Great Books for Infants

Growing up with a mother who was a early childhood educator means I inherently was a bit of a bookworm. I remember loving the repetition of some of the more popular works of Eric Carle like ‘The Very Hungry Catepillar‘ and pop-flap books like Eric Hill’s ‘Where Is Spot?’ These books were a big part of my childhood and also signified one-on-one time with my mother!IMG_8999Having our first child it is such a delight to see Titus take to books the same way! His GiGi sporadically sends these awesom kid-sized board books by Dr. Seuss and watching him engage with each turn of the page makes the little girl inside of me jump up and down!

I have curated a collection of Titus’ (and a few of my own!) favorite board books in our Amazon store. If you have Prime you can get these goodies to your doorstep as soon as tomorrow!

Our Partnership with Legacy Magazine

IMG_2443Starting a new blog platform is always met with a variety of feelings and even slight expectations.

“Will it be received well?

Will anyone read our stuff?

How can we reach more people?”

It was quite a surprise to be received with open arms by the creative minds behind Legacy Magazine, the first publication for service member families and communities.

Dmitri and I both come from families that have served and know all to well the unique lifestyle it demands of those engrossed in such a family dynamic.


Sure, there are countless celebrations, proud moments, and smiles like any family. But there are also a great amount of painful transitions, separations, and an increased likelihood of loss. Phew! That got real!
