Tuna & Spaghetti

How is everyone doing?? Is it strange that being inside and not seeing anyone is becoming sort of normal? This is definitely not how I envisioned spending the last couple of weeks of my pregnancy, but I’m trying my best to look at the bright side of things and just take it one day at […]

With everything going on in the world, it’s really hard to keep focus on the things we had planned as a family, what I had planned to get done work-wise and the content I planned on sharing with all of you. My mind and emotions have been all over the place trying to guess and […]

Activities to Keep You & Your Family Occupied During Social Distancing

No distance between these two!! I’m so thankful they have each other during this time of social distancing. Staying home is tough, especially with kids, and while it’s going to be a long couple of weeks, I want to make sure we’re doing our part to help flatten the curve. So… in we will stay. […]

Whale of a Time Birthday Party

Last September, we celebrated our little Emory’s second birthday and I clearly failed on posting about the party! But hey, to be fair, I was in my first trimester and very tired at the time.
