Better late than never, right?! My precious Ryder, You are now FOUR! You have been four for over a week but it still seems so surreal. Every year I have written your birthday post and have sobbed because we had made it through many obstacles. This year I am certain to cry tears of joy and… Read More Four. (A letter to Ryder on her 4th birthday.)
I still haven’t written Ryder’s birthday post. I have avoided the upstairs at all costs (where the computer is) because NO AIR CONDITIONING. Thankfully it is now fixed and slowly but surely cooling down in the house. I thought about going through and editing all the beach pictures and then I was like…. NAHHHHHH. I… Read More Panama City Beach 2015
We are officially one month into summer and once again the saying, “The days are long, the years are short,” applies here. Most days I am longing for Andy to get home and yet I’m sitting here feeling BUT I DON’T WANT SUMMER TO END. Rory will be starting Kindergarten in just 7 weeks. WHAT!?!… Read More no I don’t get free wieners for life
Jacy, Today is your 16th birthday. At the risk of sounding completely cliche…. HOW?! I will never forget turning 14 and knowing you would be born at any time. I couldn’t wait to hold you. I couldn’t wait to dress you up and play with you. The first time I met you was the first… Read More dear Jacy, on your 16th birthday…
Well hello there. I assume I have lost all faithful readers including my mom at this point because who likes a “blogger” who doesn’t blog? I don’t either. But I do have a good excuse, or 47 actually. My laptop is having issues and is being quite moody. The desktop was acting funky too. So instead of… Read More the big 3-0 and a weekend at Dollywood
Today is finally (Allegedly) the last day of the outage. Please, Lord, let it be true. This has for sure been the hardest one for Andy. He’s worked longer hours (he’s nearing 100) and had more problems than normal. Worst of all, a contractor he has worked with before (but not on this particular job)… Read More your typical outage update.
We have a saying around our house right now about 99.99999% of things. Eventually. Me: “I really want some floating shelves here….” Andy: “Eventually.” Me: “I want the entire downstairs to be painted grey.” Andy: “Eventually.” Me: “I want a Land Rover/Kate Spade purse/trip to Europe.” Andy: “Eventually.” HA HA HA HA No but seriously.… Read More eventually.
I feel as though the last two weeks have been a complete blur. And I currently cannot move I am so sore from ALL THE STAIRS. Last week I ended up having to go to the doctor for a hangnail. I know. I KNOW. So random. So gross. So embarrassing. So frustrating because I NEVER… Read More I’m going down!
Today we bought a house. A beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bath house with a gorgeous deck and back yard for the girls to play in. Rory has a chandelier in her new room and a wall of mirrors to dance in front of. What could suite her better?! Ryder’s room has the perfect nook to… Read More bless this house
This past week I’ve been contemplating my mother’s day post and how I would approach it this year. Mother’s Day is so tricky. We definitely want to celebrate moms loud and proud, but the pain of infertility is at its height on this day too, so you always want to be sensitive to those suffering.… Read More the best parts of motherhood
