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…

Hello, blogland; so nice to see you again!  I hope you’re all off to a great start in 2017!  The last few weeks of the year really kicked my butt; Luca ended up hospitalized with RSV – anyone with an infant that has gotten it can tell you it’s an absolutely devastating experience; it’s been…
