MAXImizing the Maxi Dress

This past weekend was a glorious weekend full of no plans, lazy days + fun afternoons with my loves. Literally my ideal weekend! I spent most of it trying to recover from a cold (bummer) but was able to go out for a gorgeous day with my husband + our little botanist to enjoy the […]

Pear + Arugula Pizza

Can we just say yum? Looking at those pictures makes me wish it was pizza Friday! Last Sunday when it was too rainy to grill we decided to have a fun family pizza night. I love making pizza at home. It always turns out better than going + way better than delivery. Our favorite way […]

Strawberry + Feta Bruschetta

Casual Mom Staples
