Happy September! My day started around 4 am with a hungry baby and my husband taking our oldest to the hospital. It's brain surgery day. I don't know if anyone has ever been so happy to be on their way to an operating room, but Daniel has been all smiles and full of energy for the last week. ...Continue Reading
Our Son’s Upcoming Brain Surgery
My inner monologue for the last few months has been multiple variations of the same question, "How do I write this post?" Since I started this blog four and a half years ago, I've always struggled with just how much I should share. One side of me wants to err on the side of caution since I know once something's out there I can't get it back, but another side of me wants to be an open book because I know how much simply sharing our experiences can help others. To be honest, keeping such a ...Continue Reading
An Update, Family Secret & Upcoming Surgery
I can't believe 2017 is almost over, and I've only published a handful of posts on the blog this year. Where have I been and what has been going on?! I'm hoping this post will help to update you and answer some of those questions. Before I get started, I just wanted to say that today's post is different and much more personal than what I normally share, but I'll be back to writing more organizing, decluttering, and productivity goodness next week. What has been going on? When this year ...Continue Reading
New Blog Name Revealed
Today's post is a long time coming! Truth be told, I ended up taking an unexpected hiatus from blogging this year, and I haven't really known how to get started back up again. I love blogging, but I'm currently working on a lot of things behind the scenes (including a complete rebranding and redesign of the blog!) so I've been in a weird limbo state. I reached a point where I'd been away for so long that I didn't know what to say. It kind of felt like trying to reconnect with an old best ...Continue Reading
Introducing our New Addition!
Today's post could easily be described as my biggest DIY project of 2016. It was 40 weeks in the making, took all of my energy at times, and I'm so excited to share it, or rather her, with you. On December 10th, our family grew by two adorable little feet... and into a party of seven!! Sidenote: I love the picture above, but the little boys' hair reminds me of Jim Carrey in Dumb & Dumber! Hahaha! Whoops. Next time we'll try to remember to brush it to the side right before ...Continue Reading
Why I disappeared for 2 months and a Life-changing Announcement!
Hello! Long time no see... or talk. I can't believe it's already been almost two months since my last blog post. We've had a lot of stuff going on (what's new, right?), but I've spent most of the last two months biting my tongue and trying my best to stay quiet until just the right time to share our big news. ...Continue Reading
Lessons Learned from a Bad Haircut
Bad haircuts. We've all had them, but depending on just how bad they are, and how old we are when we get them, some can be more traumatizing than others. Unfortunately, I was sufficiently traumatized by bad hair because my worst haircut happened at six. ...Continue Reading
What I wish I had known before getting married
My husband and I just celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary this weekend! Sometimes I feel like, "Wow, it's already been seven years?" and other times I think, "That's it?!" ...Continue Reading
Right now, you may be asking yourself, "What is momopause, and how do I know if I have it?" Let's take a look at the symptoms: You find yourself constantly worrying about whether or not every carbon based life form within a ten mile radius of your current location has enough to eat and drink. If you're related to or have spawned said life, distance becomes irrelevant. You find yourself encouraging those who claim to have eaten enough to have "just a little more." You'd prefer a ...Continue Reading
