Introducing Amelia Rose {Her Birth Story}

Our sweet baby girl will be four months old on Tuesday and I realized I have yet to introduce her to you, my blog readers!  So better late than never, I’d like you to meet Amelia Rose. She was born on Friday, October 13, 2017. She weighed 9lbs 15oz, and as you can see, she was born with a head-full of black hair just like her Daddy. Even though she was my fourth, I was so nervous about her birth. After two inductions with epidurals (one of which was a vacuum-assisted delivery), and one … [Read more...]

Spring Has Come

Hello there! I hope you are well and have been enjoying these first weeks of spring. Our oldest, Jack, was born on the first day of spring, so I have such sweet feelings associated with the beginning of this season. And after a what has felt like such a very long season of winter in my life, I am so happy to be experiencing the warmth and new beginnings of my very own spring. As most of you know, over a year ago my family took a big step of faith and moved from Georgia to Virginia to … [Read more...]

May Days

I used to be better about snapping candid photos of the kids throughout the week, capturing the beautiful ordinary parts of our days. Over the past year, I kind of got bogged down with the busyness of homeschooling and preparing to move, and forgot to pick up my real camera as much as I should have. Now that we have moved, I am purposefully leaving my camera on a little side table in the dining room so I am reminded to pick it up and capture these moments I don't want to forget. Like the kids … [Read more...]

Merry Christmas!

I don’t want to forget…

These moments. They pass by so quickly. I want to pay attention to the details. So each night I try to be intentional about reflecting and writing in my Mom's One Line a Day Journal. Just a few sentences to help me remember... January 31, 2014 Kate has found her voice. Tonight she lay down on the couch on a pillow and “talked” to me forever. It was the sweetest thing. I imagine it was the first of many late night mother/daughter talks. March 9, 2014 Whenever … [Read more...]

Gratitude Amidst Sickness

We've had a busy couple of weeks with Kate's birthday and my sister-in-law's wedding, and I was looking forward to spending these few days before Thanksgiving working on a gratitude project and Thanksgiving crafts with the boys and maybe even decorating for Christmas, but unfortunately a stomach bug has entered our family and has been slowly attacking us one by one. So instead of these few days being filled with scissors and glue and music and hot chocolate, they have looked more like yucky … [Read more...]

One Year {Almost}

Kate will be turning one tomorrow and we have a big celebration planned. I have spent the week crafting and preparing for her party and it's been so much fun! Confession: I LOVE throwing birthday parties for my kids. I don't do it to impress or to earn supermom points. I do it because it combines three things that I absolutely love: hosting gatherings, crafting, and my family. I've been taking a little walk down memory lane as I have been going through pictures from her first year to … [Read more...]

Third Time’s a Charm

Jack 2008 // Aidan 2010 // Kate 2014 // Phillip bought this cute little pumpkin outfit when I was pregnant with Jack. I'd say we've gotten our money's worth. Hope you had a fun weekend! … [Read more...]

11 Months

Yesterday Kate turned 11 months old. I found the adorable big felt flower headband at Target, but as you can see, Little Miss Kate was not having it. So we switched to a tiny bow and finally got a cute little grin hiding an animal cracker inside. Kate loves her animal crackers. I can't believe my baby girl is almost one, but I am so very excited to enter into this fun age of play and learning. … [Read more...]

My Hello and My Sorry

So it's been a while since I've last blogged. An almost 10-month loooong while. I never intended to stop blogging altogether. Life just got a little, shall we say, busy. And my poor little blog was shoved to the bottom of the list and never again resurfaced for air. Oh, I wrote many posts in my head, and wanted to share pictures and such with you, but the amount of time that had passed made it feel awkward to just pop-in randomly without first saying hello and sorry I haven't written in a while, … [Read more...]
