Happy 2nd Birthday Remy Bea // PLUS a Gift Card Giveaway

January 22, 2018

Oh, my spirited little girl… Admittedly, I did not quite understand what ‘other parents’ meant when they said they had spirited children. I thought, “Spirited?! You just mean misbehaved??” I can honestly say, I was one-thousand percent WRONG. Spirited children are just that… full of a wild, untamed, spirit! That is exactly my Remy Bea. […]

Baby Number 3 // The First Trimester

December 18, 2017

It’s here! It’s here! The end of my first trimester has come and gone! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous every second of every day for the past 14 weeks. Despite never having had any serious complications with any of my pregnancies, there was something about finding out I was pregnant in […]

Holiday Gift Guide // The Uncommon, But Awesome

December 15, 2017

We are less than 10 days away from Christmas Eve! If you’re like me, you still have a bit of holiday shopping left to do. Specifically I struggle with stocking stuffer ideas for everyone. Oh – and what to get The Most Difficult Person In The World To Shop For (aka, my husband). But thanks […]

Digging Deep in Motherhood // Opening Up About My Infant Feeding Journey

October 8, 2017

    From the moment Remy Bea was born, everything changed. Sure, that’s to be expected when having a second child; but I mean it in the way that my world was turned upside down — this child was unlike anything I could have ever imagined. But the one thing she was always good at […]

Life Lately // a Mom’s Tale of End of Summer

September 25, 2017

I’d be lying if I said things have been easy lately. The adjustment of Ari going back to school and me starting my new Fall schedule at work has definitely been a challenge; but also, life has just been… different. I’ve been quite reserved and close-mouthed. Because, well, I don’t have anything particularly upbeat to […]

September 14, 2017

We JUST started back-to-school last week! I was READY! I know, I know.. preschool is just a few days a week, for just a few hours a day. But being on this schedule saves our family, ya’ll! Ari is currently enrolled at the YMCA (where I work) for preschool. He attended two-day preschool last year, […]

Day Tripping // Louisville, Kentucky

August 14, 2017

Life has been hella crazy lately. I’d like to say we’ve been busy travelling the globe, but that would be semi inaccurate. I mean, we have been travelling the midwest rather thoroughly. 😛 😛 And one of the great things about living in the Midwest is that we can travel a few hours and be […]

Elevate, Play with Lark, SOAK, and Eat Local! // Embracing the Chaos

July 24, 2017

We’ve been so crazy busy lately that we’ve hardly had a chance to slow down. It’s my own fault, really. I’m a chronic over-scheduler. It’s a blessing and a curse, friends. It really is. See, I thrive on the crazy; I need the busy days. I need them because they make me feel accomplished. And […]
