This + That

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 […]


Meet Evivo — Your Baby’s Belly’s Best Friend

  When it comes to our children’s health, there are some startling statistics out there … There are at least two children with food allergies in almost every kindergarten classroom (FARE) Over one million children in the U.S. have type 1 diabetes (American Diabetes Association) The rate of obesity doubles as children grow from toddlers […]

Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies

Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies

I have two fantastic things to pass on to ya’ll today. First, a super easy and wonderful way to send our love to those affected by the California wildfires and hurricane victims in Texas and Florida (because yes, although it’s not in the news anymore, many are still recovering from the devastation). And second, a […]


Home Birth Essentials You Don’t Want To Forget

Three home births. One surprise. Two planned. Doesn’t make me a home birth expert, but it does mean I’ve been there and done that … thrice :) From each experience I’ve learned a bit more, not in how to actually birth at home (that’s always a wild card!), but more so in how to prepare for all […]


A Christmas Cocktail For Santa

  My big kids are 5 and 7 this year and as much as we are putting an emphasis on Jesus, others, and the true meaning of Christmas, a lot of the secret chatter I overhear is about Santa. And naturally so! Jemma and Max are at prime ages for experiencing the joy and anticipation of that […]


Postpartum Reality — 8 Weeks

How far into the 4th trimester:  7 weeks, 6 days Weight loss: I have reached my breastfeeding weight. The plateau where I live until baby is about a year old. No matter what I eat or how much I exercise, I weigh 165 pounds when I’m nursing. That’s just where my body needs to be to make […]

Style File — Love Comma

Remember when I raved about maternity underwear and questioned why it took me so long to get a few pairs? Here are the winners if you’re curious! Well, I’m in the same boat when it comes to nursing clothes. Or, as Love Comma calls it feedwear. Seriously, why try to make regular clothes work when there […]


Goat Cheese + Pear Grilled Cheese Bites With Honey Butter Glaze

   Oh. My. Goodness. I cannot wait for you to try this recipe! Grilled cheese has always been a comfort food of mine so when the weather cools and the holidays are around the corner, you can pretty much bet that grilled cheese is on my mind. But, as I’ve gotten older, wiser, and more […]


Five Favorites

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 […]


Happy Halloween!

I’m not a fan of Halloween. But, I am a fan of costumes. Especially my kids in costume! So, for posterity’s sake, here’s their 2017 trick or treating line up … Jemma never asks for a costume. She always dreams up something and pieces it together from her closet. Remember the tooth fairy outfit? Here she is […]
