2018 Recap

Here we are, at the start of another new year. 2018 was our first full year with Milly, and it was a great one, but also very bittersweet because she has changed so much from the start of the year to the end of the year. Cheers to reflecting back on great times and looking forward to… [Read More]

Emilia’s First Birthday

These kinds of posts are my favorite to write – probably because I love celebrating. Emilia turned one on October 19th, and gosh – I can’t believe how fast that first year goes! Her birthday was on a Friday, and Marty and I took the day off to celebrate her to the max. On her… [Read More]

First Father’s Day (& Mother’s Day)

Happy FIRST Father’s Day to the best husband and the best daddy to Milly! Just look at that itty bitty baby! Today is all about our favorite guy! We have a few things up our sleeve to celebrate him, and it’s all starting with this morning. I’m downstairs with our noisy, early-rising baby, while he… [Read More]

MDW 2018

Baby’s first Memorial Day weekend was a success! I had a girls night with my bestie where we sat outside and sipped rosé slushees at a local fruit stand. Our little family of three had a fun day and night at my MIL’s lake house with family where Milly got to experience her first boat… [Read More]

Happy NYE!

The baby slept from about 11pm to 6am. (Wahoo!) I’m pretty tired and should probably go back to sleep, but instead I’m laying here in bed sipping a delicious cup of piping hot coffee and thinking of the new year. I was pregnant for most of 2017, so this will be our first full year… [Read More]

Christmas 2017

We look forward to Christmas so much, and then it’s over in the blink of an eye. From about Thursday to Monday (Christmas day) we had lots of friends and family to see and a few Christmas gatherings to attend, while I tried to watch lots of Christmas movies, bake, and cram all the festiveness… [Read More]

A Very Milly Christmas

Having the holidays off for maternity leave is pretty fabulous. Right now I’ve got a sweet sleeping babe right next to me, a delicious cup of coffee in a Christmas mug, and Friends on TV. (I really should put on a Christmas movie… oh well!) Since this is Milly’s first Christmas, I’ve made it my… [Read More]

Newborn Stocking Stuffers

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care. I always loved opening up my stocking first thing on Christmas morning. My mom is an excellent stocking stuffer, and now it’s my turn! I’m not sure what I’ll put in Emilia’s stocking, but I’m envisioning hair bows, baby lotion, cute socks, and a warm winter hat. Here… [Read More]

Emilia’s Newborn Christmas List

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. My halls were decked before Thanksgiving. I always do it the weekend before, so when Thanksgiving is over it’s done and I can enjoy it rather than dragging… [Read More]
