“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!
Good morning and happy Sunday! It’s been awhile since I took out my camera and just snapped a few photos of my own kids around our house. So on Thursday morning I did just that. And then I made the photos black and white because black and white = artsy. And I really want all… Continue reading A Monochrome Morning
Hi there! We are two months into 2018 and for the most part, I’m liking it. It has been a lot of time indoors, a lot of shoveling (thanks, Joe!), washing off germs, and much cozying up by the fireplace. As it happens every year, I’m anxious to leave winter behind and move onto spring.… Continue reading Jan + Feb 2018
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
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
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!
Happy 4th of July weekend! We spent last Friday and Saturday up at my in-laws cabin. This was our first visit up there since last summer and we squeezed a whole lot into our 24 hour visit. Even though the weather was on the chilly side for July, none of the kids or their cousins hesitated about… Continue reading Return to the cabin!
Hi! Coming to you now from almost the end of May/the beginning of summer! I swear, these are the last baby bump photos I’ll be posting of myself. But first, I just wanted to document the last three life changing-weeks. The above photo was taken the day before Ares was born as I was trying to figure out what… Continue reading May ’17 via iPhone
