Sunday Snapshot: Perfectly Fall

We broke out the long sleeves and pants today for the first time this season. Hooray! I woke up freezing this morning and felt so excited about it that I switched from the A/C to the heater and then spent part of the morning packing away into bins most of C’s summer clothes that I know… Read More


Sunday Snapshot: Baby’s First Haircut

This “baby’s first” was really hard for me. I absolutely was not ready for it. This is one of those times when I think it would be easier to have a little girl because you don’t have to worry about a first haircut for years, and by then it’s probably easier to deal with. But… Read More



Sunday Snapshot: It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

In actuality, this Sunday Snapshot isn’t the greatest image. It’s not even close to being sharp, it’s not exposed correctly, it’s a little grainy. It’s one I would delete from my camera along with other blurry and out-of-focus photos had it been of anything else. But I adore it so much that here it is,… Read More


Sunday Snapshot: Not Tired

Hello, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! One of my goals for this online space of mine is to get into the habit of blogging regularly, so I’m starting with a weekly photo. Nothing too elaborate or planned out; just one snapshot from a moment during the week that I’ll try to share on most Sundays. I upgraded… Read More


Vintage Airplane Party Invitation + Paper Details

I hope you’ve been enjoying the look back at our first year! This will be the last post in baby C’s first birthday series, and it’s about time for me to move on anyway, considering his first birthday was a few months ago now and I’ve just been hanging on to a false reality that it just happened, like,… Read More


Vintage Airplane First Birthday Party

I know, I know—finally! Birthday party pics! We threw a vintage airplane-themed birthday party at our home to celebrate baby C’s first year. Even though I put too much pressure on myself as usual, I loved planning my son’s first birthday party. I wanted it to be really special and memorable for us as parents because this is our first child… Read More


A First Birthday Letter to My Son

Today I’m continuing baby C’s first birthday series by sharing a note I wrote to him for the occasion. I poured all of my first-time mom emotions onto paper the night before he officially turned 1, after the last time I laid my baby boy down to sleep when his age could still only be counted in months.… Read More


Baby Update: 11, 12, 13 Months … and Counting

Of course I’ve procrastinated posting C’s monthly updates on the blog, and now I’ve gotten way behind. But I simply can’t neglect these precious months, so here are three updates rolled into one. For the sake of this not seeming like a complete fail on my part, let’s just pretend I decided to go with quarterly baby updates and… Read More


My Birth Story for Cesarean Awareness

One of the truly special things about motherhood is that we’re all tied together through this bond we share of having pushed our bodies to the limits to carry and birth a child, no matter how they were brought into this world. April is Cesarean Awareness Month, so what better time than now to share… Read More
