I caught myself wondering what a wedding registry may look like if it were created specifically with self-isolating/social distancing due to a pandemic in mind. Thus, a blog topic was born! While this list shouldn’t […]

Your Pandemic Inspired Wedding Registry

Well, it’s here. The day I’ve been low-key planning since my baby shower (nope, not kidding) – Layla’s first birthday. I cannot believe our baby girl – no – our toddler girl is one year old. “It seems like only yesterday we were bringing you home from the hospital” sounds so cheesy to say, but […]

Celebrating Layla’s First Birthday

Courtesy of JD Mason via Unsplash Getting to a place where I feel good about my body and general health has been a journey of learning and unlearning – One that I’m still traveling. Teenage Dev, like many others, had zero concept of what being truly healthy was (Dear 16 Year Old Me: That granola […]

What Happened When I Traded In My Weights For A Yoga Mat

MYTH: Us breastfeeding moms are doomed to look like prune witches forever. When I was a teen, like many others at the time, I did everything to my hair that you’re not supposed […]

Your Breasts Deserve Your Best

I would have never classified myself as a shopaholic, because I’ve (for the most part) liked to keep a close eye on my budget. Sounds super responsible, right? Well, yes, but it lead to a bigger problem when it came to my wardrobe, one that I’ve been working on correcting for a little over half […]

How a Capsule Wardrobe Saved My Closet

It’s only practical to know that a lot can happen in a year, but what about in just a few weeks? Four weeks ago, I was on a hike with a fellow photog to practice with a new lens and take in nature. Three weeks ago I was gearing up for wedding season and promoting […]

21 Days of Prayer

Katie Wilson We are about t-minus eight days away from Valentine’s Day. This minor holiday can drudge up major feelings for some of us, but it doesn’t have to be an all-hope-is-lost day!

The Best Movies For Your Valentine’s Night In

I’m not one to overlook an adventure in my own backyard. In fact, I recommend it when you’re in need of a creativity refresh. Last week on Instagram, I posted a photo of a super cute butterfly room with a somewhat ominous caption asking you all to guess where I was adventuring. I even left […]
