Wine project

I recently read an article about Marcos Alberti, a Brazilian photographer, who did a project on the visual impact wine has on people. I came across it through a Facebook link and found it fascinating.  As someone who really enjoys wine, I thought this could be a fun project to try myself.  So, this past Friday Ryan and I hosted a couple friends for dinner and asked if they would be willing to partake in something similar…everyone agreed.

Mother’s Day Weekend

I can’t believe it’s already Tuesday…as usual this past weekend flew by and then Monday got away from me. I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day weekend!

As always we packed a lot into this weekend – Jackson had his first haircut, we went to his cousin’s first birthday party, went on a Sunday morning hike and an afternoon picnic. This was my second time celebrating Mother’s Day, and with a little over a year under my belt as a mom it gave me a chance to reflect on how I’ve changed since having Jackson. Read More

Current reads from around the web

Happy Friday!

These past two weeks have been a bit chaotic – from business travel and kid’s birthday parties to our close friends welcoming a new baby and going to see Bastille in concert…which is why I have been radio silent.  While I haven’t had the time to sit down and write about what all that we’ve been up to, I have definitely still been perusing other blogs and keeping up with news from around the web.

So if you have some down time on this Friday afternoon, check out some of what’s been keeping my attention recently… Read More

And that’s a wrap April

It’s hard to believe that today is the first day of May, I feel like I blinked and April had past. Sometimes I wish I could slow down time, take a deep breath and really take it all in. April was a great though, from a couple work trips to the Glass Animals concert and my future Sister-in-Law’s bachelorette party, I was on the go most of the month. I’m looking forward to May being a little slower paced and enjoying the warm weather before it becomes overbearingly hot in Atlanta.

Anyway, when I posted “Currently” last month was when I realized that people are actually reading this blog.  So I thought I would make it a monthly thing…I hope you enjoy!

My Must-Have Baby Items for 0-6 Months

Happy Friday! Thank you all for the positive feedback on our carriage house, I can’t wait to share the furnished version with you. This post is going in a little bit of a different direction. When I was pregnant I regularly scoured the web for “must-have baby items,” “can’t live without infant products,” and anything else you can thing of in that realm of a search.  I found many lists, but the ones that were most helpful were from other Mom bloggers.

Throughout the first year of motherhood I always made notes and took stock of what was working for me, what I wish I had done differently, or which didn’t quite work for us. Now that I’m through that period and I have a handful of friends and colleagues who are pregnant with their first child I thought I would share my must-have items for the early months.

Finishing the Carriage House

We toured a lot of homes when we were in the market to buy and what really set the house we ended up purchasing apart was a detached garage and unfinished carriage house above.  Since we moved in, over two and a half years ago, finishing out the carriage house has been something we wanted to do but it didn’t become a priority until we had Jackson and could really use the extra space. I’m so excited to share pictures with the space, as we’re about 99% finished! Read More

San Fran & Napa

A couple of my college girlfriends and I have an annual girls trip where take a long weekend and head somewhere to relax, sip fun cocktails and catch up on life. Since this began we’ve visited Key West, San Fransisco/Napa and Atlanta. When we locked in our weekend for this year’s trip (to Chicago!) I went back through my pictures from San Fran and wine country and thought I would share some now with you. Read More
