Happiness is ______ {2014-W51 & W52} #happinessis

Birthday Reflections

This hasn’t been the best week, cleansing out all the yuck from this anti-candida diet. I’ve said repeatedly to my husband and friends that I didn’t even want to celebrate today. But then I woke up yesterday and today feeling… different. Head less foggier. Body less achier. A little sharper, still weak and starving but.. […]

Today, He’s Ten

I don’t know how we got here. To double-digits, just like that. I blinked, and my curly-haired, sweet-faced, wide-eyed boy suddenly is ten. I scoured every memory card, online album, and blog post for images of him over the last decade. Ten years of raising my sweet boy. (TEN, OMG!!) His hospital picture. At an […]

Baby V’s Second Birthday Garden Party

Yesterday was a full day of preparations for Baby V’s second birthday party. Because she’s shy and afraid of strangers, she isn’t the friendliest baby in the world, so we opted to invite only our neighbors and kids’ friends she sees all the time so she’d be surrounded by familiar faces. (Unfortunately, it still didn’t […]

She’s Two.

Yesterday was February 28th. Today is March 1st. With a leap day baby born February 29th, somewhere, in the middle of yesterday and today, my baby became two. Two. Here’s how you’ll find her normally – undressing. But she loves to dress up as well. Hair bows are becoming “a thing.” But then again, she […]

Seven.

She wanted princesses and sprinkles. She was adamant about that. And so, with sparkly confetti, princess-colored pink and purple decorations and crepe paper, I went to work, using her many Princess toys to form her centerpieces. We kept her upstairs until the big “reveal” at dinner – her favorite – barbecue chicken. We had a […]
