Satisfied with her life

The frumps are for real, folks, and they’re contagious. Let’s put an end to them, shall we? It’s so much easier then you might think. Trust me. We can do this. It’s as simple as choosing one thing over another. The cute top over the frumpy top. The cute shoes over the frumpy shoes. The […]

What to Pack for a Disney Vacation

April 5th, 2017 by

We live about an hour away from Disney World, so we generally choose the least crowded times to go. I’ve seen Disney in 90 degree heat on a crowded mid-summer day, and I’m not eager to repeat that experience. That was years ago, however, and my Disney game has improved dramatically since then. I know […]

What to Pack for a European Vacation

April 4th, 2017 by

Last time we took a family vacation to Europe, Lola was 4 and Eva was 2. After months of planning and preparation, we arrived, ready for everything. Except international travel with a toddler.

Spring is the season of the dress. Summer is all about bathing suits and shorts, and fall and winter are just made for cozy layers, but in springtime, dresses rule. I like to picture myself wearing these pretty dresses to weddings and garden parties, but more likely they will turn up at church and the occasional date nights.

5 Ways to Look Great in a Bathing Suit

March 23rd, 2017 by

Okay, so I’ve shown you about a bajillion bathing suits, but really, the actual suit-wearing only comprises a fraction of your summer: the swimming and sunning and sporting part. What do you wear when you’re not in the water? A cute coverup is critical, and in my opinion, it’s second only to the suit in importance. […]

Lately, I’ve been teaching my girls a truth that, as adults, we know all too well. There’s always someone who has it better.

Oh the drama! Bathing suit shopping after months of cozy clothing and lovely layers seems like an unnecessarily harsh start to the gentle season that is spring.
