Weekly Mantra //

October 11, 2017

This week has gotten off to a weird start. Sleepless nights (for everyone, not just Remy), unexpected late work nights, and eating cereal for dinner two nights in a row… it just… happens. I keep thinking “This week. THIS is the week that I’m going to get my act together and everything will go right.” […]

Monday Mantra //

September 11, 2017

It’s been a while, but I’m bringing back the Monday Mantra, friends. Last week was a doozy. Like, a real test-your-patience, make-you-question-everything, kind of a doozy! I fully expected last week to be crazypants. But it was the worst kind of crazypants. See, we were starting our new family-schedule last week — Ari went back […]

Weekly Mantra //

June 26, 2017

I can’t believe this is the last week of June. I mean, really. How? HOW!? It truly has been a crazy month. I don’t really understand why, though, because it feels like I’ve accomplished nothing. But that’s motherhood, I guess. It all feels crazy when you’re lugging two kids around, am I right!? Here’s June […]

The Perfect Monday Mantra // and a life update

June 19, 2017

Guys, I’d be lying if I said anything other than the fact that this past week was… challenging. And I’m going into this week 100% exhausted. Remy Bea was running a pretty high fever from Monday through Wednesday of last week. It turns out she had a pretty bad double ear infection. I had no idea! […]

Weekly Mantra //

June 12, 2017

Mom life is simultaneously gratifying and terrifying. As any mom knows, life is a constant roller coaster of crazy and pure joy. And this week is already shaping up to be crazy pants. I know — it’s only Monday! So this week, just like any week, I’m going to be inhaling caffeine, and exhaling negativity. 😛 […]

Monday Mantra //

May 29, 2017

My mind is straight up mush tonight. We’ve had a whirlwind of a week (and weekend) and I’m just plain ol’ exhausted! I had planned on getting a lot of work done this holiday weekend, but instead I just embraced the moment and kept my laptop shut. While I’m getting us back into a routine, […]

Monday Mantra //

May 22, 2017

I spent almost the entire day in bed yesterday. I woke up well before any human should wake up (like, 3:30am) and went to meet up with some MRTT (Moms Run This Town) ladies to volunteer for the Cleveland Marathon. I was home by 8am, but so exhausted. Like, I took two- 2.5 hour naps […]

a Midweek Mantra //

May 17, 2017

My emotions have been all over the board this week — and it’s only Wednesday. And the more I stare at our calendar for the next couple of weeks, the more overwhelmed I get. Between work schedules, t-ball for Ari, workout classes, and other obligations, I kinda just want to shut down. Yesterday I finally […]

Weekly Mantra // “Love Your Neighbor & Serve Your City”

May 8, 2017

Happy Monday! I’m still catching up on the last week (and recovering from the weekend!). But I read this in a coffee shop over the weekend and I love it!   “Love your neighbor & serve your city!” Thanks for the reminder, @coffeeconnectionshilliard! And thanks for the hospitality, Columbus! Such a fun and exhausting weekend! […]

Our Week In Pictures // and My Monday Mantra

March 27, 2017

Shame on me — I’m a bad, bad, blogger! I’ve been doing a fairly decent job of getting lots of sleep + snuggling my babies. So basially I had the best excuses ever. Oh, and I worked — a LOT. But here are the exciting parts of our week, as told by pictures: [a trip […]
