During the Christmas season, I decided to shower my husband with “25 Days of I Love You’s” to make him feel extra special. I did something similar for the fourteen days leading up to Valentine’s Day a few years ago (prior to having kids) so I thought I would try something similar. Even though Christmas […]
So, at my twins’ first birthday party, I asked the guests (mostly our family) to write them each a letter. Each piece of letter paper I gave out had a different birthday starting at age 5. Just about every birthday from age 5-30 was included, with mostly every other year of their twenties. The idea […]

How many times have you heard the phrase, “I want a baby” uttered? Or how often has someone asked to hold your baby or told you how sweet your baby is? Baby fever is all over (especially when you are trying to have one yourself). I remember the days of holding friends’ babies, while longing […]
Life is hard. Parenting is hard. There have been so many moments since becoming a mom where other people’s words and actions really impacted me. Unfortunately most of those were in negative ways. I know many of the comments weren’t intentionally meant that way, but sometimes people don’t realize how their words can alter a […]
Anyone else feel like they will never sleep again?? Between pregnancy insomnia, newborn feedings, crazy busy days, and the months (possibly years) until your baby sleeps through the night, sleeping well can seem like a distant memory. Most of the time exhaustion is my new normal these days, but every once in a while, usually […]
