We’ve been baking up a storm and ringing in the holiday in other little ways while we prepare to move. No tree yet, holding out for the new house, but we do have a lovely wreath thanks to Max’s preschool fundraiser. I feel a bit out of sorts packing and still adjusting to a new […]

I’m back to running (more like walking, jogging, walking, jogging) a few times a week and I used this pretty fall leaf as an excuse to pause and catch my breath :)  Who has a bread machine? I can’t wait to try this French bread recipe! I’m so intrigued by the Enneagram. Loving podcasts lately […]

Well, my top favorite thing is obviously when these two ^^^ pause the bickering and show the love I know they have for each other. Max shed real tears the last night Jem was gone visiting family overnight because he missed her so much! But, I also wanted to share a few favorites you could actually […]

Who else is just smitten with fall? Two hands, two boots, and a venti pumpkin spice americano with extra cream way WAY up for me!  Currently, the crew and I stay home a lot (because it’s hella hard to leave with 4 people fully clothed, fed, and happy).

And these maternity low rise bikinis from Cotton Whispers are everything. I read lots of reviews and for the […]

Five favorites on a late night Friday … I ordered a new phone case to pair with the nifty air vent magnet holder thingamajig Dominic bought me (“because it’s so great and I really want my wife to have it!”).  Can I get a hooray for multi-age level games? This Camp Board Game has question […]

Have you read this ^^^? I’m about halfway done and really enjoying it. Raw and messy and beautiful, just like motherhood. I’ve been on a roll of staying up mega late (like 2am and then listening to an audiobook to drift off). Naturally, I’m a night owl, but having birthed two early birds, often, I […]
