Chocolate witch hats

Earlier this week we played ghost and booed some of our friends! It’s a tradition I always look forward to. I still remember the first time I took Peyton when she was two-years-old… she cried when we left every house because she didn’t get the concept of dropping off treats to surprise our friends! It’s […]

Home sweet Home School

Back to school… talk about a bad time to be an enneagram nine!! For those of you not familiar with the enneagram, nines (me) tend to be indecisive and easily swayed by others, and while I’ve felt a pull to keep the kids home and teach them myself during the pandemic, I can’t tell you […]

IkeA baby gym makeover

Sage’s newest trick is being able to grab on to certain things. She’s recently become interested in batting at her baby gym and even holds some of the wooden toys while she plays. It’s so cute and a great way to keep her occupied when her siblings aren’t around to entertain her. A baby’s routine […]

Three Months with Sage Emelia

Our baby girl turned three months yesterday and while it seems like a short amount of time, it’s also hard to remember life without her. She’s been the sweetest little addition to our family and I’m so grateful to be her mama. I can’t believe we were ever on the fence about having another because […]

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 […]

We bond over toddler tantrums, birth stories and moments with our kids that make our hearts melt. These are my people!!! I’m […]

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 […]
