DIY Diaper Wreath

At my baby shower a few years I received lots of adorable gifts. But one of the most memorable gifts I received was a homemade diaper cake. Have you seen those before? Mine was absolutely adorable. It was three “tiers” and just loaded with adorable goodies for the baby: socks, pacifiers, shoes, a comb, thermometer, […]

The Perfection of Imperfection

When I was pregnant with my first child I had plans. I had an image in my head of what life would look like, feel like…be. Before me lay a clean, white, crisp paper. Pristine and perfect, glimmering in my mind like an attainable goal. But here’s the thing about motherhood. About life…it’s messy. Really […]

It’s All About the Curls

Before having kids, I was a hairstylist. I enjoyed helping people transform their look and feel confident. Even though I no longer work in a salon, I love getting the chance to style a friend’s hair for a special occasion. I’m often asked how I curl my hair. There’s not a standard answer. Everyone has different hair […]

Why I Want My Husband to Start Dating Again

I have the best husband. He is loving, supportive, honest (sometimes brutally) and devoted. He works hard for our family day in and day out, while knowing that when his ‘workday’ is done… his ‘work’ is NOT done. Being parents to three kids two and under is something that we never expected. After battling with infertility, […]

25 {Super Fun!} Stocking Stuffers

I must admit that I am one of those people for whom holiday shopping is pretty stressful. All three of my kids are now old enough to tell me what they want for Christmas, which is nice, but it feels like a part-time job trying to manage the lists. Not to mention trying to figure […]
