A Year of Dates.

I hate to even think about this but: Christmas is just around the corner. I know, that blows me away! We’re days away from October, which will fly by. Then we’ll be jumping into Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. Before you know it, Christmas will come and go and we’ll have no clue how January 2019 snuck…

Missing in Action

Wow– it’s been over a month since we’ve posted on the blog website, though we stay active on Instagram. Life has just been… crazy. Is that a good enough excuse? Can you forgive us for our slackness if we’re honest by just saying that we’ve been busy? To add to that, I’ll be honest in…

The End of an Era

We had a rough start. I thought nursing would be a breeze. I thought he’d come out, be placed on my chest, and just be ready to start nursing. And then he didn’t. The hours ticked by slowly and I began to worry that it wasn’t going to happen for us. Slowly, it did. The…

What did I do all day?

A little honest writing for you today… As a working mom, I don’t get much time with my son other than evenings and weekends. Those go by quickly and there doesn’t ever seem to be much “down time”. Because I am a teacher, I am now super blessed to be home with my son for…

Hopes and Dreams.

“You’ll understand when you have a kid of your own.” My husband and I have had this discussion so many times. We’d heard this from our parents and so many other adults throughout our childhood and adolescence. Right, sure. I doubt having a kid will make me feel any different, I would think to myself….

Pets & Babies.

Fur babies. That’s what we call our pets before we have little human babies of our own. As a pet owner, I would post pictures of my dogs like they were kids. There were trips to the park, special birthday cookies, birthday hats on occasion, couch cuddles, and so many more special bonding things. There…

Bow Giveaway!

While I was pregnant with S, I detested ALL THE PINK things I saw in the stores. I vowed that she wouldn’t be covered in only pink clothes and that my house wouldn’t look like it was the girly hot pink toy section of Target. Fast forward two years and my child wears pink frequently, (though…
