So I don’t tell people the story of how I got married, because to be super transparent it’s rather embarrassing. Like seriously. I figure it’s safe to disclose the story since Jo and I are about two months shy of celebrating our tenth anniversary. This is a safe place, right guys?? Like all embarrassing stories, […]

If I had the power to impact the world in one way, it would 100% be to significantly increase the empathy that we have for one another. When I think about the vast differences that we have, empathy is the one characteristic that I think has the impact to foster a world of more compassion. […]

So you decided to link up with another human and now y’all are having a hard time determining how to arrange your design aesthetic so that it’s pleasing to everyone involved. My advice to you? Save yourself the headache and just end the relationship now. 😒 Like I’d actually ever say that. Lol. Not now, […]

I gotta be real with you, hearing “corn chowder” doesn’t make my ears perk up. In fact, whenever I’d hear corn chowder I’d think “corn wtf?” Let’s just say it’s not my go-to meal, but this recipe has me rethinking that. First of all, I’m from the South – New Orleans to be exact. It’s […]

So before you read any further, let me be the first to say that parenting is hard fucking work and it doesn’t hurt to pat ourselves on our own backs from time to time. So this post is that for me. Not long after I gave birth to Cami someone told me “If baby is […]

This is my favorite round-up so far. It includes some of my absolute favorite items- items that I truly deem as being essential. Just seeing this list gets me excited. Some of the items are really fun, whereas others are practical and delightful. Enjoy! #1: Peanut Imagine a Tender-like app for mamas & babies to […]

I was pretty uneducated design-wise about what to expect after having a baby. In our living room we had an exceptionally light, brindle cowhide, a lucite French commode that was easily scratched (and cost us well over $1,300), some vintage blanc de chine chinoiserie sculptures, and other things that were certainly not appropriate for a […]

Several months back my friend dropped me off home when I was about to head inside and my neighbor caught my attention. I walked over to her to chat since it’d been a while since we’d seen each other. She’s a super sweet older Caribbean woman who lives alone and has been the epitome of […]
