You know that place between sleep and awake, that place where you still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting. The boys had the idea to do a Peter Pan theme this year. And it was a good one! We had so much fun with it. I made them… Read More Off to Never-Neverland!
I shooed out all the orange for neutral fall colors this year. I went for everything that is wood and white and natural. There’s something simple and calming about it. Because it is subtle, I don’t think I’ll have a problem leaving it up until Thanksgiving. I’ll show you all the details and then how… Read More Neutral fall decor ideas

I did that to surprise the… Read More Simple Halloween decor

There are things I love about this holiday: Kids running around in all sorts of costumes and silly hats, eating my kids’ candy when they’re asleep, visiting the pumpkin patch. And things I strongly dislike: Blood, gore, skeletons and scary movie commercials. Oh my gosh, the scary movie… Read More Halloween
I’m excited to tell you that we’ve got a third little pumpkin on the way! I’m in my second trimester now and it’s starting to soak in. Marcello and I gave the boys the news.
