Let me preface this post by saying that the holiday season is, without a doubt, my favorite time of year. I love everything about it. The sights, the smells, the sounds - literally everything. The sights - the twinkling lights, the presents under the tree, the stockings with all my family members' names, the smiles. Ahhh.. the smiles. Then... the smells. The cookies baking in the oven, the sweet smell of pine needles, the spicy scent of cinnamon pine cones galore. I love it ALL!
Whenever anyone I know needs to buy a new mom a gift - without fail - they come to me. 3 pregnancies in the past 4 years will do that to you. With so many people I know having babies, I figured it would be the perfect time to put together this little Gift Guide: For The New Mom. These gifts aren't just for the holidays... really whenever someone you know has a new baby... this is where you'll want to start!
My first purse - ever - was a Dooney & Bourke bucket bag that my mom gifted to me. My whole life, the brand was one of my mom's favorites. It actually originated in Norwalk, Connecticut - a small town about 10 minutes from where I grew up. As I said, my mom always loved Dooney & Bourke, and I have had a soft spot for their leather goods EVER since.
This time of year we try to get outside as much as we can. We know that the super cold Tahoe winters are coming in fast (we actually got a dusting of snow this morning!!) and as soon as the REAL snow starts to fall, getting the whole family outside can be a little bit difficult.
Snow boots are my nemesis - Mommas... who is with me?!?Read More
