My favorite time of year has arrived! It's the official launch of cabin season. I still remember my first cabin trip north with John, and it's still what I most look forward to since moving to Minnesota. I like to joke that it’s the Midwest’s version of going to the Hampton's. Everyone piles in their cars and heads north on the weekends and Memorial Day marks the beginning of this most cherished time of year.
I get asked a lot about my feelings towards motherhood and transitioning into the mommy role. Would you believe the idea still sounds so foreign to me seven months later! Some days I completely forget that I am even pregnant! Then the fatigue sets in, my clothes don't fit, and I quickly remember there is a tiny human growing inside my belly.
Hawaii never get's old! This trip was our fourth visit, and I could go every year and never tire of our time spent there. I could do without that eight-hour flight, but worth it in the end! When picking a babymoon destination we wanted a place where we knew the beaches were pristine, the sun would be shining and views fantastic!
Most holidays leave me scratching my head thinking what in the world do I buy for my mom? And now that I am going to be a new mom it brings on a whole new meaning! I am so excited to share a few of my top gift ideas just in time for Mother's Day gifting. I am sure if you are anything like me this time of year seems to sneak up on you and you are hustling to try and make it all happen!
Who is going on vacation? I seriously couldn't wait to get out of the cold and into the warm sunshine. We happened to fly out one day ahead of the terrible snowstorm and watched as it pummeled across the Midwest. Felt like someone was playing a cruel joke. How is it snowing in April? We were sure to soak all the Hawaiian sun we possibly could, and it looks like it followed us home!
You guys! Where is spring? This winter weather has to go! To get you into a hosting mood, I've partnered with Bed Bath & Beyond to bring you a spring-inspired tablescape. An entertaining inspiration that will have your guests ooh-ing and aww-ing while sipping rose all spring and summer long!
This whole blogging journey has been one of my favorite's so far. Yes, there are up's and a lot of downs, but overall I find it to be exhilarating. Working for myself and taking the leap to focus on C+M was one of the scariest yet most rewarding things I have ever done. And that is saying a lot considering all the jobs I have tackled in the past!
A few weeks ago someone introduced me and said, "Have you met Tamara? She is a fabulous beauty blogger?" I think my mouth fell open and I had to manually close it. Listen, the last thing in the world I would call myself is anything close to a Beauty Blogger! I use beauty products because like most of the world, unfortunately, I need them.
