emma bear update

outfit combo / hair bow Happy 5 months of life baby girl. I can finally say that i love you more and more each day. We are over that initial hump where I was thinking to myself what have we done?!?!? You will (God willing) understand that feeling someday and not take offense 🙂 But…

last day of maternity leave

Today has me feeling all the feels. I am soaking them both in today. It’s the last time I will ever be able to spend this amount of time with them and while it’s been an exhausting four months with Emma, it has been the BEST four months with Madison. Being with her everyday has…

oh JOY!

I am slightly obsessed with Target’s “OH JOY” line which was curated by blogger and girl boss Joy Cho. it’s colorful & bright & beautiful, just as the world should be.
