February + March 2020

I’m throwing it back to a couple months ago, right before life got rearranged and redefined indefinitely. Here are the happy things that happened with our family in February and March of 2020 which now feel like forever ago. In the beginning of February, Rosie and I had a mama-daughter date to get our nails…

January 2020

To start with, I almost typed “January 2017” as the title to give you an idea just how my brain is functioning lately… not exactly all cylinders are firing and I attribute that to the cute nine or so pounds of noise that I feed cart around daily. (And nightly.) It’s been a challenge to…

One month as a fam of 6

“First we had each other. Then we had you. Now we have everything.” Here is our most recent round of family photos/newborn photos of Archer. They were taken by my friend Rachel at The Hive House. (It’s pretty much the most adorable and versatile whole-house studio ever). These were taken when he was about three…

December 2019

I hope the new year has been off to a great start for you! For the past month, we have been living day to day, just trying to reorient ourselves with having a newborn in our lives. There’s this part of me that feels more calmed down and more together when I’ve had chance to…

Holiday Happenings 2019

Merry Christmas Eve Eve! Before we get into full merry-mode, I just wanted to post a few pics from the last month. Since I was so anxious to prepare for baby’s arrival, we ended up decorating for Christmas the second weekend in November, I ordered and mailed my holiday cards before December, we actually finished…

Archer Quinn’s Arrival

One week ago all of our waiting ended and we finally got to meet our last and littlest, Archer! I had been debating the idea of having a birth photographer this time as each of our babies’ birthdays were easily the coolest days of my life… however, my actual memories are pretty blurry and Joe…

Oct + Nov 2019

As per usual, I feel like I can’t fully move on to the next season of the year/life until I’ve done at least a wee little blog post bringing everything up to date. Here are just a few happenings and photos from October and November. To be honest, I spent most of my time shooting…

Eat/Wear/Read: Pregnancy Edition

Last year, for fun, I wrote a few eat/wear/read posts documenting my current favorite foods, “fashion”, and fiction/non-fiction books. I’ve been wanting to do it again but not all three categories in my life have seemed very blog-able lately… or this year. (Namely the food one… I mean, you can only make a bowl of…

Halloween 2019

Hello from November! Halloween was one week ago and if I don’t post photos of it now, the images and memories will get lost in the abyss of my slush photos and we’ll never see them again! Anyone in the Midwest can agree that it was a frigid one. At least it stayed dry for…

September 2019

Ah, old blog, I’ve missed you so! Fall is consistently a busy time of year, but this one has definitely been busier than most. I knew mama/family blogging would have to get moved to the backburner for a bit, but I thought I would do a brief catch-up on at least some autumnal happenings. Early…
