Gabriella’s Baptism!

This past weekend we celebrated Gabriella’s baptism! We had an intimate ceremony at the same church that Giovanni was baptized, & where Tom & I also got married.

NO COOK PLAY DOUGH

Giovanni loves sensory play. I built him a sensory table last year that we use almost every single day! Out of nowhere he asked if we could play with some “pay dough.” He loves cooking/baking with me so I knew he would love making the play dough, too. I used my tried & true “No Cook […]

GREEN SMOKEY EYE MAKEUP TUTORIAL

Hi Loves! :) Back for another #MakeupMonday, this time with a green smokey eye. I’ve been trying to incorporate more color in my makeup tutorials on YouTube so I figured I’d start with something a little less bold & go with green. I pulled this photo from Snapchat (@thelovenotes for daily fun & kiddo cuteness!) […]
