Creating a Comfortable World For Your Child There are questions parents ask themselves, every day. “Should my son like the color pink more than blue?” “Is it okay for my daughter to want to play football rather than dance?” “Are toy guns dangerous or simply apart of pretend play?” “Should my child eat meat if I don’t?” There’s no rulebook to being a parent and at the end of the day we know our children […]

Bless This Mess Parents know better than anyone that some weeks don’t go as planned and others play out perfectly. The past week has been filled with issues, chaos, and unexpected surprises. It’s been such a drama-filled week that I feel the need to share all of the details with you. If you’re having a long, rough week you’re not alone! Hang in there. Every day, good and bad, brings new lessons and growth. Friday […]

Happy Mother’s Day I woke up this morning and walked out onto our deck, soaking in the warmth of the sunshine. I breathed in my favorite day of the week and waited for my guys. Andrew walked into our living room with Greyson, who was pulling a little red wagon planter filled with presents. I held back tears of joy as I looked at my son’s beaming smile and I took a moment to thank […]

Homemaker Chic When hearing the word “homemaker” what image comes to mind? Do you picture Donna Reed from The Donna Reed Show? Are you envisioning a more modern, glamorous housewife, like Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Shockingly, the word housewife sounds retro to many and quite old school with so many powerful, strong, and talented women shaking the ground beneath us and creating positive waves in their workplace, in government positions, […]

Easter Planning With a Toddler 💜🌷🐥 Despite the dark cloud looming over all of us, I’ve finished putting together Greyson’s Easter basket and his Easter outfit arrived the other day. It’s adorable and I can’t wait to take photos with my family. Along with Easter basket planning, I bought enough plastic, pastel eggs to do an Easter egg hunt that morning. I will always think of Easter as a fresh, beautiful start to Spring. I […]

To Stockpile or Not to Stockpile As a mama and a wife I wanted to make sure we had enough of everything for the next month, but I didn’t hoard toilet paper (in case anyone was wondering). I was not one of those people! I always have enough rolls in our pantry closet along with paper towels. I went shopping Friday morning, when everything broke and people began to panic buy. I also went shopping […]

Every Day is an Adventure In the midst of all of the craziness surrounding the Coronavirus and the added stress the media has put on households, it’s the perfect time to create beautiful memories and unlimited adventures at home and outdoors. Nature is pure and filled with opportunities and it’s much better to be outside than in an environment crammed with people and germs. My son is too young to know what’s going on in […]

What I’ve Learned in a Year I’ve been living the mommy life for a year (Greyson turned 13 months on January 8th), which has made this the most important year of my life. I learned a lot about myself the past year and I’m proud of who I am, what I’ve accomplished, and how inspiring my son is. He’s a breath of fresh air in a world filled with negativity and I can’t imagine my […]

How to be a Happy and Healthy Stay at Home Mom I am officially back to being a full time stay at home mama and I’ve never been happier. I still have my own business, Petsitting by Lizzie LLC, but my animal care business doesn’t take away from my daily job as a mother. Any mom who cares for another life every day can attest to the fact that becoming a parent changes your life […]

Hi my favorites! I just got back from the perfect cabin vacation in Bushkill Pennsylvania (The Poconos) for my birthday and I live for my wardrobe when I travel anywhere. I’m also a mom and I’m always prepared for the unknown and the inevitable. The key to successfully packing for any vacation is planning ahead and taking a breath. The worst thing you can do is stress yourself out prior to leaving, because that takes […]
