These Are The Days (Jan. 2022)

One of the reasons I love writing, both on this blog and in my journal, is because it helps me to remember the small, beautiful moments of this particularly more challenging season of raising two little boys. Last week, I was listening to Emily P. Freeman’s podcast, The Next Right Thing. Actually, I was listening…… Continue reading These Are The Days (Jan. 2022)

Things I am Learning 6-Months Postpartum as a Second Time Mom

I wanted to take a little space on here to reflect on the first 6 months with sweet Thatcher. It is amazing that 3 years ago I wrote a post reflecting on the first 6 months of motherhood.

Fall Activity Ideas for Little Ones

Hudson’s Third Birthday: Shark-Themed Party

It is crazy that our little baby is already 3 years-old! His birthday was already a couple weeks ago and I still can’t believe I have a 3 year-old. There is something about this year’s birthday that got me feeling really emotional. At two, Hudson still felt like he was our baby, but now at…… Continue reading Hudson’s Third Birthday: Shark-Themed Party

Final Days Before Welcoming Baby Thatcher

We are just about 5 days (or less) away from meeting our sweet baby boy! And we are so excited, thankful, and ready. I wanted to take the time to write down a few thoughts before this exciting day. I will first admit I struggled with writing a title for this post. It would be…… Continue reading Final Days Before Welcoming Baby Thatcher
