Hey everyone! Just thought I’d take a break from procrastinating buying back-to-school supplies to whip up a quick monthly recap of July. Here’s what we did! (Besides take funny photos with the leaf blower, thanks Joe.) The weekend before the 4th of July we had a great time at my in-laws cabin. Ares found a… Continue reading July 2019
So today ended up being awfully sweet. Joe and I have been trying to plan once-a-month “dates” with the girls. Last month he went on an outing with each of the girls (both of them chose Chuck E. Cheese.) This time Cece and I got to go out for a few hours just the two… Continue reading Mother Daughter Date!
I feel like summer has barely begun, but somehow, we are already one-third of the way through it. And the days are on their way to being darker and shorter again… eek. That’s not very glass-half-full of me to say, but I think it puts into perspective how brief and beautiful this time of year… Continue reading June 2019
Hey everyone! Happy Memorial Day weekend! It’s pretty thrilling to be on the brink of summertime, isn’t it? I’ve been a busy bee, but I definitely wanted to take a moment and gather up all things spring from the past two months and do a little life update à la iPhone photos. So here are… Continue reading April & May 2019
On April 30th, Ms. Cecelia Ray Gaetz turned eight! It was over a week ago, but I am currently still processing this milestone. What’s she like at eight-years-old? She can be frequently found zooming around our neighborhood on her rollerblades, snuggling with our dog Princess Zuzu, reading Dog Man and Junie B. Jones books under… Continue reading Happy 8th Birthday, Cece!
It sure feels good to see the mountains of snowbanks finally melted and being on the verge of opening our windows and wearing flip-flops again. Spring, you rascal, you never arrive a moment too soon! Before I quickly end up six months behind in posting, I’d like to give a recap of the past two… Continue reading February & March 2019
Back at the beginning of summer, I took my own advice and I got in some photos with my kids! We had a mini session with Patty Schmitt Photography. The girls got to have an epic dress up experience and everyone cooperated for twenty minutes of photos. Best Mother’s Day gift I’ve given myself ever!… Continue reading Mamahood at it’s Shiniest
We are a third of the way through Summer ’18! (Say it’s not so!) I’m happy to say that we’ve been definitely soaking up the warmth, checking things off our bucket list left and right, and just generally enjoying barefoot life, playgrounds, splashpads, the library, dance classes, extra ice cream, extra sunlight, and all that… Continue reading Just June
“May, more than any other month of the year, wants us to feel most alive.” -Fennel Hudson Well, hi again! I’m on a blogging roll this week and today I might (just might) finally get one of my monthly happenings blog posts complete in a timely manner. So! May! How great was that? It’s been… Continue reading The Marvelous Month of May
Over the weekend, we celebrated our oldest turning seven! We asked her how she wanted to celebrate (and we threw out some pretty cool options), and what she wanted most was a sleepover party. We kept it small (three friends, plus Rosie) and hosted rainbow birthday sleepover palooza. (We should have made t shirts)Jury… Continue reading Happy 7th Birthday, Cece!
