Charlie’s Big Girl Room Reveal

August 6, 2018

When Charlie hit the two and a half mark, she started sleep regressing. We have no idea why. She just decided that sleep wasn’t going to be her thing anymore. Up until that point, she hadn’t been in her own big girl room. (Who’s been around since this room reveal or this one?!) She was still in a crib, because she truly did not seem ready for a bed. She is my wild child, and needed the confinement of the…

The Four Elements To A Happy Back Yard

July 28, 2018

One thing I never knew how much I would miss when it was gone was a good back yard. In Napa, we were in a small apartment with no yard for six months and it was rough! I love having a yard for so many reasons. The kids have a space to play, and we all have a space to enjoy the outdoors comfortably! We have out-of-town guests this weekend, so the back yard has been fully utilized the last…

How To Make A Small Apartment Patio A Cozy Place To Entertain

November 17, 2017

This post was sponsored by Jasco via Acorn Influence. All opinions are mine. As most of you know, we moved into an apartment this summer. Less space has definitely been an adjustment.

How To Create The Perfect Gender Neutral Nursery

October 3, 2017

Fact: I’m obsessed with all things colorless. My husband says my house is fifty shades of beige. But here’s the thing, I love it. Neutral never feels like an over-commitment to any particular color scheme, and it always feels fresh, clean, and relaxing. The most serene place in my home is always the bedrooms. I have found some really great decor pieces over the years and I love growing that scheme. Right now, we are sharing a room with the…

A Monochrome Kid’s Room with Delta Children

August 21, 2017

Monochrome kids rooms are really popular right now. They are modern and clean and classy. When we downsized to our apartment, it was important to me that Grayson keep his own space. Tyler and I are only in our room to sleep, and both babies are too young to care about sharing rooms, so we aren’t picky with where we ended up. However, Grayson is at an age where he values privacy and independence. A lot. He also has quite…

What Every Mom Needs To Know About Summer Camp

July 12, 2017

This post is sponsored by The Motherhood and Mouse and Magpie. All opinions are mine.  Grayson, my oldest, just returned a few days ago from his first experience at sleep-away summer camp. He was gone for a whole week, y’all! He’s been dying to go ever since he was much younger and watched TV shows and movies about camp. He’s always been quite the independent kid and never afraid to venture out for new experiences. (Sounds like someone else I…

The Lazy Girl’s Guide To Decorating With Garden Lights

June 16, 2017

This post was sponsored by Jasco via Acorn Influence. All opinions are mine. Summer nights are upon us, y’all! Probably my favorite part about this season in California is the cool evenings outside. We are actually in a heat wave right now that is driving me to insanity, but the saving grace is how nice it gets at night. The house we are currently renting has a perfect space for lounging, so I recently added a patio set. The only…

Art Imitating Life + Our Life in Seven Words

May 30, 2017

Almost two months ago we moved our family from the East Coast to the West Coast. Tyler accepted an opportunity in California that would accelerate his career and we made the bold decision to jump of the cliff. (How do you know if your wings work if you don’t jump out of the tree, right?) Before we left, my friend and brilliant artist, Hannah Crosby, offered to make me a custom painting that would grace our new space in California,…
