great expectations

It's fitting that I created this blog when I was pregnant 3 years ago with my son, Noam. And now, after a little bit of a break, I'm returning during my second pregnancy.

my motherhood story

Over a year ago, I had the opportunity to spend a day with Victoria from My Motherhood Storybook. She took some of the most incredibly beautiful photos of me and Noam that quickly became prized possessions for me, and I'm sharing a few of my favorites here.



bitte books

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Bitte and their curated selection of clothing, toys and books for babies and children. I've been purchasing books from them since they first launched, and have founded up some of my favorites right here.
