Chai Tea, my little barista

iced chai

Gray makes iced chai every morning for himself and Ivy. He knows just the right amount to pour of equal parts chai and rice milk, adding ice and of course whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon (or cinnamint as he calls it.)

I'm raising him well, eh?


I am absolutely thrilled to share some exciting news this week... there's a few things still falling into place so I will mention them as I am allowed.

For today
, I can finally announce that I am writing for Real Moms Guide again, this time it's All New! with a beautiful re-launch and new writers. It is a huge blessing to have this job at a much-needed time. I am so thankful to get paid to write about things I love and still be at home with my kids.

So, I have like a TON of posts for you to check out if you'd like. Many gift guides that rock- I hand-picked each item myself; it's all stuff I really do love. I will also be writing weekly about keeping it simple during the holidays (and beyond) and, keeping it real, I of course couldn't help myself and included what I want for Christmas.

I'll have something new up there pretty much every day, so you'll want to check it out for fresh posts. It's good stuff, too. And short & sweet. It won't change anything that goes on in these here parts, and is obviously different content. With my voice.

These are some of my faves:

You can see all my articles here (I'm "Steph" - there is another writer that will be going by "Stephanie") and I encourage you to check the whole site out & comment and stuff!


Huge smooches if you do! If I could, I'd have Gray make you a chai!

  3. Gray is adorable. And that chai is absolutely perfectly beautiful! (I've meant to ask you before about the rice milk because if you don't do dairy, the whipped cream confuses me!! Darn it, that reminds me that I didn't buy any yesterday.)

    Congrats on the new/old job! :D I wonder how dangerous those lists are...

  11. So funny...I just bought chai tea for the first time yesterday and was wondering about giving it to Lucy who's the same age as Ivy. Do you use regualr chai tea or is there a decaffinated one?

    Haha can you tell I know nothing about tea?

  18. heartmeetsleeve,

    it does have caffeine (you can buy caffeine free too) but I have found it to be more of a benefit than not with Gray (better behavior!) - we buy chai in liquid form in the carton!

  21. Yay for new things.

    And for putting your voice where others can find it---in every place you can.


    I think its what we're meant to do.


    I'd really love to see you. Sigh.

  22. Congrats on the writing. But can Gray come and live with me? Getting a chai from him each morning would be much cuter than the barista at Starbucks who barely grunts when I come in.

  23. I'm lovin' the new look and feel of their website. And you're just too adorable on your profile page over there. You and Ivy are an adorable little look alike team.

  24. YAY! So happy for your gig at Real Moms Guide! I know I sound like a broken record, but you inspire me so much. I can't wait to read everything you write over there...and everywhere else you'll be writing. What an amazing gift.

    And can you teach Henry how to do that, too? I'm seriously into this whole "son as barista" idea :)
