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 […]

Meet Sage Emelia

On Monday, April 6, we welcomed our baby girl, Sage Emelia, to the world!! She was born at 3:18 p.m. and is 8 pounds 2 ounces and 21 inches long. Sage was my quickest and easiest birth experience, which wasn’t surprising to me because Emory’s birth was easier than Peyton’s. I went in for a […]

Giving Birth During a Pandemic

“I’m reaching out, I’ll chase you down. I dare you to believe how much I love you now. Don’t be afraid, I am your strength. We’ll be walking on the water, dancing on the waves. I set every star into place so you would remember my name. I made it all for you. You are […]

Easter Bunny Pudding Cups

Me again! Sending you some Easter cheer in the form of pudding cups. Did anyone else eat the good old worm cups with “dirt” growing up? I think I remember having a couple when I was younger and thinking it was the coolest thing to be eating something that looked like it came from the […]

Bunny Popsicle Stick Craft

How are you all doing? Hanging in there? We have our great days, and our not-so-great days. Our days filled with different activities, and days when all I want to do is sleep or get housework done. It’s strange not seeing anyone and barely going anywhere besides the doctor’s office and the Target parking lot […]
