Trying to keep a tidy house with a baby has proven to be quite difficult. I wish I had more hours in the day and better yet, more energy at the end of the day to devote to the daily upkeep. I know I’m not the only working mom who struggles with this! Here are a few ideas for simple but effective ways to tidy up and declutter over the weekend so you can start each week fresh.

The First Days of Spring

My early evenings with the dogs and Rooney are usually spent trying to get Aengus not to gang up on Keltie so much. He’s so rough with her when they play outside but she’s fast. We have to coax them into eating dinner and usually that ends with Aengus being reprimanded for trying to eat more than his fair share of food.

Sunday Stroll in Downtown Augusta

After eating lunch we went on a little walk down Broad Street. It’s a shame people don’t utilize the median parks in front of the Imperial and Miller Theater but I’m hoping the revitalization of the area will result in an influx of people hanging out there. Augusta is still holding on to Christmas but I’m ready to embrace the new year.

Our Christmas Home Tour 2018

I have thoroughly enjoyed adding new little items to our home decor that will fit into Rooney’s room as she grows. We switched things up a bit from last year. Our Christmas tree has been moved to the living room and surprisingly the dogs haven’t managed to end up with any of the ornaments in the yard! It’s been so nice to cuddle up on the sofa and fall asleep to the warm glow of the Christmas lights each night.

Christmas Cards by Basic Invite

When Basic Invite reached out to me, it was perfect timing! We had just finished an in-home family photo session with our photographer Meg Robinson and ordering Christmas cards to send out to our family this year was on my mind. It was an impossible task selecting just one favorite photo from our session and an equally hard task deciding which one of Basic Invite’s over 500 beautiful holiday designs to use.

Monday at The Masters

There's probably no other sporting event that creates the amount of side hustle we see in Augusta during Masters Week. People will rent their houses and take a week of vacation off of work to cash in on a part time job cleaning houses, chauffeuring patrons, setting up chairs, catering, and a million other hospitality-related tasks that you might be able to imagine. Despite the traffic, the hope of attending the tournament and the excitement surrounding the influx of tourists brings everyone in Augusta together for one incredible week each year.

Scenes from My Evening Strolls

I’m supposed to be walking for 30 minutes at least 5 times a week and to be honest, I haven’t been the perfect patient. Up until recently, the weather hasn’t been cooperating and I prefer to walk outside. With the Spring preview we’ve been having lately, I’ve pulled myself together a bit and have really been taking advantage of the 75° evenings.

The Best Places to Shop for Records + Our January Vinyl Haul

My husband and I have been collecting vinyl albums since before we got engaged. I bought him the record player we own now (that probably needs an upgrade pretty soon) and some of our first albums were from his parent’s old collection. While it’s been about six years since our first purchases, we’ve more recently been making an effort to grow our collection.
