The Lost Sea Adventure

Adventures look a little different when you have an 8 month old versus when it’s just you and your husband against the world. There’s a sense of fear that lingers. Before, it didn’t matter if you got lost, ran out of gas, got stranded etc. Before, deterrents were fun. Now ? I feel like I […]

Motherhood is Weird

I have this tiny human I am responsible for, but I’m still me. I thought being a mom would make me feel old, or at least like an adult. It doesn’t. I’m still my ever direction changing self. I still want to live on the road, but instead of living in a van, I want […]

December 2017

Little hands, piggy toes in mouth, big beautiful smiles, twinkling lights, glowing big blue eyes, Christmas tree farm, fuzzy pajamas, slow slow living. I love this life. I love being her Mama.

Baby’s First Halloween

We all want to make the holidays special for our little ones. Adding a tiny human to the chaos sometimes doesn’t pan out the way we envision in our head, and that is OKAY! I had the dreamiest Halloween planned out. We would keep it simple and dress up as Rosie the Riveter so I […]

Raleigh’s First Pumpkin Patch

10.07.17 Why it is humid and 90 degrees in October, I will never understand. Nashville you are silly. Every child deserves to experience fall and the pumpkin patch, so I’ve turned up the A.C so we can wear our new fall clothes, and pretend it’s the season we are actually in. Thank you Lord for […]

Raleigh’s Room

As soon as we found out we were having a little girl, I went Pinterest crazy. I spent hours gathering ideas on how I wanted to create her space. I wanted something we could both enjoy.

Things No One Tells You About Having A C Section !

 It’s not as bad, painful, or terrifying as it’s made out to be. Operating rooms are actually quite bright and inviting.  The numbing shot they give you may surround your lungs and make you feel like your drowning. This is the single worst part of it all. You feel like you can’t breathe even though […]

Baby Bucket List

I am slowly becoming that annoying mother who is only capable of talking about her kid. Most people these days begin having children in their thirties, and I am 23. Needless to say I am not a very relate-able person to my fellow peers these days. Barefoot ( mostly because shoes don’t fit anymore) and […]
