Favorite Picture Books for 2-4 Year Olds

Charlie has read many of the same books over and over the past two years. He’s loved all of these books and the reason I lumped books for 2-4 year olds together is because he started reading most of them when he was 2, but he still enjoys them at age 4. He’s always loved [...]

Children create a lot of art and when Charlie was in daycare and created “masterpieces” every day, we threw most of them away and only kept a couple of our favorites. Over the past year, Charlie has really come to love arts and crafts. Now that he’s older, he gets really excited about displaying his favorite [...]


My 15 Shoe Essentials

I’ve only worn high heels 3 times in the past 4 years — twice for a wedding and once for a charity event — so it was easy for me to get rid of almost all my high heels recently. Lately I’ve been paring down my shoe collection even more to only keep the shoes [...]
