A Simple Floral First Birthday Party

My third little girl is one! I can not believe it! For my older two girls I went a bit overboard and threw huge parties (read about them here). This time around we just couldn’t swing it. Although it wasn’t going to be a big bash I still wanted to make it special and this day truly was one of the most wonderful birthdays. Just a few family members at our home, a perfect setting for my sweet girl. One…

Now my body shows the wear…

I had to learn to steal little moments for myself to regain my sanity. Little moments that might not seem like much at first but totally do the…

The Big Girl Room Reveal

Recently we moved Edith into Lucille’s room to free up the nursery. That way we could get Hazel out of our bed (even though I loved having her there) and into her own space. Like with any big change I was apprehensive. Both of the girls were sleeping great and still taking a long afternoon nap. I was worried that this could change the dynamic. I wanted them to continue getting quality sleep and I wanted to keep sleeping too.…
