Happy birthday, Penelope

And just like that, we have a one year old on our hands. A year ago today, I was at the hospital, snuggling with the newest member of the family. We made it through a challenging 24 hours of active labor together, a room full of nurses sharing our joy, and the biggest smiles on…

Bella is 10!

This little dog is 10 years old! 70 in dog years, and still as spunky as ever. Since chicken is her favorite thing in the world -the Pilot and I joke that if we were made of chicken, Bella would have eaten us a long time ago- we always said that when she turned 10,…

Happy 4th birthday, Livi

4 years ago, we were in the hospital, snuggling the newest little love of our lives. The day before, my heart was filled with anticipation. I had started to feel contractions, but I had no idea if it was finally time to head to the hospital, and if we’d finally get to meet the baby…

Oh hi, 31

I’m liking you so far. 😉 Usually when another year rolls around, I use it as an opportunity to be thankful for what I’ve been given, and also to look forward to the future. What do I want to accomplish next? Where do I want to be? Who do I want to be? Today, I’m…

Happy 3rd birthday to you

They say the days are long and the years are short, and man, I totally believe it. I remember holding her when she was a tiny newborn, and it was hard for me to imagine her as a toddler: walking, talking, dancing… and not crying all the time. 😉 Well, I blinked, and here we…

DIRTY THIRTY workout

Hi guys! Thank you again for all of the lovely birthday wishes. It brightened my day so much! <3 It was a perfect low-key day over here, spent with my little fam. Liv and I had an awesome breakfast, and then it was time to clean up the post-Tucson explosion (why is unpacking the worst??).…

thoughts on 30

Turning 30 always seemed like a looming deadline – a to-do list of all of these things that I had to accomplish. And now that it’s here… it just feels like a sigh of relief. This past weekend, my mom told me that she loved her 30s. She said, “The 20s are just about finding your…

Liv’s 2nd Birthday Party and the magical 321 cake

Spent the morning celebrating this little lady’s fabulous 2 years <3 (My mom was holding her so she couldn’t fall) Just like last year, we had a little family party here at the house on her actual birthdate, and waited until later to celebrate with all of our friends and family. It’s fun to split…

Hi friends! Thank you again for all of Livi’s wonderful birthday wishes <3 She had a great day yesterday, hanging out with her cousins and nanas, singing “Happy Birthday” on and off to herself, and had the cutest little skip to her step. She hopped and twirled even more than usual yesterday 😉  The morning…

Happy 2nd Birthday to You

Happy birthday to youuuuuu, happy birthday, little lovebug, happy birthday to you! Yesterday, Livi asked if she could go back in my belly. I tried to explain to her that besides the whole size thing, being in my belly was how she first started to grow until she was ready to be out in the…

all things good

Hi friends! Hope you’ve had a wonderful day. Thank you so much for the beautiful birthday wishes! It was a perfect day spent with everyone I love so much. Madre came over to the house this morning and cut my hair, which was a special treat. I was going to stop by her salon with…

twenty nine

It has a nice ring to it. 😉 Once upon a time, I had a pretty solid idea of where I pictured myself at 29: working in a corporate environment, done having kids by now, and living in one spot for more than a couple of years at a time. As I begin my 29th…
