American Flag Brownies with Mascarpone Frosting

I’m back at it with another Fourth of July recipe! This my second one this week, which is pretty impressive considering I’ve been extremely silent around here lately. Holidays always motivate me and get my creative mind going, so after this post, you will likely not hear from me again for awhile – ha! Making […]

Fourth of July Bagel Board

It’s so strange to think about how different the Fourth of July will be this year. Last year, we watched our town’s parade, had a ton of fun with a bunch of our friends and their kids in our backyard, celebrated my mom’s birthday with my extended family and then watched the fireworks with Brett’s […]

Postpartum Experiences Only Your Best Friend Will Fill You in On

Have I mentioned how much I love my mom friends yet? We just get each other. We can talk about anything because right now in this life, we relate to pretty much everything.

Life With Three

It’s been too long, friends! Over a month to be exact. While I’ve missed posting about  motherhood and creating recipes, it’s been so refreshing to take a full step back, enjoy all of the newborn snuggles and journey through the hills and valleys of this season. Life with three has been beautiful, magical, tough, exhausting, […]

The Constant Feeling of Letting Go

I felt it about two weeks ago while driving to a friend’s house to drop off tupperware. It was my first moment alone since August. My first time without Sage. As I drove down the road on that breezy, warm night, it snuck up on me and almost caught me by surprise. It had been a while, […]

Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa & Sour Cream Slaw

We’ve been putting together some pretty laughable combinations together for lunch and dinner around here. I don’t think our pantry or freezer have ever been as empty as they’ve been the past few weeks. We’re really trying to limit our trips to the grocery store and it’s been hard thinking through every single thing we’ll […]

Asiago & Herb Beer Bread

We’ve been going on a lot of family walks lately, and during one of our strolls a couple of days ago, Brett and I were talking about how much peace this change of pace has brought us during this newborn phase. It’s been a relief not feeling obligated to be anywhere and we’ve never had […]

My Favorite Baby Products

When I was pregnant with our first, registering for baby products was pretty overwhelming. I did a lot of research and turned to blogs to gather opinions and build our wish list of items. It was very helpful reading through what other moms found necessary vs. unnecessary because there are so many products and it […]

Sage Emelia’s Nursery

Our most recent house project was turning the loft area upstairs between one of the kid’s rooms and their bathroom into a nursery space for Sage. Initially, we were going to expand the room and make it a little bigger and more functional, but after having some contractors come out, we found out the wall […]

Bacon, Sausage and Cheddar Quiche

While we didn’t plan on getting together with our families for Easter because we knew we would be having a baby the week before, it’s still strange that family gatherings will be looking very different on Sunday and that most churches will be streaming their services online. I’m sure a lot of families will carry […]
