Newborn/Family Photo Shoot

I never got around to having newborn photos taken with my other two children, so I was excited to have the chance to have them done with Audrey. I wanted to make sure Jack, myself and the other two children especially were tied in since they all play a big role in Audrey’s life. Our good […]

Post-baby Stripes

Well, Audrey is two weeks old and we managed to pull off a quick outfit shoot. Let me be honest, as difficult as it can be dressing while pregnant, I think I dislike dressing a postpartum body even more. As eager as I am to get into my normal clothes, I know they aren’t in […]

Audrey Grace: Birth Story

Since having children myself, I have found it fascinating to hear about other birth stories. Every one is different and unique, as is the child that emerges. So should you have an interest, read on to hear about Audrey’s entrance into the world. Before Audrey, I had only ever given birth by being induced. My kids […]

The Littlest Reason for my Absence

As you may have guessed by now (and if you follow along on Instagram you know for sure) that Jack and I welcomed our third child, Audrey Grace, into the world this past Saturday. We are overjoyed with her and adjusting to being a family of 5. Just typing that still intimidates me! I plan […]

High Five for Friday

There may not be a baby just yet, but it was certainly an eventful week in our household nonetheless! After living in apartments and condos (from Hoboken, NJ to State College, PA) for the entirety of our marriage, Jack and I finally closed on our very first home. You have no idea how excited we […]

Bold Baubles

As much as I love my pastels, I’m totally falling for all of the bright, bold shades of jewelry that are available this season. Tassels and beading add great embellishment to many of the pieces which in turn adds to their overall appeal. The details feel fun and refreshing and seem to scream warm weather […]

Soft Grey

You know me and my love for soft shades.  Grey is a favorite neutral of mine and after pairing it with pink, baby blue would come in as a close second. Throwing on a sweater or shrug for chilly spring mornings makes for an easy transition when you need to remove a layer as things […]

Lemon Bars

Yes, lemon foods do make me think of springtime, but this time around I was just running with a craving. I had never made lemon bars before, but now that I have it won’t be the last! Buttery crust, amazing flavor and a crisp sugary top. Perfection in a bar. Oh and the recipe is […]

Let’s Hear it for Leggings

As I was looking back through some of my maternity style, I realized that I haven’t exposed you to one of my most worn items these past few months…leggings. I don’t by any means want you to think that I somehow managed to avoid them through this pregnancy because that wouldn’t be true in the least, […]

High Five for Friday

Another week down my friends! Not much new here other than having a belly that’s slightly larger than last week. My cravings for sweets are just about out of control and I’m really going to have to reign that in….soon. Although you may appreciate the Lemon Bars post that will be forthcoming ;) Anything exciting […]
