after sharing some thoughts on my second year of motherhood, i wanted to share some of the practical things that have really worked for us. finding something that makes our day smoother, our family healthier or where we see ellie gain that next step of confidence, independence, or responsibility is so huge.
the first one above, was getting ellie her own hooks. we don't have a coat closet or rack, so this entry way is where we need to keep our things -- i'm a big believer in everything having a place and keeping things simple. ellie was so excited when we put this up! she always knows where her coats & backpacks are (and can reach them "all by myself" as we hear so often!). you can find hooks like this anywhere, but i found ours in the anthro sale section!
