For the very first time, we aren’t traveling for Christmas! We usually take advantage of Dave’s company shutdown over the holidays by taking a longer trip (usually close to two weeks) to see one of our families, but knowing I’d be in my third trimester by Christmas this year, we made the decision early-on to […]

I’ve been a loyal Coffee + Crumbs podcast listener since I became a mom, so when Emily invited me to join in sharing my “best of 2019” inspired by this recent episode, I couldn’t say yes quickly enough.

We weren’t really in the market for a new house, so we admired […]

I would have called this post “our babymoon in Asheville,” but to be honest, we rarely ventured from the Biltmore Estate! This was super unusual for Dave and me–we’ve never done a resort-style vacation before and love few things more than getting out and exploring new cities. In this trip’s case though, we were most […]

October looked NOTHING like I had planned! I really hate to be secretive, but something kind of huge and unexpected happened in a very short amount of time, throwing a lot of our plans and intentions to the wind. I am excited to share it with y’all in a few weeks, but in the meantime, […]
