Our Colorado Trip

I've finally come to terms with the fact that our vacation is over. We spent last week in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and I pretty much didn't want to leave. The weather was fabulous and it was so nice to getaway from the normal day to day ....more

Lucy 3 months

I think it is safe to say that Lucy is the sweetest baby I've ever known. Yes, yes Ford was sweet but a stubborn little boy who wanted constant entertainment. Lucy is a dream second baby ....more

Parmesan Meatloaf

I know I've said it before but I am a sucker for an old fashioned meatloaf (and so is my protein loving husband). I love finding twists on a traditional meatloaf recipe and this Parmesan meatloaf is one of my favorite finds! I almost want to serve it with a side of yummy spaghetti because of it's delicious Italian taste ....more

Deen Austin Threads

Any time I get the chance to work with a handmade shop run by a mama, I jump on it. I'm really amazed by the talents given to certain women and am even more amazed that moms can balance motherhood and running their own business. Moms are the queens of multitasking, amen? ...more

I had my 2nd C section in April and I loved it. You can read my post on why I chose a repeat C section (after my first emergency) and also a post where I proclaim my love for C sections. Childbirth is hard, y'all ....more

Sacred Made

I have a thing for gallery walls. The wall along our staircase is covered in black and white pictures, each of my kids has a wall of random prints, photos, and knick knacks, and my bathroom has my favorite gallery wall in my house. I've bought, been given, and collected beautiful Christian and scripture based prints to hang in our downstairs powder room ....more

Ford 23 months

I can't believe we are one month away from having a 2 year old! I feel like I am more emotional than last year before he turned 1. At 1 year they are still babies but 2 seems like a cornerstone ....more
