See You Later

Last Friday was a bittersweet day, it was a day of lasts in a way. We are done with our last possession in Savannah — our first home. It was a place we poured hours into, where our friends became even more family and…

Surviving with Two

Today marks the four week and two day anniversary of becoming a parent for the second time — it also marks the four week anniversary of coming home to the chaos that is now my life. (I’ve now changed that sentence more than four…

Defeat and it’s Lessons

Some days are better than others, some are worse–that is the way life works. I had a day that was one of the not so awesome days; it ended with an ugly cry in the shower. 37 weeks and 5 days pregnant is not…

A New Year

As 2017 drew to a close and 2018 draws to an open my little family has so much to be thankful for. 2017 was a rollercoaster: we bought our first home, learned just how strong our marriage was (through redecorating, buis, health issues, and…
