nash charles | month three . things i always want to remember

piggy bank / truck / shoes : rein state

yesterday our little nash turned three months old. it's been a dream to be the momma to this boy.

with parks, i used to update all of the things on here - and although i loved that at the time, i think i am going to take a different approach with nash. my adorable blogging friend, chelsea of 'the girl who loved to write,' used to do posts about 'all of the things she wanted to remember' while she was pregnant with her son, jack- and i loved it. i think i am going to follow in her footsteps for nash's milestones and then plan to spend time (hopefully) completing all the other info in his baby book. (more on that soon- i have found the most perfect, beautiful book / it was created by an online friend of mine from texas)

-gia and the blooms | cincinnati-

every morning, i open my eyes to my sweet baby boy, who is sleeping next to me in his bassinet and i stare at him. and he smiles back. it's the most tender grin; so innocent and pure. while he nurses and my husband slips quietly out of the room to prepare breakfast for parks and coffee for me, i open our blinds to let in the light and it brings me so much joy. 

 i initially started this space to share all of the things i was loving; simple inspirations from daily life. now, as a mother, i feel like it's even more important for me to share inspirations. life with two babies has definitely been a change- my time is usually given to both of them throughout the day and it's usually non-stop; often leaving me feeling extremely exhausted and sometimes even lonely. however, i already feel so much love for nash and feel like he was always supposed to be with us- and i absolutely adore their strong brotherhood bond already. and it makes all of the tiredness, the fog, worth it.

but sometimes i yearn for more. 

lately, i feel like these articles from the website, motherly, have constantly been popping up on my facebook newsfeed - and they have touched me. so much. i have been saving my favorite ones to share with you all. i hope these beautiful messages also bring you some sense of comfort. 

a grateful heart

we traveled back to north carolina monday after a two and a half week road trip. we traveled to my hometown and enjoyed celebrations, my parent's new outdoor pool/fire pit/hot tub/pool house and spent time in cincinnati as well. here are some snapshots from our trip:

a new 'shop olive june'

i hope your week is going well. today starts a new journey / shop and it already feels so good to be back. these past few months have been a really good little breather as we adjusted and enjoyed becoming a family of four. thank you all for being so patient as i have been reconstructing my shop. i am excited to announce that i am now a brand ambassador for shop stevie/her new program called
"stevie style." this new program means that my customers will get access to ALL of her products through my website. i think this program is going to be so much better for me as a busy momma.
