Coffee Date


Okay friends, this post is long overdue. Why the long wait? We’ve moved! I’m writing this from my couch in Louisville, Kentucky. About 6 weeks ago we found out that the Navy Chaplain Program Scott is in requires him to spend the rest of his studies in person on Southern Seminary’s campus.

We are so sad to leave our community of college friends, family, and church family in DC. We are trying to focus on the positives- being on campus is great for Scott, we have a two bedroom apartment (Allie having her own room has already been SO awesome!) and I get to be a stay at home mom! But our entire adult lives have been spent in DC and so the newness of everything has been more than a little overwhelming.

In terms of blogging, I still want to continue, but one huge change is I won’t be doing fashion posts like in the past. My best friend and photographer unfortuantely didn’t move with us 😦  It was hard with pregnancy and having a baby to schedule the shoots anyway, so it’s probably a natural transition. However, I love fashion blogs and that is what is inspired me to start blogging in the first place. I still plan on having fashion related posts, and several bloggers I follow incorporate them well into their blogs (two of my favorites here and here). If you love fashion blogs and that’s the main reason you were reading, please email me at and I’d be happy to recommend some of my favorite bloggers that have a similar style to me and are primarily focused on fashion posts! In general, I’m not sure quite what the blog will look like going forward but it’s been in constant transition since I started anyway! Just expect life updates and posts sharing some of my favorite things at the moment 🙂

ALSO, if you’ve visited Louisville (or better, live here!) I would love any suggestions on fun places to go, coffee shops, hidden gems, etc! I have a google map and I’m working on collecting suggestions and scoping them out.

Thanks everyone for your continued support!


Blogging Maternity Leave


Hi friends! With my due date next week, I’ve decided to take a maternity leave from blogging. I’d love to continue to be able to write and post up until Allie arrives, but it’s getting harder to devote my free time to blogging (I’m not even wanting to read fashion blogs which is so unusual for me!) So I’m saying à bientôt and I’ll see you in several weeks! I’m not sure exactly when I will be back on the blog- I may want to start it back up fairly soon, but more likely it will be about 6 weeks. I hope everyone has a lovely September and I’ll hopefully have lots of lovely updates on Allie when I’m back!

In the meantime, here are some of my favorite posts if you haven’t read them yet or just want to reminisce with me!

Update: Allie Rebecca Cope was born September 23 at 12:31 pm. She is healthy and we are so thankful for her! She is quite a handful, so I am focusing all my energy on my family right now. I don’t know if I’ll be back on the blog in 6 weeks or 6 months, so please subscribe via bloglovin or email on the right hand side to make sure you get the newest post when I return!
