When it came time to plan a little getaway for our second babymoon, we wanted a destination that was easy on travel, offered a pool, beach, ocean swimming, and overall as relaxing as possible. We have been traveling with Leo since he was three months old, and this was not his first flight but his first one where he was able to walk! Three hours in the sky was the threshold for this mama!
If you have been following along with us then you know how much I love this child and how much I love a good party! This birthday was one of my all-time favorite parties to plan and I wish we could do it all over again! The balloon garlands, animal party hats, cake, cookies, ice cream, and all of our wonderful friends and family who have lifted us up through this first year made this one unforgettable day. One we will cherish forever.
Let me start this post by saying whoa. The woman's body is mind-blowingly impressive, and for one, I had no idea I was capable of making it a full year around the sun with breastfeeding. I will also say that it was one of the hardest things I have ever done and yet I would do it again. I sat down to write this post over fifteen times that I can recall, so there were many more than that when you factor in the mom brain that I am currently rocking!
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?
I love a good sale and every single year Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale seems to tell me all the things I didn't know I needed! I spent a lot of time looking through every page and questioning what would be of most value in my closet and yours? I find sales like this to be overwhelming at times, especially with over 35 pages to scroll through and assess. That's cute, but I have something similar, or I like it, but the good news is I have done it for you! Below I am rounding up my top 50 items from the sale that aren't trendy, but reliable items every woman needs or should have in her closet! A good Longchamp, bootie, chunky sweater, winter coat, plaid coat, denim, and more. You can mix and match and create multiple outfits using the combinations below.
