I'm a bag lady, it's no secret around here and when I received my lily jade elizabeth bag I was stoked. It's important to mention this is the first actual diaper bag I have ever owned. I've always gotten by with large, easy to wear bags of my own, never liking the idea of carrying a diaper bag because honestly I could never find one that did't look like a....diaper bag. This one gets an A+ in my opinion. My girl and I are off to the aquarium with our bag all packed up and loaded with favorite snacks, books and a few diapers. It's going to be a good morning.

If you don't see a pattern here, then well, you can't see very well. After scrolling through my instagram feed the other day I realized my most favorite accounts look pretty similar. They're simple, sweet and filled with so much love it practically bursts through the screen. I like clean white spaces, subway tile, plants, wood and little ones. If you aren't following these four accounts (I'm sure you are) you are missing out big time on little glimpses of these mama's hearts and lives. They share everyday moments and caption them with some of the most heartfelt sentiments. Always good reminders of the sisterhood that is motherhood and the joy that simple moments bring to the everyday. I've emailed or communicated with three of these mama's and am real life friends with one (Hi Jess!) and can say with certainty, If we all lived in the same city we'd be pretty great friends. So get on over there and check these mama's out.

As our personal home style has really grown and actually gotten a personality over the years, I have loved snapping photo's here and there of 'home.' I would love to do an actual photo home tour but for me, home never feels 'done.' As we change, so does it and I kind of love that about the space you occupy. For me, our house is a reflection of who we are and it has been a growing experience seeing how our home has shifted from a house that was lived in by two to now three. For some people home is simply the place you keep your belongings and sleep, but for me, home is the heart of our family. It's where we are intentionally creating memories and sharing life. It's where we welcome friends and family and where we find the most comfort. Home. What a sweet sweet place.
ps. I just realized there is a plant in every single photo. I may have a problem....
