image6 (1)

Last month, JoAnna and Ariel posted their reviews of the CardNest Greeting Card Subscription. Unfortunately, I was not  able to participate in this review because my cards never arrived in the mail 😦 My CardNest got sent back to UK because apparently my post office in New Orleans didn’t like me. However, the folks at CardNest were kind enough to send me a whole new set of cards from their March collection. I was so excited when they finally arrived, and I am equally excited to share them with you all! Continue reading

Ant in his holiday vest from Barefoot Wild & Free- check out my review of BW&F from last month!

This Christmas was so special for our little family. We just moved into our new home in Norfolk, Virginia and my mom and brother drove down here from Maine with their dog Fergie. The six of us spent the day eating, chatting, walking on the beach and watching Bob’s Burgers and Wayne’s World- not your typical Christmas, but it was one to remember. My little brother, the thoughtful dude he is, brought gifts for Anthony Sr. and I. If my little sister and her family came, it would have been the most perfect Christmas ever. Continue reading

When I was pregnant with my sweet little Ant, one of my best friends sent me a really special gift package. Ryan knows I love elephants so, among the many useful items in this package were an adorable stuffed elephant and a matching cloth ball. These toys are from Little Free Radical, an Etsy shop that specializes in hand-made, eco-friendly children’s toys and party decorations. Little Free Radical’s owner, Crystal, is very sweet, knowledgeable and witty. I have had the privilege of getting to know her and can’t wait to share some things with you! Continue reading

SBSGG | New Christmas Tradition :: Annual Ornaments

Since we’re often broke and traveling over the holidays, my boyfriend and I decided not to buy presents for each other this year. Instead, we decided to start a new tradition: Each year, we’ll pick out an ornament together that holds some special significance for the year we just shared. (I know, right? Gag me with a spoon, we’re that couple now.) Anyway, since this is our fourth Christmas together, we had a bit of catching up to do! So for this Small Business Saturday Gift Guide post, I wanted to share the lovely ornaments we picked out and the great little shops where we found them.  Continue reading

How sweet is that?!
