Neutral PinkBlush

Holiday Neutrals

I like to grab a warm cup of cozy for the holidays – and I suppose what I am feeling inside is reflected in my outfits. I love comfy, neutral pieces and a mix of various textures.

For the past 4 years our tight-knit friend group has visited a tree farm to cut down a tree. This was baby J’s first year joining us!

My husband and I chose to not get a tree this year but

Recent House Projects

I must admit being a stay-at-home mom is much different than I anticipated! I have found that while baby is sleeping, rather than “sleep when he sleeps” I like to do house projects.

Below are a few new projects I have been working

Why I Chose to Keep My Baby’s Photos Off of the Internet

As I mom I enjoy reading posts of mommy life and in moderation I love scrolling through the photos of other moms I follow to see how their babies have grown/are growing. I enjoy the real, gritty photos along with the bright, airy, staged and edited ones! Pre-baby I came to the decision that I did not want to post photos of my little one on the internet – is that strange? I did not
