A Pretty Pink Home


Gosh, it's been a really long time since I've shared a home tour on my blog. When I saw this home, belonging to Sara Mueller, over on Glitter Guide I just had to share it here. I absolutely adore a home that adds pinches of pink throughout. I've always been a lover of light pastel colors, and now that Magnolia is in our lives our home has even more touches of pink. Sara is the blogger behind A Dose of Pretty, and let me tell you her home is certainly full of a few doses of PRETTY!

Baby Stuff



Before we had Magnolia, Ryan and I had a serious conversation about "baby stuff!" I know it's easy to collect stuff over the years and to end up with overflowing closets and overcrowded basements. I know kids are often showered with toys and gifts, because they're just so darn adorable and everyone wants to spoil them with cute little toys. We take thought in every item that we welcome into our home, and I didn't want that to change once our baby girl arrived. It's important for me to have a well organized home and to only have products in our home that we truly believe in.

Magnolias on Mother's Day


It was May 7, 2016. The Saturday before Mother's Day. We decided we wanted to plant a Magnolia tree in our front yard and so we spent the day shopping for our perfect tree and then we came home and found just the right spot for it to grow. We knew if we had a daughter someday that she'd be named Magnolia, if we had a son he'd be named after my grandpa. That Saturday we were counting down the days until our IVF transfer, we had one perfect embryo in the freezer waiting for us. We had ten days until our scheduled transfer.

Life Now At 36


I just recently celebrated my 36th birthday, on Good Friday actually. I woke up to Ry singing me Happy Birthday as our little baby girl laughed at her daddy and cuddled in my arms. We enjoyed a slow morning at home as the day started with gray skies and a thunderstorm. By lunch time the sun had came out and we went to the Country Club Plaza to do a little shopping and have a late lunch. Magnolia was a complete angel and slept in her bassinet off and on throughout the day. I was able to comfortably nurse her in our booth at the restaurant before we left to visit the botanical garden. My birthday was perfect and I feel so grateful to be a new mommy this year. I seriously look up and say "Thank You God" every single day. My husband and daughter are my everything and spending the whole day with the both of them, just enjoying the simple things in life, was really the best birthday ever. I picked out my birthday gift this year and it has seriously made my new mommy life so much easier! I got this purse + diaper bag combo by Fawn Design and this Kate Spade wallet
