I’m so excited that my good friend, Jill Oulman agreed to guest blog this week! Jill is a Fertility and Marriage Therapist out of Denver, Colorado. Her practice focuses on helping individuals navigate through the emotions involved in conception, pregnancy, motherhood, infertility, post-partum and grief and loss. Ten years ago (yikes, gasp!!), we used to work together in the fashion industry in NYC. I asked Jill to give us a few thoughts on TTC and infertility . . . Thank you, Jill!! Xx
“Even though our brain knows that fairy tales aren’t real, we often hope and dream for the perfect man, perfect home, perfect baby, our own happily ever after. But what happens when a baby is part of your dreams but not your reality? (more…)
As some of you already know, I’m married to an IT Consultant who unfortunately, has to work very long hours. With two kids under the age of three, I often wonder, how are other moms doing it? Do they have extra help? Do their husbands get home by 5pm every night?
Too cold to play, the minutes crept like hours yesterday. Perfect time to bedazzle a tee with a toddler! Cut triangles out of a new sponge, paint sponge side with fabric paint (I used Pebeo Setacolor Opaque Fabric Paint) and stamp away. Pretty simple and fun for little ones too!
What do you think? Are toddlers too young for pedicures?
I honestly just thought it was a way to get some one-on-one time with my daughter. Since her brother has arrived our time has been shared. So, what better to do on a Saturday afternoon than take a “girls trip” to the nail salon. (more…)
Oh, how life has changed. It’s 9AM and I’m rocking my son to sleep for his first nap, after all, when you wake up at 5:45AM, 9AM feels like afternoon. Good time to check in on Coachella. Loving the crowns!
Since, sadly, I’m no longer in my twenties, I think a flower crown would look far better on my daughter. I’m adding it to my “make” list. Check out blog Lines Across for tutorials on how to make felt flowers.
