Construction Update

Someone asked me the other day how I manage the craziness of construction, building a new website, owning a business, being pregnant and being a wife/mom. To be honest, it hadn't truly dawned on me how much we have going on until she mentioned it. I guess when there is lots going on, I just ride the coattails of excitement and progress! But now that I think about it, it is a lot and I am tired. So after I...

How to decorate when you have kids

I have been getting asked a lot lately on how I decorate our house while having two little boys. In my opinion, decorating while having kids is all about balance. I don’t think you need to sacrifice style because you have kids, but I do think that you should make decisions based on them at the same time.

We have a baby name!

I am impulsive, spontaneous and generally a very open book. Sometimes, too open. It is in my nature and it is just a part of who I am. I very very rarely have trouble making decisions on what I like and don't. Baby names fall into this same category. Most people either can't decide on baby names until the end or like to keep it private until towards the end. The whole open book part of our personalities makes it...

We’re having a baby!

When Joe and I got married, we both knew we wanted a big family. Both of us are the youngest of three kids and we love having siblings. Our number has always been four kids.

In honor of International Women's Day I would like to honor an incredible friend for her heroic work helping women. Her name is Simone Halpin. She is beautiful, selfless, funny, humble and kind. She is also passionate, deeply passionate. And what's cool is she and her husband act on it and help those that need it. A few years ago, she felt the need to help women caught in human trafficking and started an organization called Naomi's House. Here are a few...
