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. […]

The Last Month of This Pregnancy

I’ve been secretly telling myself, “you’re in the homestretch” for a while, but now, I actually am. ONE MONTH TO GO!!! Or probably less if being induced at 39 weeks ends up working out. As much as I can’t wait to feel myself again, I’m trying my best to soak in every movement and just […]

Valentine’s Day Boxes

Trying to explain time to a toddler can be a tough one, especially when nine months sounds like a short amount of time, but can seem really long. Because the baby will be born around Easter, we tried to give Peyton a better sense of how much time would pass by explaining the holidays that […]

Today marks twenty weeks into my pregnancy. I can’t believe I’m at this point already and we go in for our ultrasound today to check on baby’s growth, development and find out the gender! I don’t know how, but we were really patient with our first and didn’t find out until Peyton was born. We […]

Our Family Dynamic

It’s normally in the morning, or late afternoon when I witness it most. The shrieks of happiness, the giggles, the pitter patter of four feet, and the sounds of two siblings playing in their own make believe world of monsters, princesses and dogs. It’s been a relationship that’s grown abundantly with every milestone. When Emory […]

Motherhood Then & Now

My Papou came over last week for lunch and while we ate our way through french toast and bacon, we talked and laughed with the kids and my mom. At one point, my papou turned to me and asked, do you think motherhood is more difficult now than it was back then? It’s funny because […]

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 […]
