Hazel’s Nursery

I’ve wanted to share Hazel’s nursery with you guys for a while now, but I just don’t quite feel like it’s finished yet! The reality is, though, that I’ll probably be putting those finishing touches on it later this year…

Last Mother’s Day

Just writing the title of this post, tears stream down my cheeks. I remember the gut wrenching feeling of knowing that one of my children’s hearts had stopped beating who was supposed to be growing inside of me. It was Mother’s Day weekend…

Spring Travels

Our May filled up so quickly! I feel like we’ve been traveling for the past month. We finally found a system that worked to make Hazel happy in the car, though! So, the last two trips were relatively low stress. Just lots of pumping…

Weekend Baking

Do you have an activity that you just LOVED to do with your mom when you were younger? I do! It was baking for sure. My mom baked so many things whether they were homemade (lemon poppyseed bread…yum!) or from a box (funfetti, anyone…

The Mother I Aspire To Be

Since the month of May has the day we celebrate all types of mothers, I figured I’d keep the “mom” theme going.What has your mother, or one of your role model’s who’s been like a mother, instilled in you? Were you…

Sassy Toddlers

Look at the camera. Smile. Sit down. Stop hitting your sister. Stop hitting the dog with your stroller. Don’t throw that. Stay in your room until I come and get you. No, you can’t go outside without me! Stop pulling my hair! YOU…

Matching Florals

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Like…it’s sooner than you think. I know holidays come around the same time each year, so it shouldn’t be a surprise, but somehow it always is, right?! How is that? I’ll figure it…

“Never say never.” That’s what we’re told, right? Growing up your parents always say that when you tell them, “I’m never going to be as mean as you and ground my kids!” Or something to the like. Well, I never thought I’d have a problem having children. I didn’t really even know what that was until we started trying to have little one of our own.I thought I could have the world on my time. It’s my life so my rules, right? Absolutely wrong! The hard part for me is that I didn…

Anxious Thoughts

“I cried out, ‘I am slipping!’ but your unfailing love, O LORD, supported me. When doubts filled my mind your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.” Psalm 94: 18-19This past year my body has been racked with anxiety. It’s not a feeling you can really put into words. It’s such an out of body experience. You tell your body to stop aching and worrying and spinning out of control, but there is nothing you can do about it in the moment. Your heart just races and your mind knows nothing else. Somehow, you have to ground…

Number One

Number one, which I am not. Just when you think you’ve learned all you can about how to live your life in the best way possible you get side swept with something you thought you’d never have to face.  Growing up, I always “knew” I’d be successful (aka making the big bucks), traveling the world, walking amongst the elite, marrying the most handsome man in the world, and have four little ones who adore me.  Well, three years after graduating from university I still don’t know what “career” I want.  I haven’t traveled outside the…
