I meant to write cup of tea, but it came out cup of teat and I felt like maybe that was applicable since I’m still breastfeeding and, well, teats are part of that? Maybe? No? It’s just delirium setting in. Mmmk, I’m alright with that. These past few weeks… months… whatever. For the past littleContinue reading “Cup o’ Teat.”
It’s Friday! Hooray! This was my third week of work and things feel like they may be starting to settle into a bit of a grove. I’m enjoying the challenge of working but also enjoying the benefit of being home with sweet Eleanor at the same time. I love it when life feels like it’s falling intoContinue reading “Finally Friday.”
I’ve loved reading day in the life posts by some of my favorite blogger that have had children! Just as well, I thought it might be fun to look back in a few months to see what our days were like at 3 months! Here we go! 2:30 AM – I hear Eleanor whimpering/crying outContinue reading “A Day In The Life – 3 Months”
Over the course of my pregnancy (especially once I could feel her kick) my fears subsided and I dove head first into any and all reading material I could get my hands on. This list contains some of my favorite pregnancy related reads!
All of which seems to mean I’m about to face one of the infamous lose-lose moments of motherhood.
Going back to work or staying home.
Either way, the moral of this story is that you lose.
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 When I found out I was pregnant I was cautiously optimistic, but also THRILLED. Even through the extreme food aversions, nausea and other less pleasant pregnancy symptoms, I was happy to be pregnant and nothing was going to stop me. Despite myContinue reading “Pregnancy Favorites”
Over the past year, I’ve become a bit of a subscription box addict. It all started with Birchbox, then Stitchfix and now the Julep Maven box. Snail mail is my favorite kind and the anticipation of receiving a box full of surprise goodies each month is so hard for me to turn down. I hadn’tContinue reading “Julep Maven Subscription Box.”
I recently saw a post that broke down each year of your 20’s from best to worst. It ranked 26 as the year you figure out your own mortality and become vividly aware that you are going to die one day. While this was certainly true for my 26th year, it was also the yearContinue reading “Happy Thanksgiving.”
This week was a good week. I spent last weekend in Vail with my friend Jacqui — summers in Colorado are awesome, but summers in the Colorado mountains are the absolute best. The rest of the week was pretty good as well: got some recipes in the works, cleaned out some drawers and closests and just relaxed. I’m having a little bit of nervous energy around picking a vacation spot, which I’ve already alluded to. However, just when I think I’ve got it all figured out, I’ll read a bad review and end up doubting everything and ending back at square one. Vacations are so expensive and time off is so rare that I want it to be just perfect. Do you have any suggestions?
Sometimes I wish I could just take a snapshot of my life. Something that would capture exactly what it’s like in this moment with a husband, puppies, a house, a job, an amazing family, fabulous friends, wonderful weather and more joy that I’ve felt in a really, really long time. In fact, I can’t even remember the last time that my life just felt good. I’m not saying every moment is good. There are cranky days and disappointments, but they are far outweighed by the hope and blissfully everyday occurrences I’m trying to get better at appreciating.
