Pregnancy Loss Awareness (My Story)

Pregnancy and infant loss awareness month is a chance to bring this topic to the forefront, support each other and show that we are not alone in this matter. It’s a topic most people want to avoid and would rather you quickly get over and shove under the rug. Let’s shake that rug out, beat the dust of shame and awkwardness out of it, and put it into the sun to bring us light and healing. Continue reading “Pregnancy Loss Awareness (My Story)” »

Your Best Foot Forward

We’re a couple weeks into the school year and getting back into a new routine. This years a little different for us since both my kiddos need to be dressed and out the door first thing in the morning. Last year, if need be, I could take my daughter, Mahlia, in her Jammie’s for Paxton’s drop off. But this year…both kids need to be dressed, fed, teeth brushed, bags packed and out the door. What are some routine hacks that help you? No, seriously, I’m not asking to be polite, we could use all the help we can get! Continue reading “Your Best Foot Forward” »

DIY Dining Table Makeover

Seven years ago Brent’s sister and her family were moving back to St. Louis (Boo). So we were able to buy their dining room table from them (Yay). We had a glass top table at the time with stone pillars that I loved but it was not kid friendly, it wasn’t adult-friendly as I had hurt myself on this table many times before. Since Paxton was only months old, their table was a perfect addition to our home. Continue reading “DIY Dining Table Makeover” »

Disney Land and Sea Vacation Part 1

Our favorite vacation was definitely our Disney land and sea excursion we took last spring. We always knew we wanted to take the kids to Disney but when Brent suggested we try a Disney cruise and parks, I thought, “Is that allowed”! It seemed like a dream come true! But that’s the thing with Disney, the right travel agent and an awesome husband…they do make dreams come true! Continue reading “Disney Land and Sea Vacation Part 1” »
