This year will be my 7th Mothers day celebrating with my little humans. While this day is always special I feel lucky to be their slave driver mom every day. Something I love doing is giving other people gifts! Whether its a small surprise for the kids that they've had their eyes on or a speaker Jerek's wants but doesn't need, I love to surprise people with gifts!

I've already gotten the Mom's in my life something special and it might just be on this page! Here are a few ideas for all types of mama's out there, in case you are in need of something for any women in your life!

No matter what you do, make sure you tell the moms and women in your life how much you care and appreciate them. While gifts are nice to receive the company of others is the ultimate gift, so spend time with the ones you care about the most!


Hello hello hello! Its been a few weeks since we got home and while this weather has turned my frown upside down, I'd be lying if I wasn't wishing we were back in Paris laying in a park sipping on some cocktails while the kids ran around along with hundreds of other Parisians. Instead today I'm sitting at my desk in corporate America trying to see if I can buy tickets somewhere without Jerek going bonkers on me about finances. Oui!



We are back stateside from our 2 week European family trip and I'm feeling super refreshed! I love nothing more than coming back from a trip and feeling like a new women. My ideas and inspiration buckets are crazy full right now and I feel like I'm bursting at the seams with what is to come here at East Willow Grove (the blog and YouTube channel) and over at the shop; East + Willow!

This trip was a special one, it was to celebrate Jerek's golden birthday, 31 on March 31st. It was to celebrate our first year of marriage, it was to celebrate family and love and life in general. This last year has really flown by and many amazing things have happened. We've grown as a couple and as a family sharing ups and downs, tears and laughter. You hear so often that the first year is often the hardest. I went into this first year thinking we've been together for 13 how hard could this year be.



Last year about this time I was explaining how excited I was to head to Mexico, get married, and finally be done wedding planning. I'm here to say that I'm even more excited for this vacation than I was for our wedding!
