Yes, I’m still breastfeeding

While this year’s World Breast Feeding Week has come to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the last 4 years I’ve spent as a mother. Breastfeeding has been such a huge part of that. I started breastfeeding in June 2013 when our first baby was born. The bond was incredible and while it wasn’t always the easiest journey (more about that here & here), our breastfeeding relationship lasted 26 months just in time […]

Keep ’em clean & sassy

**I received this bib in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.** Sassy Bibs. Enough said. These bibs are too fun and incredible at keeping your tots clean.  We’ve had some good bibs in the past. My favorite style is typically the bandana bib, but this Sassy Bib is better. It is so large that it protects everything underneath extremely well. I decided to put it to the ultimate test — […]

Moccasins That Give Back — TPMOCS

There are a few incredible small businesses that give you the opportunity to purchase native made moccasins. Since they are small and a bit off the beaten path, they do not get the recognition or appreciation I think they truly deserve. One such company, TPMOCS, made a custom pair for our daughter and they are breathtakingly beautiful. If you are into the look of moccasins and have been considering getting a pair for your baby or […]

Raising Zola Breastfeeding Shirt — Part One ((The Serena))

Finding cute clothes to breastfeed in is always a pet peeve of mine. I need to be able to get dressed quickly feel good about myself & have the ability to breastfeed in public because I’m a mom of two tiny humans. It’s a tall order, and when our son was little, one I often could not fill. I ended up sacrificing fashion for function and I hated it because I didn’t like the way […]

For the eco-mama: Finn+Emma Organic Clothing & Toys ((#Review))

*I recieved these products for review, but all opinions expressed are my own.* Organic cotton has to be one of the softest fabrics ever. I seek it out every chance I get, especially for our kids clothing because it is so much better for their sensitive skin as it doesn’t contain chemicals or dangerous dyes. The only downside to organic cotton is that, all too often, you can’t find cute prints or cuts. Luckily, this […]

One such piece is my green heart necklace that my husband (then fianc√©) bought me from Pike Place Market in Seattle and gifted me when we met up for dinner. I cherish that heart. For me, the sentimental value […]

*I received this product free for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* If you’re headed to a baby shower, bibs make a perfect present!
