• Celebrating An All New Oh Lovely Day

    The day is finally here! After what seems like an eternity, the new Oh Lovely Day is complete. Two years of dreaming, five months of working with amazing designers and a brilliant developer, days of around-the-clock work (I also owe a ton of thanks to a wonderful and understanding husband and son) – it has all resulted in what you are seeing today. There will be bugs I’m sure (if you’re still seeing wonky things after a couple of days, please let me know!). You may notice some spacing and alignment issues in the posts transfered over from the old blog, and I’m slowly correcting those little things. But all-in-all, you are getting a bigger, better, lovelier Oh Lovely Day.

    So what’s new? Well, there’s more inspiration and it is easy to find! Dropdown menus from the main headers will give you more options to search for specific inspiration. For example, if you hover over “Inspiration” you’ll see that not only can you find my inspiration boards & details posts, but you can search by color, style, and season! You can hover on features and choose from real weddings, engagements, and styled shoots. In the right sidebar you can follow the lovely across social media, you can search by topic, keyword, or our archives. You’ll see sections in the sidebar that will take you to our regular features like Behind the Veil and Lovely Ever After, as well as our most popular posts.

    We also have a ‘pin it’ button directly on our featured photos so you can pin to your heart’s content. And we’ll have a photo gallery under new features so you can see even more and pin one photo at a time rather than a grouping if you prefer.

    I needed some new photos to match a new blog, and I thought why not make it a celebratory shoot? So I gathered up some things that represent the blog and me, and incorporated them into this fun shoot with Amy Stone Photography. I hope you enjoy it and love the new site as much as I do.

    •  Quincy and I went to the #redCARpetsafety event today, which raises awareness for baby safety. Saw friends @uppababy @munchkin @ergobaby @babyganics & made some new ones like @thestep2company @showmeyourmumu as well. Quincy was making eyes at all the ladies, but he flirted the biggest with Caila with the good hair (which should totally be her hashtag). And all the new moms and moms-to-be were asking about this sling @mywildbird! Which made me think of a good #momtip: Taking Quincy on the go is so much easier thanks to babywearing and that @loyal_hana jumpsuit -- the hidden zippers make it so easy to nurse Quincy while wearing him in the sling. No one even knows I'm breastfeeding! Makes it so much easier to go places, especially with other little ones. I did a whole post on ohlovelyday.com about breastfeeding while babywearing if you want more tips! #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys #babywearing #normalizebreastfeeding  If I got to take two naps a day I'd be this happy too.  And for all of you who have asked me about this playmat, I blogged all about it today -- link in profile. #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys
       Watching these three interact with each other over breakfast makes me flash forward to seeing them doing the same thing as big boys and teenagers and it makes me smile and shed a little tear at the same time. And then I think about how much cereal and milk I'm gonna have to buy  #thefredrickboys #lifewithboys  It's been one of those days (weeks, months, years) where everything is going wrong. Been up since 4:45 since I couldn't get Quincy back to sleep after a feeding. Calvin fell asleep in the stroller on a walk at 10:30 (something he hasn't done since he was like 5 months old!) so his normal nap (my break to eat/shower/work/rest or only have one child to care for for a couple hours) is gone for the day. Quincy pooped all over himself so bad that we were both literally covered in . And he's already woken up from his afternoon nap after only 45 very short minutes. And I'm supposed to have a date with my husband tonight except I'm exhausted and covered in  and have no time to do anything about either one. Oh, and I fell down the stairs (sore but not hurt). Motherhood: somedays you win, somedays you lose. But on all the days you are, to some extent in this season of motherhood, covered in shit.  Here's hoping the weekend is less shitty, in all the ways. #beerme #battlefieldmotherhood
