Our Natural Medicine Cabinet and Fighting off Cold Weather Germs

keeping a natural medicine cabinet stocked for kids


Fall and winter are full of the year’s best things. October-February golf many of my favorite things, but they also hold some of the worst: germs. Ohhh winter germy season, how I loathe thee. I’ve recurved many questions about our natural medicine cabinet and now feels like the best time to share how we prevent illness and how we treat it if need be.

My Favorite Interior Design Accounts to Follow on Instagram



If I could do it all over again, (cue “If I could tuuuurn back time…”) I think I’d go back to school to study Interior Design. It’s been a passion of mine since I can remember and would really come in handy these days as O and I renovate homes together.  Since there are no do overs, I rely heavily on learning through the design teams I admire and Instagram is my favorite place to do just that.  Here are the accounts that make the most appearances in my Saved Folder:

My Favorite Cameras + Lenses



A question I receive often is what cameras I use and why. I have been passionate about photography since I can remember, anxiously awaiting my Kodak disposable film to be developed after an elementary school birthday party, making all my siblings line up for photos on vacations and taking selfies well before there was a term. I am certainly no professional but you will rarely find me without a camera on hand. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and save this post for when you have a bit of free time to relax. This post has no shortage of words plus lots (and lots) of photos!

Moving Day

Today, we say goodbye to our home of almost seven years. A friend of mine told me she wrote a note to her daughter when they moved from their first home and I had to do the same. I wonder if I’m overthinking the whole thing. My parents moved my older brother, older sister and I when I was my kid’s age and I don’t remember a minute of it. I don’t have any childhood memories in my home until I was about 5, yet I just want my littles to remember the life we built here.
