At the end of summer, Joe and I were thrilled to discover that we were expecting another baby. We visited the doctor, saw and heard a heartbeat, made plans, managed morning sickness, told our girls, and began sharing our news with friends and family. Sadly, six weeks ago on October 26, my doctor confirmed what… Continue reading Our 4th Pregnancy
“It’s a warm celebration of all of our years. I dream of our story of our fairy-tale. Family dinners and family trees, teaching the kids to say, “Thank you,” and, “Please,” knowing if we stay together that things will be right.” “Is That Alright?” – Lady Gaga I truly hope you had a wonderful… Continue reading Family Photos 2018
This month I got to check off one more item off my (long) list of house projects. It was simply putting up an accent wall in our main level powder room. Like the rest of our house, it was totally fine and functional, but just needed some extra Rachel-esque zazzle. So I ordered some antique… Continue reading Another Wallpaper Win!
Ares turned 18 months old this week (which reminds me I need to bring him in to the doc for his well-check), and I thought it would be nice to write a little update on all the things he’s doing. Having our little dude man (or “noisy boy” as we sometimes call him) around… Continue reading Ares at 18 Months
Happy Halloween from our family to yours! We just returned from a huge trick-or-treating power hour in our neighborhood. (Our neighborhood is literally the best place to trick or treat ever. There are so many overly decorated houses with fantastic treats and just tons of enthusiasm throughout!) We had only planned on taking Ares to… Continue reading Halloween 2018

Life is zooming by, and I feel like the seasons aren’t even taking turns right now. Over here we went from 90 to 55, as if the weather saw a state trooper. Now… Continue reading September & October 2018
Summer is now a thing of the distant past, but it was sure filled with some delightful food, books, and good outfits! Here’s a quick recap of my favorites: Eats: The salad of choice this summer was a mix of greens (spinach, romaine, kale, and Brussel sprouts), apples, chicken, dried cranberries, and poppyseed dressing. Sometimes… Continue reading Eat, Wear, Read: Summer 2018
Our family just hit a significant milestone this week: TWO kids in school! Cece started first grade on Monday and Rosie started preschool/4k on Tuesday. Rosie is going to school 5 mornings a week so I will still have her around in the afternoons (which is great because I think Ares would miss his… Continue reading First Days of School 2018!
This August, our family got rather adventurous as we packed up our three kids, stuffed our mini van to the gills, and took a road trip to Colorado! The main reason of the trip was for Joe to run the Spartan Beast there but it was also an excuse to see monuments, landmarks, and… Continue reading Road trip to Colorado!
Oh hey! I just wanted to quick pop in and do a July and August recap now that it’s nearly September and the 2/3 of the kids in this house will be in school in less than two weeks. So, let’s go back to the 4th of July! We lived that good cabin life with… Continue reading July + August 2018
