my thoughts on mother’s day

I was laying in bed last night {with both babies, because Annabelle fell asleep in our bed and the other one is never too far from me if you know what I mean} and I thought to myself, I can't believe God has made me a mama - TWICE! And then I instantly felt a little sad for all of the women who are struggling with their motherhood journey.

an update on our annabelle

Hi, friends! Gosh, it feels like it's been such a long time since I've sat down to write a blog post. If I'm being honest it feels good but also a little nerve racking. As much as I've grown to love this blog there are still a few things that will always come first, family being at the very top of that list. If you follow me on Instagram you know things have been quiet around here because we've been putting all of our time and energy where it's needed most, into getting our sweet girl well again. Before jumping back into regular blog content I wanted to share an update on where we've been and what lies ahead.

goodbye, summer {and a quick break}

Hi friends. Are you ready to say goodbye to summer? I'm feeling ready for a new season but I'm not psyched about cold weather. Hopefully we get at least another month of mild temperatures around here.

the importance of taking time for yourself

It's really important for me to take time for myself every now and then. Since alone time is a luxury in and of itself I try not to escape for too long or do anything too elaborate. I'd love to share a few ideas with you today on how to "do you".

a look at our wedding

Hello, friends! Today is our 4th wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe how quickly time flies. In some ways I feel like we've been married forever, it's hard to imagine my life without my favorite person in it. But it's also fun to reminisce on how different we were just four years ago. I'm so thankful that Ken came in to my life when he did. He's made me the happiest lady in the land and I can't wait to do all of the rest of the years with him by my side.
