Living in an organized home just feels good and makes for a lot less stress. Would you agree? Today I’m giving you a peek inside our cabinets and drawers to share some of the things that help keep us organized.
Of course I went all out for Rowan’s 1st birthday party!! Decorating and party planning is my creative outlet. Plus, it was much more than a birthday party. It was an opportunity to gather close friends and family from as far away as Hawaii. And that, my friends, is what life’s celebrations are all about.
As a first time mom, I was clueless what we’d need for our babe. I remember walking into buybuy Baby, where they make you feel like you need the entire store, and the minimalist in me was more intrigued by what we didn’t need. So I’ve waited to compile my list based on the things we actually use(d) and love(d) and some of the things we could’ve done without. Plus, I’m recommending where to register and why. I hope it’s helpful!
Holidays are more meaningful with our 8 month old, Rowan, and establishing family traditions are important to us for bringing our family close and creating memories.

I’ve included 15 matching sets to choose from below, along with some of my favorite accessories—all with shipping options to receive just in time for Christmas!
This will be Rowan’s 1st Christmas and I can’t wait to see Christmas through her eyes, especially as she grows to understand it.

Ooh la la, I would love it if Santa brought me any one of these gifts and I hope you’ll love my picks too. I’ve rounded up a collection I think any woman would love, whether it be your mom, sister, or friend.
Guys can be particularly tough to buy for, although I feel like you can’t go wrong with some sort of tech gift. Think technology and something classic like a duffle bag and you’ll have the men in your life marked off your list in no time. My husband owns a lot of what’s included here, so it’s guy approved and I hope the person you’re buying for loves it too.
Let’s talk about what’s fueling my creativity lately! One of my dearest friends, someone I’ve known since 6-years-old, asked me to help with the design of her nursery for baby #2—it’s a boy! She sent me an image she really liked and I went to work…
