December 13, 2016

A couple of months ago, at Ari’s fourth birthday party, my aunt brought up a local Christmas event she likes to take her kiddos to  — Kringle’s Inventionasium! And she invited us to join them. I wasn’t quite sure what this whole thing was about, but we were promised a fun, and memorable, time! Located […]

Crafty Mart // Explore + Shop Locally

December 7, 2016

Thanksgiving weekend was the shortest, long weekend in the history of weekends, friends. We laid really, really, low for most of it. But I did manage to sneak out with Remy Bea on Saturday to go to one of my favorite local events — Crafty Mart. Crafty Mart is Akron, Ohio’s market for all things handmade! […]

Hey! Remember Halloween?? You know, that pseudo-Holiday two-ish weeks ago? Well, as per the norm, life went off the rails. And I forgot to ever post any pictures of our Halloween shenanigans.

Thirty-Two //

October 8, 2016

Ohhhh, thirty-two! To think… not long ago I was terrified of turning 30. Now? Now I embrace my age! Even though the last several [okay… many…] birthdays ‘meant’ nothing, I was still somehow hung up on getting a year older. And even though this years birthday came and went without fanfare, there was something extra […]

This weekend was a freaking roller coaster. Friday night Chad and I went on our second date since Remy was born. It was really nice. And super nice of a dear friend to watch the kiddos while we went out. But guess what? Our “date” was only an hour long — and not for lack […]

This week is not only a short work week (obvy) but it’s the start of preschool! Which really means two things: 1. My new preschool gymnastics classes start tomorrow! My first ‘full year’ of coaching these little nuggets!; and 2. Ari starts preschool for the first time. I’m so excited for him and so sad […]

Kentucky Round Up!

August 23, 2016

Hey! Did you know we went to Kentucky (or as Ari calls it ‘Tucky) three weeks ago!? Yep! We did! And honestly, the last two-plus weeks haven’t been hard. We’ve just been busy. And I’ve had a hard time concentrating on pretty much everything (helloooooo, three different to-do lists that need to be condensed!). But […]

Weekend Wrap Up //

June 15, 2016

It was another one of those weekends. The kind of weekend that makes my heart pitter-patter. I went to bed SO full of happy on Sunday night. Seriously. I was just… happy! My mom and dad arrived around noon on Friday. We got them settled in and then headed to lunch over at Retro Dog. […]
