# Together We Mother: How My Marriage Has Changed Since Having Kids

03.23.17

together we mother

I’m not even sure how I can tackle this without writing an short novel, but I’m going to give it a go. First, you should know that we had a bit of a whirlwind start. We met, fell in love, got engaged, and got pregnant with Edith, and then married within the first two years of knowing each other. I wouldn’t have it any other way but I’m not sure it’s something I would recommend…  Read More

Sunday Morning Breakfast With Kite Hill

sunday breakfast with Kite Hill

Sundays around here are my favorite. Saturdays usually have us running all over the city for ballet class, playdates, birthday parties, etc.. so we really relish Sunday as our time to just relax at home and take it easy. We usually pick up some bagels, stay in in our PJs all morning long, and try to just focus on being present for each other. This week we switched out our regular cream cheese for Kite Hill, an almond milk plant based alternative and it was a big hit for everyone. Click through to see more pictures and a few yummy bagel recipes.

FRIDAY FIVE

03.17.17

friday five

Oh hey guys! Happy Friday! I feel like things are moving a million miles a minute over here which is great and crazy all at the same time, do you know what I mean? Anyways, I’m ready for the weekend. The forecast is calling for snow and at this point I’m completely over it and trying to convince Aaron to move us to some remote island where I never have to see snow again. So I have zero plans but to stay inside and put the final touches on our trip to Disney! Are there any Disney tips I should know before we go?

Also, I thought I’d try this new thing called Friday Five where I share five things on my mind with you. Maybe it’ll be five of my favorite shoes right now or five articles I’m reading or maybe just five completely random things, but you can always count on it being five. 🙂 So here we go!

Yesterday so many of you commented on my Instagram Stories when I was on my way to the gym at 6:30am saying “wow! that’s early!” and you know what, it really is. And if you know me, you know I like to sleep and need a lot of help getting out of bed in the morning. Besides having my clothes already laid out and ready to go, another thing I do to keep me from falling back asleep is I throw in my headphones before I get out of bed. And in case you want to know what gets my ass out of bed…now you know. 🙂

Five Songs I Play To Get Me Out Of Bed In the Morning 

  1. Ants Marching
  2. Stay
  3. Shake it Off
  4. Everything in it’s Right Place
  5. Green Light

Have a great weekend guys!

My Favorite Picks For Spring

03.14.17

spring favorites

Today NYC is smack in the middle of Winter Storm Stella and I’m justing sitting here looking at pictures from last spring (this was my favorite day ever) and wishing warmer weather would come our way. I’ve been staring at my big puffer coat for far too long and my feet could use a break from wearing boots the past five or so months straight.

In the meantime, I’m dreaming of pastel neutrals and easy mix and match pieces I can wear as more transitional pieces from Spring to Summer and maybe even fall. I just bought these overalls for our upcoming Disney trip in two week because I know I will get my money’s worth and live in them pretty much every day this Spring. I also can’t wait to trade in my ugly yet practical puffer coat for this chic and simple trench that is under $50!!.

Do you have a favorite Spring wardrobe staple that you look forward to pulling out of the closet at the end of every winter?

Graphic Tee | Leather Tote | Pastel Mules | Pretty Midi Skirt | Statement Sleeve Blouse | Embroidered Jeans | Boyfriend Overalls | Transitional Chambray Dress | Trench Coat

Where Should I Go Next?

03.07.17

After coming home from Mexico, I officially have the travel bug. I feel so privileged have gone to both Paris and Mexico in the past six months and it feels like my eyes have just been opened and my heart has become addicted to meeting new people and trying to live like the locals do.
