Honored to have this card featured on Seattle Bride Mag online today, along with some other very talented designers (including Julie Ann Art!) See the feature here.
Hi, I'm Allie.
I'm a mom and Pediatric Speech Therapist, and currently spend my days enjoying those two things. Here I write about DESIGN, MOTHERHOOD, STYLE AT HOME and LIFE in Seattle. Click HERE to read more about me. Say hi at email@example.com.
Motherhood, right? So glamorous, so easy, so predictable, so within our control. Not. 😂 But also: so rewarding, so hilarious, so joy filled, so much love. I wouldn’t trade it for the world, even on the hardest days, even in the toughest pregnancies. Glad to get to celebrate today and glad be a mom.
This is FULL TERM. I can hardly believe it but I am so grateful. Made it. 🎉
A clean house, fresh flowers, and surprise iced coffees delivered from friends, because it’s always the little things that are the big things, you know?
Nursery status: complete. 🎉 Full reveal on the blog and I will share a video walk through in stories. We maximized a tiny space! Love how it turned out.
Fun giveaway today for one of my favorites, a pair of @beekbytwobirds sandals! Ethically made and perfect for spring. Just follow both accounts and tag some friends in separate comments to enter. Winner announced Friday. ✨
Weekend project: nest nest nest. 😍
We have a crib. 🎉 And I am officially a mini crib convert. We needed the tiniest one we could find to fit in our 9x9’ nursery, which doubles as our laundry room. As a bonus the crib converts to a standard size later on and eventual toddler bed, but for now I’m enjoying maximizing every square inch of this space. Perfect for welcoming a tiny babe. Getting more and more real! Shared in partnership with @buybuybaby. #ad
Happy Easter! When I saw this holiday on the calendar last month I didn’t know if I would make it here still pregnant. Here we are, and the combination of that and this day feels like all the redemption we could ever ask for. Happy Easter indeed. 🐣
I had a grocery story clerk say to me this week, “Wow, you look like you’re ready to pop!” To which I responded, “Thank you!” enthusiastically and wholeheartedly. She looked at me confused. The five seconds were too short to explain all about the preterm labor, the hospital visits, the thought that I would never make it to 34 weeks let alone look “ready to pop” in this pregnancy. It was all I dreamed of hearing at 28 weeks in the ambulance. And here I am, still standing, buying groceries, pregnant at 34 weeks and looking like a healthy, normal, pregnant person. My perspective, along with nearly everything else, has changed. What a compliment, looking so full term. I’ll take it, every time. ✨
