May 19, 2015

I created my blog years ago as a space and an outlet for me to share the happenings in my life with myself and a few people who may actually read it at the time. Over the years it transitioned from me being single and living in Syracuse; to Chad and I dating; to us […]

life lately // a wrap up

May 15, 2015
birthday

Life has been crazy pants over the last month or so. But isn’t that kind of always the case when you’re working and raising a toddler and taking care of family responsibilities and training for races and trying to actually fit in some fun, too? Moosh started a new session of tumbling at the YMCA. […]

our love story // and a happy birthday, to my love.

Today’s originally scheduled blog post has been put on hold until tomorrow. Because today is an incredibly special day. Today is Chad’s 40th birthday. And I have been able to spend 7 of those amazing years by his side. And I realize that I’ve only been a part of Chad’s life for a portion of […]

It’s okay to say no, friends! I know I desperately need to be reminded that people-pleasing doesn’t mean happiness; in fact, the person and people you should please are yourself and your immediate family (spouse/significant other/children). That’s it. We think we need to please others, but we really and truly don’t. So happy Monday, friends!

After last weeks drama that nearly put Moosh into the hospital for an overnight stay, we welcomed the weekend with open arms — and hesitation. Cause who knew WHEN this kid would have another episode, right? Well he definitely wasn’t feeling himself Friday. In fact, after a quick trip to Café O’Play where we pretty much […]

Friday  //  My BFF from high school, Carli, moved down to Akron over a year ago. As mucha s we SAY we’re going to get together now that we’re living down the street from each other, we just haven’t been able to as much as we’d like. ‘Cause life happens, y’all. But Friday night we […]

anniversary // number 3.

April 28, 2015

It’s hard to believe that we have been together for 6 and a half years. Honestly? Our three year wedding anniversary is JUST THAT. The anniversary of our vows. But we’ve been exclusively, wholeheartedly, together for six and a half years. At the last minute, we decided to call a friend to see if she […]

I’m completely in love with this weeks’ mantra. It’s taken a while (and I must admit it’s still a work in progress), but I am officially in a place where I am trusting my instincts, not seeking the approval of outside parties. My values are MY values; they are what matter for myself and for […]

I would like to say that we have grand weekends full of fun and adventure. However, that truly is not the case. In fact, a wild weekend for us means an evening at Café O’Play and PJs by 8pm. For serious. Let’s be real though — this is my life 99.9% of the time… and […]

Friday  // After a long day at work and a long day at the sitter for Moosh, we wound up at our favorite local indoor play place, Café O’Play, to try and burn off whatever energy he had left. He had fun, but that quickly turned into a meltdown. So we headed home thinking the […]
