Kidchella Omaha Music and Arts Festival

There is no shortage of wonderful family events to attend in Omaha, but I’m particularly excited for the upcoming Kidchella Music and Arts Festival on September 10th at Stinson Park! We are a music loving family. One of the girls is usually humming a tune, and Jeff and I regularly get original song and dance performances [...]

Nap Time Notes: Remembering to do it Twice

One morning recently as I was choosing music on Pandora for the girls, something struck me: I have TWO kids. I need to do things TWICE!  Ok, I know this sounds painfully obvious, but bear with me. As I was selecting which station to listen to, I decided to scroll through the long list in [...]

SAHM: Am I Supposed to be More?

I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for three years now, and I’ve never felt the need to apologize or explain myself to anyone… except my parents. They’ve always been 100% supportive of my decision not to work outside the home, but a part of me can’t help but feel like this isn’t what they raised me to [...]

I’ll Do it Myself

All by myself: Shoes

At 13 months, Everly is 100% in the "I'll do it myself" stage. She's fearless, adventurous, and determined to do everything Eleanor does. The 22 months that separate my two girls mean nothing to Everly. If Eleanor can do it, so can she! Once Everly started solids, she grew weary of spoon-feeding very quickly. She's [...]

Milwaukee Art Museum

Hello there! We survived our 2 week road trip with the girls, and it feels SO good to be home. Both kiddos picked up a couple of less than ideal habits over the course of the trip (aka Everly waking to eat THREE times per night), so we're taking some time to readjust back into our [...]

What to expect at Swimtastic Swim School

In our family, swimming is an essential part of summer. I grew up making daily trips to our community swimming pool and Jeff spent countless afternoons at his family’s cabin on the lake. We want our girls to make the same fantastic memories of summer fun in the water, and we believe swimming lessons are [...]

Unicorn birthday party attire

My sweet Everly is 1 year old! We celebrated with a magical unicorn birthday party last weekend, and I'm still on cloud nine. There are SO many people who hold this little girl dear to their hearts. I just love her to pieces! One year is an awesome stage. Kids at this age are just bursting developmentally [...]

just the two {three} of us: the broken, joyful journey to becoming a mom of two

For about 22 months Eleanor and I had a club - just the two of us. We spent 682 days just her and I. Together we navigated the early sleep-deprived days of infancy as I figured out how to be her mom and she figured out how to be my daughter. We reveled in the toddler stage filled with play [...]

2016 family resolutions

If you've been following along for awhile, you know that our family has had quite the year - a new baby (Everly), a new job (Jeff), and now, in just a matter of hours... a new house! It feels like since the day we were married, Jeff and I have been in a constant state [...]

a little goes a long way

Different seasons of my life always seem to teach me different lessons. In the midst of life with a 6 month old, 2.5 year old, the holidays, business travel, and buying/selling homes, my latest lesson has become crystal clear... Even the littlest things can have a BIG impact. House showings with two little ones were stressful. [...]
