got back late last night from a very quick and amazing trip to Toronto. I had been anticipating this trip for a couple of weeks, Justin and I even went to San Francisco to order Evvie a rush passport just so we’d be able to travel together in time. I was fairly […]

One Year with Theo

November 7, 2014

It’s been one year since we brought Theo home. Zoe and I drove to the shelter to collect him, just the two of us. She had been asking incessantly for a puppy for as long as she could verbalize it. The entire 20 minute ride from our house to the vet, she squealed in delight […]

Unexpected Connections

November 3, 2014

It feels like my family’s lives have been through constant and aggressive change for a little over a year now since we moved from New York City to California. The shift from one coast to the other couldn’t have been more extreme in every way, but we had each other throughout the entire process, physically […]

Momma Loves

October 17, 2014

This week seems to only be getting harder with little Beau and his separation emotional turmoil over baby Evvie joining our family, so I’ve been spending as much one-on-one time as I possibly can with him. That means having as many adults in our home as we can get at this point, and I’m just […]

Theo and Beau Welcome Evangeline

September 24, 2014

I’ve been wanting to share with you the day that we brought Evvie home, but it’s been a little raw for me up until recently. That day was so hectic, hardly the kind of serene and sweet “coming home” celebration we had hoped for, but it was lovely all the same. I didn’t get discharged […]

Momma Loves: New Style Series

August 14, 2014

So shopping is a thing for me. It’s probably pretty evident that I enjoy looking around for different, wonderful things for my kids and my home. It’s a bit of a creative outlet for me-not the spending part, but the actual searching and finding beautiful and unique things for my children to wear and do […]
