Like most households, mornings are busy for us. We are rushing to get the kids fed and ready for their designated locations for the day—school, daycare, playdate, etc. Mornings that are filled with debates over who is wearing what and asking far too many times for everyone to get shoes on. 90% of the […]

When I was a child, I grew up smack dab in the middle of Phoenix. We had a small backyard, a couple of dogs, and a couple of cats. No farm animals. Never in a million years did I think that I would ever keep chickens in my backyard as an adult. You might be […]
Between working, both kids feeling under the weather, teething, laundry, marriage, friendships, and you know… life… sometimes it’s hard to find the time to get certain things done—like baking cookies. I love baking and my three year old daughter thinks that helping in the kitchen is one of the best things, she loves playing “bakery” […]
This summer, like most of the country, my husband and I became obsessed with cold brew coffee. I am not, however, fond of dropping $4+ every time I want a refreshing and cold caffeine fix. Nor do I have time to make a coffee run on the daily, with two kids under 3. Side note: cold brew […]
My baby just started preschool (insert tearful emoji here). He is nearly three and we have been fortune enough to be able to have him home with my husband, me, or an entrusted nanny for all of his life. I know it’s time, but it is pretty trippy to think that our morning routine will […]

Summertime in Phoenix is not my favorite. Every year I tell myself that summer isn’t so bad, and then every year I complain all summer long. Now that I have little kids, I hate the desert heat even more. It’s too hot to drive anywhere past 10am, and we end up cooped up inside most […]

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching. Perfect time for us mamas get out and enjoy some amazing eats that we didn’t have to prepare, or clean up after. Let’s take that hair down, slap some makeup on, and dust off that reserved for special occasions dress. It’s time for Mother’s Day Brunch! The Farm at South […]
I finally turned 21 last month. Something I have been looking forward to my whole entire life. Not just because I can finally accept a glass of wine when offered at a party. But I am finally fully considered an adult! I am also really excited for that glass of wine. Over the last few […]
