We snapped these photos a few weeks ago when Sadie and I had a date at the beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel. It was a couple of days before I went back to work from maternity leave and I remember feeling so nervous!  At that point, I hadn’t been away from Sadie for more than an hour or two here and there and I was trying to wrap my head around what our new normal might look like. Looking back, it’s crazy that at this point, coronavirus was not yet a household name and that so much has changed in just a few short weeks. Likewise, along with rounding up our outfit details today, I’m sharing some ways our family is protecting ourselves against this scary virus in case this info helps any other anxious mamas out there.


I blinked and Naiya is almost six months old. I’m truly not sure where the time went but I’m excited to share an update with you today.  I’ve been back at work for over a month now and it feels like our lives have become busier than ever. I started to find my new groove back at the office and it feels good to be diving into some exciting projects again.  That said, I can’t help but miss our little maternity leave bubble (more about that here).  The hardest part about being away from Naiya during the day is that I have total F.O.M.O.!  It’s hard to hear about all of the new things she’s learning to do while I’m away and sometimes when I come home from work at night, she looks a little bigger! That’s probably a crazy first time mom talking but I swear it’s true!
