A Good Night's Rest

It's been about a month since we started sleep training Margot, and I'm happy to say that she's still sleeping through the night like an angel (knock on wood!).

Halloween 2015 // Little Red Riding Hood

With this being Margot's first Halloween, I wanted it to be picture perfect. I tend to get overly ambitious with projects I take on, including this year's costume selection.

It was a beautiful day.
