BLOGGING

December 17, 2014

It's been a while since I've sat down to write anything at all in this space and to be honest with you, I'm trying to figure out how I want to continue using this blog. The truth is, I just haven't thought much about it. My absence hasn't been some big thought out decision - it has happened totally on its own and it has been nice to not really care. I haven't checked stats, logged in to analytics or bloglovin in I can't even remember how long and gosh, what a nice feeling to just simply not care. I'm seeing this huge shift within the blog world (or maybe it's just my blog world) where people are using other outlets to share thoughts, feelings, recipes, products they love, etc. For me and a lot of other mama's, it's Instagram. The IG community is so warm and engaging (most of the time.) I almost always have a conversation with other women after I post an image, whether it be a word of encouragement or someone simply saying they like what they see, and I find myself doing the same to other women's posts. Even though I don't know half the women in real life, there truly is a sense of community there and I'm grateful for it. So, I don't know what that means for this blog. I'm certainly not planning on closing the door and saying goodbye forever but right now, I just don't know where I see myself going with it and I'm okay with that. 

So until next time, have a wonderful holiday and i'll be back soon! xo!

YOU SHOULD BE FOLLOWING...

December 8, 2014

Another rendition of who YOU should be following over on Instagram. Since I started the new account, @OURCITYHOUSE , i've had the chance to discover a lot of new accounts that I'm so completely smitten with. These are 4 that I just can't get enough of. Not only are these mama's photo's stunning, but you can tell that their hearts and souls are into this whole mama thing and it's so, so wonderful to read honest, intentional thoughts about raising these tiny humans of ours. So go follow them. They are lovely beyond words.

HAVEN MAGAZINE RELEASE

December 1, 2014

Hello friends! Phew, what a whirl wind of a weekend. Before I get into the details of this lovely little event happening this coming Saturday, I wanted to say thank you to any and everyone who came out to the City Flea's Small Mall. It was such an amazing day and we could not do it without our awesome vendors and customers. Y'all rock. And so now that that is behind me, I wanted to share another event I've got cooking (along with a rad team of ladies) that will sure to be a lovely little night. The Haven Magazine release party is happening THIS SATURDAY, December 6 from 6-10p at Simple Space OTR, Cincinnati. Live music, amazing goods for purchase (another awesome holiday shopping opportunity!) wine and beer, artwork from volume 1 available and of course the star of the show, Haven Volume 1. It's really going to be so, so lovely and if you are in the Cincinnati area, we would so loved if you would stop by. More details here:
