OK, I can't be alone in feeling like February is one of the worst months.. The Holidays are long gone and everything is dead and grey outside. There may be dirty snow piled on the edge of the road, or if there isn't any snow the grass is most certainly a sad shade of brown. I decided to write this post to challenge myself to find the good in this sad wintery month.. so here goes nothing!!Read More
Date nights seem few and far between these days. As much as we always say we are going to incorporate more date nights into our weekly schedule, its much easier said than done! Currently date nights have been consisting of sweatpants, take out and Netflix after Jett has gone down for the night.Read More
The Three Best Things:
1. Early mornings with a happy baby
Most of the time, we start our days around 6:30 or 7, after the first feeding of the day (or you could say, last feeding of the night? ... ) I have tried multiple times to lay him back down after that first feeding in hopes of getting another hour or twoRead More
The days are dwindling where its just the two of us. With all the excitement leading up to the arrival of our little one, its sometimes easy to forget - but there are many days that I think about how much these last 6 years of just him and I has meant to me.Read More
We shot these photos a couple of weeks ago, and I am sad to say I have outgrown it! My belly has grown and I can no longer squeeze into it and its one I am looking forward to wearing again once little guy is here! I was planning on packing it for my trip but I guess that will just have to wait!
So...packing... I have a love hate relationship with packing! I am usually a "throw as much as I can into a bag and hope it works out" type of person, but for this upcoming trip I thought through it much more on what exactly I would need and tried not to pack much more than that. And I am proud to say my suitcase is not even full. And that means two things: 1. Less for me to lug around when we get there and 2. Room for bringing home a few things that I buy over there! This is my third trip to Europe over the past decade or so and to see how much I have changed in the "how much I pack" department... its pretty hysterical! My first trip when I studied abroad in Italy, I still roll my eyes at the thought of my GIGANTIC suitcase plus carry on that I wheeled up with for my short month stay. You live and you learn I guess!
This past few weekends, we have really started to put together the nursery. We are taking it piece by piece, a project here and a project there. From the very beginning, we knew we wanted to incorporate our love for travel and adventure into the babies room in some way.Read More
