How I Restored My Hair After Having A Baby

I have seen so much progress in my hair over the past year, that I wanted to share how I restored my hair after having a baby and a bit of my hair care journey. My locks have been through so much having a baby, and I remember a year ago feeling so down, frustrated, […]

Our Piper Cub

We waited until Piper was born to share with our friends and family what her name was. When we announced to my family that her name was “Piper,” one of the first things my Dad said “Our little Piper Cub.” I thought, “Our little Piper what??” So I learned then and there that there is […]

What to Pack For a Day at the Beach With a Toddler

It’s not summer to me until we’ve been to the beach. Being by the water has always been so restful and healing for my soul. The older I get, the more of a beach gal I seem to become. I’m happy to report that Piper shares my love of the water and has loved the […]

10 Outdoor Summer Activities for Toddlers

With summer in full force, I’ve compiled a list of our favorite 10 outdoor summer activities for toddlers. If we stay inside too much, both Piper and I will go a little stir crazy. Just getting outside for an hour makes the biggest difference in our day. This has also made me realize how essential […]

First Ice Cream Cone

While we were at the beach last week we took Piper our for her very first ice cream cone. This girl loves breads, muffins, etc. but we don’t do a lot of desserts. When she had cake at her first birthday party, she looked confused and then spit it out, so I wasn’t sure how […]

Ode to the iPhone on Its 10th Anniversary

Today is the 10th anniversary of the release of the first iPhone. I didn’t get an iPhone when it came out back in 2007. In fact I used to really hate cell phones. I was hesitant to get a phone at all, and when I finally got a flip phone I often left it at…

Breastfeeding: Latching On and Letting Go

This is a different post than my usual because it is very personal. Heck, it includes a photo of me breastfeeding so this is clearly not a post about how I made blackberry waffles with Siracha-maple syrup. Here, today, I…

Piper at 18 Months

How is this girl already 18 months old!? It’s been a  year in a half with her, but it already feels like a lifetime. What was life before her? She is such a light, and keeps us laughing all day long. I will say though….18 months has been tough. At times it feels like pure.total.chaos. […]

How Motherhood Taught Me I’m Loved

So, I’m changing it up a little bit this Mother’s Day. Instead of posting perfect pictures of my breakfast in bed prepared perfectly imperfect by my 18 month old and her dad, I’m sharing the real, raw, vulnerable side. The side that every one tries to sweep under the rug, or tuck away in those […]

Home is Where the Pants Aren’t

I thought I would share a few snapshots from a just a regular ol’ morning at home. Mom with her coffee, Piper with her milk…and probably sans pants because who needs those anyway!? Not this 18 month old. This girl …. she is giving us a run for our money lately. But it’s moments like […]

Easter in Pictures

I hope you had a wonderful Easter! I look forward to this weekend every year, and the joy and hope that it brings. It’s funny how having a baby makes you look at things, like holidays, a lot differently. I found myself super conflicted over the easter bunny this year, and we ended up not […]

What Every New Mom Really Needs

I’ve teamed up with my friends over at Terminix today to talk about motherhood, specifically those days and weeks right after baby is born. It’s something that I don’t think gets talked about enough, which in turn can leave many moms feeling down, lonely, and overwhelmed. Fortunately, I had a really lovely postpartum recovery period with Piper […]

Kid’s Clothing || Our Favorite Places to Shop

Dressing Piper has been so very fun from the beginning. I always envisioned having boys (not sure why??), so I was truly surprised when we found out we were having a girl. Once we found out though, I began looking and browsing baby girl clothing for days and have never looked back. So I wanted […]

Mama + Me: Welcome, Spring!

This is by far one of my favorite outfits I have put Piper in. She just kills me in that little bonnet, polka dotted tights, and blue dress. We took these pictures on a chilly morning with my gal pal and photography genius, Jessi Nichols. I’m still not totally sure I trust Spring as to […]

Piper at 15 Months

It’s amazing how much Piper has grown and changed in just the last few months. Her vocabulary has expanded tremendously, and she is communicating more and more. She signs milk, all done, please, dog, and more. She says mama, dada, thank you, papa, naenae (aka “grandma”), ball, baby, night night, hi, bye, dog, uh-oh and […]

Making Time For Yourself

One thing that I have found to be essential during this season of life, and this season of the year, is finding little ways to make time for myself. Before we started growing our family, I use to talk and dream of picking up and heading out west to experience another part of the country […]

Cruising Through Winter

Hat: Anthropologie, old (similar here) | Coat: H&M (similar) | Stroller: Bugaboo As much as I love the cold weather and a cozy fire, the winter months can take a toll on this mama. I’m a gal who needs her daily dose of sunshine to make it through the day. The colder it gets, the […]

Piper’s First Birthday

One thing I do not think I will ever master is baking cakes. I can’t tell you how many cakes I have tried to make, and how many of them have turned out bad. Okay I can… all of them! The taste of this was wasn’t terrible, but of course I underestimated the amount of […]

My Baby is One!

How is our little nugget one already!? She has grown and changed so much in the past year, and I have loved looking back on all of her teeny tiny baby pictures this past week. I have been all kinds of emotional (more so than usual), and find myself thinking about Piper’s delivery (which you […]

Our Bedtime Routine

Piper has always been a great sleeper. She slept through the night from about 2 months, and just woke up in the middle of the night for the first time at 11 months when she was sick. While she sleeps through the night great, the hard part has always been getting her to fall asleep. Seriously, that […]

It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Halloween

I can hardly believe it is already October! There is a quote I always think of around this time of year: “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall,” and man is it true. You can feel it in the air. It’s like I breathe in hope every time I breathe […]

Raising a Healthy Eater

Man, oh man, there is so much I can say about this topic of “raising a healthy eater,” but I will try and spare you ;). To summarize, I am a firm believer in being the mom that bakes homemade quinoa granola bars and brings them along to the park. I am also a firm […]

Reading Time

One thing we have been trying to do more of is reading with P. It’s so good for their development, and she loves our reading time so much! I love sneaking in on Scofield reading to her, using all kinds of voice inflections and making her giggle like only a daddy can. It’s my favorite. It’s […]

Burt’s Bees Baby

I can hardly believe we are approaching Piper’s second fall season! What!? … In just a short months she will be one. Last fall, she was a little newbie to the world, sleeping the day away and winning over our hearts with her newborn coos. I remember then, a cozy little pink burt’s bees onesie […]

Diaper Bag Essentials for a Day at the Pool

We have absolutely loved taking Piper to the pool this summer. Our goal is to soak up these next couple warm months and milk the pool for all it’s worth. The first time Piper got in the water she laughed, and splashed her face, and then laughed some more. We had to hang on tight […]

Favorite Hair Bows for Baby

When I first found out I was pregnant, I was convinced we were having a boy. So much so that I only searched online for baby boy clothes and nursery decor, ha ha. When we found out we were having a girl, I was shocked, and it honestly took me a few days to come around. Now […]

Love, a “Mom of All…”

Girl MomI remember being pregnant with our fourth daughter and walking the streets of a quaint beach town two years ago with the rest of our crew in tow. Oh, my poor husband. “God bless you,” they’d say, extending a glance that bled commiseration and pity. Even before she entered the world, our precious fourth daughter was drawing…

Downtown Stroll

Since having Piper, one of our favorite things to do as a family is to strap her in the stroller and explore downtown. There are so many fun restaurants, coffee shops, and parks to visit (see some of my favorite spots here). Piper absolutely loves it too! It’s so fun to watch her observe and […]
