Easter is a little less than a month away, and it’s got me thinking about all things pink and purple and bunny and chick. Over the past few years it’s become one of our very favorite holidays to celebrate as a family, and we always have the best time collecting little trinkets for MM to open on Sunday morning- a mixture of candies, stuffed animal, tiny toys and trinkets.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
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

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
It’s been a rainy week so far in Connecticut. Making me crave lazy days by the fire; cozied up in our favorite blankets in our most festive seasonal pajamas. We’ve been quite dedicated to holiday pajamas since MM arrived- matching Christmas sets being our most favorite.Read More
Since MM was an itty bitty newborn, we've always taken a few minutes before bed time to read stories to our girl. Over the past year we have acquired a few favorites- Giraffes Can't Dance, Llama Llama Red Pajama, I Love You Stinky Face- children's books that have now become some of my most loved stories. And since day one, our favorite has been an adorable book about a little one's worries called No Matter What- a sweet story that I can now recite blindfolded.Read More
As promised: Mom Approved Holiday Gift Guide for Boys. As a girl mom, this one required a little more legwork- polling a few of the little fellows in our life. I included the usual suspects: legos, firetrucks, tools and super heroes. As well as a few of the less obvious gifts that I've seen win over some major hearts: teepees and headdresses, anyone?Read More
It's November 1st, which means the holidays are officially right around the corner. This leaves us a little less than two months to check off all the good boys and girls off our shopping lists. The last few months of the year are always some of my favorites- bringing us holiday music, peppermint lattes, twinkling lights and all things red and green. But as the year comes to a close, things can also get a little hectic- as holiday visitors, parties and recitals can take over our already busy schedules, making it difficult to find time to pick the perfect present for each and every loved one. So in order to take the guesswork out of holiday shopping, I've rounded up my favorite gifts for girls: baby and toddler.Read More
Yes, I know: it's not yet Halloween and I'm posting pics all red and green. But the most wonderful time of year is so close I can taste it; and it's never too early to invest in a little holiday cheer. Particularly when it's spotted on adorable baby bums. And I fell so in love with these itty bitty bloomers from Monogram Mary that I just couldn't wait to share. They're the perfect addition to any festive dress- each one customized to suit your fancy. From whimsical to classic, she creates the perfect accent for any occasion.Read More
