REMEMBER SHOPPING WITHOUT A MASK?

I originally drafted today’s post a lifetime ago when I was uber-prego with Sadie and the world was still “normal.” I remember having such bad morning sickness sorting through all of these grocery store photos, I couldn’t bring myself to press publish so I hit ‘archive.’ Thankful to have rediscovered these shots this week because they have so much more meaning now. Naiya and I took these photos for a branded shoot and today, I’m finding comfort in seeing a snapshot of what life was like before COVID-19. Remember grocery shopping without a mask or without waiting in line six feet apart to get in?! Sharing these photos with you today as well as a family update. Spoiler alert: COVID-19 has really hit home for our family and life over the past few weeks has been a lot.

NAIYA’S (QUARANTINE) THIRD BIRTHDAY

I blinked and we officially have a three year old!  I’m sure I sound like a broken record at this point but I truly can’t believe how quickly time is FLYING by with my girls.  Also, the growth between ages 2 and 3 is truly mind-blowing!  Last year at this time, Naiya was a baby who had just started nursery school and this year, she’s a non-stop talking tiny person (who is home with us all day during this global pandemic but of course, that’s another story!). Sharing photos today from our special, low-key birthday weekend together and a Naiya update below too. It wasn’t the birthday celebration we would have planned but since Naiya was smiling the entire time, it was definitely one for the memory books. 

WHERE TO SNAG THE PERFECT WHITE TEE

White tee’s are a big staple in my wardrobe. No matter how basic they are, though, finding the perfect one has always been tough for me. They often lose their shape in the wash, they don’t fit right or they’re just not flattering. If  you’re on the hunt for the perfect white tee too, sharing my current fave which happens to be on sale for just $15. Sharing where to snag it below and how I’ve been styling it too.  Topping off today’s post with some recent photos of Naiya and Sadie because what’s an outfit post without their smile faces, LBH?

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.
