This boy was my first little buddy. He came into the world during an incredibly difficult season. My dad was dying while I was in labor and eight hours after he entered my life, my dad left it. I didn’t grieve well. I thought I had it all under control, but really I was avoiding…

This could be the least compelling photo of this entire month, but it brings me such joy. A friend came and reorganized two of my closets, so now I can see everything in my linen closet. It’s the little things. Follow the series: Subscribe to get weekly summaries directly to your inbox.

I realized that I still have the key to our house from Maryland on my keychain. It could’ve been a subconscious attempt to hold on to that life, but, honestly, I just hadn’t bothered and kept forgetting. It’s those little things that make grief hard. I look at that key and I remember figuring out…

Before I get serious, can we just talk about my love of LuLaRoe? I seriously wear at least one piece a day. I’ve always required my wardrobe to consist of clothes that are soft and comfortable but look nice and put together. LuLaRoe hits the nail on the head. So today I wore my LLR leggings…

My mom adopted this sweet little guy today, so I couldn’t resist the chance to take his photo. At the adoption event this morning, I worked so hard not to look at any dogs so that I wouldn’t fall in love. I have a strict “no dog without a husband” rule, so we will just…

I’ve always wanted a label maker. Like really wanted a label maker. So today I bought one. And I let myself get the fancy, QWERTY style one, too. I spent most of this afternoon labeling things. It brings me no lack of joy to have things organized, especially the toys. When we first moved to Connecticut,…
