Gift Guide: NICU Parents

Yes, we’re talking BABIES today! Well, more specifically, NICU babies and their sweet parents. My friend, Megan, approached me with the idea to share a gift guide for parents who have a baby in the neonatal intensive care unit, and I was totally on board.

Happy Father’s Day!

To my amazing dad, Happy Father’s Day! I’m a better person because of your impact on my life – your kindness, determination, work ethic, love for food and chilled rosé, and personality have been graciously passed to me. And I am so thankful for that. It’s the biggest compliment in the world for people to tell me I’m just like you – which happens very often! When I think of what a “dad” embodies, you check all the boxes and three million more. I could go on and on, but here’s a short list of reasons why you are simply amazing: […]
