Augustine's 20 Favorite Books - M Loves M @marmar

I remember filling this little bookshelf up with books before Augustine was even here, before we even knew if we were having a boy or a girl. Books have a very special place in my heart and my life. I really love to read, and while I don’t have as much time to read for myself these days, I love this season of life where I’m reading to my baby. We read books all the time and whenever Augustine “asks” us to. I love opening the pages, reading the words, making up our own stories about the characters, asking him questions and watching him process one page after the next. It’s an amazing thing to witness him comprehend and learn through our reading time.

I’ve been wanting to share this post about the books that Augustine enjoys the most. These are books that we read daily. Augustine will bring these books to me, “ask” me to read and reread them, and most importantly they capture his attention. For reference, Augustine is 16 months old! I hope some of you mamas find this list helpful. Or if you’re looking for a gift to get a new mama, I can’t recommend these enough. Some of these books were shower gifts even!VIEW POST

Happy Friday everyone, we finally made it! It seems like January is kind of a slow month for everyone and I’ve caught myself wearing more loungewear than ever. However, it’s kind of worked with my wardrobe since a lot of my winter essentials can be worn around the house as well. Win, win! I’ve noticed I wear a lot more neutral pieces in the winter than any other month so I thought I’d round up some of my favorite cozy winter neutrals that I hope you’ll like too!

A Sequin Dress to Wear After the New Year

the perfect sequin dress to wear after the new year - M Loves M @marmar

You guys, did I tell you what we did for New Years? A whole lot of nothing! We had just driven back from Cambria so we were exhausted, especially the little guy. Traveling with the little one on a road trip is a lot of work. And takes almost double the time. Nevertheless, Matthew and I were able to have a nice little dinner just the two of us. Although, of course, now I can’t remember what we had. Probably some pasta and definitely some crusty bread with olive oil. That’s what we ate pretty much every night in December on our “Pasta Parade.” January has been rough food-wise! I wore this pretty sequin dress because even if you’re home, it’s nice to dress up for a special night like nYE.

If you’re looking for a sequin dress to wear after the new year, I love this bronze one! The thing I really love about this dress is that it’s a more classic sequin dress style- not too clubby/crazy. And I think it would be gorgeous for any event, any time of year, when you want to wear a little sparkle! Because a little sparkle is always a good thing!
