Greenville has really upped the anty on their coffee situation. It’s about time I updated my “6 Must Visit Coffee Shops in Greenville” post. It’s more like…12 now!! I am recently loving Caviar and Bananas. The decor is on point, the cappucinos are delicious, and their food is out of this world. It’s the perfect little spot to grab a cup of coffee and get some work done, or meet girlfriends for salads or sandwiches, and a glass of wine in the evening. If you live in Greenville, you must check them out! And if you’re local to Charleston, they have a location there as well.

Piper at 15 Months

Piper at 15 months

jessi nichols photography

It’s amazing how much Piper has grown and changed in just the last few months. Her vocabulary has expanded tremendously, and she is communicating more and more. She signs milk, all done, please, dog, and more. She says mama, dada, thank you, papa, naenae (aka “grandma”), ball, baby, night night, hi, bye, dog, uh-oh and no. She walks, or runs rather, can point to a few different body parts, and can make a couple of animal noises.

She loves her baby dolls. I think one of my favorite moments was watching her pull down a dish towel from the oven, wrap her baby doll in it like a blanket, and then carry it around and rock her, just like we have always done with her. It’s amazing to me how much she seems to understand and how much she is learning at this point.

As far as meal time is concerned, fruit is, of course, a big hit. She loves bananas, applesauce, and particularly berries…all the berries. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries…any variety really. She eats a lot of greek yogurt, avocado, and sweet potato. She’s just started eating broccoli, but she hates eggs. Getting her to drink milk has also been a struggle, which I think in large part is related to the fact that she is still nursing. That girl signs “milk” at me and wants to nurse all.day.long. I try to keep nursing just to the morning and the evening, but I am quickly realizing that fully weaning her is going to be rough.

She’s decided to start expressing her independence around mealtime and throws the food she’s not interested in on the floor. She’s also started throwing tantrums, which is a whole new category for us (send tips, or help, anything…). I’ve honestly felt a little lost in how to handle and parent through them. So we’re definitely learning a lot more as parents through this stage.

Poncho Weather

This South Carolina weather seriously cannot make up it’s mind. One day it’s below freezing and snowing, and the next day it is 75 degrees and sunny out! I’m not going to lie though, I kind of love it. I’m definitely a warm weather kind of girl, and when my husband makes fun of me for always using a heating pad on the couch, I reply “warmth is happiness.”

This look is from one of those ‘colder’ days here in the south. A poncho is perfect for winter weather here in Greenville. Its warm enough to wear outside without having to wear a heavy coat awkwardly over it. Sadly this one is sold out, but I’ve linked some similar ones below! Also, I am living in these boots lately! I’ll even pair them with a simple, relaxed sweater and instantly feel more put together!

I hope your week is off to a great start. Happy Monday, friends!

Our Wintry Front Porch

I’m finally getting around to sharing our wintry front porch decor! I planned to share it a while ago, but sheesh – sometimes time just gets away from you! So even though my mind is thinking towards spring and warm weather, I still wanted to share some of our winter decor on the blog.

My sweet mother-in-law actually decorated our porch in time for Piper’s first birthday party, as a birthday gift to me (Piper’s birthday is just a day before mine!). She captured my style and vision perfectly. It is simple, with a lot of greenery and gold, just how I like it :). And can you believe she put together that amazing magnolia wreath from scratch!? Obsessed. Sadly, it is no longer with us, but it was beautiful all through the holiday season!

I love how our porch transitioned perfectly from fall, to Christmas, to a January winter. In November we had gold spray painted pumpkins, both big and small, and pinecones. For Christmas we added the garland and threw out the pumpkins (they were rotting – whoops), and then for January we’ve taken down the garland again and sadly said goodbye to our wreath.

I’ve never given much thought to the exterior decor of our house, because I am always working on the inside, but after this little project I might be hooked. Already thinking through plans for a spring front porch!
