Because we were on vacation for Judah’s actual 3-month birthday, these photos were taken a few days later.  I just love this little boy to bits! As a three-month-old, if I had to name a

As I sit here in my pjs, drinking my mint tea, cozy-ied up on the couch, and just loving this time when I’m the only one up at our house, I can’t help but be so thankful for ALL that I

I find it funny (ok…more *ironic*) that when you are thinking/dwelling on a certain thought, it somehow always works it’s way into your conversation.  With whoever, whenever,

Last night we took our first date without the little lion man.  We talked (even though lots of it was about Juju!) free of interruption, ate a delicious meal, grabbed a coffee, took a country drive

After we finished supper tonight, we quickly went out to the backyard to take a few 2-month-old shots.  Previous to these expressive faces (!) there were tears *mama has sad face* … and

Has it EVER been a busy time!  From the first week of June, until this last weekend, we have been going going going!!  Like I mentioned in my last post, new things, changes, busyness.

I know this post is a little late (was planning on posting this July 13th!), but we have been super busy as of late:  . My girlfriend is getting married next weekend, and I am trying to

It’s been so long since I’ve had (what feels like) a chunk of time to be able to write.  Friday marked my boy’s 1 month birthday.  Yes, 1 FULL month ago from when he first debuted

I am so proud to finally announce it on this blog of mine … our lil man is HERE!!  The last stretch of waiting for him seemed like it would never end.  Yet, here we are, with his 4 week

My mind has been, let’s just say, “occupied” with when baby will finally makes it’s debut!  The actual 40-week due date was May 25.  I have officially come to terms

Yup…today is the day.  The day that marks our one-year anniversary of being married.  It is wild to think of after waiting 4.5 years of dating, we finally (!) got engaged, then

Hello, little blog … and hello, friends who happen to read my little blog! Life has been so surprising, changing, unfathomable, and exciting lately.  Over the past four months, I feel

As proven in my last “accidental” post … my habit of not “putting away” persists!  The other night, I left my “put it away” post open on my computer

What a great long weekend camping in Kananaskis – Blue Rock Campground (can’t believe that it’s already “last weekend”!).  Away from it all…phones, internet,

A couple weeks ago, I told Matt that I had a surprise for him but he wouldn’t be able to know what it is for a month.  Do you know how difficult it has been to keep this in?!?!  Aye!

teacup bathing + camping

I was introduced to this obsession of outdoor waterholes from a blogger friend’s posts at August and After.  If it be hot or cold, she’s seemed to search out the best options.

A few months ago, we went down to Montana for a quick get-away.  Very fun, beautiful, relaxing, fulfilling (shopping and all!).  While we were down there, we saw this old Ford F-700 that I

It’s been hard to be creative lately. From writing here or my journal, playing or composing music, or just having the ‘oomph’ to start a project … it’s been hard.

It’s been 42 days since we got hitched! Forty-two days that I have been a married woman, a wife! In so many ways, I cannot believe the time has gone by so quickly. Yet in other ways, I still
