We are excited to partner with PJ Library to share our love of reading with you!When you think of spring, what comes to mind?

It was about a year ago that I believe I was the worst version of myself. As a mother, as a person. I had just moved to this wonderful city of ours and was staying home alone with our two kids. In retrospect, the stress had gotten to me. I wasn’t being the best mother […]

I am blessed with not one, but two super-duper picky eaters. My 3-year-old daughter and my 1-year-old son like about 10 foods each. My […]
I am incredibly blessed. My husband and I have a wonderful, healthy, happy 3-year-old, and we are expecting baby number two soon. I should be excited. I should be dreaming of nursery colors and coming up with the perfect name. I should be thinking of how our family will be complete once we have her. […]
