Owen’s Bedroom Reveal: A Space to Grow Up In

March 29, 2018

Our little home is finally complete now that Owen’s bedroom is officially set up and it feels so good. After so much bouncing around last year, this is absolutely the moment I have dreamed of. Every day we are settling in and our apartment is feeling more and more like home.


Setting the Table for a Holiday Spring Brunch

March 27, 2018

I don’t think I’ve shared it with you guys, but my brother and his wife and Zack’s sister are all moving to New York City within the next month. As I hang around and anxiously await their arrival, I’m over here daydreaming about family brunches and dinners and played around with setting the table for a holiday spring brunch.


5 Ways We’re Keeping Our Brooklyn Home Safe This Spring

March 20, 2018

If you’ve been following along here since this past fall, you know that after our break in history we took the initiative to keep my parent’s historic home safe by installing Logitech’s Circle 2 Camera. Now that we’re back in Brooklyn, in a new apartment, we made it a priority to keep our space safe here as well. Even though we aren’t in the same state or city as my parents, we wanted to leave them with their security camera and start fresh on our own.


Our Bath Essentials, Routine and New Space

March 15, 2018

For the first time in Owen’s life we finally have a bath tub, and you guys, it’s been life changing. When Owen was first born having just a shower wasn’t a problem. It was super easy to bathe him in the kitchen sink, but as he got older and bigger and we started to travel this meant showers for our little guy which was challenging to say the least.


Our Bedroom Reveal: The Best Part About Coming Home After Traveling

February 27, 2018

After traveling for eight months it’s safe to say we were ready to sleep in our own bed again. Now don’t get me wrong, we stayed in plenty of wonderful Airbnb’s, with close friends and family who accommodated us with such hospitality last year and even a few hotels, but I’d be lying if I said we weren’t looking forward to getting our bedroom setup once we touched down in NYC.


Dining Room Reveal: The Heart of Our Home

February 15, 2018

Have you ever been to a home where the dining room and kitchen isn’t the heart of their space? I sure haven’t, and I can assure you the same goes for us in our new place too. Regardless of the numerous apartments we’ve lived in, it always seems as though whenever we have company over, we end up gathered around the kitchen table. Often times we are enjoying a meal, but I’ve noticed that even after our plates are cleared, we spend the majority of the evening chit-chatting in the dining room.


Living Room Reveal: A Minimal, Cozy Space Full of Greenery

February 8, 2018

Tomorrow marks four weeks since we first set foot in our new apartment, an apartment we only face-timed once before signing our lease, handing over our deposits and picking up our keys. I have to admit as we walked through the lobby and rode the elevator up we were slightly nervous. Our building is pre-war and certainly has that old New York charm, but when we opened our front door it was clear we were home.


Coming Home To New York After Eight Months of Travel

January 18, 2018

The last week as truly flown by since we landed in New York. We’re slowly getting our new place together, assembling furniture, ordering bits and pieces we still need and picking out artwork. We’re catching up with friends, visiting some of our favorite spots and acclimating back into winter weather.
