I'm a mom and Pediatric Speech Therapist, and currently spend my days balancing 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.
Back deck dinners all summer, please. It’s so true that life really happens around the table. The conversations, the laughter, the connection, there really is no substitute. It can look so chaotic in this stage of life with a toddler, but there are a few things that help. Like simple dinners, sitting outside, the long term perspective, wine, and... a grocery delivery service! 👏🏼🎉✨I’m partnering with @shiptgroceries to share that a.) we no longer need to do it all and b.) there are kind, wonderful people who want to do your grocery shopping for you. @shiptgroceries just launched in Seattle with @target, and you can order from your couch and have it delivered to your door in an hour. Anything that makes gathering around a table easier with toddlers is a win for me. The time together is worth it. #shiptlife #itstartswithshipt
It’s officially summer in Seattle and we are here for it. ☀️🍉⛱ Finally getting the full use out of our back deck! Part of it is covered already so I didn’t think we’d need an outdoor umbrella, but I forgot what all day sun really meant and I’m so glad we got one. I feel like it defines the space a little more (plus all the typical, functional things like shade, sun protection, etc) 😂 My requirements were waterproof and toddler proof, and one of the amazon reviewers said it survived hurricane irma (closed, but still) 👏🏽 its by @abba_patio
The color experiment continues. Hello wallpaper! 💙
Friday feels. ✨ My best Craigslist find as of late is that olive green leather ottoman. Indestructible, only gets better with age, and no one’s getting hurt - it or the toddler. 😂🙌🏽
Had to wake him 😍😂 #twogoingonfourteen
Updated the mirror and all the light fixtures and this is how I feel about it: 🤸🏻♀️🎉✨😍 Those sconces are so affordable if you need to do a bunch of lighting, and I’m partnering with @polyandbark to give away a $150 credit (they do much more than just lighting). Just follow both accounts and tag some friends in separate comments to enter. Winner announced in 48 hrs. 💫
Leaving this dreamy place today, taking with us another summer’s worth of memories. We’re the black sheep - out of 23 people, the only ones who don’t live in California. Getting time together like this is priceless and we all know it. Grateful.
Bringing that ping pong paddle everywhere we go and mesmerized by the big kids. Pretty sure this week will be the highlight of his (and our) summers. ✨
We said “I do” right here at this lake FIVE years ago at the end of this summer. Now Trey loves it just as much as we do. ❤️
