Welcome back!

I missed you, Alaska!

I launched this blog in a rush in December 2013, hoping to capture the momentum of the holiday shopping season, blog my way throughout the New Year and become a permanent fixture on your bookmarks bar. Then I disappeared.

Forgive me for leaving you hanging, but I have a most precious excuse:

August and Ethan, August 2015

August and Ethan, August 2015

Meet August and Ethan. They dressed up for the occasion. (Shout out to Erica Rose Photography for this sweet snap from a family wedding this summer – you can see more of her amazing work here.)

These small fries made their debut in May 2014. Between months of bed rest followed by the parenting trial by fire that comes when you have two babies at once and no previous experience, I haven’t had much time for shopping and sharing during the past year and a half.

I hope to re-launch this blog with a little more frequency and, of course, with the same love I’ve always had for our eclectic, one-of-a-kind local style and shopping experiences. I also have a few new features up my spit-up stained sleeve, and I’ll be updating the site along the way. But bear with me; I may have to take an unexpected break here or there when the baby-work-blog balance tips one way or another.

As always, you can follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (and, if you’re so inclined, you can find more photos of my babies, who are pretty much toddlers now, here).

If you have ideas or just want to say hi, leave a comment here or send me a note at akshopgirl@gmail.com.

Cheers!
