Sesame Street Kids’ Weekends at Busch Gardens in Tampa

For Max’s first birthday, we hosted a pretty big Sesame Street themed birthday bash for our friends and their little ones (for my post about Max’s first birthday, I’ve included the link to that HERE.).  This year I wanted to go a little bit more low key and just hang out with family for the … Continue reading Sesame Street Kids’ Weekends at Busch Gardens in Tampa

Weekly Look | Tweed Blazers for Fall

Even though I had one or two posts in September, I fell way behind where I wanted to be with my blogging, especially my style related posts. Sometimes life gets too busy and something has to give for a while, but I truly missed the creative effort I put into the blog each month and … Continue reading Weekly Look | Tweed Blazers for Fall

Making Time for Adventures

September has simply evaporated in front of me in the blink of an eye. Part of the month was wrapped up anticipating the hurricane and meeting with contractors for the subsequent repair work, though work has also  been extremely demanding and only promises to become more challenging in the coming year. It’s tempting to try … Continue reading Making Time for Adventures

Hurricane Irma

I try to post pretty regularly to my blog, but the last two weeks have been all consuming with (1) prepping for Hurricane Irma, (2) hurricane Irma, and (3) the aftermath of hurricane Irma.  I live in Orlando, Florida, so we are extraordinarily lucky compared to those in the Caribbean, the Keys, and other areas … Continue reading Hurricane Irma

Top 20 Tips for Traveling with Baby

Traveling has always been a passion of mine.   When I got pregnant in 2015, I knew I wanted to share lots of trips and adventures with our little man, and baby or not. Before Max was a year old he completed more than 12 flights, including a trip from the US to Italy.   While … Continue reading Top 20 Tips for Traveling with Baby

Weekly Look | Tie Dye Shorts

As a toddler mom, comfort and practical fabrics have taken a front seat, but I'm a firm believer that those choices don't have to be at the price of looking stylish.  You can pull off an simple yet sophisticated look by just pairing a few staple pieces together with a smart jacket or statement piece … Continue reading Weekly Look | Tie Dye Shorts

Weekly Look | Red Swing Dress

We've had a couple weekend getaways and vacations so far this summer, including our trip to Rosemary Beach last month.  I've taken this swing dress from Abercrombie on every trip. This dress has a great flow to it, and the pleats dress it up just enough.  It is a perfect day to night dress for … Continue reading Weekly Look | Red Swing Dress
