I hope you dance

It was a laid back evening for Mia and I at a local “Music in the Park” event. It was the last one of the summer and our first time attending. I was kicking myself in the butt for never going before, it’s such a great chance to get out of the house with the family and connect with the community, friends and enjoy some live music.

Bridal Shower Gift Idea with “Toast the Firsts”

Almost two years ago, I made a special gift for my friend’s bridal shower and I blogged about it. Since then, that post has been my most viewed post to date. It gets over 4K views each month, all coming in from Pinterest. Bless that website. I love it on so many levels. My gift was a basket of “firsts” for the bride and groom. Basically, I included bottles of wine, candles, thongs (yup, get excited!) and poems that will {Read More}

The Oemi Baby Bag! *Giveaway*

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been crazy excited to share this post with you all for the last 2 months! It was then that I was contacted by the people of Oemi Baby, a sister owned company that creates products for moms and babies. They’re mothers themselves, so they have first-hand experience with what other moms would want and expect from their products. They sell adorable sleepers, blankets and hats, but I was given the opportunity to review their {Read More}
