Father’s Day Gift Guide

After spending three-plus months in isolation, when every day has felt largely the same, we are taking every opportunity to celebrate. Father’s Day is this weekend (!), so I put together this Father’s Day gift guide because I’ve been looking for special ways to honor the men in my life, from my own husband to friends, uncles and grandpas. Since Jared hasn’t been filming, we’ve gotten to spend a ton of time

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Being on lockdown with my family for the past two months has made me appreciate all that women do even more. Sure, dads are wonderful and tons of fun, but moms–moms are different. Moms are the magic makers, the organizers, the worriers, the appointment keepers, the ones who get stuff done (even during a global pandemic). So, I wanted to put together a Mother’s Day gift guide to thank all

DIY: Leather Bracelets

One part of parenting that I did not anticipate was the insane number of birthday parties we would have to attend. Three kids plus three sets of friends (and six cousins!) means there are times we have two or more birthday parties in just one weekend. It’s madness. And, of course, buying the presents has always fallen to me. But this year, I’ve vowed to change that. Instead of taking the

My Spring Playlist

Spring has almost sprung here in Austin. I am loving the extra sunshine and color changes—like the Texas wildflowers that are starting to dot the landscape. A new season always feels like a fresh start and I love the way a good playlist can help set my mood for the day. These are the songs I’ve been listening to on repeat during my long runs and carpool runs. It’s a mix of old-school

7 Cozy Sweaters I’m Living in this Winter

Today I’m packing for a fun weekend away with Jared to celebrate our 10-year (!) anniversary. Some people love sunshine and beaches, but Jared knows that the way to my heart is a snowy mountain getaway. While everyone else is counting the days until spring, I’m all about curling up in front of a fire while wearing warm, cozy sweaters. It’s something I don’t get to do very often living in

My NYC Guide

New York City will always have a piece of my heart. I went to college at NYU and being back in Manhattan always brings back wonderful memories for me. As an 18-year-old from a small ski town in Idaho, I not only learned how to navigate life in the big city, I also officially learned how to be an adult. It’s where I learned to do my own laundry, pay

2.20: What’s On My Nightstand

Confession: I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. It feels so manufactured to me, probably because it is! But I do think the Hallmark holiday can be a good reminder to celebrate love. And you can tell from what’s on my nightstand this month that February is all about love—and I don’t just mean love with a partner. Loving yourself by indulging with self-care rituals and celebrating the love

Holiday Looks From Reformation

I love a holiday party. (Though if I’m being totally honest, I’d prefer to skip big holiday bashes. Small, intimate parties are more my jam.) Since I wear mostly jeans and T-shirts in my everyday life, I’m happy for any excuse to get dressed up. Breaking out a sexy dress, fancy jewelry, and sky-high heels? Yes, please! One of my favorite brands for holiday looks is Reformation. Their silhouettes are always

12.19: What’s On My Nightstand

As I mentioned last month, I’ve noticed that what’s on my nightstand is a perfect reflection of how I’m feeling and what I’m focusing on. This month, it’s all about reflection and self-care. The holidays always get me a little frazzled. I want to savor the last days of the year, but between all the shopping, holiday functions, the kids’ breaks from school, and trying to manage the blog, I
