Stop Telling Me to Cherish Every Moment with My Kids

It seems like every time I scroll through my newsfeed, one of my friends has shared a heart-wrenching article on some variation of how fast our kids are growing up: "you never know when the last bedtime story will be" "only 940 weekends until they graduate" "don't blink, because it will ALL be over" "everything [...]

Lunch Packs for Little Hands

It's the beginning of a new era: Eleanor starts preschool this week! She is incredibly excited, and it's been so fun answering her questions and watching her anticipation build for the "big day." She and I will both have a learning curve getting used to everything school entails (new people, new responsibilities, a new routine), [...]

Today I’m excited to introduce you to Katy Spratte! I first met Katy back in my Creighton days, and it’s been really neat to reconnect with her now that we’re both living in Omaha again. Her passion for philanthropy is apparent in all facets of her life - in both work and play, Katy is [...]

Summer Fun Close to Home

toddler fun roller coaster

This post is in partnership with buybuy BABY, a brand I love. All opinions here are my own. You guys, I can say without a doubt, that this summer has been the best. As much as I love a snuggly baby, having an independent toddler really opens up life. We've been on-the-go practically nonstop this [...]

Nap Time Notes: Creating

Nap Time Notes with Joanna from Makingmine

Hey mamas, I'm popping in today with a quick post! I'm starting a new "Nap Time Notes" series where I'll kick back while the girls nap and scribble out my thoughts on whatever topic is swirling around this "mom brain" of mine. Mostly, I just want to connect with you all! Should be fun ;)  Do I have any [...]
