Sienna Joe Snapp is estimated to join our little flower garden sometime between Christmas and New Years! So we definitely wanted to have our babies be close in age (Brody wanted another practically the moment we brought Stella home) but were still surprised at how blessed we were for it to happen so quickly. We found out the week before our trip to California which made for a lot less cocktails but lots of excitement.Read More
We love 30A – Watercolor, Seaside, Alys, Seacrest, and Rosemary are just a few of the tiny communities along the Gulf Coast in between Destin and Panama City and all are absolutely stunning. While growing up we always stayed further north (Watercolor & Seaside), Brody, Stella & I have found our favorite places to stay are the Alys-Rosemary area, which is only about 5 miles south. Going into Seaside is still super easy and if weather permits, is a great bike ride. However, I always end up shopping to much that it’s probably best I drive haha. Rosemary is where we stayed for our babymoon pre- Stella and fell in love.Read More
Ever since I worked on a real estate project in Isla Vista, I have had it on my list to get back to Santa Barbara. From the easy airport and charming Spanish style town, to the flower lined trails and beaches - I knew it was the perfect U.S. beach destination for our first trip as a family of 3.
Naturally, a vacation with a 1 year old would be a far cry from the months I spent in a hip, State Street Hotel as a 22 year old, so I was sure to take all the necessary steps to ensure it was an enjoyable vacation for us all. Here’s what we did!Read More
Baby tools and items have one of the fastest turn around rates when it comes to new things coming out and old things going out of style. I’m sure by the time I post this, something on my list will be recalled, but just in case you are creating your own registry or wanting to give something special to someone about to have a baby: here are a few of my favorite things!Read More
Brody and I knew we had to be prepared for not having our go to restaurant experiences we had in Dallas (which is still one of my favorites cities in the country, Texas or not!). We love fine and fun dining. Brody always jokes that my Grandfather ruined me as a child because he took me to fancy restaurants and let me order whatever my heart desired. It was a huge highlight of my childhood!Read More
