Growing up in Texas has it’s major perks..and top of the list for me is our annual trip to the Coast. I have memories as a kid of driving down from San Antonio with my parents and cousins to the south Texas beaches. The windows down in the truck, fishing gear in the back, and the good days of beach and sunshine ahead.
Now, as a mom myself, nothing makes me happier than continuing those traditions with my little family, while also creating new traditions to pass on to my kids. One of those new traditions is Lively Beach.
Hello friends! Happy October! Where has this year gone? I can’t believe we are already out picking pumpkins and decorating for spooky season. Love it 🙂 Speaking of Halloween, we have always gone all out on decorating for the season. We love Halloween so much that we host it every year at our house. This will be the sixth year that we have hosted, and every year we try to add a little more décor and spookiness to the overall presentation.
Hello friends! I cannot believe we have officially welcomed fall. Can you? This year has just flown by, and I’m grateful that as a family we were able to spend a little time at the beach to help close summer out. If you follow my blog, than you know that every summer we head south of San Antonio to the Corpus Christi and North Padre Island, Texas area. This year was extra special since our little family has grown from three to four! Although we were excited for a little weekend getaway, it was also important for us to social distance, and feel as safe as possible, so I was beyond excited to learn about these new resort style condominiums on Mustang Island called Lively Beach.
Hi friends! I’m so excited to finally be unveiling Audrey’s nursery to the world!

Happy Friday friends! We have made it through another week! I hope you are all safe, happy, and healthy. Today, I am using this platform to highlight a local San Antonio business that’s going over and beyond in the community to make a difference during these tough COVID-19 times. I’m so thrilled to spotlight San Antonio based NatureSweet.
Hi friends! I don’t know about you, but this quarantine life has really been testing me lately. Every spring/summer my family and I do a lot of traveling. This year that has not been the case obviously, but with social distancing on my mind we found a little quarantine getaway that managed to get us “out” of the house for a few hours while still avoiding the crowds. What’s the activity you ask? Strawberry farm picking!
Hello and happy April! How are you surviving out there in home quarantine? Well I have been trying to manage best I can with both a toddler and newborn at home. I have to admit, one thing that has helped to take my mind off of everything is some online shopping for baby Audrey. These past two months I have found the cutest pieces to share with you including baby inspo raging from clothes to loungers, and accessories to keepsakes. So, if you end up liking any of the items below, I have linked everything that still may be available for you.
