Hey guys! I’m over at (the wonderful, spectacular, and funny) Bridget’s blog today—  guest-posting about motherhood. It’s all the pictures you’ve already seen before and a lot of things you already know about me, but regardless you absolutely should head over and congratulate Bridget on her newest edition: Parker (Marlowe’s future bff). Seriously, you’ll love Bridget.

Also, Hello to all the new readers from Bridget’s blog. Welcome! Hope you enjoy your stay 🙂 Sorry if the blog is a bit boring the next few days… I’ll be up in Massachusetts doing as little and as much as I possibly can 🙂  And I’m incredibly unprepared for anything lately, and have zero guest posts lined up. 
While away, I’m going to attempt to post at least a photo a day. We’ll see how it goes. It’s already been hectic around here and I haven’t even left yet. Marlowe has been running (quickly walking) around like crazy and laying on the floor to kiss her reflection in the peek-a-boo book (no idea why). I’m almost done list making and packing… and luckily I have the awesome, Michelle house/dog-sitting (and making dinner for me tonight!!!! YES.) &Eric will still be helping little M and I to the airport. So far so good. 
Ps.  To the commenter who told me I was “full of shit for letting myself and my daughter drink Starbucks”…..   Really? 1. I’ve never said anything bad about Starbucks or coffee drinking or anything along those lines…. In fact, in the past I have posted quite a few photos of myself there with friends, Yes… sometimes I’m even there once a week (GASP). If you had actually read my blog, you would know I never stated my life is 100% organic. I’ve posted lists of foods and things that I am more lax about and things I will always stay away from. I do what I can, when I can. Would you prefer I walked the few extra blocks to the local coffee shop? Because I wont: their coffee is terrible and most likely also not organic. 2. Almost 100% of the time I order a decaf tea. No sugar, no sweeteners, no syrups, nothing: Just decaf tea on ice (how awful and unhealthy of me). 3. You really think my 10 month old is drinking out of a straw like that? She’s 10 months and chewing on it, like she does to everything. Get real. 
Sorry you don’t like what you see and my Starbucks outings with my friends offends you, but next time: keep your negativity and potty mouth to yourself and just stop reading. 


  1. It is so disheartening that so many people are so threatened by others that they need to troll and attack whenever they can. People need to RELAX!

    Plus, I am pro-Starbucks because they often offer organic choices, have food that you can actually recognize, are fair-trade, and treat their employees well. I could go on but really that would just take the commenter too seriously.

    Peace and love!

  2. drea – i love your style. found you from bridget's blog (she's my sista) and came over to your blog (am now a follower) and i love your home. we are currently trying to sell our house and am hoping for a smaller, cheaper home that affords me the opportunity NOT to work as much. seeing how sweet and simple your home is has made me look forward to our future smaller home.

  3. Really? Someone said that to you? First, I am a follower of Bridget's blog. Love her. Now, I follow you. Second, your daughter is the most beautiful baby! So cute! and Love her name! Third, people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. They need to back the %^#$ off. I said good day. Keep calm and carry on.

  4. Hey! I came over through Bridgets blog and I love yours.

    I really, really love that you've shared your tough relationship with your baby daddy. It's refreshing to hear an honest account of something that has to be very difficult. And it helped to hear about someone else's complicated relationship as I get over my own.

    Also, I LOVE Starbucks and people who like to get on high horses about it can shut the hell up. It's convenient and they have amazing tea. Get a life weirdos. 🙂 love your blog!

  5. seriously drea? seriously?! gosh, poor marlowe. a mom that let's her chew on straws. what the hell.she might as well be raised by wolves!! 😉 😉 😉

    have fun on vacay, sugar! I expect some pictures!! and i hope you get to wear some boots.

  6. I just wanted to say I have been reading your blog for several months now. I enjoy it so much that it is now the first blog on my reading list. You have also turned me into a floral lover. My husband has told me I need to stop buying things with flowers on them!

  7. Best. Rant. Ever. Found you via E Tells Tales. Dont let rude people get you down – your giving them exactly what they want if you do! Your a great mom – dont let anyone tell you otherwise.

  8. I'm so happy that Bridget had you on her blog today. I've been totally wrapped up in your blog all day 🙂

  9. I love your response to your rude commenter!

    I enjoy reading your blog, thanks for not being discouraged by that schmuck!

  10. I loved the picture of your daughter chewing on the straw! So cute. Over the weekend my husband and I took our 7-month-old daughter out to dinner. I couldn't believe it when she grabbed his straw and shoved it in her mouth! (And to your lame commenter–no, she wasn't actually drinking his soda, she's a baby!)
