Hello! We’ve had a snowy week and some exciting things going on here. Let me go back to the beginning of the month, with a visit from my parents and aunt and some holiday activities. With our visitors, we went to the Christmas Festival of Lights at the Grotto. It was cold and beautiful! Ari… Continue reading Sam at 6 Months Old, First Half of December
I have some “big feelings” to share. Ari also has been having some big feelings this morning, lying face down on the floor in the hall at school while I dropped Sam off, then yelling loudly but not talking or using any words in his own classroom before I sad goodbye. I’m assuming it’s related… Continue reading Back to Work (the Life of a Working Breastfeeding Mom!), Family Update, and Sam at 4 Months Old
This year has been off to a rough start with one illness after another for all of us (colds, etc.). But we still have our goals for the rest of the year! I have to share a funny story about our vision board last year. I had included a picture of a woman unloading a… Continue reading Vision Board 2016 – A Belated New Year’s Post
Happy New Year! More in that vein coming, particularly our 2016 vision board. 🙂 But for now, I want to briefly review some of my attempts at cooking in November and December.

Here is this year’s board: There is a calm and peaceful… Continue reading 2015 Vision Board – And My 100th Blog Post!
Once again it’s been forever and now I have so much catching up to do! We started December with an amazing trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. It was a great chance to relax, be warm, remind Ari that he loves the water, and be together as a family. I had several itineraries for… Continue reading Happy New Year! December Recap (Hawaii and Holidays!), Ari Turns 1 and 1/2, and Our Vision for 2015
I want to take a moment and say that motherhood is not easy! I read blogs that make me feel bad about everything I’m not doing as well as other people seemingly are, and I don’t want anyone to feel that way reading my blog. Well, I did take a great class on motivation in… Continue reading 8 Months of Motherhood and Looking Ahead to 2014
We survived 2013! And it’s my one-year blog-o-versary! In my very first post, I talked about our vision board for 2012 and all the changes that actually took place that year, even though halfway through the year we didn’t think any of them would actually happen: new jobs, moving to Portland, buying a house, and… Continue reading A New Year
It’s my first post! And good timing with the new year! I didn’t have time to send a Christmas card this year, with our move to our new house, so I can do an annual letter of sorts right here. Last year was full of huge transitions for us. At the beginning of the year… Continue reading Happy New Year!
