Few things evoke more simultaneous excitement and dread than planning for family photos.  After it's all said and done, you get to bask in the glow of your children's smiles captured on film forever.  But it's the getting there that's hard.  Planning outfits, picking a location, choosing the right family photographer...and, of course, stressing over whether or not your kids will actual...

I recently came across a term I'd never heard before: lifestyle creep.  The gals over at The Middle Edit introduced me to it, and while at first glance I didn't really know what it was, something -- call it gut intuition -- told me I was experiencing it without even realizing it.  Lifestyle creep goes something like this...

It's needing the open floating kitchen shelves instead of your perfectly fine kitchen cabinets.

Today I want to talk about a big ol' buzzword going around.  No, not "spark joy."  I'm talking enneagram.  The new-but-actually-super-old personality test that is shaking everybody to the core.  Know why?  Because it's freakishly accurate!!!

The back story // Allow me to journey back with you a bit.  Ever since Christmas I've been in a really introspective state of mind.  I'm full-fledged wintering, you guys...

Have you ever experienced that moment of uncomfortable clarity when you look around and feel nauseous about how much "stuff" you have?  Given the popularity of Marie Kondo's new Netflix show I'm gonna guess more people are feeling that than ever before.  So tell me: how many boxes have you shuttled to Goodwill at this point?  Are you living your best KonMari life?

I've never seen the show or applied the KonMari m...

About the shoot...  // Oh.  My.  Gosh.  Becky.  These photos...I'm obsessed.  I have always ALWAYS wanted to shoot a formal sequin holiday look in the snow and this past weekend Winter Storm Diego teed it right up.  Luckily my photographer lives under the same roof as I do and we nailed this shoot in about ten minutes....

This week has flown by!  And isn't time in general?  Like we're two months away from Christmas TODAY?!?!  Crazy talk.  Mike and I were organizing our schedules for the next two months and couldn't believe how crunched we felt on time.  In a good way though, ya know?  This time of yea...

Today's post continues my chronicle of getting back in shape and prioritizing my body, health, and wellness.  I invite you to read the first two entries in this self-care series on coming to terms with my age and overcoming limiting beliefs.

The Easy Trap

Do you remember the Staples commercial introducing us to The Easy Button?  The premise was simple: with the touch of the giant red 'easy' button, sitting so conveniently a...

Something I'm always striving to improve at is being fully present when I'm with my daughter.  It sounds shitty of me to even say that I struggle at that.  Like how could I not automatically be living in each moment to the fullest when I'm with her?  It all boils down to multitasking, to trying to stay one step ahead of the game.  To trying to stay on top of everything I've got to accomplish within the scope of a day as it rel...

Since becoming a mom, exercising rarely happens anymore. But I'm more determined than ever to strengthen my body so I can be here for my little girl. With two workouts at Club Pilates each week, I'm being more active while giving my weak lower back muscles the therapy they need.
