Is anyone else really really glad it’s Friday? I hate to be that person living for the weekend all the time, but this week has been so dark and rainy and gray and drizzly that it has been all I can do to stay awake the last few days, let alone feel motivated on any real level. We are finally expecting a bit of sunshine over the weekend and I need it so much more than I can even tell …

Well, friends, tomorrow is my birthday! And is the case at least 50% of the time, it’s supposed to be cold and possibly even snowy tomorrow. (The other 50% of the time it’s 70 and feels like a heat wave. Ahhhh, April in upstate New York!) So while I’m anticipating a birthday that feels very little like spring at all and should be rather gray, I’m channeling all of the bright, happy spring-like things today in the run up to …

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and I’ll be popping in with the next edition of our Real Talk with Real Moms series, but in the meantime I didn’t want to skip out on sharing some of my favorite things from around the web this week. A few last minute things to inspire your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, alongside those boozy Irish coffee milkshakes we whipped up yesterday! Also, just a few things that inspired me in general or caught my eye. …

We have a tiny girl who has been pretty miserable this week, so I’m really looking forward to the weekend and hopefully a bit of time to unwind. (You can’t blame the one year old teething and running incessant fevers, but it does make the week feel a lot longer!) We don’t have much on our agenda this weekend, which feels really nice, so we might start getting organized for the next batch of renovation projects we want to tackle …

For those of you who have been missing my traditional Friday link love posts (which came up several times in the reader survey recently), please know that I’m working on some really fun new content when the site relaunch goes down in a few weeks! (Let’s just call it a month, because my hunch is that’s where we’re going to end up.) I’m going to be keeping much of the content you love, bringing back a few old things with …

It has been forever since we properly wrapped up the week and kicked off the weekend, so today we’re kickin’ it old school. Also known as, I am working really hard right now between being mommy full time and having just moved in the midst of renovating a house to get back into our usual groove around here. As we approach the stage where she’s mobile, little miss Baby E will likely be transitioning into at least part time daycare …

The Birthday Weekend To Do List

I am going to be playing a bit of hooky this afternoon because today is my birthday! We’ve had such a crazy schedule lately that honestly we have zero formal celebration plans at this point, which sounds kind of amazing. My mom is supposed to bring over my annual birthday cake (the same one she has made me every year since my 6th birthday) and I believe we’re going to cook something really really good for dinner tonight. But otherwise, I’m …

Thank you so so much to everyone who has taken the reader survey so far! If you haven’t yet, would you consider taking a few minutes to do so? I’d really love to hear from you, plus you’ll be entered to win a $100 gift card sooo there’s that. (Who can complain about a hundred bucks?!) I know things were a little quiet around here this week, but I have been working to get some things organized and projects lined …

Happy Friday, friends! I’m switching things up a little bit today after an unexpectedly long hiatus from my traditional Friday Link Love post. It always surprises me that my weekly link round-ups are so popular, but I’ve been playing with the idea of switching things up a little bit. I’ve written hundreds of link love posts and it felt like time to try something new. Still a collection of links I’m loving, still inspiration for your weekend, but packaged up …

Hi, friends! I’m popping in on Tuesday afternoon with the post I had full intentions of having up on Monday morning and have been struggling to finish up. Having a baby? Totally humbling. It turns out, I’m not half the woman I thought I was! Kidding. Sort of. At any rate, I’m bringing back a new/old column today, one I started a couple of years ago that never fully got off the ground. Monthly favorites! On the first Monday of …

Behind the scenes I’m working on getting it together to get back in the usual flow around here. It might still take a couple of weeks to really get in the groove, but I’m excited that Alice and I will be shooting together next week for the first time in over a month so stay tuned for lots of good stuff coming up! In the meantime, I know a lot of people are off work today for the holiday so …
