Lorena Canals Rugs

Good Morning!

I was looking through pictures from Christmas and wanted to share these moments and this Rug from Lorena Canals.  I am already missing the holidays and the fun little activities that come with them. Celebrating Christmas all month long with Olivia was definitely one of my highlights from 2017.

Creating gingerbread houses and decorating the Christmas tree was so much more magical seeing it through her eyes. She would light up with excitement every time I introduced her to something new. Candy cane wrappers and Christmas lights were definitely her highlights from Christmas haha. She wanted to eat these gingerbread houses SO bad!   

One of my favorite gifts was this Lorena Canals Rug. (Thank you Lorena and team for sending this rug to me!) It is perfect because it is natural and MACHINE WASHABLE!! I love that I can sit down on it with baby girl and do fun activities and not stress about getting it dirty. Because if something spills it’s no big deal I can just throw it in the wash! I pretty much have these rugs everywhere in my house ha don’t judge! They are a must for me, my favorite places to have them are – Under the dinning table, again because if food spills on it I am not worried because I can totally just wash it in my next laundry load. The other place I like this rug and it seems most people buy these rugs, is for kids rooms. Which makes perfect sense because kids are messy and having a machine washable rug in their room is purely genius!! Lorena Canals Rugs were picked by Vogue as the top baby product in celeb nurseries.  I love that it is made with all natural dyes, handmade and contain no VOC’s like most rugs and carpet do. I especially love that proceeds support the Sakula Project and help provide schooling for kids in India.

I am looking forward to getting creative for the next few holidays coming up! Seriously, holidays are so much fun with kids! What type of Valentine’s crafts and activities do you do with your kids?

Olivia is Eight Months Old


Wow how time flies!

My little liv, my light, my life how was I happy before you! You have opened a huge section of my heart that I didn’t even know existed. I am certain you have the gift of joy. Anytime you smile at someone you feel their soul with this warm energy. I am not the only one that feels it, I have people tell me all the time the joy and love you flood them with when you look at them and smile. You may only be eight months old but you are an incredible listener. I’ll tell you to do something and it won’t take you long to do it. I appreciate the love you show me all day long. I appreciate how you have taught me to be selfless, understanding, aware, patient, loving, considerate and much more. You have grown so much in so little time, I am so proud of the little girl you are and who you are becoming. Your little personality is starting to shine through. You are such a happy girl, always smiling and making others smile too.

You have a thirst for adventure, you want to see and do everything, you always want to be on the go.

Food is probably your biggest curiosity. You want to taste and drink everything and it is rare if you don’t like it!

You love to feel tall, anytime I stand you up you look so proud, you get the biggest smile on your face when I lift you high above my head.

I love how much you love yourself, you could sit and look at yourself in the mirror all day long, don’t ever forget how much you love yourself.

I think you might be a singer, you love to hear your voice and I do too.

Bath-time is one of your favorite things to do, besides go on walks. You could splash and play in there all day! I love taking baths with you too. You are so snuggely, it’s so sweet!


Baby girl, there is so much to say about you. It doesn’t feel right summing you up in 8 photos and just a few blurbs about your personality, I want to write an entire series about how wonderful you are! Your daddy and I love you so much and we seriously feel like we have the most perfect little family ever and that is all because of you! You are such a joy!! You are the best part of our day, you are who I look forward to waking up to and who daddy looks forward to coming home to.
