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, […]

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.

My Identity in This Season of Life

How many of us change our “identity” throughout life? I’d answer that all of us do. I mean, are you really the same person you were in high school, or do you really think you’ll be the same 20 years from now? I for one have had many identities and titles throughout my lifetime. In […]

Then You Were My Baby, Now You Are My Child

The moment I found out I was pregnant with Peyton, I knew she was going to be extremely special to us. She was unexpected and we were kind of terrified thinking we’d be parents only a year and a half into our marriage, but amidst all of our anxiety and fear of the unknown, how […]

12 Month Update on our Little Man

And just like that, we have a one-year-old. Ladies and gents, I don’t know whether to smile, ugly cry, or gasp, so I guess I’ll just do all three. It’s funny because there were many times when the newborn phase crawled – moments I didn’t think we’d ever make it to this point (I’m being […]
