Friday Favorites: Pictures and Pastels

Hooray for Friday Favorites! It’s time once again for all of the internet to share the things that made our week just a little bit better. And to do a little victory dance. And to get the song “My Favorite Things” stuck in our heads. (Sorry.) So here are a few things I am loving lately, […] Read more…

Our Weekend

Happy Monday, friends! This was not at all the day that I planned, but that’s not surprising by now. 🙂 I was supposed to have a dentist appointment, and get Kai back in preschool for the first time in a week! (Insert side eye to the unnamed virus my kids got originally…) And it was all […] Read more…

How I Do Self Care (Update!)

I don’t think I’d be a very good blogger if I didn’t ever overshare, so here is my definitive good blogger post full of details on basically every aspect of my health. This started last year, when I wrote about Self Care for Moms and challenged myself to follow through on my own suggestions. (Always a […] Read more…

Friday Favorites: Memories and Messages

This week went by quickly and slowly at the same time. It was slow because I spent lots of time looking through old photos, curled up on the couch while it snowed, and cooking soups and roasts for dinner. It went by quickly as well, because that’s mom life for you. Here’s what happened and […] Read more…

Top 10 Memories with My Husband

I can’t tell you how much fun I had reminiscing as I put this together. It was really difficult to narrow all the memories down to ten! I decided to list them by date, with the earliest first, because there’s no way I could rank them. Get ready for pictures of us with our baby […] Read more…

Friday Favorites: February and Fuschia

It’s Friday, it’s February, it’s Groundhog Day, and I’m just all kinds of excited! After a cold, cloudy January, I’m eager for a short and sweet February. This is the month we’ll make a decision on our son’s kindergarten. It’s also the month my wonderful in-laws are visiting, the winter Olympics arrive, and I (especially) […] Read more…

Friday Favorites: Courage and Wellness

Hooray for Friday Favorites! I’m so glad we’ve made it through another week. In our house, this one was filled with snow, sickness, great moments, and preschooler antics. We’re looking forward to a nice weekend! ONE My Word of the Year I love choosing a word of the year. In 2017, my word really helped […] Read more…

Top 10 Photos of 2017

I can’t believe 2017 is wrapping up! But I’m so glad that I wrote this, because it motivated me to look at my photos over the past year. Thanks, Perfectly Port Family, for the topic and linkup! It was SO hard to pick only 10. Most of what I’m sharing are just regular old pictures […] Read more…

Want, Need, Wear, Read

I can’t help but cringe a little bit when people ask me what I want for Christmas. The older I get, the more generic my list is. Usually “anything you think I’d like” is the first thing that comes to mind. I love the practical trend of choosing four things for your kids in each […] Read more…

Happy Black Friday!

I hope you had an excellent Thanksgiving, surrounded by friends and family, with turkey and pie and lots of love and actual givings-of-thanks. My Thanksgiving was not at all what I thought it would be. I started to get sick on Tuesday, was out of it on Wednesday, and that was when Ry got sick […] Read more…
