out of all her dolls and stuffed animals, she chooses this one to love most… the one given to her by a carnival man. 
taking pictures
 “say cheese, mama!”
her mix and match shoes
 shoes. omg shoes. she is the opposite of me when it comes to clothes. all day long. on & off. who needs pants when you can walk around the house with socks and shoes all day long?
she has a whole shelf to herself.
napping in mama’s bed
I recently decided to take naps out of our schedule. It was working great and she would go to bed extra early, giving me a few more hours to work. Today, she climbed into my bed and decided to nap. It was super cute, but didn’t exactly go with the new routine we’ve been working on. heh. oh well, we’ll figure it out 😉
aka “yellow chips” pretty much the baked, healthier, vegan, version of a cheeto. so addicting. 
putting random things under the covers in mama’s bed
he’s cute. I’ll give him that.


  1. Love the socks and shoes! She has great taste in fashion 😉 little fashionista.

  2. Hi there,

    I love your blog.

    I love the way you write, your photos and the food you cook.

    I am not usually a big fan of kids. But I think I love Marlow. She is so cute and I LOVE her name.

    keep writing 🙂

    – from New Zealand!

    • Thank you! 🙂

      I'm not normally a big fan of kids either… but she's won my heart 🙂

  3. hat do you mean she is nothing like you when it comes to clothes? are you not the same mama who brought a change of clothes and shoes in the car for a night out? yup, i think so….

    • LISTEN. FINE. In my defense, I originally wrote that I do that… maybe 4 times a year on my random 'special' nights out. And yes…. fine, I always bring two pairs of shoes… I JUST WANT TO BE COMFORTABLE. You win this time.

    • i think you need to embrace the inner fashionista you really are. crunchy moms can care about fashion too… xoxo

    • hahaha. I was JUST talking to eric about this yesterday. I don't know why I get put into the "crunchy mom" category. I hardly am! I mean, I have a vegan diet and make my own deodorant… but that's kind it. You know me, I'm not crunchy-mom-tastic. I care about shoes… and sometimes purses… okay, I'm an accessory girl, totally.

  4. her Lucy looks so much like my Maxie! adorable photos.

    • she is obsessed with her lucy. She named it after my dads dog 🙂

  5. Haha so cute! Marlowe's world must be so awesome! My son, Nereus is 17 months old and he recently started these crazy toddler stuff…so funny!

    • its kind of hilarious. so hard to keep a straight face when telling them "no" sometimes!

  6. OMG. My little girl does the same thing in our bed. All sorts of random things and we miss stuff and wake up with things like this SD card she's attached to stuck to our butts. It's lovely. And there's nothing like a cup of acorns dumped in the fresh sheets. Nothing quite like that. 🙂

    • I'm still looking for a SD card that was sitting next to my bed! I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up in our sheets (now washed multiple time)! My favorite is the shoes… I mean, who doesn't love dirty toddler shoes in their bed?
