Tis’ the season to give gifts to those you love the most! Shopping for others can be difficult, especially when it comes to children. Many family members in our life have asked that we do not get their kids toys. This can make shopping hard but I think a great option is a meaningful book.
A book is a great gift for kids because most kids love to be read to or love to look at the pictures in the books. Couple that with a book that is ABOUT them and their lives and you have a winning combo! That is exactly what the Wonderbly books offer.
These unique books are personalized to each child which makes them such a special keepsake and a fun gift.
Marley’s book is called The Little Girl Who Lost Her Name and it is available on Amazon just in time for Christmas! We loved this book because it is about a little girl who goes on an adventure to find her name. The book eventually spells out the letters of the child’s name. Marley loved the bright pictures and the pages were very thick (not so easy to rip!) so the quality was fantastic. This can be personalized for a boy or for a girl.
Kellan’s Wonderbly book is called The Christmas Snowflake and it is also available on Amazon for purchase. This book is so special this time of year and it was personalized to include our entire family. We were able to choose NINE family members to include in the book that help the snowflake find his way home. The book even comes with a special keepsake ornament that we hung on our tree (which you can see above the book).
Books are such a great gift whether it’s for Christmas, a birthday, or even just because! Promoting children’s reading by including them in the story not only helps them learn but also makes it fun!

Fall is most definitely here on the East Coast! There is a crispness in the air in the morning that is lingering into the afternoons. Leaves have changed and are starting to fall and we are spending our Sunday’s glued to the TV watching football! There is no better time than the present to talk about that transitional fall jacket.
One of my favorite fall clothing staples is a great jacket! One that you can throw on in the morning, afternoon or evening and it provides enough warmth while out and about. It’s not cold enough yet in Upstate New York for a full blown winter coat (although that time is coming…) so I want to share some of my favorite light weight jackets this season!
I’ve found some adorable options that can be worn year after year! So let’s get started . . .
This Northface Pink Jacket is so awesome! I’ve been living in it all fall. I love the bright color which is not something I typically pick out. It is perfect to throw on for a quick run (not too heavy) or just a trip to target, I even wore it on a chilly night in August to a concert!
Another go to store for me is Old Navy! This Old Navy jean jacket is so perfect and light weight! I’m always on the hunt for good basics such as this that I think can be worn year round and dressed up or down. I love that Old Navy offers affordable cute options!
I think a good leather jacket is a must in every girl’s closet! I have had this leather Jacket for a few months, I love it! It is great to throw on for a night out and it is a little “edgier” than something I normally go with.
A few other great options you can’t go wrong with this fall is a good trench coat & pea coat! These are such classics that never go out of style, many of these options can be worn in the spring as well.
I love when others share the inspiration behind their children’s rooms. Creating a special space for your little one can be hard, but is so worth it! To be honest, if I could get a job exclusively designing nurseries, that’d be ideal 😂
I love finding unique pieces or making something old new again. I also spend a lot of time just browsing small shops for different items (much to my husband’s dismay).
Marley’s room is one of my favorite spots in our home. When she was just a babe in my belly I knew I wanted her nursery to be a dreamy little girl room but not TOO girly. I incorporated greys, metals, dark purples and pinks to complete the look. I wanted a lot of these items to be able to transition to a “big girl” room and I think they will!
Marley is almost 17 months old so I know before long we will be updating this space to a “big girl” room. I’m not sure what the plan will be when that time comes but I know a lot of these items are transitional.
I splurged on items I felt made the space complete but also saved on larger items such as the dresser and nightstand. We also reused the babyletto crib that was Kellan’s. Some items I splurged on were the West Elm wire wall rack (similar), Bla Bla knit doll and the the giraffe print.
