When you first get married and are still in the “honeymoon phase” it is really easy to date your spouse. It’s just the two of you, so you can go wherever you want, whenever you want. And that’s great! There is nothing wrong with that. But then you have kids. When you have kids, it can be really hard to get out of the house for a date. You have to think about your baby now too. But getting out, just the two of you, is even more important now than ever!READ MORE
Happy Monday! I was able to get in a good nap yesterday, so I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and ready to start my week! (Sunday’s are the only day I am able to relax enough to actually take a nap when my son naps, and I look forward to it all week! Haha). We’ve been checking off items from our fall bucket list! Last week we went to the pumpkin patch and I got some adorable pictures of my son NOT looking at the camera because he was too excited to stop for pictures! But that’s ok, I’m glad he had fun!

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I recently did a 10 day fall wardrobe challenge. I mentioned in my last post that I was not going to be posting about my fall capsule wardrobe. I am still doing one this fall, but I was much more lenient about the typical capsule “rules”.
Anyway, I spontaneously decided to join Carolyn, from UnFancy, in her 10 day wardrobe remix challenge. Basically, you choose 10 items that you will make 10 different outfits from over the course of 10 days. I saw this and thoughtREAD MORE
It is officially fall and our mornings have had a little bit of a chill lately! I have even been enjoying a cup of hot chocolate in the evenings after my son goes to bed. However, it is still pretty hot outside during the day (like still in the mid 90s!). I finally put together my fall capsule wardrobe, but decided not to post about it this time. I was not as strict with the usual capsule “rules” and I actually created a two part capsule; the first part for this time of year when it’s fall but its still really hot out (think tee shirts, shorts, and sandals still), and the second part includes more sweaters and cardigans that I can wear once it cools down.READ MORE
Happy first day of fall! I am so ready for the weather to finally begin cooling down! Fall is my favorite season for many reasons…scarves, hot chocolate, apple flavored everything, scarves, cooler weather, have I mentioned scarves yet? 😉
This fall will be my son’s second time experiencing the season (although last year he was pretty little still). There are so many things that I am so excited for him to experience this fall. So, I thought it would be fun to share some things that are on our fall bucket list for this year!READ MORE
I’ve been struggling lately with feeling like myself while trying to balance everything in my life right now. It is especially difficult when a screaming toddler wakes me up in the morning. He used to sleep in more before, but lately he has been waking up very early and he cries the second he wakes up for me to go get him. Waking up to that every morning was wearing me out emotionally.
I am an introvert, so I have noticed that I need some time to myself to “recharge”. With my son waking me up in the mornings, I was no longer getting very much time to myself.READ MORE
Happy Monday! I totally took a break from blogging last week because I have been extremely busy with my photography business and with launching the fall collection for my etsy shop! But, before I jump into all things fall here on the blog, I wanted to share my simple summer go to outfit!READ MORE
We have been having some very hot days here lately (100+ degrees)! I have always been an accessories girl, but summer is always challenging to me because I do not want anything extra that will make the high temperatures any more uncomfortable. I have always struggled with finding that perfect item to keep my accessory loving self happy without overheating.
So, if you are an accessory loving girl like me and you struggle with finding the perfect accessory to wear that won’t make you more uncomfortable in the summer heat, your search has ended! I have gathered up my favorites to share with you!
Summer is coming to an end soon. This morning, the air was slightly cool right before the sun came up and it hit 100 degrees. It reminded me that soon we would be bundling up as the summer ends and fall begins.
This summer, I attempted to get my 17 month old and I on somewhat of a schedule, but, it is summer after all, so it was not very successful. It is my goal to homeschool my son when he is school aged, so in an effort to begin as I mean to go, I have already begun doing “preschool” type material with him. I want him to be used to having school time so that when he is old enough to actually begin doing school, it will not be completely foreign to him. Plus, I am always more productive (especially being a stay-at-home mom) when I have a schedule to follow.READ MORE
Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe it is already August!? I was sure that I just turned the calendar to July only a few days ago, and now it’s already August!
Well, today, I am sharing another outfit with you all! The weather has been ridiculously high lately (I’m talking over 105, ALL WEEK!), so I have had fall on my mind a lot! I usually wait until it is closer to the end of my third month to go through my clothes for my next capsule wardrobe, but with my desire to wish fall upon us, I went through them in the middle of July and began brainstorming what items I might want to add to my wardrobe!
