2016 – The Unpublished Moments & Thoughts

Matt is constantly shooting film photos on top of the digital photos we shoot for the blog, so I thought it would be fun to share some unedited moments from 2016 to wrap up the year.  I spent the vast majority of this year pregnant, and even with the discomforts and my total dislike for being pregnant, this has hands-down been my best year ever.…

Asheville, NC // Interchangeable Straps For Travel

Hello from Asheville, NC! We’ve been making our way down to Florida for a New Years Eve bonfire at our best friends’ house, with a few fun stops along the way. We spent a night in this adorable “moonbeam” cabin, cozied up by the fire. I absolutely love road trips, but the toughest part for me is packing light for the journey. I always want…

Snow Day Look

It doesn’t seem like it’s going to be a white Christmas, but luckily we did get to see some snow before we leave for Miami for a month! It was glorious, and we snapped these on the short walk into the diner (don’t worry, I didn’t freeze because I was not outside for too long!) By the way, yes we are heading to Miami right…

A Gift Under $50 For The Person Who Has It All

Some people are tough to shop for! You don’t want to spend TOO much, but also don’t want to get them some techy gadget that is a bust. Last year I got Matt an oreo cookie coffee warmer, and it ended up not working!! I was so upset. Here’s the perfect holiday gift for everyone, that anyone with an iPhone (so everyone!) can use and benefit…

NYC Holiday Party Look

It feels so great to be able to get dressed up and head out for a night on the town again, after being uncomfortable and pregnant for what felt like forever! I’ve become a pro at wearing Hudson out, so we can still enjoy holiday parties & events, and he LOVES it and sleeps the entire time on me. The noise is so soothing for…

Choosing The One with Bugaboo

Bringing Hudson home from the hospital is a day I will never ever forget. I get teary eyed just thinking about it. It was November 9th, the morning after the presidential election results were announced. The sky was overcast, but the trees were beautiful fall colors outside of our hospital room window. As we drove home, my eyes were peeled on Hudson as I sat…

Baby Products I Can’t Live Without

One of the toughest parts of being a first time mom is figuring out everything you need, and what will work best in your lifestyle. Matt and I are do-ers – we like to travel light, and get out of the house as much as we can, so we knew our baby gear would have to reflect this. Here’s a list of the things that…

Our first month as parents

What a beautiful, tiring, overwhelming and incredible blur the past few weeks have been. Leaving the hospital with a baby felt really.. strange! Like, we knew that this boy grew inside of me, but the fact that he was now here and I was back to old Steffy made it all seem so surreal, like being pregnant never really happened. The first few nights were…

My Holiday Gift To Matt

This year Matt became a dad. In a lot of ways becoming a dad is much scarier than becoming a mom, because men don’t have 9 months of changing and growing into the role, they are somewhat thrown into it. It’s like one day their wife has a giant belly, and the next they have a baby that is half theirs! Sometimes the disconnect was…

Cutting Our Own Xmas Tree

Last year we cut our own tree in upstate NY, but this year we wanted to find somewhere a bit closer to bring Hudson! We stumbled upon Mike’s cut your own tree farm out East, and it was perfect for a day of festive Christmas decorating! Hudson slept through the entire thing, but we’ll make sure to show him the pictures as proof that he…
