Full hearts in Seattle…

Hello friends! It’s been absolutely too long. I miss blogging (and vlogging), but have somehow too easily put this on the backburner. I’ve allowed myself to get caught in the daily routine of having two young children, and all of my downtime is unashamedly avoiding nearly everything that requires thinking of real effort. But again, I miss this. I miss you guys. I miss writing … Continue reading Full hearts in Seattle…

our journey towards minimalism

I’ve been wanting to write this out for awhile now, but never knew exactly what to say. I’ll just start from the beginning… BACK STORY I grew up knowing that it was impractical to have an “unnecessary” amount of stuff. I moved [on average] every three years growing up… sometimes more often and sometimes less. I stayed in the same general city for a good ten … Continue reading our journey towards minimalism

In Mimis Attic Baby Maxaloones REVIEW

Firstly, I must say these trousers matured my patience. I received these maxaloones at Christmas time, but Harvey has just now properly grown into them.

Gentle Methods: Baby Sleeping Through The Night!

From birth, Harvey would wake up on average every … Continue reading Gentle Methods: Baby Sleeping Through The Night!

First Father’s Day! … and it was a posh one!

I wouldn’t have thought that 2015 would be our first year for Father’s Day! So much has changed just in the past year! But I love everything about our life! I love that I have a husband who is a fantastic father. He is so patient with both me and Harvey. He is strong for us both when we aren’t, and he’s been so supportive … Continue reading First Father’s Day! … and it was a posh one!

Traveling Abroad with a Baby

We recently just went on our first proper holiday as a family of three. In fairness, this isn’t the first time we’ve went abroad, but it feels like our first proper holiday. We flew from England to America when Harvey was three months old for Christmas. It was a nice holiday seeing family. This past holiday was a sunny, summery holiday with no agenda but just enjoying … Continue reading Traveling Abroad with a Baby
