Holiday Style Guide: Red, Green & Gold

  There’s something about December that makes me want to dress up more than usual. I’m not about to dress like a Christmas tree, but I would like to add a few details here and there that add a holiday vibe to my everyday uniform.

October/November {round up}

I missed my October round up, so I’m jumbling it all together in this post. I’ve been busy painting, photographing, Christmas gift shopping, reading, child-wrangling, European holiday planning, and generally bumming around at home, taking naps and toilet-training and shaving off my winter coat of leg hair.

One of my younger sisters visited for a little over a week, at the same… Continue reading September {round up}

Six Month Photoshoot

  This precious cinnamon roll hit six months in August. I dressed him and Ronan in matching Bonds onsies for extra cute factor and tried to get some photos before one or both of them started crying or fell off the bed {Seb ended up crying}. He’s crawling, trying out solids, slobbering on any toys… Continue reading Six Month Photoshoot

August {round up}

Honestly, August has been a bit of a non-event. I went out on the 5th and then didn’t leave the house for THREE WEEKS. Mostly due to a lingering cold/flu, then a bout of what I think was food poisoning – only Ronan and I were affected – and my husband bring extra busy with… Continue reading August {round up}
