Weekly Mantra //

February 15, 2017

I’m getting to this a little late, but I swear it’s for good reason. Last Friday we (and by we, I mean Ari, Remy and I) took an impromptu trip to Columbus to visit my sister and her family — and my mom, who happened to be in town from Kentucky. So by the time […]

Soothing A Colicky Baby //

February 12, 2017

In my (many) efforts to be a super-‘real mom,’ I’ve shared our struggles with colic quite a bit. Honestly, before becoming a mom — heck, even after becoming a mom — I had read and heard so little about the battle that is colic. It was discouraging, to say the least. We found ourselves knee-deep […]

Illness, Float Therapy, Yoga, and the Northside Market // Weekly Mantra

February 5, 2017

So last week I was all “this is going to be THE BEST week,” which is pretty much just tempting fate. And fate handed me about 50% of what I was expecting last week, and 50% of the unexpected. Win some, lose some, friends. Monday morning I woke up with a bit of a sore […]

Red & White on Thursday Night // Recap

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.

Remy Bea // 1 YEAR!

February 1, 2017

Guys. I can’t believe we survived a whole year with this child! She has been challenging since her first days at home. She has pushed me to my physical and mental limits, but we survived. I feel like this blog post should just be titled “WE SURVIVED!” I’m not even joking. For those who haven’t […]

Weekly Mantra //

January 30, 2017

It’s the dawn of a new week, friends! And after some serious R+R this weekend, I’m absolutely ready for this week! Honestly, we didn’t do much this weekend, besides signing Ari up for Little League (so exciting!) and watching several Disney movies. It’s been a perfectly semi-relaxing weekend, that’s for sure! And this week I […]

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 […]

January 25, 2017

Monday my last baby had her first birthday. I know! I still can’t believe it! Well, over the weekend we celebrated little Miss Bea turning the big O-N-E with a small party. (Note: It was really hard for me to throw a small party. We just don’t know how to do “small” parties in my family! […]

January 23, 2017

I’m not gonna lie — we’re coming off of the weirdest and best weekend, y’all. Last night it felt like midnight even though it was 6:45pm. That part was pretty awful; but the rest? The rest was glorious. And this week, well, specifically, today, Miss Bea turns ONE.More on her first birthday party later, but […]
