Oh, I miss my blog.
Life with two little ones, while it’s wonderful, leaves me with very little free time. To be honest, the real challenge is finding quiet time to write. Once the hectic newborn phase ends, the biggest change from one to two babies is that you have no time to yourself. I like to describe it as being drenched in motherhood – it’s all consuming, but seeing them together is just the sweetest emotion my heart has ever felt. I know there will be arguing and toy stealing in the months ahead, so for now I am relishing them just as they are.
In addition to my family update, I wanted to share some exciting news. Through the blog and my various social media outlets, I’ve been approached a few times over the years to work with different companies as an affiliate partner. For a variety of reasons the opportunities were never the right fit until I learned of the jewelry brand Chloe + Isabel. I was introduced to the brand at a pop-up fundraiser at my daughter’s school and was immediately impressed. Despite my lack of sleep, I had been grappling with finding some work outside of my role as a stay-at-home-mom (and writer) for a while now and the flexibility of becoming a merchandiser with c+i made it the perfect fit.
The brand features a ton of great jewelry and hair accessories. The jewelry is designed in NYC, hand-crafted, hypoallergenic, nickel-free + lead safe, and backed by a lifetime guarantee. My online boutique (now live!) features my personalized selection (and all of c+i’s inventory) of beautifully crafted, affordably priced, and high quality jewels. You’ll find everything from on-trend statement necklaces, to chic wrap bracelets, to everyday essentials. A link to my boutique and a few of my favorite pieces are pictured below:

PS. Just in case you are curious, the Baby Bump Diaries will still be my primary place for sharing all things Mom related, my work with c + i will only make occasional appearances! 😉
