The dreaded doorbell. It is a mom’s worst nightmare. Have you experienced the horror of the doorbell during nap time yet? It’s not pretty. Let me tell you how it usually goes: Fussy baby needs a nap. Fussy baby won’t go down for a nap without a lot of nursing and a LOT of rocking, rocking, rocking. So tired mommy nurses and rocks (and rocks, and rocks) fussy baby until finally, FINALLY, fussy baby falls asleep. Tired mommy carefully lays fussy baby down in her crib, holding her breath so as not to breathe too loudly and wake fussy baby up. Very slowly,…

This post was originally published on Sense & Serendipity. I have been dreaming about having a magnolia wreath for about a year now. Everywhere I’ve looked to buy one, though, I’ve nearly been knocked down by the price tags. $50 plus dollars for a wreath–seriously?! No, thanks.

Accordingly, I found a way to make a beautiful magnolia wreath for less than $25. So much better, right? Full disclosure: I had some of my supplies on hand…

But because of this, I have been spending even more time in my office sending out emails, calling people, and hustling even harder. You gotta do what ya gotta do, ya know? Now that the hours are getting longer and I’m having less time to get out and move, I figured that this month for my growing organically series (my New Year’s resolution)…

DIY Cute Herb Planters

Friday, April 22, 2016 By Jessica Tomes

When I’m cooking, I love to incorporate fresh herbs into my various recipes. (I am part Italian. It’s kind of in my blood.) But I don’t always have what I need on hand. And I will be honest — sometimes I fail to plan ahead and make a quick run to the grocery store before nap time, so then I’m stuck. I am (admittedly) guilty of texting my neighbor girlfriends to see if anyone has whatever ingredient I need in their pantries. So embarrassing! So this Earth Day, I decided to celebrate in a unique and festive way. While I have neither the time or the…
