    Birth Story #1 and Breastfeeding Challenges

    Four years ago I was a brand new mom, and starting to come to terms with just how clueless I actually was. I had read the books, I did the classes, I asked a ton of questions, but I was left holding this tiny perfect bundle- clueless.  Everything went wrong with her arrival. My birth plan (ha!) was to have a natural labor- no medication for the baby’s sake, and to breast feed her exclusively.  My water broke at 40+5 requiring an induction, and my labor stopped progressing at 8cm and 12+ hours in. The recommendation was to have an epidural because at that point I was in labor land,…

    Gifts For Kids 

    1. Lite-brite Classic– A classic toy indeed! I used be obsessed with this and it’s a great price.  2. Customized Name Puzzle– Teach your kiddos how to spell their name with a puzzle. Also makes a cute decor item.  3. Scooter– This scooter is great for small kids. I love that it has the extra wheel so it’s not quite so difficult for a small child to scoot around.  4. Tricycle– Such a classic toy! It just looks Christmas-y. My youngest needs a trike, we some how don’t have one for her and this one is the epitome of an American toy.  5. Walkie talkies– Anyone else have amazing childhood…

    Lightbox Jewelry- The Gift of Sparkle 

    This post is sponsored by Lightbox Jewelry. All opinions are my own. Receiving a beautiful gift of jewelry during the holidays is a wonderful thing, but it’s usually after the parties and events are already over. Why not give yourself the gift of sparkle to enhance your holiday looks now, before all the fun begins? A beautiful, diamond jewelry statement piece is the perfect accessory to add some sparkle to your life. But with all the gifts we need to buy for others, sometimes we don’t think we can treat ourselves. That said, I was so excited to find out about Lightbox Jewelry! They use lab-grown diamonds to make incredibly…

    Boy Nursery Mood Board

    We are only 6 weeks (or less) out from meeting this baby, and I finally have a plan for the nursery. Better late than never right?  Sources are listed at the bottom of the post.  I still am debating paint color! To go neutral or a pop of color? The room is actually already blue, but naturally it’s not the right shade so I really want to paint it.  I’m deciding between Sherwin Williams Amazing Gray – shocker it’s all over our house. It’s a great neutral. Or Sherwin Williams Mediterranean.  I decided to go with a daybed this time around instead of a rocking chair or glider because I…

    Maternity Pictures 

    Pregnancy is a miraculous and amazing thing. Through months of morning sickness, aches and pains along the way, and a painful finale that is delivery- God willing- life begins in a new little person.  Photo Credit : Wild and Grace Photography  I talk all about the amazing Cayla, owner of Wild and Grace photography, towards the end of this post so be sure to read all the way through.  This is my third time around in this pregnancy journey. Each time my morning sickness has gotten worse, but my understanding of how lucky I am to be enduring it in the first place has grown.  Pregnancy is fragile. As fragile…
