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 […]

Remy Bea // Birth Story Part 2

January 28, 2016

See Part 1 of Remy Bea’s birth story here. Okay, I know I said the last post was going to be super long, but this one is even longer… sorry! I really should have known (or at least checked) to see that it was a full moon. However, the rest of the regular ER was empty. […]

Hello, World!

January 25, 2016

Miss Remy Bea decided to make her grand entrance Saturday morning! It was a long, but good, weekend. We came home last night and got settled in as a family of four. Ari is in love. We’re all in love! I can’t wait to tell you all about it. But for now, I’m going to […]

Christmas 2015 // that’s a wrap!

December 30, 2015

Guys – my holiday hangover is still in full-force. … and I didn’t even partake in any ‘party’ festivities, so to speak! Ha! But seriously, something about celebrating Christmas leaves everyone in a post-Christmas lull. For me, it’s a mix between that and pregnancy exhaustion. But I’ll blame it on the holidays. 😉 Christmas Eve-Eve […]

the power of “NO.”

December 18, 2015

It’s taken me a long time, and a lot of years, to realize that I had the power to say “no.” A few years ago I had a goal of saying “yes” to everything I was asked to participate in for two weeks or something like that. But that was pre-kids, pre-marriage, etc. Life was […]

soliciting parenting advice //

December 9, 2015

It’s rare that I send out a mass SOS to my fellow moms + dads. In fact, I’m trying to recall a time over the last three years in which I actually begged for advice and can’t… but here I go… About a month ago Moosh requested to watch Jumanji — a movie he’s seen […]

it was a good day.

October 7, 2015

Thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes Monday. I ended up being rather sick and only sleeping for 2 hours the night before, but I made the most of it. Lack of sleep and getting sick all night sure made for an interesting morning…  Buuuut I got my butt outta bed and got a […]

i am my own worst enemy // but it will all be okay

September 23, 2015

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 […]

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

July 15, 2015

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 […]

life lately //

July 9, 2015

Pregnancy has taken over my life, friends! Seriously. I’m sick pretty much all of the time (truly, very, very, sick). But as much of a cluster that this pregnancy has caused these last few months, I’ve also managed to fit in some happy to our lives. And I’ve been quiet about ALL of it… because […]
