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,…


Fischer’s BIG Boy Room Reveal + Havenly Review

Wednesday, July 6, 2016 By Lanie Towsley

A few years ago, while expecting Fischer, one of my favorite items to check off on ‘The List’ was designing his nursery. The space where he would snuggle multiple times a day; where I’d rock him late into the night, and refuse to put him in his crib even long after he’d fallen asleep. The place where his imagination would run wild as we read stories about little blue engines, teddy bear picnics, and fish who wear hats. I dreamt about this room from the moment we found out he was a boy, and spent way too many hours at…

Friday, July 17, 2015 By Sarah Ring

By now you’ve probably heard the housewives whispering all about the best selling book “The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art Of Decluttering And Organizing” by Marie Kondo. I mean this book has been featured in countless magazines, morning shows and mom blogs. It’s been everywhere. When my girlfriends couldn’t stop gushing about it over brunch, I knew I wanted into this sorority of organization and zen living. This cult of stylized minimalism and clutter free closets. As a busy mom of two who was desperately seeking to shed the excess, I needed this. It’s the kind of…


How To Design A Room for Variety

Thursday, June 25, 2015 By Quinn Kelly

If you know me, you quickly learn (or observe 🙂 ) that I love accessories in clothing. I love knowing that I can take an otherwise plain outfit and completely alter its feel by the jewelry, scarf, hat, purse or shoes I choose to wear with it. And I highly enjoy matching the style of my outfit to my mood. That way when I walk out the door, what I’m wearing that day represents ME.
