So much to share, so much to be excited about. My little family has a new addition and we planted new roots. Many more photos to come and a chat on the direction of OMS. 

cecilia at 18 months

April 8, 2014

There she is...all 18 months of her. I have a hard time believing we've reached this age already. I want nothing more than to bottle up these moments. 


While most of you are posting images of cherry blossoms and green grass, here in NY we're still dealing with what I hope is the last bits of winter. The images above were taken only last week, after being slammed with inches and inches of snow. While the weekend brought warmer weather and sunshine, I have a sneaky suspicion winter may say one last hello. Until Spring is here to stay, I live amongst hyacinths indoors and ice on the windows.

Thank you all for the well wishes and emails I received this week! It's thrilling to know many big changes are in the works for my little family as well as happily exhausting. I plan nothing but relaxation this weekend...something of a foreign concept lately. I hope you all have a great weekend and see you all next week.

A few more picks from that ever growing Etsy wish list of mine.


February 25, 2014

Obviously, its nothing but crickets around here for a couple months, but with good reason. This July we're welcoming our second child, a little boy, into our family. Joy and excitement are complete understatements when we think how our family is growing. And should I mention a bit overwhelmed? Not only are we preparing for his arrival, but we're in the middle of a house hunt. Call me crazy, but I'm sure it's the pregnancy hormones that have my nesting instinct in full force. With all these big changes happening at once, I can't wait to have a sense of calm knowing our family is together living under the same roof well into retirement. I'm looking forward to building new memories in our future home with not only our kids, but hopefully someday our grandchildern. Now that I'm half way through my pregnancy, I feel great and filled with energy to take on the challenge...that is until the sleepiness nights begin once he's here. ;0)

But first things first, we need to find the house and he needs to grow big and strong in my belly. Until then, we will be seeing more of each other in space for sure! It's good to be back at it!

Christmas Tree Hunt

December 5, 2013

It was another magical tree hunt this year with branches covered in snow. Although it was difficult walking through almost a 1 1/2 feet of snow, it's hard not to picture this tradition without it. What traditions do you have this holiday season?

Hello Monday! For those who celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday, I hope you enjoyed your time with family and friends! Now that Thanksgiving is over and December arrived, it's officially the holiday season! Today, I'm kicking off a gift guide for her over at Yours Truly, and as usual, most of my picks made by indie designers. This gift guide is the first this week so be sure to check back at Chelsea's blog for more ideas for the rest of the family.
