Happy Location-versary to Us

Cate Mezyk - April 28, 2017

The story of Wild Ruffle is kind of a rambling one. And we have a ton of anniversaries to celebrate. First, there’s the anniversary of the very start of Wild Ruffle. It began as a blog with just one of us, back in January of 2011. You can check out the humble beginnings by clicking here. The story expanded a bit, adding Pop Up Shops …

Totally Blank

Cate Mezyk - April 24, 2017

My family is worried for their future. They’re seriously concerned that they will soon be caring for me as my memory fails and I fall into a life of dementia. I kid you not. I remember nothing. Or rather, I remember things that help me not at all. For instance, I can remember every word to this random song that I had to sing in …

You Look Good

I’ve got a new anthem these days. It’s a song we’ve been singing at the top of our lungs in the Mezyk house. We don’t really sing it with the original lyrics in mind… after all, the song refers to spotting someone of the opposite sex and liking what they see. Nope. Instead, we’ve been singing it directly to each other, as a pump you …

Making it all Work

Tammy Hiveley - April 14, 2017

Our spring schedule is gearing up. Each morning Jason and I have a de-briefing on who’s running whom where and when. Some days are easier than others annnd, to be honest, not all the activities have started quite yet but so far so good! We’ve got this. Even though Evie has only been late to school twice this week. …Oh wait, that has nothing to do with …

Shopbop SALE

Tammy Hiveley - April 12, 2017

“Oh my goodness – those are so cute! Where did you get them? I have to have a pair for myself!” Isn’t it fun when people compliment us on what we’re wearing? And nothing puts a little pep in your step like someone telling you that they love your shoes. Especially if you happen to have a deep love for footwear the way we do! …

Growing Up

Off the shoulder top/cold shoulder

I hung out with an old friend the other day – I haven’t seen her in a long time and it was lovely to catch up. Every time we get together we pick up right where we’ve left off, even if we haven’t been together in forever. It’s the kind of friendship that you cherish, because it’s one that you know will stand the test …

This Dance Battle Is ON!

Tammy Hiveley - April 5, 2017

Turns out I only like the idea of running but the actual execution is a struggle. Why is it so difficult to put on running shoes and go out the front door? Sounds easiest enough to me… It isn’t. So after forcing myself to run last week I began reflecting back. Reflecting on a random statement I overheard my daughter tell my husband after a family night at …

Mom, Can You Play With Me?

I love playing with my kids. For example, this weekend we played croquet, I punted the ball to my son in the yard, we went for a family walk, we’ve read together, and played games. But my kids are insatiable. “Mom, can you play such and such with me?” is a constant refrain around here. They can’t get enough of my time, and are always asking …

Music To My Ears

Pink button down with white denim

Every once in awhile, we get in a music frenzy, where we all want to download a bunch of new music to our family play list. (we really should look into getting that Apple music deal where you pay a monthly fee and get as much of the music we’d all like for one price… but it feels like one more monthly commitment to add on.) We …
