Sibling Rivalry

Having two babies has been a marathon and a half. The victories in each day are endless but it is the sweet moments like this that make the utter chaos seem completely perfect! I love watching them bond (mostly Cece idolizing Carter as seen here!) and develop a relationship that I only hope is close like what I have with my twin brother. Carter, as if it is already instinctual, is showing Cece the ropes of toddler world, i.e. “Cece, you do not play in the toilet. It’s not nice!” or “Cece, this is not for you!” as she clearly only wants what he covets (currently his Thomas the Tank trains). Life certainly moves even faster with two but I love how full my arms get to be.


She has total hair envy!

Hello Cece

Today is my birthday and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than to celebrate one of the best parts of this past year… my daughter, Cece. You see, I tend to look at birthdays the way most people look at New Year’s Day. I cherish the highlights of the year I leave […]

A Boy From Nantucket

The beautiful island of Nantucket has a special place in my heart. It has the ability to make me feel away and in a place where time seems to not matter. We took our first family vacation as a family of four. It was a crazy dash to the Hyannis ferry from Carter getting car sick to the parking being sold out. Needless to say we sunk right into island life the moment we felt the ocean air from the back sun deck of the ferry. Carter can’t get enough of being on the water. I suppose he gets that from me. xx

The Beautiful Twos

My petit prince turned two today! It has been bitter sweet to see Carter grow but it has been the most incredible two years. He is full of life, endless giggles, hair that makes Patrick Dempsey swoon and most of all… love. The “terrible twos” are in fact the most beautiful when it comes to him.

DIY Heart Photo Backdrop

Get ready to paint the town red in napkins! For my photo shoot this weekend I made a heart backdrop to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I must admit I can’t believe January is over, but then again, I know why things are a bit of a blur lately. Don’t forget to spoil the ones you love. (then […]

Ode to Being a Twin

This past week I, or rather “we”, celebrated our birthday. Yes, I am a twin. I have had the incredible gift of both a twin brother and a best friend to share life’s experiences with since day 1. As we make a wish in the anticipation of what lies ahead and toast to the year we leave behind, I find myself each year feeling more and more lucky to have been brought into this world together. This one is for you, Thomas… xo
