    June Loop Swimwear

    We are ready for summer, well, at least when it comes to what to wear! (Not so much the triple digit heat.) Kaia and I are twinning in our leopard print swimwear from June Loop. Leopard swimmies seem to be all the rage this season and I have to say, these suits are my absolute fave. June Loop was created by my friend Kristie and her mom June, to accommodate the post-partum body. For the past three years, her and her Mom June, delicately sewed each piece by hand. Now, they manufacture their line in the USA. I have several of these suits, and I have to brag about the…

We have the Stork-Chambray style and I love how minimal it is. The fabric is natural and breathable for those warm summer days. Lately, I have had my eye on this birdy. The peach color is perfect for the season. Baby Wearing Benefits There are so many benefits to wearing our babies. For one, it just…

    Welcome Kaia – Our Birth Story

    Spend time talking to your girl friends, mom, aunts and well…any woman who is a mother for that matter – when it comes to the birth of our babies, nothing really ever goes as planned! Maybe I was a little naive to believe mine would go any other way but picture perfect. I had a deposit in for a birth videographer, a photographer coming in for fresh 48s. Yet – I had to cancel all the photo ops as I underwent an emergency c-section. The last days leading up to giving birth were pretty agonizing for me. My body was at its absolute maximum capacity and there was no more…
