My heart is so full after the sweetest weekend with my two boys. I'm feeling spoiled! Mike sent me off to have my nails done on Saturday while he snuck to the store with Charlie to pick up groceries for the most delicious Mother's Day dinner. I'm fairly no frills when it comes to self-care, but … Continue reading first mother’s day.
Oops. It's a Saturday post again, isn't it? Oh well! I was enjoying my post work cocktails too much to muster up the energy to post last night. I made a blueberry simple syrup from Charlie's leftover baby food and mixed that with torn basil, a wedge of lemon, vodka and soda water. It gave … Continue reading the friday post – volume 11
It's been a hectic couple of weeks at our house. Last weekend was full of friends and extra happenings which carried over to this week. There are just phases like that, you know? Weekday grocery runs, broken glasses, morning work events, lizards in the kitchen, diaper issues. I won't go into details, but phew it's … Continue reading make time to go outside.
I like to take a browse through our local thrift stores once a month or so. I always have a little list of things I'm idly on the hunt for - a new chair for the dining room table, a small table to go next to our couch, some summer shorts for Charlie, a browse … Continue reading thrift store toys and cleaning them for your baby.
It's Friday! We've had our dear friends and their little girl in town this week so we've gone over to their Airbnb for dinner one night and had them over to our house for another. It's kind of made the week fly by in a daze of Cuban food, extra glasses of wine and fancy … Continue reading the friday post – volume 10
Is anyone getting tired of hearing about the beach? I really hope not. Each trip just feels so distinct that I have to capture it! The ocean, the air, Charlie, and our experience changes every time. This Saturday the water was crystal clear and calm. The sun shone high and bright. Charlie had just woken … Continue reading the most beautiful beach day.
We've been reading to Charlie since nearly day 1. But with a 6 month old, it's still more about what we like to read to Charlie rather than what Charlie's really into. It's not like he can specifically ask for one book over another yet. He definitely loves books already though, so I think it's good … Continue reading our favorite baby books at 6 months.
I totally jumped the gun yesterday morning and ripped off my April calendar at school. Technically, May doesn't come until next Tuesday, but I don't care gosh darn it! I'm ready to see the light at the end of the tunnel - aka SUMMER BREAK! I just needed to see that little square that says … Continue reading the friday post – volume 9
In the spirit of celebrating life's simple joys, you'll find a new series here every now and then. Every day, we are left with the vast responsibility of our feelings - both good and bad, positive and negative. I'm hoping this series will help bring focus to the small, simple things that bring joy and happiness to … Continue reading simple joys: reading in bed
It was 4pm and it felt like we hadn't done a thing all day. Charlie took a half hour long afternoon nap, then an extra half hour nap in my arms after that, and another half hour after that when I finally set him back down in his crib, shaking out the pins and needles in … Continue reading a slow sunday.
