Just Me and Macks: Savoring That One-on-One Time

Yesterday, as I was sitting at my kitchen table eating lunch, there was a noticeable difference around the room. The entire house was quiet. Macks was upstairs taking a nap and both of the girls were at school. This was the first time since Macks has been born that it’s just been the two of us for more than just a couple of hours. 

Cherishing the Small Moments at Home

This week, I have sent my oldest daughter off to first grade, my second daughter off to preschool, and packed away my youngest daughter’s newborn clothes as she rounds the corner on turning one month old.

It’s been a pretty emotional week for me, still reeling from the hormones of birth and all, and I would be lying if I said I hadn’t shed a few tears in the grocery store as I stocked up on back-to-school snacks and sleepers in the next size up for my baby.

But now, as we are settling in to our new routine, I am noticing one important thing about my days with my little ones…

Baby's First Pet

Before Alex and I became parents to tiny humans, we were parents to the most adorable schnauzer on the planet. Jaxon was a dream dog. He was lovable and patient and loyal – everything a dog should be. When Liam came along, Jaxon took to him right away. The two became fast friends.


Our Fall Bucket List

It’s no secret that autumn is absolutely my favorite time of year. From cooler temperatures and earlier sunsets to apple picking and visiting the pumpkin patch, I have always loved the fall season. With kiddos in tow, it has become even more fun. We love family hikes on our favorite trails, decorating the house for fall, and dressing up for Halloween! To celebrate the season, I thought I’d make a fall bucket list – all things I hope to do with my family this autumn!

My Baby's Newborn Photo Session!

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again… I am so grateful to have been able to hire a professional photographer to take Amani’s newborn pictures. I didn’t have to put any effort into creating the gorgeous images besides making sure Amani was fed and happy.

Though our newborn session was scheduled a little later than usual, Amani was one month old at the time, I loved how it captured her so well. Alert and wide-eyed, she was absolutely adorable in her pictures. I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you all because really, who doesn’t love newborn photography?
