Dear John Fredrick, Today is Friday and we had a fairly normal, uneventful day. You were a sleepyhead and woke up past 9, and as usual wanted to just nurse and lay in bed for over half an hour before I was able to somewhat bribe you with the promise of Sesame Street downstairs. We… Continue reading I was going to put you down but…
Yes, I’m still here! I think of writing a blog post every day. I have ideas and creative bursts of what I want to write about. I have mounds of pictures stocked up on my phone and on my computer from the past two months, since I last posted. I have content beyond belief. Halloween,… Continue reading When Reality Overwhelms
It’s nearly the end of September and dude…it’s beyond HOT here in South Carolina.

It has been such an absolute truth revealed to me this past year as a new-first-time parent about… Continue reading One Year Old Photos and Cupcake Smash!
Life has been pretty full lately. Full of plans. Full of busy-ness. Full of routines, schedules, play dates, dinner-making, husband time, playtime, teething, bedtime, church activities, housework and so on and so forth. Life has been full of things that keep me busy and definitely keep me happy, so I am not complaining. But there… Continue reading Best Friends are Rare Birds
