Dear Penny: Happy third birthday!


Dear Penny,

Today you are three years old. I’ve said it before and I’ll tell you again and again until you’re old enough to fully grasp the infinite joy you have brought into my life. And even then I’ll still remind you just how special you are and how much your daddy and I love you. This last year was filled with firsts for all three of us. We took time getting to know each other in your new stage of discovery and exercising your own voice filled with thoughts and options. Continue reading “Dear Penny: Happy third birthday!”

This is Two: We made it!


What’s up?!

Its been a while since my last post but I’m here and if you follow me on Instagram you know we’ve been getting ready for Penny’s third birthday!

Looking back on 2017!

Well, well, well, what can I say 2017, you’ve been quite a special year! I really can’t believe how fast this year flew by. Looking back on all these pictures makes me think of all the exciting things that happened this year. We have so many memories with friends and family filled with laughter. One thing Ben and I wanted to focus on this year was spending more time with friends and family after spending 2016 being new parents. I can happily say we definitely did just that. From celebrating milestone birthdays to seeing some of our best friends get married and engaged. We were able to travel with both friends and on our own and have Penny experience it all with us.

Penny starts Preschool!



And just like that we have a Preschooler!

So it’s been a while since I’ve been on here and I really miss it! Writing/blogging has become such a creative outlet for me to get my thoughts out and connect with so many awesome people I’ve met through social media. Today, I’m back here to share some big changes that we have gone through and be able to answer a few questions I’ve gotten along the way. As you can see from the title of this post and if you follow my Instagram, you know Penny started Preschool this month. And well, needless to say Ben and I were FREAKING out about it!
