• 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.

       After a few nights with frequent wake ups after his first long stretch of sleep, I decided to try having Quincy sleep in his bassinet instead of the rock-n-play he has always slept in to help with his reflux. He usually sleeps from 7:30 or 8 pm to 1:30, then eats and goes back to sleep, waking every 1-2 hrs till 7-8 am. Well, last night I put him down in his rock-n-play (since he nurses right before bed and I was worried his reflux would flare if I laid him flat) and when I went to bed 2 hours later I moved him to his bassinet. He didn't wake up and slept until -- wait for it -- 4:15 am! Then he nursed and was back to sleep by 5am and slept till 8! What a huge difference! I got 6 straight hours of sleep and 8 total. It's like a new world today ✨ So night sleep in the @dockatot placed in our @thelandofnod bassinet is our new thang  #quincysmilestones #quincyrhys  These two  Also, after I took this I found a very similar pic of Charlie and Calvin from #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin archives - except Charlie is a year younger and Quincy is two months younger than Calvin but even chubbier  (you can find it under #charliecalvinquincyBFFs if you want to see!) #charlieandquincy
