Jemma — 5 3/4 Years Old

Oh heavens, my girl is growing up so very fast. It seems like just yesterday we were on our magical trip to Disneyland, ready to celebrate her 5th birthday. And now, she’s on the brink of 6. SIX! She is my biggest helper, the “little mama” in our family. She dotes on Reid and cares for […]


Be Great Out There

This post was sponsored by Nature Valley as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. The longer I’m a mom the more often I think, “I have no idea what I’m doing. Who entrusted me with these little people? How am I supposed to know how to care for them? What to teach them? […]

Yes, There Is Joy In House Cleaning!

Today’s post was sponsored by LG Electronics. Totally not pulling your leg … there can be joy in house cleaning if you look hard enough and approach it with the right heart!

50mm practice

This + That

See that ^^^? I took that photo all by myself with my new lens! Things that don’t move, like plants, are my friend. Things that do move, like my children, well, they’re more difficult to capture. A few months ago I ordered a 50mm, this one if you’re curious. It’s my first non-stock lens and honestly, I’m […]


It’s All Worth It

Oh yes, it’s true – in honor of Father’s Day this month That Dad Dominic is making an appearance on the blog today! When Dom and I got married way back when (we’re just 14 months away from TEN YEARS!) I imagined that he would be a wonderful father, but now, seeing him in action, […]

Night Walks

This post was sponsored by CYBEX as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received the CYBEX Agis Travel System to facilitate my review. I don’t love summer. Actually, it may be my least favorite season. I know, I know, scoff at me now. But, heat just isn’t my friend. Neither are bugs. Or sunburns. […]

DIY “Potty Training On the Go” Kit

Today I committed a cardinal sin when it comes to potty training — I left home without my “Potty Training On the Go” Kit! Go ahead, cue all the mom brain jokes, I’ve already been officially diagnosed as “super forgetful” by Jemma :) I honestly have yet to do this in all my years of potty training, […]

All About Building a House, Maybe

Well, we’re maybe building a house. I say maybe because we haven’t bought property yet (we have a piece in mind that we love though) and we’re still nailing down a design. Oh, and the budget, because apparently it’s a good idea to be smart about finances when it comes to building. All that to say, we’re […]
