This won’t be a secret to anyone who saw this post, but…we’re moving! Our offer was accepted a little while ago but we had a couple of months until move-in, and tomorrow morning it’s finally happening. I definitely feel sad to leave our current neighborhood, but excited about the new space and hopeful that we’ll find similarly awesome community in our new area (which is only a few miles away from where we’ve been living the last 4 years).
We had our final walkthrough last night and I’m so glad I decided to snap photos of the empty house before it gets filled up and cluttered with boxes in the morning. Today I wanted to share those photos and chat a bit about the why behind our move and our vision for the new home.
Double denim is one of my not-so-secret outfit formulas. As a mom, I rely on denim 90% of the time thanks to how easy it is to care for and wash. Kids are just so messy, and I love that when I wear it I don’t ever feel like I can’t get on the ground and play with Jack or pick him up with peanut butter all over his hands. Here’s how I’m wearing it now, for early fall, and how I’ll transition it to chillier temps as the holiday season approaches… Continue Reading →
Can I just take a moment to say that I am a major fan of the Mompreneur I’m featuring today?! Of course, I’m a fan of all the moms I feature in this series, but Angela is extra special to me because I have been following her for YEARS. Back when Brian and I were eating strictly vegan, Oh She Glows was my number one go-to and it continues to be a source of meal inspiration for us as we still maintain a largely plant-based diet. If you caught my post yesterday, you already know she has just released her second cookbook (her first is a New York Times bestseller), and today she’s sharing about how she balances her work and family life and why it’s so important to be surrounded by a community of likeminded women… Continue Reading →
Angela Liddon has done it again—she just released her second cookbook (her first is a New York Times Bestseller!) and let me tell you, the recipes look DELICIOUS! I first discovered Angela’s blog Oh She Glows years ago when Brian and I were eating vegan. She made our lives so much easier and I swear 90% of the meals we cooked were from her blog.
That being said, today’s post isn’t just for non-meat eaters. It’s for anyone who likes sweet treats, specifically pumpkin cupcakes that can be made vegan, nut-free, or soy-free depending on your dietary needs. It’s also kid-friendly and freezer-friendly, and it’s a pumpkin cupcake with spiced buttercream frosting so that’s pretty much all I need to know.
If I get ambitious this fall and decide to bake something that is not a Trader Joe’s boxed mix, this is absolutely what I will whip up. The following recipes and descriptions are straight from the pages of the Oh She Glows Every Day cookbook. Enjoy! (And check back tomorrow for my Mompreneur interview with Angela!!)

Remember back when I shared about being part of an ad campaign with Aveeno? Well the campaign has continued throughout the year and the most recent one can be found in InStyle’s September issue!! I feel honored and excited to be part of a fashion magazine the first month of fall—it’s the best issue of the year! Plus the fact that the lovely, talented Kerry Washington is on the cover makes it all just a dream come true.
Even better? They specifically called out my jewelry and featured it in the ad. I could not be more thankful to Aveeno for the opportunity to partner with them and for their support of me as an entrepreneur. What a gift!
