Write a Letter to Yourself

Write a Letter to Yourself

Mitch here!

New Year’s resolutions are especially tough this year. And after being shut inside for nine months, I’m sick of introspection. I also feel that I’ve already done enough self improvement for one year. I’m fasting every day, I exercise regularly, I’m reading, and I even eat salad!

So I’m skipping the resolutions this year. I’m good. Instead, I’m going to write my future self a letter—because I’m ready to look outward again.

Amazon Find: The $12 Miracle Glide Thru Detangling Brush

The $12 Miracle Glide Thru Detangling Brush

A few weeks ago, I received a press e-mail about the $12 Glide Thru Detangling Brush on Amazon and I uncharacteristically opened it (because I’m obsessed with anything that’ll help with hair loss) and LET’S JUST SAY I WAS INFLUENCED. 😆

Yes, I bought the brush.

And let me tell you:

Mitch here!

Home ownership in 2020 is confusing. In addition to all the regular home maintenance chores, our homes are filling with internet-enabled gadgets and systems that would blow even George Jetson’s mind. But I just finished installing our Sonos wireless speaker system and today I’m going to review it all for you.

Mitch here!

I took Emma camping in the fall and it was the best weekend. She did great. I did great. My friend Peter and his daughter did great. The whole thing was just great. Great!

Anyway, I’m sorry it took me this long to get around to sharing it. But hey, squeezin’ it in before the end of 2020!

The Preppy Man’s Cold Weather Capsule Wardrobe

The Preppy Man's Cold Weather Capsule Wardrobe

Mitch here!

The Chicago winter is here and my wardrobe isn’t prepared, as evidenced by our Instagram Stories. I wear shorts until Christmas, and this year, Kelly is putting her foot down. No more winter shorts, Mitch.

She’s probably right, as much as I hate to admit that. My All-Year Capsule Wardrobe got me this far, but I’m anticipating a brutal winter. So I went about designing a capsule wardrobe to start dressing like an adult and less like a 13-year-old, and this is what I came up with.

Being a father of two has given me some perspective on just how easy my life used to be. I now actively look for ways to simplify things in the hopes of carving out a few extra minutes of Private Mitch Time. And I need my Private Mitch Time!

I’m willing to bet that no human on the planet loves little animal figurines as much as my wife. So after a decade of sourcing this junk for her from all corners of the internet, I’ve become a brass and wooden trinket authority. And as luck would have it, she asked me to collect the best brass and wooden figurines in the world for you today. So if you’re still shopping for someone who is a total wierdo like my wife ♥️, this post is for you—and if you’re not, sorry!

Holiday Decor: Emma’s Room

Holiday Decor: Emma's Room

Thought I would quickly share the holiday decor in Emma’s room today with a few fun (very real 😉) iPhone photos!

Lucy’s room looks very similar; she’s just always napping when the light is good so unfortunately I’ve yet to capture it. :)

Nearly everything is from Target because I didn’t want to break the bank on seasonal decor for the girls’ rooms… but WOW! I love everything I bought, and feel that it gives the spaces the perfect touch of cheer.

Custom Baby Gates in Chicago

(Two Mitch posts in a row. Aren’t you lucky?!)

What is it with babies and stairs? Kelly I spent the last four years buying toys for our children and all they want to do is play on the stairs. It’s infuriating. It’s also unbelievably dangerous.
