Hey everyone! We might (might) be almost finished muddling and shoveling our way through “spring.” It’s been so ridiculous, hasn’t it? Fortunately, you can still buy yourself bouquets of fresh flowers and wine, even when the weather is awful. I don’t fancy myself a complainer. But seriously. All I want to do is take these… Continue reading March Madness
Today we celebrated four years with our Rosie Posie! (Or Rosalicious as she sometimes refers to herself.) She dressed herself from head to toe today in a new outfit she picked out with a Target gift card. Only when I started uploading these photos did I realize that she somewhat resembles Rosie the Riveter… Continue reading Happy 4th Birthday, Rosie!
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
Rosie is easily the person I spend most of my time with. Although it can be challenging and we occasionally have crying during the day (which could be either of us), I’m sure it’s good for me. I’m a super sensitive Sally and I think Rosie toughens me up a little with her straight-forward and… Continue reading Deep Thoughts with Rosie Grace
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
“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
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
