Hey loves! I'm still on maternity leave, but wanted to pop in real quick to send you some holiday cheer. I've missed you! The task of creating holiday cards with a newborn was daunting, to say the least. But I was determined to make it happen for Bowie's first Christmas. And since we didn't send out birth announcements, these do double duty. We chose the Elm & Gray design from Tiny Prints. They're always a dream to work with, making the process as smooth as possible by printing our recipient addresses and providing personalized postage. It doesn't get much easier... Continue reading

Definitely enjoying the squishy newborn snuggles and innocent milk breath :) The first few weeks have been so crazy and challenging, but incredibly rewarding. Thank you for your well wishes, Shannon. And if you didn't see already, the birth story is up! xo

I know, right? I was the same way, reading every birth story I could find. So excited for you, Kayla. Enjoy these last few weeks, especially since I didn't get a chance to! I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for your IG birth announcement :) xo

We gave birth at Swedish in Ballard with the midwifery group there. I highly recommend! It's the best of both worlds - the freedom of a birth center with midwives, but if there's an emergency, you're right there at the hospital if something were to happen. Definitely reach out to me when the time comes for you to give birth - I'd be happy to share more! xo

Hello friends! I've temporarily emerged from the baby cave to share with you our birth story. Today was Bowie's due date, which I can't quite believe. I often wonder what I'd be doing right now if he decided to arrive when he was supposed to, still content in the womb. I have a romanticized vision of myself nesting around the house, sipping red raspberry leaf tea, reading a novel, having quiet conversations with baby before settling in for our 3rd nap of the day.

I totally want to paint your flower arrangements. You capture florals so beautifully. We should do a little photo/painting collaboration! xo
