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.

I am all types of giddy that my new favorite shop, Calisson Little Royals just sent over these gorgeous goodies for baby Wren! Everything is hand made in France so you know when I found out about them-I clocked some seriously online time over on their stunning site. It turns out a shop local to me carries their pieces which is super convenient.

The sweater Wren is wearing is soft and perfect for New England summer nights and fall days. For sizing, Wren is on the smaller side so she is wearing 3-6 months which fit her perfectly (she is 7 months as of July 6th). The shoes are the only shoes that actually fit wrens tiny feet so far, and had room to spare. If your baby is average size and in the 3-6 month range, then the shoes fit true to size.

I am such sucker for old fashioned bloomers! These are light weight and airy, amazing for the hotter months, but in the fall I am going to put tights on underneath and they will keep her warm on crisp days. The sweater also has an adjustable tie string so it should fit into the winter. Please check out Calisson’s site for more about this brand and where you can shop this look. Also, thank you so much for supporting brands that I love and am inspired by!

La Petite Peach_10 things I am loving this May

I wish I could say it was sunny and warm here in New England, but so far this May is still pretty chilly. I’ve officially started to get out more with the girls while Luke is at school even if it’s windy and bitter. As long as the sun is shining through the clouds every now and then, we can get through a short walk to the beach and back without freezing our buns off. The spring is such a short season here but the flowers are starting to bloom (just a little) and I am getting excited for another summer on Cape Cod. Above is a running list of things I am just loving right now. I think you will like them too! I hope you have a fabulous week and just in case you missed April’s top 10, check it out here.
