  Doing — some work on toilets. Well, at least I thought it was going to take some work. But it didn’t. I decided to forgo my normal natural cleaning method and put this Scrubbing Bubbles stuff to work. Ya’ll I didn’t even have to scrub! Literally squirted, left it, and flushed 30 minutes later … […]

Word of the Year: Lean In

Ah. The new year. I love it. This time of year is just the best! One of my favorite traditions each January is to choose a word of the year. For 2019 I actually chose two. But they go together, so, in my mind, it’s one thought. One theme for the coming months. Dominic and I recently […]

Merry Christmas + a Happy New Year

Here’s a belated peek at our Christmas card and photos we had taken in September! But, more important perhaps is that the photographer who took our photos has an amazing giveaway going on. It lasts into January so if you’re local, pop over and enter!  Oh, Reid. Always so happy and laughing … until you […]

10K Like Whoa!

After my 5K in August (that I never mentioned), I decided to up the ante. Time for a 10K! I met my goal for the August 5K by seconds – done in under 30 minutes – and I needed something new to work towards. Because … running gets to you like that. I downloaded the Nike Run Club […]

WE LOVE […]

This post is sponsored by Happy Family Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Even after four kids, I still find myself asking questions. All. The. Time. Questions about their milestones, questions about discipline, questions about food options, questions about breastfeeding, questions about my postpartum experience, questions about learning activities, questions […]

Doing — An Instagram sale. Prep for my sister’s bridal shower – eek! Wallpapering. Summer is always full of such random projects! Watching — I can’t even remember the last time I watched a TV show. The summer line up isn’t my jam. I did watch The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society on Netflix though … […]

Let’s Talk About Postpartum Skin

As much as I love sharing about pregnancy and birth, I think I most love finding camaraderie in the postpartum phase of motherhood.  Pregnancy is a little less than a year, birth, in the best circumstances, is less than a day, but postpartum? It lasts forever! Once you have a baby, you’re always postpartum!  During […]
