Always,

Amanda

Fall has arrived. I am busy packing … Continue reading →

And Then There Were Five…

I am so excited to introduce you to the newest member of our family... Our sweet little Kate arrived on Friday evening and she is absolutely beautiful! It is so surreal that she is finally here. To feel her kicking in my belly one night and then to be holding her in my arms the next...even after three kids, I am still so very fascinated by the miracle of pregnancy and birth and new … Continue reading →
