After five months of back and forth with late-night emails. Six years of connecting with you guys on social media, the new and rebrand of Raesd with Grace by Amy Teixeira is finally here. I’ve never felt more purpose, passion and love for what I do. I think transitioning into motherhood and photography over the […]

After having relatively larger parties for Aliyana first two birthdays, I realized I wanted to do something different for her 3rd. Birthday celebrations usually come along with a lot of ‘stuff’ and we are so beyond blessed to have such generous friends and family that love her so much. However, as you know I’m not […]

The time has finally come to close one chapter and introduce another. This has been on my mind for a few years now – pretty much since I closed Confetti & Co. 4 years ago. Today, I think I’m finally ready. I know it’s just an instagram handle but so many memories, connections and friendships […]

With everything canceled and not being able to leave the house regularly, trying to keep them engaged and excited has been such a wild ride! Set schedules don’t work in our home because 1. my kids are […]

I’ve never been much of a cook in the kitchen and if you talk to my husband, he usually does all the cooking around here. The only thing I can really hang my hat on is this banana bread recipe I’ve been making for years. It’s my go-to when those bananas start turning spotty. It’s […]

There is something magical about art – I find a lot of comfort and ease through it. It’s as though time slows down while things are getting created. These beautiful natural dyed eggs aren’t just for Easter, they’re actually a really fun activity to do anytime of year with your little ones (or for yourself). […]

MoMontessori mobiles are different than the traditional mobiles you purchase from the stores. They’re created to promote development at a young age and they are the first materials that a baby will use in a Montessori home. We got a lovely set for Magali from The Prepared Environment and it was so interesting watching Magali’s response to […]

I recently added a little vanity/getting ready area and a reading nook to Aliyana’s bedroom. I should’ve done the getting area a little earlier but I was definitely procrastinating…. nonetheless, it’s finally up and she LOVES it!

I still oftentimes catch myself saying “Good Job” to everything Aliyana and Magali does well-ish. Even when it’s a daily routine or an activity and it ends with something remotely good, I hear myself shouting good job across the hall. “Good Job, you put on your shoes! Good job, you put on your coat! Good […]

My own Montessori journey started 3 years ago when I entered my first Montessori classroom when Aliyana was 6 months old. I have to admit that the beautiful prepared environment captivated me first. Everything was laid out in a way that was inviting and encouraged children to touch and explore activities. The teacher who was […]
