Rosie is easily the person I spend most of my time with. Although it can be challenging and we occasionally have crying during the day (which could be either of us), I’m sure it’s good for me. I’m a super sensitive Sally and I think Rosie toughens me up a little with her straight-forward and… Continue reading Deep Thoughts with Rosie Grace
Wallpaper is having a moment right now and I have recently embraced it in several ways. When we moved into our new house about a year and a half ago, it was gloriously empty and blank with light gray walls and white trim throughout. I’ve loved having such a bright and clean space, but I… Continue reading Wallpaper for the Win
So winter has come barging in on fall’s territory with quite the attitude! I’m deeming the merge of the two seasons as “finter.” (I’ve checked. It’s a thing. Or at least a hashtag) The above photo was taken the day after Halloween. Nice, right? Even though low temps and the occasional snow have kind of… Continue reading “Finter” Fun
I think every red-blooded person (and not just my plaid-wearing, pumpkin-spice-loving self)) can agree that fall is probably the most beautiful and busiest time of the year. Looking back on the past two months, I feel that our family has done SO MUCH against the backdrop of autumn leaves and the perfect fall breeze.… Continue reading I Love Fall Most of All
Hi, friends! Today I bring you the latter half of summer. It has come to my attention that even with the hot weather, I can’t deny summer’s end. It’s the end of September, Cece has already been back to school for well over a month, and there’s pumpkin spice coffee creamer in our refrigerator. So,… Continue reading Summer Happenings 2.0
Ares turned four months old today! Last year after Labor Day weekend, I found out I was pregnant. It’s just wild that one year later, Ares is actually here with his chubby cheeks and thighs, gurgling, smiling, and generally loving life (unless he’s tired or hungry, of course.) Ares has also recently made the discovery… Continue reading Ares at 4 Months
We just sent Cece off to her first day of first grade, light-up sneakers and all! I feel like school just let out for the summer about two minutes ago, but here we are having just returned from the bus stop! I did not have a chance to get weepy and emotional since the two… Continue reading First Day of First Grade!
“My biggest dream come true is my daughter; I’ve wanted her since I was a little girl.” (^^^Shoe credit goes to Grandma Pat!^^^) On my to-do list this summer was to take updated photos of the girls that I could frame, give to grandparents, etc. I finally got around to it this morning! I also… Continue reading Six and Three
Today, our tiny overlord is modeling some darn cute baby apparel from my sister’s Etsy shop! I’ve been delighted at how well these onesies have held up. (And it’s been fun getting compliments on these unique and witty pieces!) The laundry runs nonstop in our house (thanks, Ares) but we’ve been able to wash, wear, and enjoy these… Continue reading Best baby onesies ever! (And a giveaway!) CLOSED
The midpoint of summer has arrived and although I feel like we’ve done so much, I know there’s still more to squeeze in! Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen. Here is everything that’s gone on so far and the photographic proof… Continue reading Halfway through summer!
