BABY PREPPING THAT’S SIMPLIFIED AND LETS YOU CHERISH LIFE’S SWEETEST SEASON? THAT’S MY SPECIALTY.
close those twenty-six open browser tabs, you’ve found your new bestie.
Hey, there! I’m Stephanie. Most days you can find me lounging at home with my umpteenth Nespresso watching Gilmore Girl reruns, or wandering around Pottery Barn Kids if I’m feeling ambitious.
I work as a nurse by day, and a blogger by night. I am mostly known for sharing baby tips I’ve collected over the years working with postpartum families and helping new mamas simplify their lives and homes, build traditions they love, and cherish the little moments.
In retrospect, I probably should have known that the girl who started babysitting at the age of 10, started her own Babysitter’s Club (remember those books?!) in the 6th grade, and loved reading Parents magazine in high school would one day become a mother-baby nurse.
As my mother said, “the writing was on the wall!”. And, yes, I was a super popular kid…#justkidding.
Flash forward several years…after many lattes consumed, a nursing degree, 1500+ midnight shifts worked, thousands of diapers changed, and hundreds of babies swaddled…I still LOVE helping new parents prepare and care for their baby so they feel confident in early parenthood.
I am passionate about helping new mamas, especially, feel confident and ready to have their babies and flourish in motherhood. I combined my years of experience working as a maternal-newborn nurse with my passion for baby planning to create The Mommy Membership where I coach expecting parents and help them create their own personalize baby ready plan so they are ready to rock pregnancy and postpartum life.
WHEN I’M NOT DESIGNING NURSERIES OR CURATING BABY REGISTRIES, YOU CAN FIND ME KICKIN’ IT WITH MY HUBBY IN MICHIGAN
we were married on Mackinac island
On a balmy, windy day in October, we finally said “I do” at a lakeside gazebo and then promptly boarded a carriage for a quick ride around the island and a stop at Starbucks for hot cocoa before celebrating with our family back at the resort. It was the perfect day for two “kids” who met in the 7th grade and had been inseparable ever since.
To this day, we love visiting “our island” in Northern Michigan, cheering on the Detroit Red Wings, scarfing down coney dogs (Lafayette’s are the best!), and sipping Rock ‘N Rye. We are Michiganders through and through and honestly can’t imagine living anywhere else but The Mitten State.

It was late in the evenings following my first miscarriage, that I’d spend hours searching for encouragement on Pinterest of all things. That is when I stumbled upon blogs from women around the world sharing their stories of loss and suddenly I didn’t feel as alone.
I quickly fell in love with the world of blogging and thought if I can encourage just one woman during a difficult season of her life like these blogs did for me, then all the learning and coding and writing and designing would be worth it.
And, when I get an email from someone who needs to just talk through their loss or share their story I’m quickly reminded of the foundation of LL&L and why I started this website.
