As you may remember, my word for 2020 is JOY. And while this year has looked so different than I had anticipated when I chose that word, there has been so much joy in this year…even (especially) when it felt the hardest to find. The world feels heavy right now, for good reason, but I […]

I’m writing this intro while sitting outside at my favorite coffee shop and it feels SO good. This morning, Dave essentially kicked me out of the house for some alone time–my first time out of the house solo since Azelie was born, and my first time physically into a building (other than church and the […]

Last week, I renewed my position as a Beautycounter consultant for the third year. As I have each June since I first joined, I mulled over the decision a little before moving forward.

It may not involve summer camps, playgrounds, or museums, like last summer did…but our neighborhood pool is officially open.

Three-and-a-half years into parenting, this is the first blog post I’ve typed up on my phone! Not a bad run there :) We’ve has a whirlwind week between celebrating Memorial Day and Azelie’s baptism, and then playing catch-up ever since…hence the lack of posting this week and this phone-typed-while-nursing Love List. I have had a […]

Cheers to the long weekend! Ours is actually extra long because Dave’s company gave everyone the day off today and he’s taking a half-day on Tuesday for Azelie’s baptism. Even though the days are certainly still blending together (seriously, HOW is it almost June?!), the weekends are starting to feel extra special now that summer […]
