Happy Friday, friends! In lieu of a Love List today, I wanted to share a little personal update. Today marks my last day of the part-time role I’ve held for the last two years. I’m not sure exactly what the next season will look like, but one thing Dave and I have discussed in-depth is […]

Azelie turned six months old over the weekend! I know how cliché it is for parents to say that time is flying (and, inspired by my friend Emily, I generally try to not dwell on that sentiment), but in the time warp that has been 2020, this milestone really snuck up on me. From day […]

Ginger jar print dress | Something Pretty

I am still taken aback every time I look at the calendar and see that it’s August! It feels as though summer just began, and yet, here we are with only a few short weeks left before school starts. I’m eager to carve out some time this weekend to reflect and figure out what matters […]

Azelie is just over five months old, and gosh, what a five months it has been! Now that we are out of the fourth trimester and quarantine, I feel like I’m slowly inching toward some semblance of a routine and (dare I say it) sense of normalcy. It is almost impossible for me to compare […]
