A LOOK BACK: 2020

Our fam is walking out of 2020 with the same determination that Sadie has in this photo. The biggest mazels to everyone for making it to the end of this unbelievable year. It stopped us all in our tracks and took our breath away. It taught us to slow down and savor the little things. It was scary, uncertain, uncomfortable and transformative. Millions of people suffered–both outwardly and silently.  And perhaps the craziest part?  The entire world was in it together. 2020 reminded us that our health is truly everything. Somehow, despite all of its countless hardships, 2020 flew by. 

9.5 MONTHS WITH SADIE

How is quarantine time moving by even quicker than normal time? I keep blinking and Sadie and Naiya keep growing another month older and I can’t keep up.  Still working so hard to find the perfect balance between working remotely from home and mom-ing without any breathers and it’s definitely not easy! I’m sure all mamas are feeling the grind this year of all years so I know we’re all in it together. 

TUTU + SCARF DRESS

LA blogger, RELish's daughter, Naiya, wears a PatPat tutu

Writing from Reno-Tahoe where I’m spending a couple days away with my hubby. It’s only my second time away from Naiya since she was born and it was so hard to leave her! Phil convinced me to come with him on this business trip so that we could get a little time away together.  In the end, I’m so happy he convinced me!  Missing Naiya like crazy but it’s so refreshing to have a quick breather outside of Los Angeles (and to practice not being a #stagefiveclinger. We snapped these photos right before we left of Naiya in the cutest tutu dress and me in one of my favorite scarf dresses. Sharing our outfit details below as well as a few similar looks I’m eyeing at all different price points.

WHERE TO SCORE THE PERFECT LITTLE WHITE DRESS

For those of you looking to track down the perfect little white dress to add to your wardrobe (which is especially ideal for engagement photo sessions or other wedding festivities), this post is for you!  I scooped this dress up from one of my favorite online retailers, Chicwish and I’m obsessed.  Aside from being so cute, it has a price tag of less than $80.00 so it’s also pretty much guilt-free.  Sharing outfit details with you below as well as some ideas in terms of how to style it for fall. Wrapping up today’s post with a quick family update. Enjoy!
