Holiday Gift Guide // For Her

November 14, 2017

I can’t believe it’s nearly here! You know what I’m talking about — the most wonderful time of the year! Ya know, Christmas hasn’t always been my favorite holiday (I’m more of a Thanksgiving gal), but having kids has changed me in that way. I absolutely love Christmas because they love it so much. And […]

Fall 2017 Favorites!

October 20, 2017

Fall is by far my most favorite time of year — the leaves are changing colors, the temperature is dropping, and the air is crisp. It’s perfection. One of my favorite things about Fall (besides Pumpkin Spice Lattés) is dressing and accessorizing for the season! But there is SO much more to Fall than clothes […]

Explore Ohio // Put-in-Bay

August 18, 2017

One of the perks of living on the “North Coast” is that we have islands and beaches nearby. For those not located in the Midwest, the “North Coast” is Lake Erie, or whichever of the Great Lakes you happen to find yourself south of. And if you have never actually seen the Great Lakes, you would […]

How To Totally Ruin Pinterest Crafts in 4 Simple Steps //

July 5, 2017

Let me quickly set the stage — Ari wants to do a Fourth of July craft and I want to oblige. I mean, I’m a crafty mom, right? I do a quick pinterest search, locate a ‘firework’ paint craft, and gather our supplies. Easy peasey! Or, it should have been. But guys — here’s the […]

Smoothies, Foodies, and the Vitamix Ascent Series Launch //

March 3, 2017

In my constant search for balance in motherhood (and life) I have made certain concessions for the sake of time. For instance, we often forego eggs, toast, and cereal for breakfast in lieu of something we can take on-the-go — like smoothies. I’m guilty of occasionally using those pre-made frozen smoothie fruit mixes. Yes, I […]

Little Mover, Big Changes // Adjusting To Life With A Spirited Child

January 1, 2017

I’ll be the first to admit it — Our first born, Ari, did little to prepare us for the wild side of parenting. See, he has always been very cautious and mild-mannered. Certainly, our second child would be just as chill, right? Wrong. Oh, so, wrong! Miss Bea is a handful — has been since […]

June 18, 2016

It’s no secret that being a mom to a toddler and a newborn baby is hard work. Now, more than ever, I have to stick to my routine and my plan to make sure our days run as smoothly as possible. For me, that means writing out a schedule each night for the following day. […]

postpartum fitness // wishes + plans

January 17, 2016

I know I’m not postpartum yet, but gosh, I cannot wait to get back to feeling like myself. Don’t get me wrong, I’m giving myself as much time as necessary to heal, postpartum. However, this warmer than usual winter has had me in a bit of a jealous fit from time to time. Especially since […]

Huggies Little Snugglers // Surviving Life With A Newborn

December 13, 2015

With the anticipation of Baby Girl coming in just a few short weeks (wishful thinking, I know), we honestly haven’t done much prepping for her arrival. I learned the hard way the first time around — things don’t go as planned and you actually need very little to take care of a newborn. The one […]

Snack Good. Feel Gooder.

December 5, 2015

Moms. We’re responsible for keeping it all together, so to say. And friends – I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’ve dropped the ball a time or two daily during this pregnancy. I won’t forget important things, like feeding Ari. But… I’ve been known to forget to actually eat for myself. Until it’s too […]
