Hey guys! So I have an update on my natural hair journey! Everything has been going so well. For the first time in my life I actually feel pretty wearing my natural hair. My results have been super noticeable and a lot of people want to know my hair care routine. So, I made a video hahah…. super cringe! At first I spoke in the video but it was making it so long 😂😂 so I simplified it into bullet points… you will see! Video below.

Happy Wednesday BR family! Today I thought I would share something really close to my heart, with you! Edward and I have decided to try and raise Elle using the Montessori method. The teaching style really appeals to us as a family and I couldn’t recommend it more. I don’t intended to go deeply into the principles of Montessori, on this blog, because I am not an expert. I am only a mom trying her best to make it happen at home haha. Every now and then I would love to share Montessori DIYs and play exercises that Elle does! Hopefully you guys will enjoy some of that. ☺️💖 Anyways – into the tour!

I’ve always struggled to love my hair. My curly hair has been something I have blamed for my misery in the past. As a teenager I had to work extra hard to feel pretty because I had no idea how to care for my hair! It was always sticking up in a way I hated or changing because of humidity. I couldn’t let my hair get wet, in the pool, like my other friends because I didn’t know how my hair would look when it dried! I was so jealous of girls with easy straight hair. My own father, whom I love, expressed his preference for straight hair when I was a young girl. This did a lot of harm to me… he doesn’t know that lol but it did.

Today is a dark NH day. It seems like it’s warmed up a little because a dark fog has filled the streets of my city. The piles of snow are melting and turning the streets a beautiful black. The trees are empty and dark. The spaces where their leaves once were – are now filled with the misty fog. Elle and I are 3 stories up above it all… I am at my desk talking to you – while she is warm and sleeping in the room over.

Hey guys! I wanted to do something different to get us all in the Christmas spirit! Since everyone is probably decorating their trees today – I thought it would be really cool to see the evolution of Christmas tree decor throughout the 1900’s! I hope you all enjoy a look into the past while sipping some eggnog, hopefully. Happy Holidays everyone! No matter what it is your celebrating this season.

Hey all! Thanksgiving is tomorrow!!! isn’t that crazy???…. I can’t believe it’s been a year already. Right now Elle is taking her nap, there is a pumpkin pie in the oven, and I’ve decided to share our secrets to surviving the Holidays with a 6-12-month-old baby! Now that we have a schedule in place it can be scary to spend a lot of time away from home. Not to mention that most of the time grandma’s house isn’t baby proofed. So, here is what we do/use to survive upwards of 6 hours at someone else’s home.
