    Our Gender Reveal at Milk Jar Cookies

    Oh Lovely Day gender reveal at Milk Jar Cookies | photos by Hazelnut Photography & Film by SparkStory

    When we found out we were pregnant with baby #3, I decided this would be the time we would wait to find out the gender until the baby was born. Why not, right? It’s the last time I plan to be pregnant (although I do reserve the right to change my mind, just in case) so I thought it would be fun. But my husband and older son Charlie wore me down. They both wanted to know as soon as we could. So I caved. Instead, we decided to do a fun little gender reveal with just our little family, at the place where we celebrate most of our family moments. It was simple and sweet and us. So without further adieu, here is our little gender reveal, photographed by Hazelnut Photography and filmed by  SparkStory. Read More »

    Shared Kid’s Art Room and Office Space

    Shared Art Room & Office Space | Oh Lovely Day

    Since we moved into our current home almost two years ago, I have been meaning to transform this little breakfast nook into an office. Until recently it was my office, but was really more of a storage area. It was not pretty, and did not inspire me in my work, nor was it a place I wanted to spend a lot of time. I started thinking that my son Charlie, who is into art and reading and practicing his writing, could use his own space to create. So I collaborated with The Land of Nod, my favorite spot for decor and fun things that appeal to kids as well as grown ups, and created a shared art room/work space for Charlie and I to share.

    Felt Balls in Home Decor + Kids’ Spaces

    Hi Oh Lovely Day readers! I’m Aileen from the interiors & lifestyle blog At Home in Love, and I’m super thrilled to be guest posting today while Chandra spends some time her new babe. I don’t have any kids of my own (yet!) so I don’t talk about kids’ rooms very much–but I really love them. So I thought I’d take the opportunity today to touch on one of my favorite trends in kids’ rooms: felt balls! This is a trend could actually be implemented in any room of the house…but it’s so cute, it lends itself perfectly to kid spaces. Here are a few of my favorite ways to use felt balls in decor:

    1. Rugs. These are probably the most common use I’ve seen with felt balls, and they’re perfect for kids’ rooms–soft, squishy, and absolutely adorable! I love the idea of a cloud shaped felt ball rug, and the purple rug (#2) is my own.

       Yeah, an anniversary in Italy or Paris reliving our honeymoon would be nice. Reeeeeaaaal nice. Or even Ojai, where we anniversaried when we only had one kid. But then I look at these two and there's no place I'd rather be. We'll get back to all those places someday. But we'll only have this for a little while. (Although my arm could be twisted with a free trip and abundant childcare ) #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin #parenthood
