Hello. It has been a while since I have shared a life update and I have so very much missed writing, and I have missed hearing from all of you. Life has been moving at the speed of a bullet train, and to say I have had a few tears lately is an understatement. I am currently sitting in bed with mascara rolling down my cheeks half tired half emotional wondering if this post will publish in July or if I will miss it altogether and move right into his one year birthday? We will see but lately setting goals and watching them burn been more common than not. Anyone else who relates?
What to give mom is always the hardest question of the year! Mother's Day always seems to sneak up on all of us and yet it is on the calendar for all of us to see every year after year. It is my very first Mother's Day! I still cannot believe it! A list complied with love for all the mamas in your life. Of course, all items are hand selected by me, and I hope this helps no matter the occasion. You can always come back to list if you need a little something special for yourself, your best friend, grandmother, bhday, new mama, whatever it is here! Gift Guides are one of my all-time favorite parts of the blog, and nothing makes me happier than hopefully making your shopping a little easier!
Does springtime make anyone else want to start decluttering and organizing every single room and drawer in your home, or is it just me? This winter was long and grueling, piles of snow and bitterly cold temperatures, let's say she more than outwore her welcome! All the days we spent watching the snow fall I was slowly making a list of ways to refresh and switch up our living spaces! I am pretty sure that I have been in decorating mode since about January. I am ready for spring.
I can't get enough of this tablescape. Honestly, how many times have you seen me set this table over the years? This tabletop is hands down my all time favorite. There isn't anything quite like the feeling of springtime. Fresh flowers and cherry blossoms blooming. It is a season filled with fresh beginnings and in our family loads of entertaining! Spring has always been very close to my heart.
I half wrote an update at four and five months to share but never could seem to hit publish. Lately, I feel like that has been our story over here. Life is full on busy and active with our new six-month-old, and I find myself wishing I had a little more time to do everything but also wishing it would just stand still. Motherhood is strange like that. Please go to bed, but wait I miss you while you are sleeping. I know it won't get any easier either.
