On Not Keeping it Together

Mitch here!

This blog and its associated social feeds have a way of painting our lives in a rosy hue. Hardly a day goes by without somebody asking how we have it all together, which is both funny and ironic. It seems that our generation judges their lives on a scale from “being a mess” to “having it together,” and the Larkins have been mistakenly lumped in with the latter camp. So I thought it’d be fun to share a couple stories to dispel the myth that we “have it together,” once and for all.

(Note: There’s a LOT more of this; these are just a few examples that come to mind first. If you’d like to hear more, let me know! 😜)

Hello! 👋🏻

Friends and family have started reaching out to see if I’m okay, so jumping on to check in, haha!

Disney in 2 Days with 2 Littles

Disney World in 2 Days with 2 Littles

Guys! I’m so excited about today’s post, which details our recent trip to Disney World with Emma (age 3) and Lucy (9 months). I’ll admit that I was a little nervous going into it considering how young our daughters are, and I wondered whether it would be better to go when the girls were two or three years older. But it was amazing. It was everything we could have hoped and more. So many amazing memories made, and a whole lot of happy tears shed.

Because there’s so much information to cover, I thought I would handle this post in an FAQ-like manner. Right under this, you’ll find our most-requested topics along with some favorite iPhone photos. (Didn’t bring my actual camera because I wanted to be present. The quality isn’t the best but they hold the most wonderful memories! ♥️) If you still have questions or want more pics, though, please don’t hesitate to drop requests into the comment section at the bottom of this post, and either Mitch or I will be sure to respond. I’m sure I missed some stuff! ;)

Okay, let’s get to it!

Franklin Park Conservatory

Rollneck Sweater (Also love the new solid scoop roll neck sweater and the striped one, too.) / High-Rise Jeans (Here they are in a darker wash. I love them! One of my most-worn pairs of jeans.) / Ugg Boots (These are her waterproof Uggs, btw. Worth every penny if you live in Chicago!) / Girls’ Dachshund Dresses (Sold out, but this is the newer version, which Emma and Lucy have as well. So cozy!) / Emma’s Glitter Uggs / Lucy’s Baby Uggs / Girls’ Cable-Knit Bear Tights / Mitch’s Bean Boots / Mitch’s Buffalo Check Shirt (Similar) / Bruni the Fire-Breathing Salamander

One of our favorite parts of our trip to Columbus was walking through/playing in the Franklin Park Conservatory. It was stunning… and frankly, it blew Lincoln Park’s conservatory out of the water. ;)

I will say that the night before our visit, Mitch and I essentially pulled an all-nighter because Lucy wouldn’t sleep. (Teething probs.) So I definitely look like I’m about to die; sorry about that. 😂 (Love how Lucy is totally unfazed, though, haha. Just napped her way through the day and was fine.)
