Feeling Beautiful for Her

October 8, 2014

Sometimes the ultimate mind, body and soul rejuvenation for me is a new hair cut. So, I booked an appointment and went to get my hair done for the first time in the three weeks since Evvie was born. I was eager for the physiological cleansing that only a new haircut can bring, and so […]

Growing With Them

October 7, 2014

Jack and Zoe are 19 months apart. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the time we spent together during those first few completely wild, totally amazing years. How I loved having two babies. We did everything together, so many firsts spent learning about life, the three of us. Our first time in Manhattan; on […]

Exchanging Thoughts instead of Things

October 6, 2014

Marriage has been one of the greatest learning experiences (read: challenges) of my lifetime. Justin and I didn’t know each other all that well when we tied the knot less than a year after we met, so much of our getting-to-know-you time happened in warp speed. Eight years later and I can confidently say that […]

Summer in October

October 6, 2014

Apple picking this year was a little different than in years past. For starters, it’s 100 degrees. For this area it’s pretty typical for it to be warm this time of year, but I can’t recall it being this hot out. The kids have been swimming during the day and heading to the beach with […]

Bringing Our Memories to Life

October 3, 2014

Last year I lost my two year old hard drive. It went down in a blaze of glory, taking all of my photos and documents with it… thousands of memories that I had captured through half of our life in New York City. It was a meltdown of amazing proportions, including the chest-grabbing scenario happening […]

Relentlessly Restless

October 2, 2014

Four weeks. I can barely believe it’s been four weeks since Evvie was born. It’s just like a new mother to say something like that, isn’t it? A whole month. I want to mourn the time passing but the time has been so healing for our family. She’s getting a little pudgy and slowly creeping […]

Finding Sleep and Sanity

October 1, 2014

Evangeline has been, dare I say, following something of a schedule since the day she was born. It sounds a little crazy to say, and I’m even crazier to put it out there because we all know that Murphy’s Law sits and waits for these opportunities, but she has been doing really well with sleep. […]

Motherhood and My Legacy

September 30, 2014

I was in the second grade when I started to realize that I wasn’t cool. My parents had just gotten a divorce and I moved across the country with my mom and my sister to start our new life. I knew at the time that I had left my family, but I only recently came […]

Wild’n Out: Two Years Old

September 29, 2014

From the beginning when Beau was born, I called him my Game Changer. Three babies rocked my world in ways that I wasn’t expecting, and it was absolutely true that the transition from two to three was more challenging than the first two. We adapted though, and found out quickly that he was the best […]

Spoiling Myself in the Newborn Fade

September 27, 2014

I call it the Newborn Fade, this phase; Staying indoors, and sometimes just my bedroom for days on end, taking showers when it’s only desperately necessary (because the baby cries and I can’t even), literally staring and studying this sweet, brand new face for so long I actually lose track of time. I’m taking photos […]
