We’re right in the middle of winter up here in the Midwest. Which, for our plants, means that life is quite different than it was a few months ago. And the past few months I’ve also been making mental notes and moving my plant babies around to try to keep them all alive! I have
“They’re surprisingly really good!” ~My husband Non-vegetarian-man approved! We’ve been a little obsessed with these black beans burgers I whipped up from reading several different recipes. I LOVE finding new ways to feed the family tasty, vegetarian meals! Note: Lily did not like the black bean burgers…yet. Recipe ~makes 4 standard size burgers1 – can
Christmas is coming! I’m so excited for our first Christmas morning in the Henesy House with Lillian. I feel like I’ve been celebrating the holiday season ever since I directed this shoot weeks ago. Today, I’m so happy to share highlights from the holidays mini sessions I styled. My photographer, Amanda, was ready to do
My sweater addiction is real, and SoHo’s sweater game is strong! This creamy, cozy cable knit v-neck is my latest addition to my collection. When I first saw this sweater, I thought, I already have a couple creams… but I DON’T have a classic v-neck sweater! How was that possible? Many crew necks and cardigans,
Mom’s Night Off I have been a mom for nearly two years now, and in that time I’ve learned that Stay at home mom life requires regular Staycations. When you live where you work and work where you live and your job is 24/7, self care means a Mom’s night off and change of scenery.
Recently, I realized that we had not taken any family photos since our Holiday pics last year with Kat of Double You Photography. It’s always him taking pics of me and Lily, or me taking pics of him and Lily. And with the Wisconsin weather changing over, I wanted to get some Fall feels in our
Layers, Denim and Stripes… Oh my Fall is here bringing all the cozy feels, and of course, the fashion along with it! I love that time of the year when it’s just a little brisk and you can throw on a couple of cute layers, with no jacket needed. When I put this duster over
A couple weeks ago we did a Lauren and Lillian “mommy and me” session in a sunflower field and apple orchard with Kat of Double You Photography while we waited for daddy to meet us for family pics. So grateful to have some mother-daughter moments captured, as I’m usually the one holding the camera! I
After leaving the Isle of Palms, my very first stop in downtown Charleston, was a massage appointment at The Heart of Charleston spa. Nothing like working all those knots out of my muscles after a 15 hour drive and before another 15 hour drive. What a perfect start to a couple days of sightseeing in
Recently I took a trip back down to Chicago to visit the pop up experience The Happy Place. It’s basically a blogger’s paradise. Instagramland if you will. A warehouse installation with several different rooms full of fun and colorful photo ops! Obviously, I had to check it out before it’s last day, September 3rd, 2018.
Happy Birthday to me! Just had another birthday in late July and feeling fabulous after a some self-care. Almost every year for my birthday I request off of work and treat myself to a massage. Well, the requests off work a little differently now and a massage might not be enough anymore. Since I
