A Day in the Life (2 Years Later)

I love Facebook’s Timehop–seeing what I was posting or doing years ago. It’s fun (and frightening!) to see that college graduation was so many years ago or that we had that one cold day in May last year too. Two years ago, I took pictures for a day in our life. Liam was almost two […]

What’s Working: April 2017

This is where I share five things that are working well for our family right now–three for myself (or us as a whole), and one for each child.

Baby Number 2 is…

Long Time No Post

Since I last wrote, a lot has happened. We’ve been in full swing summer mode. And we’re expecting a baby! I’m due in the middle of January, and we are super excited. I’m nineteen weeks along (though thirteen in the picture) and so glad to be feeling human again. We found out we were expecting […]
