Little Things :: Including Them

For me, one of the most precious sounds is hearing my little people hone in on what they’re thankful for — really digging deep into that place where they realize that they have lots to be grateful for, even in their most “dire” of circumstances (like, not getting to have three cookies after dinner, or… read more

I’d like to preface this post by saying that, while I’m super proud of this pineapple costume concept, it’s very plain to see what (or who) truly is the star here. I have to admit, I had my doubts about setting a 1.5-foot-tall pineapple crown on a 14-month old… but to my surprise, she wore… read more


10 Best :: No-Carve Pumpkins

Less than two weeks until Halloween, and would you believe that I haven’t the faintest idea of what I’ll be dressing up as (and this slam dunk set the standards pretty high)? In fact, I don’t even know where we’ll be celebrating! Needless to say, I’m a little underprepared this year… but the two-week mark kicked me… read more
