Hoboken at Home

I've been thinking about starting a personal blog.  Mainly, it seems to be very therapeutic. Also Trey and I have started off 2015 with a pretty strict running regimen so I thought it might be fun to incorporate a running log.  As I was going through these ideas and trying to motivate myself to start it Trey chimed in.  He said, "just post to the Hoboken blog".  So I started thinking about it and I felt really conflicted because it has nothing to do with coffee.

I want write about my girls, our home, things we like and dislike. I want to write about good days and bad days and the days in-between.  So the more I thought about it, the more I convinced myself that it was a bad idea until this morning.  I started thinking about what I love about blogs, businesses and the people behind them and what I realized that I love most is when they are not separate.  I love to know the creator and the created.

So I decided that I would do a post about "Hoboken at home".

Right now I am staying at home with our two little girls, Harvest and Townes.  Most days are pajama wearing, coffee drinkin', music listening, garden prepping, hallway painting, dishes and laundry doing days.

Lately our youngest baby has started sleeping in her own bed, all through the night and it has been a game changer.  I am back to getting up early (because I get some real sleep) and having some much needed alone time.  I usually look at blogs and drink coffee.  A couple of mornings ago I was looking at Emma Robertson's blog, emmadime.com and one of her lovely lady post had a woman wearing Sonnet James, I loved the dress so I decided to check it out.  It seems to be the perfect dress.  If you know me, you know that I wear the same three things over and over again and I hardly buy new clothes.  I could easily go a year without purchasing a new piece of anything.  Buying things for our home is where I get oh so tempted.  Anyway, this dress tempted me! Then I watched the videos and now I know that I will be making a Sonnet James purchase soon :)

This morning I leave you with this...I dare you not to cry if you're a mom. I take that back, it's not normal to cry during this video but I do every time.

Be brave!

So... I happy cried. I have the old pregnancy hormones excuse to fall back on, but let's be honest, I'd have teared up anyway. I want to make that video every day! Maybe we could squeeze it in between house updates?

Mallory, I love to see your perspective on life...whether it's the too, too few talks we've had, your posts on instagram or here on the blog...I love it. I am intrigued by "the creator and the created" as well, so here - or somewhere else - I'm looking forward to more from you! <3
