• Meet Riley Ann

    Wow it’s been a long time. I guess you could say having two kids in two years has kept me busy. But, it only seemed right that since I shared Adley’s birth story, I sure as heck better share Riley’s in case blogs are around when they’re teenagers and one of them feels slighted…. #secondkidproblems So, where to begin? In… [Continue Reading]

  • Welcome to the Family, Adley Mae

    Well, I blinked and somehow our little Adley Mae is already over a month old. Mama’s don’t joke when they say that it goes by fast. I’ve been taking this last month to soak in every sweet, little moment, figure out our new normal and live life at a much slower, but sweeter, pace. Now don’t get me wrong — pregnancy is… [Continue Reading]

    I literally started writing a pregnancy update when we were at the 100 day mark and well, we’re now less than 50 days from this little gals due date and I’m finally getting around to posting it.

    With snow on the ground & the leaves all long gone, it seems like we’ve made the abrupt transition to winter here in the upper Midwest.

Finding Joy…(even in hard times)

Life has been really hard lately. I’ve found myself in one of those lulls where all I want to do is curl up in a cozy blanket, eat cupcakes, and feel sorry for myself. YEP…I’ll be honest, it’s been on of those kinds of weeks. A few weeks ago, I started this blog with The Joy of Sharing, where I shared my…

Mondays…

5am is my least favorite part of Mondays. With my alarm buzzing away in my ears, I am forced to drag myself out of my warm, cozy bed and face the day in a permanently under heated apartment. Through halfway closed eyes I stumble to the kitchen in a sleepy daze repeating to myself…”need. coffee. now.” Glamourous, huh? Everyone thinks…

The Joy of Sharing

There is so much joy that can be found in sharing with others. I’m not talking the first grade version of sharing; “Here friend, you can have one of my Oreo’s today!’ I’m talking sharing of a deeper kind. One that comes out of a pure, selfless, and loving heart. Over the last few years, I have really come to…
