Genevieve is ONE!

A mere 365 days after her arrival (and 367 after her due date 🙂 ) — and here we are.  It doesn’t seem like a very long period of time when I think about it, but a lot has certainly happened in the past…

Home wish list, Friday links & etc

Thank you for all of your thoughts on my move-related posts!  Many of you pointed out that moving mid-year can actually be easier on kids, which is really interesting to me.  We are thinking about just going for it, and Josh has been spending time…

life updates

1) I’ve been looking forward to today on the calendar for a long time!  It’s my first day off with childcare PP (post-pump, obviously), and Josh and I will be getting massages (for his upcoming birthday – it’s our tradition!) and having a nice…

Planner Review #7: Commit30

And it’s Monday! And December! This past weekend was full but exhausting, as many are lately.  G is just . . . everywhere, and the full time job of following her around to make sure she stays safe is draining, and it makes it…

first weekend out of the house

Well. We survived the first weekend out of our home.  I am incredibly grateful to Josh’s parents, who have allowed us to completely disrupt their (relatively) peaceful lives.  But I will also admit it is an adjustment on our end.  Josh spent much of…

Planner Review #6: Inkwell Press

I wasn’t going to do a review this morning (just so much going on!) but then a) I woke up inexplicably at 4:45 AM and b) I saw this beauty sitting there and realized that since it’s a goal-setting planner, now is the time to…

strategy of the (very) clean slate

I love a good clean slate.  New years, new surroundings, or even a new notebook tends to really drive me to a more intentional frame of mind.  I suppose it makes sense:  take away the ability to go into auto-pilot mode, and all of…

last morning at home // moving and home-buying thoughts

We have lived in our current home for 5 years.  Today we are moving exactly 0.3 miles to stay with Josh’s parents until (probably) the end of the school year.  Once our home sells, we may start the buying/renting process* and spend weekends at…
