The Perfect Monday Mantra // and a life update

June 19, 2017

Guys, I’d be lying if I said anything other than the fact that this past week was… challenging. And I’m going into this week 100% exhausted. Remy Bea was running a pretty high fever from Monday through Wednesday of last week. It turns out she had a pretty bad double ear infection. I had no idea! […]

Weekly Mantra //

June 12, 2017

Mom life is simultaneously gratifying and terrifying. As any mom knows, life is a constant roller coaster of crazy and pure joy. And this week is already shaping up to be crazy pants. I know — it’s only Monday! So this week, just like any week, I’m going to be inhaling caffeine, and exhaling negativity. 😛 […]

Monday Mantra //

May 29, 2017

My mind is straight up mush tonight. We’ve had a whirlwind of a week (and weekend) and I’m just plain ol’ exhausted! I had planned on getting a lot of work done this holiday weekend, but instead I just embraced the moment and kept my laptop shut. While I’m getting us back into a routine, […]

Monday Mantra //

May 22, 2017

I spent almost the entire day in bed yesterday. I woke up well before any human should wake up (like, 3:30am) and went to meet up with some MRTT (Moms Run This Town) ladies to volunteer for the Cleveland Marathon. I was home by 8am, but so exhausted. Like, I took two- 2.5 hour naps […]

a Midweek Mantra //

May 17, 2017

My emotions have been all over the board this week — and it’s only Wednesday. And the more I stare at our calendar for the next couple of weeks, the more overwhelmed I get. Between work schedules, t-ball for Ari, workout classes, and other obligations, I kinda just want to shut down. Yesterday I finally […]

But I read this in a coffee shop over the weekend and I love it!   “Love your neighbor & serve your city!” Thanks for the reminder, @coffeeconnectionshilliard! And thanks for the hospitality, Columbus! Such a fun and exhausting weekend! […]

Our Week In Pictures // and My Monday Mantra

March 27, 2017

Shame on me — I’m a bad, bad, blogger! I’ve been doing a fairly decent job of getting lots of sleep + snuggling my babies. So basially I had the best excuses ever. Oh, and I worked — a LOT. But here are the exciting parts of our week, as told by pictures: [a trip […]

The Little Mermaid, Retro Dog, and a Pi(e) Day Celebration // A Wrap Up

March 20, 2017

Yesterday, after staring at my planner for what seemed like hours, I was amazed to see that we’re nearing the end of March. Amazed because it seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Remy Bea’s first birthday — but it was two whole months ago! Every single day with little kids feels like the.longest.day.ever. Everyday […]

Weekly Mantra //

March 6, 2017

As I sit here and stare at my computer screen, I face both awe and utter exhaustion from this lovely weekend. It was fairly ordinary, but filled with happiness, laughter, love, and fun. And, of course, not nearly as much sleep as I’d desire. So I’m keeping my mantra for the week short and sweet. But […]

Weekly Mantra //

February 27, 2017

Guys. Last week was a whirlwind! I had two events, continued my 14-day-straight working streak, and dealt with a plethora of toddler/baby related issues. It can only be summed up with the cliché of rollercoaster. Roller.COASTER. ya’ll. And because I was so busy with the ups and downs and loop-dee-loops, I had exactly zero time […]
