welcome to my blog

Do you remember getting a summer reading list in elementary and middle school? Or maybe it was just a form for you to keep track of all the books you read over the summer, that a parent would sign off on, for a prize when you went back to school?  I missed that. Then I […]

My Must Reads of 2021

This was it – The big trip. I feel like I’ve been teasing everyone, including myself, with this vacation forever. It started when Chris and I decided to finally cross the pond and visit France in 2018. 2018 turned into 2019. We turned into parents. France turned into Italy in 2021 for our fifth anniversary. […]

We Took Our First Ever Road Trip

Okay so maybe I’m not turning 2, but my business is!  Two years ago, I took my photography biz full time. A lot of discussion with Chris and a baby later, I decided that my time in a traditional office had come to a close. Like being a mother, it’s been more rewarding than challenging, […]

Happy 2nd Birthday to Me!

I felt the need to put “Second” in all caps for the title of this post because I’m mind blown that our daughter is already two. We’re talking full force, grade A toddler. I’m typing this as we (slowly, but surely) prep our home to be suitable for 20+ people to gather in this weekend. […]

Prepping for Layla’s SECOND Birthday

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

The Amount Of Vacation Photos I Take May Shock You

Self-Isolation. When this term began circulating the world, it made me think back to my teen years where I would spend lots of time lounging on my bed with a family sized bag of peanut butter M&Ms in hand as I binge watched The Office. My, how times have changed. Now I lounge on the […]

Two Things Self-Isolating Taught Me

Boobs – They’re fascinating, aren’t they? Coming in all different shapes and sizes, they’re both physically appealing and source of nourishment. Whether you’ve birthed and breastfed multiple babes or you […]

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

Katie Wilson Last year, we welcomed our beautiful baby girl into the world and our home. Now we’re approaching the big one year (SOS), and it just seems so unreal how quickly time has been passing. Not only will we be celebrating L’s first birthday, but it will also have been a year that since […]
