hello baby. hello world.


i have a stunning new niece!! 

i am so thrilled to be able to write this post and to share this news with the entire world!! my beautiful and brave sister brought her into this world on 09/09/13. (how lovely is that birthdate?) now baby makes six for their ever-growing family. do you know what though? they truly are the nicest, happiest, and sweetest bunch ever.

however, followers, this little angel is still without a name. i would love to hear what you think she should be called, since everyone in our family has chosen a different moniker!

here are a few tips to keep in mind:

1. my nieces and nephew have traditional names

2. they also have names that begin with a vowel

3. their last name begins with the letter ‘h’ 

of course, i will let you know when they do give her a name. maybe it will be one of yours! ;-)


have a glorious weekend, everybody!!



  1. hello everyone!! this gorgeous girl has officially been named. she is now known as emelia blue.

    thank you everyone for your input, and of course, your comments!

  2. Amelia, Adeline, Elouise, Eva, Ella, Emily, Olivia are my top choices for a baby girl!

    She is absolutely beautiful!!

  3. repost from instagram @madameswanky:

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
