Misc, Mom Life, Pregnancy

Cold Socks // When I was pregnant with Olivia my feet swell up and looked like pillows attached to the bottom of my cankles.  Looking at them wasn’t pleasant, and walking around on them (in anything other than flip flops) was less than joyful.  These chilled socks are perfect for swollen feet, and even pretty […]

Travel // Flying Solo with Baby, 10 Months

Misc, Travel

When I wrote this post after flying with Livy at 3 + 4 months, I was confident…and naive.  At 3 months she was just starting to grow into her personality, giggling here and there, a bit of squirming, but overall a great sleeper and a pretty pleasant travel buddy.  With all of the planning and […]

Lifestyle // Friday Favorites : Home Decor

Misc

As we move from city to city, (and foreign country!) we are forced to continuously evolve the style of our home decor to fit our new home.  When we moved to Germany we had pictured a timber framed rustic house, with light wood and traditional German style.  What we ended up with, was a flat […]

Always Us

Misc

When we received orders for our first international PCS (permanent change of station) to live in Germany, our minds were racing with possibilities of new adventures, romantic getaways, spontaneous weekends, and enjoying a little après-ski on some of the world’s most beautiful slopes.  At that moment what we didn’t know, was that our first child, […]

Mom Life

So ya’ll know my love for subscription boxes runs deep.  There’s definitely a part of me that just loves getting surprise mail, but the biggest reason why I love boxes like PopSugar Must Have is that I’m introduced to new brands and products that I maybe otherwise wouldn’t have tried.  So let’s take it wayyyyy […]

Lifestyle // Subscription Review : Le Tote


Mom Life, Pregnancy

*Scroll through to the bottom to try LeTote for FREE! Self admittedly, I used to have a major obsession with subscription boxes.  It started small with Birchbox, and straight up exploded with PopSugar MustHave.  I dabbled in StitchFix, but absolutely loved LeTote.  With the business of moving coupled with preparing for Olivia, I sadly paused my […]

Natural Living // Why Essential Oils Are Magical


Mom Life

When I first heard all about essential oils, I called BS.  It didn’t make sense to me that oils could relieve headaches, or help you sleep, and honestly I rolled my eyes whenever I saw those posts on Instagram and Pinterest. For Christmas a few years back, my Mom bought me a starter kit* of […]

Travel // Paris is Always a Good Idea


Europe, France, Travel

It should be no surprise that Paris is one of my favorite cities, but when my Mom planned Spring Break trips for us to the city of lights during elementary and middle school, I have to admit, I was less than amused.  My friends were all going to Florida, or Myrtle Beach, and Europe just […]

Mom Life // New Mama Must-Haves


Mom Life, Pregnancy

Motherhood is 10% luck and 90% trial and error.  It seems like every blog you read, and every Mom you talk to will have advice (solicited, or otherwise!) on the products they loved and hated, and what did and did not work for them.  Even though I’m about to be one of those Mommy Bloggers, […]
