Putting the Posh in Playroom

When my daughter was first born, I had a vision of grandeur in my head. I wanted her to have the best things but I also need them to be somewhat… dare I use the word… practical. I don’t know how practical a house inside of a house is, but I went for it. I think the result was amazing.

Aria means Lion(ness) of God

It’s true. That’s one of the reasons why we chose the name for strength and (girl) power. Fearlessness. And friends let me tell you that in her almost 19 months of life, she has certainly lived up to the name. Especially for me because I. am. depressed.

Anatomy of an Enchanted Nursery

So it’s about to be Mommy time again, for the second time. My next baby girl, Satiah Harlow, is due to join us in a few short months and I have been a nesting beast. Like her big sister Aria’s room, hers had to be absolutely perfect. But what to do? What was my theme? Her room was my old “shoe room” (I told ya’ll I was impractical, so yes, I had a whole room for my shoes and purses). But with the impending arrival of my little Pixie, I had to let – that- go. Sigh. So in my head, the “new” room had to be just as magical as the last. And then there it was, like… well… magic. It was going to be an enchanted nursery, with stars and clouds and fairies. So away to plan I went.

Year in Review… Where Did the Time Go?

You guys… what a year! And what in the time warp? My daughter, Aria, turned one and I can hardly believe the transformation that she’s made in just that short a time. I know people say time flies but I literally just gave birth to her yesterday. How is she already a year old? Well, over the year, as you know, I’ve given here a different career every month to encourage her to imagine, play and dream big. Here’s that year in review.

Aria in Onederland

My Bug just turned one and let me tell you, what an event it was. I had the most fun celebrating her and with her. As a crafty, EXTRA, mom (I told ya’ll I’m very extra) I had to everything and do everything big.

Good Morning Toes

I think as a parent, it’s extremely important to teach our kids that the sky is the limit. They can be anything that they can dream. So each and every month, I put my daughter into a different profession so that one day she can look back and see just where her imagination can take her. She’s 11-months-old now and in that same spirit, I made her a writer. As a matter of fact – since shes been born, we’ve been working on a book that highlights our cute morning routine. Every morning we stretch and play before we start our day, so I invite you to explore her very first published work, Good Morning Toes. Pre-order yours today!
