Two days after Christmas my baby girl turned FIVE!  Seems like just yesterday I was announcing my pregnancy here on the blog and now she’s a whole hand of years old, has her first wiggly tooth and keeps talking about how excited she is for kindergarten next year….this momma’s heart just can’t handle it all! …

lydia’s window treatment details

February 13, 2018

Lydia’s room is, by far, the happiest in our whole house and, even though I feel a little bit guilyy that I focus so much on her room when Luca still doesn’t technically have fully complete quarters of his own, I love that every time I post a shot of her sweet little space or…

a vintage JB Van Sciver bamboo bed for Lydia

December 7, 2017

I’m a firm believer that good things come to those who wait – or, in my case, when you aren’t even looking in the first place!  It seems like whenever I’m on the hunt for something in particular, I always come up empty handed, but my best finds to date have always been popped up when…

a little christmas cheer in lydia’s room

December 22, 2016

We are in full-on Christmas mode over here, baking cookies, listening to holiday tunes, burning our Christmas lights 24/7 and counting the days until Santa’s arrival!  The most wonderful time of the year is even more magical when you’re experiencing it through the eyes of your almost three year old and I’m loving every single…

Happy Monday!  Taking a tiny break from all things interior decor and design this morning to gush over a couple of the maternity photos I got a little sneak peek of over the weekend!  I didn’t do a session when I was pregnant with Lydia, which is crazy now that I think back on it,…

transitioning from a crib to a big girl bed

July 25, 2016

When I was pregnant with Lydia, long before I even knew I was actually having a little girl, all I could think about was a nursery centered around a gold Jenny Lind-style crib.  The day we had our ultrasound which, indeed, confirmed our little bundle was a baby girl, I ordered this crib and immediately…

April 13, 2016

Taking a little break from all things interior design and decor to talk about some pretty exciting news in our house… little miss is officially POTTY TRAINED! I’m one proud momma! I really got lucky, I had no idea what to expect or how quickly she would take to the whole idea but she’s just…

lydia’s 2nd birthday bash

January 25, 2016

A down side to being a Christmas baby is that sometimes, you have to have your birthday party in January (especially if you are a military child because all of your friends are away for the second half of December!)  We celebrated Lydia’s second birthday with my family on the actual day, and then two…

friday five: sweet little things i’m loving lately for lydia

November 20, 2015

Having a little girl is like living with a little doll who lets you dress her up, and it’s even better when she loves jewelry and tiaras and and has an affinity for anything and everything gold, sparkly and girly!  While I’ve loved every stage of motherhood, I have to say, this one is definitely…
