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. [...]

Happy Friday! And Happy {early} Halloween! I'm popping in today to share some adorable Halloween snaps of my girls taken by the amazing Ashley Nicole. This was the first year that Eleanor had an opinion about her costume, and no surprise… she chose Cinderella! And what's a Cinderella without her mouse? Eleanor is obsessed with [...]

Thanks to buybuy BABY for sponsoring this post! When I put together my baby registry for Eleanor, I thought I had a fairly good idea of what products made the most sense for our family. I tried to make smart decisions, and overall, I was very happy with our baby gear. However, when I found [...]

finding myself postpartum

finding myself postpartum

I've been wanting to write this post for awhile, but wasn't sure where to begin… or how to put it into words. I like to keep my blog posts focused on the positive aspects of life, but I think it's equally (if not more) important to be honest and open. So much changes after you have a [...]

i get by with a little help

i get by with a little help

Going from being a mama of one to a mama of two has meant some big changes for our family. One of the biggest adjustments has been not only accepting, but ASKING for help from others. Raising two little girls is a big job, and I don't pretend to be able to do it alone.  [...]
