Their friendship is so sweet. Despite the distance + weeks without seeing each other; the moment they meet up again, it’s like no time passed.

So grateful for my little girl to have a friendship like this.

How fun are these nails by @misslilysnails {{not sponsored}} —I hadn’t found a nail artist 👩‍🎨 skilled in designs the way Lily is. You can show her a photo and she will duplicate it —she’s super talented. I am always amazed by the process so here’s a peek into how she did it!

Down in South Jersey? Head over to @rizzierisalons + ask for LILY 💅🏼

Oh sweet girl —you are GRADUATING preschool today!

And yes, expect me to make it a big deal because to mommy, it is.

I am so unbelievably proud of you.

You have proven resilience + strength. 

You walked into your first day of preschool barely speaking, attached to my hip, tears upon drop off —and NOW?

Miss Independent.
Speaking like a teen.
Smart.
Kind.
Funny.
Beautiful.
Empathetic.
Curious.
And you may have the biggest heart I have ever known.

I love you baby girl! Congratulations! 🎉 

Kindergarten, here we come! {{cue the tears from mommy}}

Today was a doozy. 

To be honest, this past month has been.

Between an emergency 🚨 midnight visit to the ER for her asthma, to 2 separate dental 🦷 visits to get X-rays because she was in excruciating pain {{both full of tears, no x-ray + a scheduled visit to get a baby root canal next week}}, to a trip to the urgent care this AM for severe pain in her hip {it ended up being her tummy} —it’s been hard.

I am a nervous wreck.

I hate when she is in pain. It is the worst feeling in the world, as a mother, to see your child hurting and not know how to fix it.

Here’s praying tomorrow is better.

Everyone send some well wishes for our little girl —she has a Pre-K graduation to attend this Friday, so we can’t have any more trips to the ER.

💔

I am about a month away from my eyebrow touch up —and I am REALLY excited.

I could have gone to a cosmetic tattoo artist 👩‍🎨 nearby, but this girl is THE 💣. So I traveled to PA —about an hour away. And I am SO HAPPY I DID.

Her reviews are stellar —photos are beautiful —and she knows what she is doing.

Trust me —do your homework 📄 before entrusting someone with your face.

Thanks @bellafacciapmu for making me so comfortable —I am obsessed with my brows.

Because it’s graduation week for these two cuties 👩‍🎓

They may have gone to different preschools, and they may live on opposite sides of the state, but together they got through the pandemic + together they will be moving on to Kindergarten ❤️

Happy Daddy’s Day to Savannah’s  #1 guy.

I always thought she was a mommy’s girl —but as she gets older, I see her as a daddy’s girl more + more {{not happy.}}

She absolutely adores your dance parties, pool adventures + daddy-savvy time.

You work your butt off for this family —to give us everything we need, + I know Savvy sees it more + more as she gets bigger.

Thanks for being the best daddy to our baby girl. We love you + appreciate you more than you know.
