Without trying to sound like I’m living out my Oprah fantasies in sharing my favorite things with you! and you! and you!, I honestly have a big list of favorite products that come from inspiring women and projects and brands I’m so happy to stand behind and very excited share! This little roundup is truly my favorite things in a square that I hope brings you the extra happiness they’ve each brought to me. You may even still have time to order gifts (treat yourself, mama!) just in time for the holidays because heaven knows you all deserve it.
If a good life must include sharing our stories and hearts (it must!), start here with the ultimate love and heartache and the honest, miraculous journey to motherhood with twins.

Preparing to bring home a new baby is one of the most exciting times of a new mama and dad’s life, coupled with plenty of anticipation, a little bit of worry, and a whole lot of wonder!

Read her tips and top essentials and then take that deep breath after trusting her parenting mantra, “everything is just a phase.” You’re ready for this, mama!
