The Vibe I’m Going for With the Nursery

I’ve been meaning to put all my thoughts together in a blog post to document my process with getting the nursery ready.  I didn’t get started until pretty in my pregnancy because we weren’t sure where we were going to live. Up until late November, we had so many things were up in the air, so it was hard to make plans.  But now that we know we’ll be in…

How I’ve Been Working Out Through My Pregnancy

One of my most frequently asked questions during my pregnancy has definitely been how I’ve been working out throughout. And I totally get why! Working out during pregnancy is something that many people feel differently about – there are so many opinions and lots of guidance on the subject that it can be difficult to navigate.

Second Trimester Q&A

I’m a little late to writing this post since I’m currently 30.5 weeks pregnant, but I still wanted to close out my second trimester with a few questions and answers. I went through all the questions you guys submitted via Instagram last week and rounded up the top questions. I always love reading about other people’s experiences and love hearing all the little things that make each journey unique. Plus,…

We’re Moving Back To Texas

Hi friends! I’m SO thrilled to finally be sharing about our huge move! It has taken up SO much brain space lately and I’m excited to be able to talk and share about it openly now that things are settled and in place (probably goes without saying… there were a lot of moving pieces that needed to get sorted before sharing…). So let’s start here… GOODNESS, it has been QUITE…

Mayple Soy Salmon

Today I am so excited to share one of my favorite recipes. Duncan and I eat this (at least) a couple times a month – its delicious AND simple. I haven’t always been comfortable cooking, and lets be honest, I’m still not that comfortable. But, it has definitely been one of my favorite pastimes this year. I love finding easy, go-to recipes. I also love spending time in the kitchen…

Denver Office Photo Tour + Home Decor Shops I Love

I apologize for this JUST being published, but I’m thrilled to finally share the finished realists of my Denver office! I LOVE it! Of all the rooms we decorated in the house, I think this one took me the longest to figure out because I couldn’t figure out how I wanted to lay it out. I knew I needed a full length mirror in here for outfit try-ons and styling,…

Duncan’s 2020 Playlists

A few weeks ago, I teased that Duncan had been working on a third playlist to finish out 2020. If you missed them, he shared the first playlist in this blog post he wrote during quarantine. He shared what he had been reading, listening to, and learning through that season (such a good post!). And then he put together another playlist later in the year called “I Love You 3,000.”…

Pregnancy Fashion Favorites

Alright, bringing you guys more pregnancy content today, something that’s been highly requested, so I hope it’s helpful. I’ve been taking my time when sharing this stuff because I really want to make sure I LOVE something before telling other mamas-to-be to go buy it. All we (pregnant women) want is to be comfortable and have clothes that make us feel good about ourselves LOL, so want to be sure…

Things I’ve Used During Pregnancy So Far

I’ve been putting this post off for weeks because I kept thinking I needed more time to truly figure out what my favorite things were and what I used the most. But then I realized I was putting too much pressure on myself to have the “perfect” or most researched answers. When the truth is, I bought a bunch of stuff and then gravitated towards using a handful of things.…

Denver Home Bedroom Photo Tour

Hi friends! I’m *so* excited to finally be sharing the finished product of our bedroom here in Denver! We moved here in October 2019 and have been slowly but surely decorating over the past year. Things were a little slow to start because I was also planning a wedding (and the holidays!)….oh, and then the pandemic slowed things down FOR SURE. But I am THRILLED to be sharing everything with…

Outfits Getting Me Through 2nd Trimester

As I navigate my way through my second trimester, one of the trickiest things for me has been finding things to wear that I feel good in. Seems like a simple problem, but at this point, my body is just in an unrecognizable place for me and getting dressed has been a stressor. It’s like my bump is definitely visible, but I also feel like I’m that awkward stage where I’m…

Fall Getaway at The Broadmoor

You might have seen or followed along on Instagram, but I wanted to share a little more about our trip this past weekend to The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs! I’ve gotten a few questions and I’d love to have a place where I can send people and house some images of our experience! I saved my stories from the weekend to a highlight but I think those expire after a…

2020 Fall Bucket List

It’s crazy how much more excited I am for fall now that we live in Colorado. I kinda got to experience it last year (I moved in October) but definitely more so this year and I’m clearly here for it! Basically I plan on living in all the oversized sweaters and doing as many fall things as I can! I really, really want to find a pretty fall hike (more…

Cozy Fall Decor

In case you haven’t had enough fall content around here, I thought I’d share some very cozy fall home decor! I love decorating for the holidays and seasons, but I tried not to go overboard with pumpkin everything and instead thought more about texture and color. I think you can definitely make your home feel like fall simply by adding details like this blanket and this faux sheepskin pillow. I…
