38 weeks (almost)

Estimated Due Date: January 7th (2 weeks and a few days to go!)

Nearing the end of my pregnancy is bittersweet. I really enjoyed my pregnancy and my baby bump but I look forward to so much with her outside the womb.


Can I just add that I look forward to medium rare steak, smoked salmon bagel, proscuttio, pate, and brie?


Third Trimester Update

“You’re a pretty cool pregnant lady” – Husband.

I’m not 100% sure what Matt meant by that but I’ll take it as a compliment.

I am 28 weeks! 28 weeks and 3 days to be exact.


Half Way, Baby!

If you follow me on social media, then you have probably heard that Matt and I are expecting our bundle of joy January 2017.

We did our anatomy scan yesterday and found out that our little babe is healthy, moving (A LOT), and growing right on target. Last time we saw our baby, it was at our first appointment around 7 weeks. Time flies!


Auntie Alert

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I just announced that my beautiful sister and brother-in-law are expecting their first baby! I am so, so, so, so, SO excited to finally be an aunt! Them joining parenthood means I’m joining it, too (well, not literally). I’ll spare the sappy post because I could go on and on.


Letter to Italy

You may have the universe if I may have Italy. ~ Giuseppe Verdi

Dear Florence + Rome,

Where do I even begin? After we had our stopover in Iceland, enjoyed our brie and wine in Paris, and strolled through Venice, we took the train to our last two stops…



I find that pouring myself in something creative, big or small, is my ideal way of de-stressing. That is the reason why I blog, why I love taking pictures and videos, why I enjoy our candle business, and why I love being in the kitchen…


Blue Lagoon Soaking

The geothermal mineral spa took us under its wings for about five hours… letting us soak, swim, drink, and enjoy the first part of our vacation together. I think it was also the secret to why we didn’t experience jet lag once we landed in Paris.
