How I Increased My Instagram Engagement Using iPhone Photos

January 14, 2019

The term Instagram engagement is honestly one of my least favorite combinations of words. It plays into the idea that likes mean something big and that you need them to succeed. Wrong and wrong. Instagram can clearly shape your business (hello, I probably wouldn’t even have mine without it), but depending on what you do, Instagram engagement is only a slice of the pie.


What I Learned From My Chemical Pregnancy and Miscarriage

January 10, 2019

I’ve been writing and re-writing this in my head since my chemical pregnancy and miscarriage at the end of October, but I couldn’t bring myself to actually open my laptop and type it all out. Maybe it made it more real, maybe I needed more time to process or maybe, just maybe, for the first time since I started this blog it all just felt too vulnerable and close to the heart to really dive into in the moment.

Free Indoor Toddler Activities to Do in NYC this Winter

January 7, 2019

First and foremost I wanted to say happy New Year! These past few months have been a wild ride to say the least with our preschool flop, a heartbreaking chemical pregnancy and miscarriage and the holidays, but I am finally coming up for air thanks to an all day staycation (currently writing this from my hotel on a Saturday). Thank you to everyone who has stuck along for this rollercoaster, who has taken the time to send us messages and offer your support. We are beyond grateful for each of you and my business wouldn’t have survived without your understanding and patience here. I feel like I’m finally ready to dive back into writing and even writing this just feels so so good.


How I Saved Big Time With Groupon Coupons This Holiday Season

December 21, 2018

This post was sponsored by Groupon.

I know this time of year can be really stressful for so many of us, but I’m one of those crazy people who truly loves the holiday season despite it all. I’ve always enjoyed setting up our tree extra early, watching cheesy Christmas movies, making cookies, listening to the tunes on repeat, finding the perfect gifts for my family and friends and planning unique ways to celebrate.

Stocking Stuffers for Mom, Dad & Owen!

November 28, 2018

Growing up my mom always went above and beyond with our stockings and she definitely passed her love for them down to me. I know for a lot of people their stockings are filled with cheap items that you wouldn’t necessarily want or need, but we try to be really intentional with each item we buy this time of year. We love the act of giving, but I think this season can easily get out of hand when it comes spending. So, Zack and I have chosen, with the exception of a couple small gifts for Owen, to stick strictly to stockings this year. Since I’m obviously not shopping for myself, I made a little stocking wishlist and I’ve shared most of what I picked out for Zack and Owen (so lets hope Zack stays off this post).


A Playlist to Get Back Into The Groove

November 27, 2018

Hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving! I’m slowly but surely getting back into the groove after taking most of the holiday week off. I’ve got a sick kiddo on the couch (poor bud), but while he’s resting I figured I would finally put the playlist together so many of you have messaged me for. This playlist is a compilation of all the songs I’ve shared in my stories over the last few months. Hope you enjoy!


Ten Things for the Weekend

November 16, 2018

Just wanted to start off by saying I’m sorry I haven’t been very consistent with these round ups this month. If you haven’t caught up with us on Instagram or Mom and Dad Made a Podcast, we’ve been going through quite a bit these last few weeks. This post explains a lot, but I plan to go into more details soon. Thank you to everyone who has sent us your love, support, solidarity and guidance as we move through this time. So grateful for this community! Continue on for links and have a happy weekend!
