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 […]

Postpartum Reality — 15 Weeks

How far into the 4th trimester:  It’s over :( I missed the 12-13 week mark because we were busy moving and all things blogging fell by the wayside for a bit! #survivalmode UPDATE: Wait, no I didn’t miss it, I just left it in my drafts and never hit publish! I backdated it so these updates […]

Winter Home Days

  I feel like I talk about the seasons of the year often. Fall, winter, spring, and summer. A quarter at a time, totaling a whole year, season by season. One leads to the other and because my day to day is so much of the same – meals, diapers, laundry, schooling – the seasons […]

A Very Merry Christmas

It has been quite the December!  Packing, moving, unpacking, and then, Christmas! We managed to put up our tree on the 23rd and decorated as part of the Christmas celebration before opening gifts with family on the 24th. And now I’m going to leave it all up through January, because, why not! My sister baked […]
