Travel, Motherhood, and City Life with a Baby

Life Lately

Life Lately

Life’s been a series of up and downs lately. I feel like there’s just never enough time to get things done. Milo has been having a huge sleep regression and it’s been hard on me. I love spending my days with him, but I’m also feeling super motivated by work and it’s just hard to find time for it all — and time to take care of myself. How do people do it? I’m currently looking for a little extra help a few hours a week, and I think that should make a big difference. I find myself on my phone too much when Milo is around, and trying to multitask, which is never very effective. I want to be more present — the time goes so fast.

Milo has been sick this week with croup. It’s so sad having a sick baby… and it makes me feel very lucky for having an otherwise healthy baby. It’s been a rainy and raw few days, and it finally seems dry out today. I’m excited to get outside for a little walk, and hoping that the fresh air will do us both good.

The Wishful Nals Guide to Tokyo


If you follow me on Instagram or over on The Boston Day Book, you probably noticed that Matt, Milo and I headed to JapanΒ and FranceΒ last month for three weeks. It was such a wonderful trip, and Japan was even more amazing than I expected it to be. I’m going to be sharing our experiences in Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, and Koyasan. First up, Tokyo!

The Small Change That’s Made a Big Difference

The Small Change That’s Made a Big Difference

I’ve always been a pretty good sleeper, but I have found that since having a baby, it’s been hard to ‘turn it off’ when the evening rolls around and it’s time to crawl into bed. I find myself awake in the late night hours thinking of my to do list (and how there are always more items being added than being crossed off!). And more often than not, I find myself scrolling through Instagram or blog feed.

Although there is still snow one the ground here in Boston, spring is coming! I was in CharlestonΒ this past weekend and the warm weather (80 degrees one day!) was such a nice reminder of what’s to come in just a few weeks.
