Go-To-Gifts: Bridal Shower Wine Basket

Go-To-Gifts: Bridal Shower Wine Basket

I recently attended a bridal shower and brought a gift that was a HIT! It’s, of course, fine to buy off of the registry. The bride and groom-to-be created it themselves and chose items they know they’d want, but surprising them with a gift that they weren’t expecting was way more fun and this might [...]

Go-to-Gifts: Quiet Books That Grow with Baby

One of the things that made me feel very loved during my first pregnancy was receiving packages from generous family members with gifts for our baby. Some were small tokens (like bath toys and washcloths, which we use every day) and several were carefully hand-made with love by my artistically gifted relatives. Hand-crocheted blankets, hand-sewn [...]

Father’s Day Photo Collage

When my husband’s first Father’s Day came around, my son was about eight months old and I was stumped on what to get for him. I ended up getting him a card and that was it. The following year I wanted to do better. In our mama forum, a few mamas posted photo collage ideas [...]

Go-to-Gifts: The Survival Box for Nursing Mamas

I recently had my second son, K, back in March and am fortunate that we have had a very easy and enjoyable nursing experience (so far!).

A Baby Shower – It’s Not All About the Baby!

A Baby Shower – It’s Not All About the Baby!

I remember during my pregnancy and even after my daughter was born, I felt a sense of abandonment from my family and friends. I felt as if I had been forgotten. Everyone wanted to see the baby, but no one really wanted to see how I was doing. I was inundated with everything baby, but [...]
