The Best Non-Fiction of 2017

Back and forth. That’s how I go when it comes to books … a little fiction, a little nonfiction, a little paperback, a little audio. It keeps me intrigued, it keeps me learning, and most of all, it satiates my love of books! Last month I shared my favorite fiction books of the year and […]

To the Tired Mom

To the Tired Mom

Nap times didn’t coincide today, did they? Ours didn’t either. In fact, as my baby drifted off to sleep, finally, his big brother popped his head up with a cheeky grin. “O-ana?” “No, no Moana right now, sweetie,” I said, patting his back and trying to coax him back into slumber before he was too awake.

BEST FICTION

The Best Fiction of 2017

I’m asked often how I find time to read with little ones around. And I get it, who has time for novels when you’ve got snacks to prepare, laundry to do, and babies to snuggle? I’ll share soon how I fit in reading (I promise, it’s not rocket science!), but for now, I wanted to […]

Truly Custom Invites

This post is sponsored by Basic Invite.  Eight moves in ten years, ya’ll. And we’re over it! The packing is killer. The transition is hard on everyone. The “Where are we going next and when?” is unsettling. But thankfully, it’s over! We’re ready to plant some deep roots and stay for a long while in this […]

And I’ll say it again next month, because every day is long, but every milestone comes so fast. You have found your place in our family oh so perfectly and we can’t imagine our days without […]
