{ welcome, october }

It makes me so happy to see how many people — both in person, and all over social media — truly delight in everything that is October. There’s just something welcoming about the cool, crisp, Autumn air, warm coffee, oversized sweaters, and the falling leaves! I have always loved October, but I assumed it was […]

weekend wrap up //

September 29, 2015

This weekend my sister-in-law and her family came into town from Denver for a quick visit. The unfortunate part about this is that I was still very much sick; but I made the best of it (and luckily just spent my nights throwing up, not my days). We haven’t seen them in what seems like […]

Sometimes I get in my own head. I start to panic because it’s pretty much the worst place to spend a significant amount of time. I am THE BEST at doomsday scenarios, in every facet of my life. Seriously. I can jump from nothing to worst case scenario in 2 seconds flat. It’s a horrible […]

because it’s been a week now…

September 10, 2015
Hello World

One of the main reasons I was so anxious to find out if we were expecting another little boy or our first baby girl, was because I want to either: a. pack all of our boy stuff up (I’m not ready to part with it yet), or b. look for all new awesome girl stuff. […]

and the baby is …

September 3, 2015

Yesterday was a good day. Like, a really good day. First, I found a Snuza Hero at Target for $40 off. I’ve had one at the top of my “to-get before new baby” list for a long time, and it just so happens this one was a return from online, so it was automatically discounted. […]

Road Trip Must-Haves

road trip must haves1

This summer I’ve travelled solo with Moosh a couple of times. Well, guys, I’m a freaking pro these days! And we’re taking one last small trip. And while I’m putting together our travel necessities, I decided to share our go-to road trip list! 1. A LeapPad (and/or iPad). We bring both. Especially on a long […]

a bumpdate! 17+ weeks!

August 16, 2015

OK, so compared to when I was pregnant with Moosh, I have been seriously slacking in the documentation of this pregnancy. Perhaps that’s because there hasn’t been much to document, other than the nonstop illness. But other than the hyperemesis, this pregnancy has been healthy. Well, at least for the baby! The Bump — This […]

mommy + moosh //

August 5, 2015

A few weeks ago Moosh and I travelled to Cincinnati to meet up with Justine, our photographer, who documented our elopement in Maine. Yeah it’s complicated. She visits family every year in Cincy, but lives in Maine, where we got married 3.5 years ago. It’s close (enough) for us to make the trip for some […]

do what you can // it takes a village. still.

it takes a village

After Moosh was born, it became crystal clear that the saying “It takes a village to raise a child” is 100% true. I was, and forever will be, eternally grateful for everyone who brought over a meal or sacrificed their time to come clean our house and do the laundry. We even had several family […]
