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 […]

Kid-Friendly Kitchen Crafts!

April 14, 2016

When I found out I was going to be a mom, I had visions of what Motherhood would be. You know, not just rainbows and butterflies. Or even meltdowns and panic attacks. Honestly, I had visions and dreams of coloring, painting, and other crafts! You know, typical kid stuff, right?? Wrong. Oh-so-wrong! It turns out boys […]

Life. Exhaustion. And a rare weekend blog post.

April 10, 2016

I typically reserve my weekend for things away from this blog, but this weekend has been quite unusual. And I just can’t today. I can’t go on today without sitting down and venting this all out. Because all day Friday through Saturday morning (about 7 am) were absolute hell. Nothing went particularly awry, per se. It was just one […]

After a full week of [part-time] work last week, I was oh-so happy to see the weekend! Not because my week was hard (it was fun and exhausting, but not hard!), but because my Mama was coming to visit from Kentucky! Fortunately (and unfortunately) by the time Mimi arrived Friday night, Ari and Chad were […]

Since I lost my job in December (eek – still stings a little to say!) I’ve been upping my domesticity game in a major way. Not only have I been keeping myself on a ‘cleaning schedule’ [ugh — that sounds terribly domestic], but I’ve also been trying to stay on a meal schedule of some […]

Little Miss Bea turned 2 months old last week — and we welcome this milestone with sleep regression and lots of teething. Yep. You read that right — teething. Already. In fact, Little Miss has been teething since she was 6 weeks old, but it wasn’t until 2 relatives and our pediatrician confirmed it that […]

Since Remy Bea was born (you know… TWO months ago), life has been a roller coaster, which I’ve talked about. Extensively. Like, extensively. And this here blog has suffered the wrath of long days and nights… By the time I have a few moments to myself to sit down at my computer, I just stare at […]

Friends, ya know what makes postpartum life even more excruciating? Complete lack of sunshine. But the weather gods shone down upon us the last couple of days and blessed us with a 75 degrees in Ohio. In early March, nonetheless!! This little family has had several really rough days over the last week. Like, 7 straight hours […]

Remy Bea // One Month

February 24, 2016
itsahero-remy

Yesterday Miss Remy Bea turned one month old. It amazes me that time has flown by this quickly already. But also I keep thinking, “really? just one month??” Because it feels like the longest and shortest month of my entire life. There have been a lot of ups and downs. Here’s what our first month […]

lessons learned in parenting 2 kids for only 2 weeks. AKA i know NOTHING.

February 10, 2016

I’d be lying if I said adjusting to two children has been… easy. ‘Cause it hasn’t. I feel pushed and pulled in so many different directions. And I’ve mentioned to so many Mommy-friends that I feel super busy, but I’m not actually ‘doing’ anything. [and then those friends gently remind me that I’m keeping an […]
