yesterday we flew into NYC with excitement and anticipation. a 150 year old Brooklyn brownstone with @danielleburkleo and crew, welcomed in by real NY pizza, brick walls, and endless twinkly lights. here’s something true: I think if you can navigate manhattan and subways and Rockefeller center during Christmas with eleven kids under the age of twelve, you can do pretty much anything #wetired 👊🏼 going to bed with full hearts, and ready to do it all over again tomorrow.
this guy is 39 today, and he’s still my favorite person to hold hands with. I’m grateful for the way he makes the world a little better everyday with his generous heart and ability to see the best in everyone. happy birthday, nick, you’re pretty awesome.
little bits of fall lingering around the house and bringing a little sunshine.
I wanted to say thank you, on this small business Saturday, to all of the friends and family that have shown their support over the last few years. It's funny how you say yes to the unexpected, and God can turn it into something really amazing. I know we live in a time where our feeds are filled with all kinds of small businesses trying to make it - thank you for supporting them! My little business has allowed me to be home with my kids, to be present as a mom, and to be able to say yes to things like ballet and football (and basketball and soccer and baseball and swimming #sendhelp). It has allowed me the freedom to do something I love with people I love, it has taught me so much about community, and it has been such a GIFT to our family. Thank you for believing in us - we love you!
christmas spirit on repeat in all my diffusers all day long.
taking their monthly bath. jk. kind of. (but does anyone else forget the last time their kids were bathed? 😬🤷🏻♀️) #francesivahandeloise
she spent a full twenty minutes putting my hair into tiny ponytails today and it was nothing short of delight for both of us. #eloiseglenda
we’ve reached a new stage of parenting: my oldest came to me tonight and said, “you should probably look into the Amazon Black Friday sale that’s running nov 16-23.” first of all, he knows me a little too well, and also, I don’t think his dad is going to be very excited about having another shopper in the house 😬
double cappuccino and drinking chocolate, good conversation, surrounded by pastries, in the cutest little downtown.
