Spring Brights

Shorts: Loft, Sweater: Loft, Bag: Tory Burch, Sandals: Jack Rogers (Sold Out), Necklace: Loft, Watch: Daniel Wellington

I shopped at Loft the other day and found some of the cutest things, especially shorts! Printed and solid, I love the details.  Everything is currently 40% off as well.  I've always loved the color yellow.  A few years ago, I decided to buy a yellow bag just because I loved the color.  Although I didn't think I'd have much to wear with it, I ended up using it so much more than I ever thought I would.  There's something about adding yellow to an outfit.  I love having a yellow bag in my closet.  The Tory Burch York tote is perfect as well.  I always take Madeline's diaper bag everywhere I go, but I like having a bag (the york tote is perfect for this) that I can also fit her essentials she may need in, so that I don't have to carry both bags in everywhere.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this picture of Madeline.  She was sleeping soundly in her stroller while my Mama snapped a few photos of my outfit.  I love this photo so much that I just had to share it in this post as well.  She is my everything!  I can't begin to describe how special she makes my every day.  Each day is something new.  She is getting so much more vocal!  Her little noises make my heart so happy :)

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!

Stay Tuned!

Lace Days

Dress: ASOS, Bag: Kate Spade, Necklace: J.Crew, Shoes: Zappos

Happy Thursday!  This is the outfit I wore on Mother's Day.  I love the lace detail on this dress, and I thought these fun kitten heels along with the coordinating bangles added some color the outfit.  I had such a wonderful Mother's Day.  All I could think about was how blessed I am to be Madeline's Mama :)  I hope y'all are having a great week so far!

Stay Tuned!

Madeline's Newborn Pictures



I am so excited to be sharing Madeline's newborn pictures with y'all.  These pictures of her absolutely melt my heart.  Madeline was 13 days old when these photos were taken, and I can't believe she's already 5 weeks old.  I knew time would fly by fast, but I never imagined it would this fast.  It seems like just yesterday I held her in my arms for the first time.  She is such a sweetheart.  

This weekend, I have been going through Madeline's newborn pictures along with all of the photos from her birth (with a tissue in hand).  Her birth photos have me reliving the long awaited moments of meeting her for the first time.  I saw a quote the other day which says, "The moment a child is born, the mother is also born…" and I find that so true.  Last Mother's Day, I never dreamed that I'd be celebrating my first Mother's Day a year later. From the child's perspective, I can say that I've always loved my Mama so much, but from a Mother's perspective, I now know the love is even greater.  This precious little girl has brought me more joy than anyone or anything.  I never knew I could love someone so much, and my love for her grows each and every day.  Her little personality is starting to shine through with her expressions, sounds, and of course, her precious smile.  My Madeline is the greatest blessing of my life, and motherhood is such a beautiful journey.  Thank you, Lord, for blessing me with this precious life.

Happy Mother's Day to each and every Mama!
