Being Mama/ Home/ Home Page/ Parties/ Pregnancy

Family and friends were a bit confused when they heard that I was having a mother blessing instead of a sprinkle or baby shower to celebrate my third baby. I got a lot of confused, “What is that?!” responses even after explaining it to them. But I knew a mother blessing was definitely the right choice for this pregnancy and after attending, my friends and family agreed. Read more

Toddler-Friendly Eerie Halloween Porch Decorations

Design/ Home

Decorating for holidays with a toddler around can be challenging — especially for Halloween. You don’t want the decorations to be too scary or too uninteresting, and everything needs to be well out of reach so they don’t destroy or attempt to eat it. The key is to keep decorations simple, but fun. Keep reading for my take on eerie (but not scary) toddler-friendly Halloween decorations for the porch. Read more

How a Barn Door Transformed our Family’s Loft

Design/ Home/ Home Page

When we moved into our home we loved that it came with a nice loft. But even though the open space made for a fantastic play area for the kids, it was the first thing anyone saw when they walked up the stairs. Keeping the space clean with a tornado for a toddler and mini teenager wasn’t easy and I really needed a space to meet with clients or sit at a desk and work so we decided to transform the loft into a functional office space with room for the kids to play while I work. It’s going to be a long design process, but I’m so excited to share the first steps! Read more

How to Safely Bring Indoor Plants to the Family Home

Design/ Home/ Home Page

My grandfather put a lot of work into the floral landscape around his home. It was honestly the most beautiful home garden I’d ever seen and inspired me to try my hand at gardening. But it turns out that I’m not a very good gardener. Unless my outdoor plants are connected to a drip system they’re probably going to dry up. So instead, I keep plants inside the house! How do I do this with kids ranging from ages 1-7? Well, there are 3 ways to safely bring indoor plants to the family home. Keep reading! Read more

My Closet’s Amazing Transformation for the New Year

Design/ Home/ Home Page

Before kids, I was one of those Type-A hyper-organized people who never forget a thing and went around reminding others of their own schedule. Everything in my apartment was in a certain place and super clean. After kids? I spend about 10 minutes looking for my car keys before I need to go somewhere — sometimes they’re under the ice cream in the freezer. I’m lucky if just one room in my home has some sense of organization, and to be honest, it really affects how organized or chaotic my mommy brain is at any given time. So to start the year with some sort of sanity, I’ve worked hard — OK, my husband did most of the work — to create a space just for me that can stay relatively organized and clean. Well, except for when my 11-month-old tears it apart while I attempt to shower for the day. But all-in-all this closet transformation is a win. Read more
