I never knew how to cook. Technically, that’s not true. If you wanted Ramen or Mac n’ cheese, I got you boo. But anything that required any spices, or chopping, or mixing, or waiting? Nope. That was not my biggest skill! So dinners generally (always) were eaten out. Thankfully, we live in a town where […]

It was the middle of June, and I was at the end of my first trimester with Judah. I was exhausted and ready to head home for a nap. All I needed was for Luke to finish a meeting so I could get some much-needed sleep. His meeting was supposed to end at 2, so […]

Scroll all the way down for some highlights from our anniversary session! If you know me very well at all, you know that I hate surprises. Especially when I know they’re coming. I never know what level to set my expectations at so usually I get them up pretty high and then get disappointed. So […]

Scroll all the way down for some baby pics 😉 Today, February 22, is my birthday. Woohoo! Today I turn 25 which means that I can rent a car, and that my car insurance (hopefully) goes down. It also means that I kind of feel like more of an adult when I tell people how […]
