Just a few more weeks left in 2018, and its already got me thinking about a few goals for the New Year. Typically, I’m not one for resolutions, but the past few years I’ve taken a liking to setting intentions for the upcoming year- activities I can add to my routine; habits I can incorporate into my daily life; ways to make time for me over the next twelve months.Read More
Hi, friends! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here- the holidays have been a bit crazier than usual! But I’m back with my final gift guide. This one’s for the littles- a mix of trinkets, stocking stuffers and a few bigger ticket items for both girls and boys.Read More
December is just around the corner, and that means we're ready for all the holiday cheers.
Typically, we host an annual Christmas party with our nearest and dearest. Most of the time, we stick to a beverage menu consisting heavily of reds- you can find my comprehensive list of reds for every budget here. But this year I wanted to spruce it up with a few seasonal cocktails from our local favorite, Lugano Wine Bar & Salumeria.Read More
Okay, ladies. This next list is all about us.
And, if I’m being honest, this gift guide is pretty much my own personalized wish list- peppered with some of the very best gifts I’ve ever received myself- like this personalized mama necklace. My sister got me a similar one with Madeline’s name on it for my baby shower some years back, and I literally never take it off. This “mama” version would be great for an expecting friend, or for a special mom in your life.Read More
Happy Friday, kids.
Today I’m sharing my second gift guide of the season- this one with my picks under $50- perfect for Secret Santa, White Elephant exchanges, and even just a holiday treat for yourself.Read More
Yesterday hit “send” on our annual Christmas party invite, and it instantly gave me all the festive feels.
Every year we throw a little get together with close family and friends, and sending off our invite always gets me right into the spirit of things. I always opt for a Paperless Post invite- they’re super easy to use and their designs range from classically pretty to fun and kitschy. And I love their collaborations with designers like Rifle Paper and Anthropologie.Read More
Ever since becoming a mom I’ve found that I need to pay more and more attention to my skin. Part of it might just be that- sigh- no one is getting younger around here. But a large part is the everyday stressors: like lack of sleep, work, the changing seasons and, if we’re being honest some emotional stress that take its toll- leaving my skin dry and in need of a little recharge.Read More
It’s official, kids: the holidays are upon us.
Whether you delve head first into Christmas as soon as the clock strikes November, or if you like to take your time and give Thanksgiving its moment- It. Is. Happening!Read More
A few weeks ago Maddie and I teamed up with one of our favorite local mompreneurs, Jasmine of MerriMane, to share some of our local spots in downtown greenwich. MerriMane has been a favorite of ours since she launched just a few months ago- her sweet little fleeces the perfect combination of fashion and function for littles- so when she asked me to launch her “City Guide” series I couldn’t wait to show her around town.Read More
This past weekend was a long one- four days of family, friends and food to celebrate my baby sister tying the knot. It made me realize how lucky I am to have such a great tribe to call my own. It also made realize that I’m no spring chicken- and I’m still recovering from going non-stop for almost a week.Read More
Last weekend we packed up the truck and headed to Rhode Island- to the sweet little Quonset Hut run by the Moore family.Read More
This past week was a great one.
Maddie was happy and healthy and back to school. We returned home from a family trip, and I’m currently packing our little family up for another one. I shared some thoughts on why I started this blog: both here and on my Instagram.
And I was touched by how many messages I received- that so many of you are going through the same journey; that most of you didn’t realize this was our story.Read More
Hey, kids! J.Crew is having another sale- and there are some great coats included in it. Just in time for these lower Connecticut temps.Read More
Happy Monday, kids.
I fully intended to have a fresh post up for you this morning, but our weekend away got the best of me. If you follow along on Instagram, you likely saw some snaps of our two nights in Tiverton, Rhode Island. Its just about three hours away from home in Connecticut- making it a pretty doable trip with the family- including Georgia. And we had the most beautiful couple days a few some close friends and our little family.Read More
