Jogging Stroller Buying Guide

Guys. I’m over at The Wise Baby today talking about jogging strollers. I’ll be writing with my dear friend Lindsey a few times a month (you remember my three month essentials post I wrote there three months ago)… always about parenting, or buying for baby, or babies in general. So if you’re interested, keep an eye out for me over there!

Best Wedding Moments Ever

The Bride and her Baby

You guys. Yesterday I came across Moment Junkie, and became obsessed. It’s a site filled with the most amazing wedding images. Trust me, even if you’re not a wedding nut like me, you’re going to find something on this site that will make you smile, laugh, tear up, break out in goosebumps. It’s just good human photojournalism. Check it out.

_AM spinning classes at which I get to sweat it out to the Biebs.
_the surprise 7:30pm homecoming of the aforementioned hubs.
_hot, steamy baths.
_a fantastic job which keeps me busy in the best ways.
_working legs.
_an overweight cat and a loud German Shepherd.
_friends who live far.

The New R.Simple Life

Newer, better, cleaner. You may remember a little blog of the same title. We’ve moved from Blogger to WordPress, because that is what I use at my lovely day job. It’s a little different when I don’t have a tech team at my beck and call – and when I’m the designer (ha!).

We’ll get there eventually. Right now I’m just trying to decide how much time I’m going to be able to throw at this thing. Because that dictates how much money I can throw at it. And that determines how pretty it can be.

Honestly, I’m not even sure when this is going live. Maybe when I have exciting news to share… or something pretty that deserves to be seen.

xoxo, M
