    Spring is my favorite season of all because the day gets longer, the weather gets warmer, and there’s just so much to forward to! As a new mom, that spirit feels especially vibrant this year!

Though I love the fun textures and jewel tones of fall and winter, I always look forward to spring’s lighter palette. See which trends and products I’ve been obsessing over in today’s full post!

    Bennett’s Birth Story + Hospital Tips

    I’m finally sharing all the events leading up to and after Bennett’s arrival in today’s birth story post. Labor was essentially the craziest thing I’ve ever in my life been a part of! The entire hospital stay kind of feels like a dream now three weeks later, so I’m going into detail about exactly how it all happened. As a first-time mom, there are going to be a lot of things you aren’t prepared for, so I’m also sharing some tips at the end of the post. And in case you missed ANY of my posts prior to this one, I’ll list them below for even more pregnancy advice:

    Third Trimester Advice For New Moms

    The third trimester – by far the most challenging one of my pregnancy! Fatigue, swelling, back aches, reflux… not to mention the influx of advice and questions from family and friends. It’s a bittersweet time of feeling ready for pregnancy to be over but also being completely terrified of it being over at the same time. So how do you get through the homestretch? I’m sharing three tips for new moms in today’s post with my third trimester advice. I’d love to hear from you if you have suggestions or additional advice – or if you found this post helpful in some way!

    Ps. It’s a little bit of a longer blog post for me. So curl up with some chamomile tea, a bottle of XL smoothie Tums and your comfiest pajamas or loungwear (sharing my Soma favorites below) to read the full post and cruise through your last few weeks of pregnancy!

    Thank You Gifts for All the Moms in Your Life

    This post has been sponsored by PAPYRUS® Recycled Paper Greetings. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Now that I’m a mom myself, I’m realizing that there’s so much more to motherhood than I ever imagined. And while I can turn to Google for all the uncertainties that arise, nothing beats the advice of my mama friends! It’s thanks to them (and some of you) that I felt super prepared for this new adventure. I started thinking about ways to express my gratitude for all generous advice I’ve received after I saw the PAPYRUS® Greeting Cards at Albertsons recently. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it was the perfect opportunity to grab some Papyrus Mother’s Day cards as a part of special thank you gifts. If you have mom figures you’ve been wanting to thank, scroll on for some ideas on how you can use Papyrus Mother’s Day cards to show them how grateful you are.
