As new parents, we probably read about every baby book on the shelf. “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” -- check. ”Happiest Baby on the Block” — check. But I guess nothing really prepares you for parenthood. Those first few months, we made so many silly mistakes that I wish the parenting books would have mentioned!
We just moved into our house a couple of months ago, and one of the things I was most excited about was designing a space for Macks. I was so used to designing spaces for the girls that were filled with pinks and purples, princesses and flowers. I really wanted to show some creativity that didn’t include any of that, and Macks’ room was the perfect space for that.
Inspired by my family’s cabin in the middle of the woods, Macks’ woodland themed nursery is something that I want him to love year after year. I have fallen in love with the space and couldn’t wait to share it with you.
My family is originally from Nicaragua. I’ve grown up on delicious Nicaraguan cuisine, and when I get a whiff of that aroma in the air, I’m reminded of home. I love Nicaraguan food, and I want my kids to love it too.
Lucky for us, my grandmother is an amazing cook, so we get to enjoy my favorite childhood treats often. But if you don’t have a Nicaraguan abuelita (grandmother) in your life, visit a fritanga (Nicaraguan restaurant) to try our top three favorite Nica treats.
