baby on a plane: the last of the photos from phoenix

Last week, Dave, Alice, and I went to Phoenix to stay for a week with my grandpa and his wife and take a little break.
We didn’t do a ton of sightseeing.
We didn’t do much shopping.
We did a lot of eating, visiting family, and relaxing.
(And we spent some time in traffic.)
Here are a few pictures from the plane and a few more from our stay in Phoenix.






We hope to go back to Phoenix next year and check out the vintage shops that I heard so much about. It was a beautiful trip and we loved the city.
See all photos on Daily Alice.

What’ I’ve Learned: Marketing on Blogs and Social Media in 2014

Barbara Soderlin, a reporter for the Omaha-World Herald, recently contacted me for some comment about local companies advertising with bloggers in Omaha and we ended up having a really rich discussion about the changing landscape of online advertising in an age of social media. She had seen me post on Facebook about the decline of blogs as the epicenter of reader engagement in favor of other platforms that ask a little less of its users.

New at Hello Holiday: Dear Creatures Fall!

Dear Creatures is by far a favorite brand for our customers. I’m excited about every new piece we have from this LA-based husband/wife designer duo. Bianca and Rob describe their line as “visual optimism,” and I love how they blend their expert understanding of decades past with the sensibilities and whimsy of the modern woman.

OOTD: Dress of my Witchy Dreams

This dress fulfills everything I could ever ask of a garment destined to be a workhorse in my closet for years to come. Tiny gold round buttons at the cuffs and on the back, irregular pleating, and my favorite silhouette. I feel beautiful in this breezy black dress and I think it’s one of the…

OOTD: Extra Sprinkles

Right down the street from our downtown office is Pettit's Pastry, a 60-year-old downtown institution that still makes the best glazed old-fashioned donuts in the city. The original signs outside on the corner of 16th and Cass match the kitchy decor inside, where vintage bakery cases are packed with fresh and delicious donuts and pastries of all types. Seasonally decorated cookies and cakes, donuts with every filling and topping, and flaky krispies and pies fill the air with the aroma of sweetness, fryer grease, and childhood memories.

Alice’s Fall: Pumpkin Patch

As a single parent, I put a lot of effort into building new traditions with Alice and trying to find ways to create happy memories that she will be able to look back on in the future when times are harder. When so many old traditions I loved are a thing of the past, I work hard to make new magical moments of peace and joy that bind Alice and I together as a family unit of our own. It's hard for me to look forward into a future of Just Us, but making things normal for her is sort of the goal. Last week we went to the pumpkin patch, one of those Omaha Things You Do where you are likely to see five or six people you know as you walk around enjoying all of the kid-friendly attractions on a crisp autumn evening after work. I forgot to take photos with the actual pumpkins, which is actually a good sign...we were having so much fun, it was more about the experience than the documenting of it.
