Remembering the Little Things + Our Favorite Diapering Products

I have a pretty bad memory. I’m not sure if it’s just my personality, if it’s because I generally have my head in the clouds (or my nose in a book), or if it might even be related to my vision problems, but I just don’t remember things that other people seem to recall with ease. I try not to let that bother me too much, but as a new mom I really want to hold onto as many memories of my son as possible.

Going Greenery (Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year)

A few years ago, my mom told me about Pantone's tradition of choosing a Color of the Year. Since then, I've gotten a kick out of seeing what their selection is each year. For 2016, they chose a dual shade for the first time. This year, they went back to a single color--a bright yellow-green called Greenery.
