My son Anthony is 3 ½ and my daughter Liliana (Lily) is 15 months.
I don’t, I’m a tea drinker.
I’m originally from Columbus, OH and moved to Chicago after college. I lived in the city for over 12 years and then moved to the north suburbs right before Lily was born.
Comfortable, casual with a trendy edge.
Relaxing on a beach, with a cocktail in my hand.
As I’ve come to understand with my own son as well as with many of the children I style, little ones form their own opinions at a very early age. I say let them have fun with their style and do their own thing, or if you’re really struggling to compromise, give them 2-3 options (ones that you approve of), so they feel they’re making their own decision, haha.
During the fall season, I love sitting out on our back deck, with the kids running around in the yard, drinking a cold beer and watching football.
At this point I don’t know that it’s possible to “do it all” and I’m trying to accept that. I do my best to be good mom, wife, daughter, friend, colleague, stylist etc.…and I just roll with the punches as best I can. As long as my kids are happy, I’m happy.
It’s the perfect job in so many ways, but most importantly the parents and families I’ve met and have become my friends and are all amazing. I have truly enjoyed watching all these little people grow up before my eyes and to know that I’ve been able to put a tiny smile on their faces, somewhere along the way, is such a great feeling.
