Our Darling Girl

Monday, August 25, 2014

Ten days ago on Friday, August 15th at 7:37am sweet Amelia Jane entered our lives and forever altered everything. Weighing 9 lbs 2 oz and 21 inches long, our little daughter took her time coming to us. She's been adored and cherished ever since her arrival. Several months ago my mom gifted us the beautiful dress pictured above with a note attached that read In case she's a girl. Inwardly I smiled, because from the very beginning we always knew she was a girl. Our darling girl.

Be Our Guest

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Have you ever stayed in one of those luxury hotels? One that has a turn down service and leaves chocolate mints on your pillow? Little touches like that tend to make an experience feel extra special. Which is really nice when staying somewhere other than home.

In the next month we have three separate sets of house guests coming to visit us. And while I might not be playing my usual tour guide self, I wanted to make sure our company had some conveniences at their fingertips. Since I already have the #1 item for house guests, I decided to go beyond the basics and create a canister of visitor goodies. (Basics being: clean bed linens and fresh towels.)

For this project you'll need a glass cracker jar or wire basket and a handful of travel items. Simply fit the toiletries into the jar until you are satisfied with how it comes together and then set it on the nightstand where your guest will be staying. Have you tried something like this? I think our guests will approve!

Board Books for Bébé

Wednesday, July 30, 2014


One of the best parts about not finding out what the gender of our little munchkin is are the gifts. Better baby gifts! And for someone like me, whose love language is split between receiving gifts and acts of service, I'm kind of happy with this arrangement. Sure our baby won't have anything to wear, but she/he already has a sizable library. And really, isn't that enough?
