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!

I also… Continue reading Six and Three

Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen.

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
Easter weekend turned out to be lovely in all sorts of ways. Even though it rained on Saturday morning and our neighborhood egg hunt became more of a mingle with the Easter bunny and friends at one of our neighbor’s houses (still complete with eggs, treats, and plenty of excited kids.), everyone still enjoyed themselves. On Saturday afternoon we… Continue reading Easter 2017
I love giving and receiving holiday cards. I think my mom put me in charge of writing out our family’s cards when I was like, 12 and I was like, seriously pumped about it. (It’s true, I’ve always known how to have a rockin’ Friday night.) And now that I’m older with a family of… Continue reading What didn’t make the cut for the holiday card.
