Happy New Year! 2016 was a year of amazing adventures, new friends, business triumphs, and growth but, like all good things, there were some tough counterparts as well. I have been looking forward to a fresh start this year in 2017.

I have also been thinking a ton about the future of this blog. Back 6 years ago when I started, I was blogging to exercise my writing muscle while being a mom of one. Over time we added two little girls to our family and my writing aspirations have grown as well. After a lot of thinking I have decided to try to blog here on the first week of every month (i.e. February 6th, March 6th, April 3rd, and etc.) I am going to do more lengthy posts about things I love and have discovered over the few weeks in between. I hope you like this new format but as always, your feedback is much appreciated over the next few months.

With all of this I have thought a lot about how much I want to share of my family online. My priorities have shifted and for now, I am going to hold back from showing all of their faces in posts and on social media. It’s just something I feel in my gut at the moment.

Please make sure you stay up to date with my newsletter by subscribing at the bottom of any posts and at the bottom of the home page. You can also follow my professional work over here and on Instagram. Let’s keep in touch during my “off” weeks blogging and I hope you enjoy my favorite things for January, below. *as always simply click on the image to shop the item.

When I saw this bunny pea coat over on the Instagram of Little Goodall, I did an immediate “oh my gosh that’s SO cute”. I mean seriously is this not the sweetest thing you have ever seen?!  For my little W who never, ever wants to wear a coat outside, it’s perfect because it’s fun, and functional. The fabric is thick, and sturdy but also super soft. We tested it out down by the water last week, it was windy and bitter but she was bundled up and warm. Check out this coat, and all the other animal options over at Little Goodall.

W is also wearing a dress by Soor Ploom, Hunter boots, and Gap Kids Tights.

This post was created in partnership with Little Goodall. However, all the words and thoughts expressed here are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that I believe in wholeheartedly.

Fall Make-up Favorites

The dust has settled on the election, and after a stay at home/stay in my pj’s/eat candy all day-day, I am ready to put my big girl pants on and move on. Well sort of.  This weekend is all about the kids with school events, field trips etc. so I am already planning my very cozy Sunday night by the fire with a book and a cup of tea.

If your feeling the election blues, nothing ,and no one can pull you out of a funk like David Sedaris can. He is completely hysterical. His books have gotten me out of some ugly cries from my apartment floor in college.

These books above are personally owned by yours truly and I suggest you get yourself a copy of each one! You can click the images to purchase them or you can scroll through the images below and shop there as well.

As always, I would LOVE to know if you have read any of these, which ones you loved, or even didn’t like so much. Also head over to Instagram and join the conversation there as well!
