I’m not sure if most people Christmas shop for their newborns or not, but I can’t help it. Milly is so much fun to shop for, and I’ve already figured out most of what I want to get her. In order to keep myself from going overboard, I want to follow the “something they want,… [Read More]

Wenatchee Festival of Trees

Happy December 1st!! Let all the Christmas festivities commence! If you’re anything like us, you don’t wait for December 1st to roll around before getting into the holiday spirit.

Emilia’s Birth Story

As promised, here is the novel that is my baby girl’s birth story. :) Where ever to begin? The first week of our little one’s life was easily the hardest week of our lives. The moment she was born was perfect and magical, but it wasn’t long before she was taken away from us and we were absolutely terrified… [Read More]

Emilia’s Newborn Pictures

I could just take pictures of this baby girl all day long. (And I do…) I really wanted super simple newborn photos with lots of white and dreamy lighting. I ended up taking these myself in our guest bedroom, and I love how they turned out! I may have to do a lot more of these… [Read More]
