It was nearly a month ago, but I’m excited to finally share some of my phone photos from our July trip to North Carolina! Our family of five drove out there (including Zuzu) and we stayed in the Asheville/ Black Mountain area. As a bonus, we were able to stop in Illinois and see/stay with… Continue reading North Carolina
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
Hello, hello! The new year is officially here and the holidays are OVA! (And our elf has flown back away to the North Pole… don’t have to worry about him hiding in the refrigerator and scaring me first thing in the morning). Once I document all of our holiday happenings, I’ll be all caught… Continue reading 2018 Holiday Happenings
Happy Holidays! We are in full cozy-mode around here. I don’t know about all of you but I seem to fluctuate daily between experiencing pure joy this Christmas season and also being totally overwhelmed about all the things a parent needs to do and be during the holidays. These feelings seemed to be heightened… Continue reading Nov + Dec 2018
Hi everyone! We just returned from a long weekend up north at the cabin. As per usual, I have lots of pictures of our kids and their cousins, but no grown-ups.

Happy first birthday Ares! We celebrated our little man’s numero uno birthday yesterday with a Cinco de Mayo fiesta! I don’t think you can say you’ve experienced a truly crazy Cinco de Mayo until you have hosted a first birthday at your house for tons of little kids complete with cupcakes, a waterslide, and general… Continue reading Ares’s First Birthday Fiesta!
Hi, friends! I hope everyone’s December is off to a merry (and not to stressy) start. Before I start posting all the holly jolly hoopla, I want to back up and get Thanksgiving recorded in the books because it turned out to be a special one. After spending the last 9 Thanksgivings in Minnesota,… Continue reading Thanksgiving 2017
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
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!
