Friday Introduction //

March 17, 2017

I recently realized that I’ve been blogging for close to 10 years. That’s a long time, friends. Like, a ridiculously long time. So it’s likely that most of you have no idea who I am or what exactly brought me to where I am now. I never wanted to be a mom. It’s true. My ‘grand plan’ […]

Red & White on Thursday Night // Recap

February 2, 2017

Last week Chad and I legit skipped our way out the front door to attend the 20th anniversary of Red and White on Thursday Night — a food and wine event to benefit The Arthritis Foundation. I’ve said before that this event is truly our favorite event of the whole year. It’s something we continuously […]

P.S. I Love JORD (and my husband) // GIVEAWAY

January 28, 2017

In keeping with my commitment to be as open and honest as possible here on my blog, I have to say that I had no idea how having children would change my relationship with my husband. See, Chad and I had dated for four years before we decided to get hitched! So we certainly didn’t […]

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 […]

‘Tucky.

July 28, 2016

Well, it may have taken us 7 hours to make a 5 and a half hour trip, but we finally made it to Kentucky — or ‘Tucky, as Ari so lovingly refers to it — last night. It turns out traveling with two kids, both of which refuse to sleep in the car, is about […]

Happy Father’s Day.

June 19, 2016

Seeing Chad morph from boyfriend, to husband, to father of our children has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I’ve talked before about watching him, quite literally, turning into a father during the delivery of Ari. It was… emotional. And intense. Watching the love he immediately had for our children changed me, […]

Life Lately // June 2016

June 3, 2016

This post originally started as a “weekend wrap up” … OVER A MONTH AGO! Like, I’m talking APRIL. But life just got extra busy and the sleep started to get even harder to come by. So I was failing at putting words into sentences. Heck, most of the time I’m still struggling to put logical sentences […]

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. […]

Marriage, Anniversaries, and Making It Work

April 21, 2016

Today is our 4th anniversary. I honestly can’t believe it’s been four years already — I’m certainly not saying that in jest. I literally mean, I cannot believe that Chad and I have been together for 8 years. I thought a couple of years together was a huge milestone, but now that we’ve been together […]

Celebrating Real Love.

February 14, 2016

I’ve never been one to care much for Valentine’s Day. It’s not out of spite; it’s just that I feel like it’s a totally silly holiday. Personally, I’d rather show my love for my partner throughout the year, in forms of small gestures, than spend one day on one grand gesture. In fact, the only […]
