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

Easter Weekend

As I sit here and reflect on this past weekend, I can’t help but be thankful to have such a close network of family and friends in Atlanta.  As usual the weekend was packed full of activities, and overall was a huge success! Read More

Masters, Augusta National

A big congrats to our new Masters champion, Sergio Garcia! This time of year and this tournament in general always makes me wish I was better at golf. I’ve tried my hand at the sport a few times – taking lessons in college, regular trips to the driving range and putting greens, and even playing in a charity tournament – but I’ve never dedicated the time it takes to master the game. I also don’t regularly follow the sport professionally, except for when it comes to the Masters.

Living just two hours from August National it’s hard not to follow this tournament. Most Atlantans know at least one people who has experienced the Masters, or has experienced it themselves. I am fortunate enough to be in the latter group, in 2015 Ryan and I made the trip down for a practice round and were blown away. It is even more beautiful in person and the benefit of the practice rounds are you can bring cameras in and players are relaxed and a lot more accessible. Read More

Friday Reads

Happy Friday! I cannot believe the weekend is already here, this week completely got away from me – as most have been lately. When I have a lot going on I think it’s important to take a few minutes for myself – whether it’s reading an article I saved days before, having a quite glass of wine, or just catching up on the news. That said, I thought I would share a few links to what I’ve been reading during these short moments lately.  I hope you enjoy.
