Winter Onederland 1st birthday

January: Life Lately

JANUARY: The big event this month? My little baby turned ONE!!! We had the best time at her party and were so thankful for all the love we received from family and friends. We also were able to get out and explore a bit more than normal, which is rare for January! We checked out both the AHA! Children’s Museum in Lancaster and we bought a season pass to COSI, which is well worth the price if you go just a couple of times a year!

Winter Onederland 1st birthday^^ Sooo excited to eat that cake! I plan on sharing more photos from her Winter Onderland themed-party soon! ((Ava’s birthday hat))
^^ I’ve been putting together 10 Things to Do in Charleston for quite some time and I finally shared it on the blog! I love to share travel posts in January, when I’m typically thinking about warm weather on the reg.

beauty buys^^ I rounded up my very favorite beauty products that I used daily in 2016 in this post!

^^ Telling my girl she’s about to meet her new baby cousin at OSU Medical Center! Obviously she was excited! Oh and side note – Pistacia Vera offers the cutest little macaron gift boxes! ((Ava’s: Dress // Bow // Moccasins (currently on sale for $9!))

^^ Craving Marcella’s happy hour // We explored the AHA! Children’s Museum in Lancaster & will be going back soon! ((Ava’s: Bow))

^^ Yay for warm park Saturdays in January! ((Ava’s: Coat, jeans))

Pistacia Vera croissants^^ Pistacia Vera croissants are the best. This is one of my favorite places in Columbus and feel like I share it all the time on Instagram!



  • We are planning to visit AHA soon as well. What park is that in Grove City? Looks fun!

  • I am so glad that you posted about Pistacia Vera-it’s my favorite place in Columbus! Whenever I have company over, I take them there. It consistently is a win! My favorite are the Lavender Shortbread Cookies when they are in season 🙂

    P.S. Congrats on your baby turning one!

    • Thank you so much, Janice! And yes, Pistacia is just amazing – I could eat there all.the.time! It’s such a happy spot!

  • So sweet!! I want to try out AHA now!! So fun!

    • You and E must go!!! Ava was exhausted when we left! Such a great day trip.

  • We took our son to Aha! on his first birthday (1/23). He had a blast! Will probably get a membership since we live about 15 minutes from it. Can’t wait for them to build a bigger place 🙂
