I am truly in love with fresh flowers, and lots of them. Clearly. All the little corner stores have been selling flowers SO cheap - roses are 2 dozen for $9 by our place! Granted they arent the highest quality but I dont care - I sort of prefer quantity over quality when it comes to flowers. I have been able to find some good fake ones to have in each room but nothing beats the real deal. It totally brightens up the room and they really do make me happier? Anyone else with me on that? In my search for good fake ones I probably ended up returning about 6 that were absolutely horrible. I now have a few that I love and unfortunately have found that the best and realest looking ones are quite pricey but so worth it because they dont die and last forever!! People during winter time would come in our apartment and ask how I found peonies in the city during the winter! But they are fake ;) (We have the ones here and here. We also have one from this brand that isn't available but their quality is fabulous! how amazing is this one?) We are already missing the beach and warm weather and I am praying it warms up again soon. Tomorrow I am spending the whole day with lil Atticus (pending if Rosie decides to take a bottle) and I am so excited I could squeal. I feel like I am often holding Rosie when I am playing with him so I cant really be as into play time as I would like .. if that makes sense. I have been craving one on one time with my boy so tomorrow I have a fun day planned for us. The other day on the airplane ride home from California (which was one of our most successful kid sleeping flights ever!!!) Atticus kept coming up to me and giving me big hugs around my neck and just laying his head on mine for a few minutes. He did it probably 12 times and it was truly the sweetest thing. PS My sister in law, Emily, just started a blog! She has the most gorgeous, flawless skin of anyone I know - she does all natural skin care and minimalism and also has the cutest son and is pregnant with another! So you guys should check out her blog! xo

These photos are sooo cute!!!! Rosie is adorable!!!! I LOVE tour blue dress with the floral print it is so beautiful where is it from??? (also I love your family they are so cute, literally goals)
It’s sooooo Adorable ??
Same for me, I have found the blue dress but I can’t find the price and it seems to be impossible to order it…
Have a really nice day with your sweety family.
I’m OBBSESSSSSEEEDDDD with the blue floral dress you have on, but I can’t find it on the website with the link you used. Help! I need that in my life!
Could you possibly do a mini-tutorial on this updo that you wear a lot? I love messy, effortless updo’s so that would be awesome! Gorgeous as usual, Amber! Xoxo
I will definitely try and make one for this 🙂 Thanks for the suggestion!! xo
I don’t think I can reply to your comment. However we just bought the munchkin bottle called latch and she took it twice! Both times she has taken it she is swaddled. Might be worth a try for you
Good to know!! Thank you so much!! 🙂
Love all of the flowers! Where do you get Rosie’s bows? I have tried baby bling bows, but i love the skinnier more dainty bows and am having A LOT of trouble finding some.
Thanks so much!! And I get a lot of her bows from http://www.freebabeshandmade.com/ 🙂 I hope that helps!!
Aww ❤️ You are the sweetest! I totally adore you and your family! How do you manage to have a real water optic for the faux flowers? I am still struggling with this since I love transparent vases haha. Love xxx
Thanks so much!! 🙂 And for the faux flowers, they usually have a gel like layer at the bottom to give the appearance of water 🙂 I hope that makes sense haha!
ROSIE IS TOO MUCH OH MY!!!! I die at these pictures. The flowers are absolutely stunning, and I totally agree, whenever I have fresh, colourful flowers I’m instantly happier! I hope you have the most incredible day with Atticus! You are such a wonderful mama. And I’m so excited Emily started a blog! She is so lovely 🙂
You are too cute!!! Thank you so much!! And I am glad you love fresh flowers too 😉 Thanks for being so sweet!! You made my day! xo
Did you get her to take a bottle?? Any good ideas to help with that? We are struggling over here????????
Not yet!! 🙁 hopefully soon!!
These are just the sweetest, Amber!! I love flowers too, but I rarely buy lives ones. I have been obsessed with making paper flowers though, and would love to send you some if you wanted! You can check out some I’ve made on Instagram (my website is currently down, hah!) https://www.instagram.com/p/BAaGacmhJC8/?taken-by=aliceche

Hi Amber! My husband and I are planning a trip to NYC in May and I was wondering what top things/attractions/restaurants/etc. you would recommend? Also, your kids are the cutest and the flower pictures are adorable!! 🙂
How fun!! That will be a blast! Some of our favorite restaurants are Sarabeth’s, Joe’s Pizza, Jacob’s Pickles, and Norma’s. I would definitely go to the Top of the Rock (top of the Rockefeller Center) for a gorgeous view of the city. Also, if you go to Brooklyn, you can ride bikes or walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.
You and your little fambam are the cutest! Fresh flowers makes any day better 🙂 and that is a steal right by your house! It looks like you are enjoying Springtime in the city which is so beautiful and inspiring! 🙂
Thanks so much Torey!! That is so nice of you 🙂 Thank you for the comment!!
I follow your SIL on IG and her skin really is flawless! I can’t wait to check out her blog. I absolutely love fresh flowers too. They just make me happy and the smell is amazing! 🙂 Yay for a play day with you and Atticus. I hope Rosie takes a bottle well. 🙂 My little girl was always the worst with bottles so I am really hoping that when my little guy gets here in May that he will be more willing to take one when I pump. 🙂
Simply Rachel Nicole
Love these pics so much! Atticus looks so big… I remember when he was so little! He and Rosie are the cutest babies ever! And, for your blog do u have a certain website u use to build off of? If that makes sense lol!
I’m lost for words…you’re gorgeous ! Little Rosie is so adorable!!!! Very very very nice and cute foto!
Amber, have can you manage to bring up your cute children and stay so stylish and lovely and peace and have so cared-for look.I mean where do you find so much time, for examle, for,make up, for hairdress, for you personally. I’ve recently gave a birth to my little princess Violet, and my life turned round. All my time is her now. So if you can give a couple advice I ‘ll be glad. Or you have to post this question in blog????????????????
What! $9?! Another benefit of living in New York haha
Haha seriously crazy huh?!
ADORABLE photos, such beautiful kids 🙂
Aww thank you Laura!! xo
The pics in the bath are killing me! I agree with you when it comes to flowers: quantity is the most important! XX, Pippi
Omg Aticcus is so big now! I remember seeing him back when I started reading your blog, not too long ago actually, and he already changed so much! Love you and your family so much ♡
I love these photo! What type of camera do you use?
Thanks so much Morgan!! I use a canon 5d mark iii 🙂
Love the flower post! The pictures of Rosie are so sweet! Also, random question, what is your skincare routine that leaves your skin so flawless? I feel like your skin always looks porcelain. So jealous…dying to know your secrets! I have a skin care routine that I enjoy and works for me but I’m interested in knowing what I can do better. Also, I have sensitive skin so I’m very leery of products that could make me break out.
Thank you so much Kylie!! So glad you like them 🙂 And oh you are so sweet!! Did you see my post with Aveeno? I am loving their products! I will link it below. xoxo
Hi Amber! Which camera do you use to take your pictures? And lens? I love your pictures ❤ And I’m from Brazil ☺
These pictures are so gorgeous I love the blue dress your wearing!????????
Thanks so much!! xo
Lovely pics!! I would love to have roses in my house but they are so expensive here ???? So I just have them in my backyard. They do make me happier hahaha I totally get that!
Thank you!! I am clearly obsessed with flowers haha! I can’t help it 🙂
Oh my goodness how amazing!!! Peonies are my personal favorite 🙂 Also, Rosie is such a doll! What a beautiful baby and a beautiful momma. You are truly blessed with an incredibly family and always sending love to y’all! xoxo
A day with your boy!!!! I can relate. My son is a few months older than yours and my daughter is a few months older than your daughter. Hang in there with the bottle stuff. My experience was that my daughter started successively taking her bottle at about five months.
I wish flowers were always that cheap 🙂 Those are such great ways to put use to flowers. When I first saw your picture on Insta with all the flowers I was so sad because they were so gorgeous! Now i am seeing all the things you did with them and I am mind blown lol.
I am so glad you are getting a day with A , i bet he will love what you have planned especially since he loved bowling so much 🙂 Also that picture of you and A above made me take a second look, because it didn’t look like him at first! He looks so grown up in the picture for some reason.
Also if you don’t already have a P.O box you should really think about getting one! 😉
I hope you have a great week and if you don’t post before Sunday I hope you also have a great Easter!!!
Love the lipstick color! What color is it?
These are just gorgeous pictures! I am redoing my bedroom and this post definitely inspired me to look into getting flowers for my new space. I hope you have a great day with Atticus!

Such a gorgeous post ❤️ Fresh cut flowers make everything happier ????
Thank you!! And yes! So glad you agree 😉
These are beautiful!! <3
oh these are the sweetest pics! I love the spring pic!! so cute!!
These pictures are breathtaking! Flowers are so lovely + agreed that they create happiness 🙂 So apropos to have a flower photoshoot with the precious Rosie xx
PS: Your sister-in-law does have the best skin! Will def be checking her blog out.
Amber, beautiful post as always! Flowers transform any space and I love having them in my house at all seasons!
I’ve been wanting to ask, I am adoring all photos you have on your blog and if it’s not a secret, I’m really wondering what kind of filter you use on them. I’m trying to improve my photography skills and the tone of your photographs are super good!
– Usually I don’t leave a comment on your posts on instagram or on your blog but I always wanted to say that I really like your personality how it looks to me and assuredly to the other people who really likes to read and follow your journeys in your life. In my eyes youre a wonderful mother with a great family and a big heart. Stay the way you are ♥ – P.S. Atticus and Rosie are so lovely! – Seyma xo
Omg Amber, I am in love with flowers also! Even though of course the real ones are definitely more pretty… my bedroom is filled with fake ones haha I can’t help it. They definitely make the room setting more vibrant. For valentines my boyfriend bought me 200 colored lilies. I wish they lasted longer!! I also love dresses with floral prints on them too haha my whole closet is filled with dresses.. Definitely have an obsession.. Oh well! Haha I can’t believe how big your little ones are getting.. It’s so cute! Have a great day Amber! Xoxo
I too am in love witj flowers. They simply bring such good energy to a room or for that matter where ever they are. Pozitive enervy. FLOWER POWER. … SAYING FROM THE SIXTIES!!! I think Amber you are doing an amaxing job with your children. Yes it is difficult with two so close in age; however, simply remember to cherish each moment because before you know it they will be all grown up in a blink of an eye. Love and light
Love love the flowers! They are so refreshing ❤️ Rosie is absolutely adorable and looks like Atticus. Thanks for sharing pictures. I also follow your sister in law on IG, she is beautiful as you are.
Oh how special! I hope you and Atticus have a wonderful day together.
Thanks so much!! I love our day dates together 🙂
Such pretty pictures! Flowers make everything better!
Such sweet pictures! I am so glad that spring is coming, the fresh air, more daylight, more time outside, winter always feels so long when you live in northern climates! You sure will have a fun spring watching Atticus explore all the new things outside. I can’t get over how big Rosie is getting already, she is looking more and more like a baby and less like an infant! I can see a lot of David in her 🙂
Completely off the subject question but I know you travel a lot so I’m just going to go ahead and ask. I am leaving for Ireland in a month or so and I am looking for a pair of booties that are comfortable to walk in and would look cute with both leggings and dresses. Any recommendations? I would also like a pair of flats that are comfortable to walk in so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
Keep the pictures of your sweet family coming! Puts a big smile on my face every day!
You’re so creative! The pictures are really, really pretty!
oh my goodness!! I love this so much <3 I think fresh flowers is one of the most luxurious presents anyone could receive/give! x
Flowers just look so lovely in pictures, I always love to have them in my room. I just adore all your flower pictures they are so cute!
I also adore fresh flowers, the more fresh flowers the merrier! It makes me SO sad when they die…I immediately want to buy more. The photos of Rosie are beyond adorable, so picture perfect. And the photo of you and Atticus with the tulips…seriously SO cute! Have a great day with just your little boy <3
Those flowers are so pretty and these photos are so adorable! I am so jealous you can get flowers for so cheap
Love love love love this post!! And also loved your sister’s. You guys are amazing. You gotta convince Jamie to do one too!
Your pictures never cease to amaze me!! I love these. Especially the ones with the babes.
Your pictures never cease to amazing me!! I love all of these, especially the ones with the babes!
Beautiful flowers! And your sis in law is so so gorgeous!!!! Love her blog, thanks for sharing it!
Little Rosie Belle looks sooo precious in these photos, Amber! One of our absolute favourite posts from you 🙂 x
I think this is my favorite post you have ever done! Such sweet and pretty photos!
Flowers really are the best <3 I'd be in trouble if I had a flower shop right near me 🙂
I love how you use the roses. You are so clever and really inspiring to follow. Rosie Belle looks adorable with so many roses around her. Have a great day date with your little Atticus.

There’s nothing like a room full of fresh flowers! I can’t believe how cheap they’re by you – so lucky. Love the pics of you and your family. Little Rosie looks so cute in her bed of roses!
Love flowers!! You are making me want to do a run to get some tulips today!!! It is 70 degrees so hope you and Atticus are enjoying the weather.
I love fresh flowers too! They are such a pick me up. Rosie is such a cutie. Love all the pictures with the flowers. So gorgeous Amber!
OMG! I absolutely LOVE flowers!!! Your images are amazing, who shoots for you???? I love all the pics and your makeup is flawless and I love the Sherri Hill dress! Rosie is precious and your son Atticus awh!
Flowers and Sunshine- 2 of nature’s best doses of happiness! Whenever I am feeling down I go and buy a bouquet of flowers and its just the little bit of cheer sitting on the table that picks me me up. I wish I could find roses for only $9, that would be amazing!
Love that Sherri Hill dress!!
I totally agree! Flowers really do lighten and brighten up every space 🙂
I think this is one of my all time favorite posts of yours!! The pictures of Rosie with flowers are so adorable I squealed! I agree with you, something about fresh flowers is unbeatable! Thanks for this funny springy post! 🙂
Love the 4th picture in this post with you standing in the blue dress and the huge bouquet. Personally, I prefer high quality flowers. I just feel like I really notice the difference. But I do like the effect of flowers brightening up a room. And they don’t always have to be the arrangements offered by the shop! My favourite florist is on the high end for my local area but I know that I can just walk into the cooler and buy like one loose cut or make my own bouquet for less than a fancy arrangement – and it will still be high quality!
I totally agree with you. Flowers do make people! Itry to always keep some at some, but I haven’t being very lucky with the artificial ones thought. I cant stand Rosie’s face. She is as adorable as Atticus… Congrats, Amy!
Yeah, that’s one thing about flowers..they wilt and die pretty quickly……although fake flowers to me are a bit…bluerghh.. ;))
Rosie is GORGEOUS!
OMG! Amber this is so sweet! I can’t get over how much the kids look like Dave.I love your posts! How do you look so rested? Rosie must be a good sleeper.
Fresh flowers are a must! Completely agree that they make me happier. Hope you and Atticus have great day together! Right there with you on finding it hard to have that fun playtime interaction when you have another little one in your arms. But the fun with both of them kind of helps with it 🙂 xo Beautifully Candid
Right?! So glad you agree!! And aww thank you! We had a blast!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Always appreciate your posts 🙂
I appreciate that so much!! Thank you Mary! xo
Oh my!!! I’m speechless!! These photos are SO precious!! What a great idea too!!! Wow!
Thank you so much!! You are too nice!! xo
I love flowers an these photos are wonderful!
Thank you!! xo
I grew up with my grandma and mom and they always HATED the smell of fresh flowers, so our home was always covered in every corner with fake florals. You really can find some that look so real and fool just about anyone! Love your little fake flower tip!
Cathy, your Poor Little It Girl
I can’t believe they didn’t like the smell!! Crazy! But thank goodness for fake flowers 🙂 Thanks for reading!!
So cosy photos!!
Spring is around 🙂 beautiful pictures 🙂 You are so creative!
Thank you!! So glad you like the post 🙂
