Before I got pregnant with Maya, I was the queen of the morning routine, and I loved my hyper-organized life. I felt so energetic and accomplished. Fast forward to six months after Maya’s arrival, and my life is totally in shambles! No, seriously. I’m…

LIFE | Forty Weeks

Forty weeks is a loooooong time. Forty weeks is how long it takes (officially) to make a tiny human. I was pregnant for 40 weeks and two days. Forty weeks is also about as long as it’s been since my last post. Over the…

Out to Lunch with Desiree of Brownstone Bazaar

About two weeks ago, I took an extra long lunch in order to meet up with Desiree of Brownstone Bazaar (one of my fave #BLOGGERBOOS). I figured since it was a random weekday, we’d be able to score a table at Clinton Street Bakery.…
