I recently was asked to share “more transparency as to how we actually run the blog,” since it was hard to imagine how I could do so with little ones. So how about an update on how we are keeping things running here? The short answer I give to these kinds of questions is usually “well I don’t sleep a whole ton.” But as you can guess there is much more to it than that, so I will go a little deeper today. I know time management and balance are things I am always learning, so this topic can hopefully help some of you also trying to juggle multiple jobs or situations in your life.
Veronica turned six this past week and before we headed to Tennessee we had a little birthday celebration with her aunts and uncles, nanna and papa, and a few of her little friends. Veronica has always been our very happy, imaginative, colorful, and bright little wildflower so it came to no surprise she wanted a “rainbow unicorn mermaid” birthday.

I am trying to only buy things I know I will use more several times, and that can be used for multiple purposes. Here are a few more fun ideas to mix and match for Easter:
The best weather of the year decided to show up this past weekend, and it leaves me hopeful it will stick around for Easter. We have been taking advantage of the patio (and pre-bug season) as much as possible with family and friends, and even week night dinners.
I actually don’t wear lipstick day to day since it prevents me from smooching my kids whenever I want. However, I’ve always loved the ease of mascara and lipstick to go for Sundays or nights out. Found a few colors too good not to share that will put a little extra pep in your step.
Planters and pots are something I am always on the lookout for because well….I have a plant hoarding problem. I never can pass up a good deal on greenery so the pots and planters have my full attention year round. It can be overwhelming to know what to use indoors or out, so here is a round up planters as well as some greenery you can pair them with!
I am most often in sneakers chasing my boys, but if it’s a special occasion or a date with Gabe, I’ll brave the heel. ONLY if they are actually a comfortable pair however. Here are two looks over the weekend with the same top on repeat! READ MORE
Let’s talk swimsuits. (When I was expecting Azelie last summer, wearing Rey Swimwear, GigiPip Hat) Okay ladies. I have come to accept that I will never enjoy swimsuit shopping in stores. Surely Continue Reading →
