A dining room full of flowers for tomorrow's Mother's Day shoot that I had to cancel because yup, we're still yucky sick. But at least I have these beauties to look at, and play with at home! Those clematis are my absolute favorite!
It's official: the girls love period dramas, especially Emma (the BBC version). 😍 Not much else has been tackled this week, since we've all been sick since Tuesday. Just lots of cuddles and couch time and movies. Hoping for a productive weekend since I have a big, fun Mother's Day shoot on Monday!! (Photo by @paulabphoto)
Did you see last week's blog post on cleaning with kids? And learning to embrace the subsequent slowness and inevitable messes involved? What tips do you have for involving toddlers with household chores? Head to the blog for more! Photo by @abigailgallopphoto
First thing I did this morning? Make coffee. Then I gave all my houseplants a nice long drink. I've finally kinda figured out how to keep plants alive. The thing is, they sometimes need sunlight and water. Who knew? 😂
Had a wonderful weekend with my family up in NJ and we're headed back to Virginia today. Lots going on this week, and it's so hard to accept Monday's reality after time away! For now, I'll just pack our suitcases and look at these pretty blooming branches. Photo by @paulabphoto
It's 7:40 and we're right on schedule, eating breakfast together. Like a British bank, this home is run with precision (bonus points for those who get the reference, and also, we're the opposite of precision). Today on the blog I'm sharing our morning routine along with the other #realmomseries mamas! Allll the participating mamas are tagged. (Lovely morning photo by @paulabphoto)
The best Easter table centerpiece is the kind you (read: your husband) pick(s) in the woods! More table inspiration on the blog.
My husband has a man bun and he's teaching Zoe how to clean. Does it get any better? 😂 We partnered with @lemishine and I have lots of thoughts on teaching kids how to clean (and embracing the subsequent slowness and additional mess) on the blog today. #cleanfreakclean #sponsored (Photo by @abigailgallopphoto)
I can't tell you how happy I am that I'm back to drinking coffee... ☕️ I missed this part of my morning routine the past 3 months. Photo by @paulabphoto...more coming from our time with Paula on Friday!
Buttered radish tartines on my favorite black walnut and ivory board from @hudsonworkshop. More of my Easter table inspiration on the blog, link in profile! Can't wait to set the table at my sister's house in New Jersey this weekend!
