Who Wants a Happy Morning?

  Who wants a happy morning? You? And you? And you?  Trust me, if I could hand out happy mornings like Oprah. I would. Hands down. Happy mornings for everyone every single day!!!  But, since I can’t gift happy mornings across the interwebs, I’ll do the next best thing. I’ll share a few of my go […]

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. […]


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 […]


Eli – 3 + 4 Months

Oh hey there sweet Eli! Yesterday you turned four months old … four whole months! Mama can hardly believe it. 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 […]


Five Favorites — New Year Edition

Hola from E and me! Is he not just the sweetest dumpling? I can assure you he smells, feels, and sounds just as precious as he looks …#boymomforlife. I got all sappy the other day thinking that someday it’s just going to be me and him at home someday (Dom too, but you know what […]


Dip Your Way Through the Big Game

  Take a moment and turn the calendar … do you see what’s happening the first Sunday of February?  That’s right, it’s the Big Game!!! You know the one ;) Now, if you know me at all, you know that football knowledge is not one of my claims to fame. I barely know the difference […]

Word of the Year: Routine

2017 will go down in infamy for its non-routine.  We packed and moved in January-February. I cooked a baby all spring/summer long. Eli came in September. Then, we house-hunted, packed, and moved between October and December. Everything was helter skelter. Always. 2017, you be crazy. I like plans. I like knowing what to expect. So, although […]


Chicken Curry Rice

I’ve been unpacking and sorting for days. Uh. Moving unearths the most tragic amount of random stuff and I’m bound and determined to give each and every thing an organized place or send it on its way.  As overwhelming as it has been to move over the holidays, it has been great too because my mom […]
