  1. “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn We’ve all come across this message of self-care 1,000 times before. While so simple, it’s stuck around for a reason, because it’s so true. And when I think of someone that helps …

  2. How do you know if you want to become a mother? Is it something that is chosen for you? Is it a need rooted deep from days of dressing up dolls or mimicking our own mothers? For me, it most likely stemmed from loving all things adorable and little. I used to dress up kittens on …

  3. The kitchen. Simply defined as a place where food is cooked or prepared. But for many of us, it’s so much more than that. Food is tied intricately to memory, linking us to previous versions of ourselves, to people we’ve held close, to moments we’ve shared. It’s in this space that I learned who my mom …

  4. If you know me personally or follow me on social media, you know I love my dog. When James and I finally got settled in our new house (about 2 years ago) and had workplaces that allowed dogs, I popped the question, “Can we get a dog now?” He wasn’t on board at first. He didn’t …

  5. Hey Kiddo. It’s me, your Mom. I’m writing to you from the past. The very distant past, actually. You see, as I write this, your existence is still far off in the hopeful future. And as much as I can’t wait to meet you, I’m ok with both of us taking our time. I want you …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. With spring rounding the corner into summer everyone at the studio is talking about how to freshen up their look and achieve that sought after summer glow. I’ve been traveling a lot recently and couldn’t agree more with wanting to freshen up my skin. I sat down with the W&D team last week and gathered up our …

  8. I recently caught up with Brianna Heiligenthal who, upon first meeting, is a total sweetheart. I’ve followed her on Instagram for a while now and couldn’t wait to meet her and see her home in person. Her rich red hair and contagious smile were the first things I noticed about Bri. That and her two cats and …

  9. While children come into our lives and grow up to create their own families, we learn to mother long before these children are a glimmer in our eye. Our journey towards motherhood– whatever version it may manifest itself in– begins with learning to mother ourselves. There was a moment after college graduation where my future looked …

  10. From the playgrounds to junior high, the same jealous behaviors find their way into the workplace or social-media-sphere, even though we like to think we’re better than that, or that we’ve outgrown the name-calling and back-stabbing. The undermining. Truth is, our mature selves are bitter as ever. But only if we let them be. I got …

  11. BROUGHT TO YOU BY SHUTTERFLY

    IMAGES BY 2ND TRUTH

    When I think of the holidays that are the hardest for me to shop for, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day immediately come to mind. My parents and Joe’s parents deserve unique, amazing and thoughtful gifts – but unique, amazing and thoughtful gifts are incredibly hard to come by. For years, I would pour over magazines, aimlessly …

  12. I recently spoke at The Collective for Lab Mpls and was once again reminded how many amazing shops and brands hail from our local community. When I first visited the state back in 2006, I was surprised how robust and unique the creative scene was for a city I had once considered “way up by Canada and …

  13. “I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there’s gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, …
