local delivery with smith brothers farms.

With baby #2 quickly approaching, I’ve been trying to get the house as organized and streamlined as possible and that includes meal prepping. With a toddler and newborn in tow, I’m worried about finding time to do simple tasks like go to the grocery store. That’s why I was so excited to discover Smith Brothers Farms, a local family-owned and operated farm that has been serving the greater Puget Sound area for more than 90 years. They have grown to be one of the largest independent dairies in the region, processing and delivering the freshest milk and select Northwest products to more than 50,000 homes every week.

why I've decided to go back to school.

why I've decided to go back to school.

When I graduated from college, I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. I always loved Fashion and had this dream of being a “big wig” at a major fashion retailer or some sort of creative in that field. I decided to major in Communications at the University of Washington because that was the only option that was broad enough to cover almost any type of career. Most large university’s don’t offer specialized majors which leaves a lot of students pondering what they are going to do with their degree after they finish. But now there are so many options for schooling that offer a specialized career path and one of them is Interior Design! And it just so happens that one has opened here in Seattle, which is why I am so excited to share Heritage School of Interior Design with you!

how to balance family life.

As a family of three who is about to become four, this topic has been on my mind for quite some time now. But the question is - how do we balance it all? Even before kids I remember it being hard to find time to fit everything in and then you add a child into the mix and you better buckle up! But, I would like to think we’ve done a pretty good job of balancing it all. And today I’m sharing how.

how to host a galentine's brunch.

Last weekend I had some of my closest blogger babes over for a Galentine’s day brunch to celebrate the season of love. Sometimes getting together with your girlfriends and relishing in all things girly is the best way to spend valentine’s day in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I love my husband, but we aren’t big on celebrating holidays like this - we love each other every day of the year (duh)!
