Happy Birthday Baby Ari //

October 16, 2017

It’s hard to believe that this day has arrived — my first baby, Ari, is no longer a baby in any sense of the term. Today he turns 5. I’m so sad and so happy. He’s turning into such a wonderful little boy. But it’s certainly bittersweet to say goodbye to the baby years of […]

Dear Ari // Happy Birthday

October 16, 2016

Dear Ari, I’m not going to say something cliché about the years flying by; because, honestly, as quickly as they do, the days sure are long, dude. I have to say this though — Going from being a self-proclaimed “never-going-to-have-kids” chick, to finding out I was pregnant with you? That rocked my world. Your daddy […]

Happy Birthday //

May 19, 2016

Last week my husband celebrated a birthday. Not a ‘milestone,’ but a birthday, nonetheless. And I? I had a blog post half written (which I later discarded, because it was nonsense made of half-written sentences) and a toddler that just wouldn’t cooperate. But we ended up recovering the whole situation. We had really awesome-ish birthday. […]

Happy New Year

January 2, 2016

We rang in 2016 very quietly in our house. It consisted of Moosh falling asleep at 8:15 and Chad + I watching a movie, and subsequently falling asleep on the couch, by 11. When we woke up the next morning it finally really hit me that 2015 is behind us. If I’m being honest, 2015 […]

farewell 2015

December 31, 2015

Looking back on my photos from 2015 (because, let’s face it — that’s the easiest + quickest way to glance back), it’s clear that my year was comprised of the following: Moosh playing. At parks, at Cafe O’Play, at home, etc. We definitely had no shortage of playing in 2015! Cooking. Me cooking, specifically. Which […]

31 FOR 31 //

December 4, 2015

It’s been a while since I set any sort of goals for myself. In fact, it’s been over a year! Holy smokes. So it’s time to change that — to give myself a sense of purpose in my thirty-first year of life. Even if this list is making its way two whole months after my […]

Ari’s 3rd Birthday //

November 3, 2015

Well, it’s only been TWO WEEKS since Ari’s birthday. To say I’m slacking would be an understatement. Although can you really blame me? I’ve been bouncing from doctor appointment to doctor appointment, dragging a toddler along, and throwing up along the way (sometimes quite literally). So yeah. There have been “delays,” one would say. But […]

it was a good day.

October 7, 2015

Thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes Monday. I ended up being rather sick and only sleeping for 2 hours the night before, but I made the most of it. Lack of sleep and getting sick all night sure made for an interesting morning…  Buuuut I got my butt outta bed and got a […]

{ weekly mantra }

October 5, 2015

This week I’ll be celebrating a new chapter — a new year of my life! And what better way to ring in a new year than with Chad + Moosh by my side! Yep – Chad took today off. And if we do nothing more than all hang out together at home, I’ll be happy. […]

reflections on 30 //

October 4, 2015

I would be lying if I said that this past year was anything but rough. Sure, it had plenty of good times; but it also had quite a few rough patches. I’ve been sick a lot. Like, a LOT. Yes, with this pregnancy, but also before that. It’s been an odd year of ups and […]
