It's hard to believe that our THIRD Maiedae Mixer has already come and gone! I have to say that this was the best Mixer yet. From the decorations to the incredible swag bags AND all of our amazing attendees, it was such a beautiful and fun evening. For those of you out of the loop on the Mixer, it's an annual event for creative women. It's a time to dress up, meet new friends, get some fun gifts and feel inspired! 

Last year we tried to make the Mixer a larger event and going into this year that certainly was our intention. After a lot of "life" in 2015, we decided to down-sized and with only 35 guests and do the Mixer to the best of our ability. We wanted to treat each guest to a delicious meal, dessert, swag bags, DIY time and of course champagne and wine! One of our beautiful friends Kate was in charge of the DIY time and "champagne/wine experience" and she was giving out bubbly at the door as soon as people registered. I think everyone felt fancy right away! BTW, I have to give a huge shout out to Kate, Erin and Jessica, these girls helped us SO much during the Mixer. They helped set-up, run registration, clean and make the evening so special for each of our guests. We LOVE them so much!! xox

We were SO incredibly honored and excited to have Minted sponsor the Mixer this year. Not only did the contribute beautiful decor; like our photo-booth backdrop fabric, table runner, menu's and place cards BUT they gifted each of our guests Christmas cards for the holidays! We are HUGE fans of Minted and we can hardly wait to pick out our holiday cards this year! 

Jenna of Gold & Bloom did all of our floral arrangements for the event. She seriously outdid herself and really made the event look magical. Just take a look at how beautiful the photos are! If you're in the ATL (or nearby!) area and need a florist that is incredibly talented, be sure to connect with Jenna! You can also check her out over on IG at @goldandbloom

Last but certainly NOT least, we had the incredibly delicious Lovable Foods cater our event. They did an outstanding job and everything we ate was SO good and full of so much flavor. Did I mention the dessert bar after dinner? OMG the creme brûlée.

I'm so excited to share this little home update with you. When we first moved into our house one of the things I loved about it was our sunroom. I loved the windows, the location right off of the kitchen, the view of our yard and the size. Immediately after moving in we ended up turning our sunroom into the "cat room". To make a long and kinda sad story short, we are no longer cat owners. One of our little guys ran off and after searching for him for weeks, we never found him. :( Our other cat was lonely, so my parents adopted him and now he's living the pampered life and loving every second.

After this change, we decided to get to work on the sunroom and make it a room we could actually use and enjoy on a daily basis. We loved the idea of using it as a playroom for the kids. It's bright and cheerful and it's easy to still keep a good eye on them since it's on the main floor. After a good two weeks of cleaning, scrubbing, prepping and painting we finally got it to a place to start transforming it into a play room! While we haven't finished decorating or getting all of the pieces we want to include in this space, we have made it functional and perfect for now. Soren has really enjoyed sitting on the rug looking at his books and the independence of getting out the things he wants to play with. I love watching him enjoy his new room and I can't wait for his sister to enjoy it too! 

Here are a few before and after shots of the space! The first photo is from the original house listing so it includes the previous owners furniture and set-up. It's a good shot to get an idea of the entire room. I didn't have any snaps of when it was the cat room, but that's probably for the best! ;)

We plan on putting carpet down or an over-sized plush rug so we don't have to worry about any injuries on the tile. Little ones like to throw themselves around and flail so I want them to be able to do just that without getting hurt! I would love to create a special reading area with a tent, floor pillows and colorful lights/garland. I would also love to get some nice seating in this space and create a little craft area. I can really see this space evolving and changing over time.

This was one of the projects we wanted to complete before our little lady arrives so we are glad to have it in a good place! Our next projects include moving Soren into his new room, decorating the new nursery and putting together a master closet space out of one of the smaller rooms upstairs. Lots to do!!

Hello friends!! I'm here today to share a little bit about what a typical day for Rowan and I looks like :) This is actually from yesterday - today my mom is here helping me out and that is definitely not a typical day... hahaha... more like a blessing straight from heaven.

I woke up at 6:30 this morning, went downstairs, fixed myself a cup of Nespresso, then I had some quiet time journaling and doing devotions before Rowan woke up. (Total side note -- Have you tried Nespresso? It's incredible!!! If you're looking to purchase an espresso machine, this is definitely the one to get in my opinion. It tastes just like the coffee I had in Italy which I thought I would never taste again) Anyway, once Ro was awake, we got a bowl of cereal and a fruit pouch and ate breakfast while watching Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. Rowan loves drinking the milk off the spoon :) Drew left for work while we were eating breakfast.


After breakfast was over, we put on our shoes and headed out on our morning jog. I usually try to get us out around 8:00 to beat the Georgia heat. Rowan loves pointing out where our neighbor's dog, Beau, lives. He points at their house and says, "Baaaaaaouuuuuu" in the most drawn out, southern accent he owns. He also loves practicing his animal noises and talking to himself while eating his snack. After we were done jogging, we played out on our driveway for another 20 minutes while I finished my exercises and Rowan checked on our cats and the plants. By the way, he thinks that burpees are hilarious and will point and laugh at me while I do that part of my workout... hahaha. Just what I want to hear, right? It's hard to finish them all without laughing too.

At 9:30, we went inside and read some books and got Ro ready to take his morning nap. Lately, he has been skipping either his morning or his afternoon nap, so sometimes one or the other turns into more of a rest break. In the morning, I spend time working on emails, my print shop, writing blog posts like this one, creating custom orders, packaging, designing, working with clients, or taking photos. Just depends on the day!


Rowan woke up from his nap and ate some lunch and then we went out to run errands. We usually either run errands or do something fun outside the house during this time. I find that it really helps both of us to break up the day and not feel so couped up. Today, we went to Target and picked up some more baby food and some new sheets. And we made it out of there alive and without 20 other things we don't need. Success! :)

Once we got back, Rowan and I played together with his cars and trucks and listened to music until time to take his afternoon nap at 2:30. Rowan loves turning the music up really loud and dancing and stomping his feet. Sometimes I'll make another cup of coffee too :)


During the afternoon, I try to catch up on anything I didn't finish that morning. And some days, if Rowan is just having a hard day and I'm exhausted, I'll just sit down and eat my lunch in peace and quiet. After Rowan woke up, we went outside on another walk with my neighbor and her baby. At 5:00, Rowan ate dinner and I cleaned up the kitchen and did some small chores. We played some more and then went upstairs to give Rowan a bath. Usually, Drew comes home around bath time and will take over the rest of the night time routine while I go have a glass of wine or relax for a bit. After giving Rowan a bath, Drew played with Rowan a little, read him books, and then put him to bed.

After Rowan goes to bed, Drew and I eat dinner together and might watch a show before I start working again. Typically, I work 3 nights a week, we have a date night 1 night a week, and I have a fun night 1 night a week.

Thanks so much for joining me on this little peak into our day. Not every day is like this and some days are really rough with teething and tantrums, but I am so thankful to have the opportunity to be home with Rowan and still work and do what I love too. :) Hope you all are having a great week!
