One month in the books and I have to say this whole mom thing is pretty amazing. For a girl who never changed a diaper and was nervous around newborns and thought she needed 8 hours of sleep to survive, it’s true what they say - it’s different when it’s your own. I’m blown away by the level of happiness that comes from being this sweet boy’s mama. So grateful for little Noah and how every coo, stretch, hiccup, sneeze, and yawn just makes me smile every day. A few pics from his first month... they’re not perfectly edited or taken on my nice camera but I love them even more. 💙
Considering the holidays are right around the corner & it happens to be #nationalcookieday today, it just feels right to share these Chocolate Peppermint Cake Mix Cookies with you! 🍪🍫✨They’re soft, chocolatey, a little bit minty, and can be made with 1 bowl and 7 ingredients! And btw... if you’re struggling to find the balance between indulging in all the goodies this time of year and sticking to a healthy routine, remember it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. You can still be part of the festive fun by making/choosing treats that are made with less sugar and better ingredients and enjoying them in moderation and in balance with your healthy meals. Eating the cookie doesn’t mean you “ruined the day” or that you should throw in the towel and “start over on Monday”. Have the cookie and have your healthy meals and ditch the stress and guilt! Recipe on the blog under desserts!
Trading our big travel plans for snuggles at home with sweet Noah and honestly, there’s nowhere I’d rather be… though @graymalin sure makes this Amalfi Coast scene look pretty darn good! Nothing completes a room like these beautiful prints that inspire serious wanderlust, and the great news is everything on the site is 30% off right now, so perfect time to get your hands on one! ⛱🏝⛱
