Week 5: Getting the Hang of It?

April 27, 2015

Make note of the huge question mark at the end of that post title. Does one ever really “get the hang of” having kids? Maybe Michelle Duggar…maybe. This past week was a bunch of highs and a bunch of lows all tangled into one glorious 7-day stretch. Remember when Austin was 3 weeks old and […]

Honey Bourbon Candied Bread

April 22, 2015

You guys. I honestly can’t think of how to even begin this post for you guys other than to say I had to text Nate yesterday and tell him to NEVER LET ME MAKE THIS EVER AGAIN. Because if there’s any way to guarantee a massive weight gain post baby? It’s leaving me alone with […]

Week 4: A Whole Month

April 20, 2015

April 17, 2015

Y’all if there’s anything that screams spring and summer to me, it’s sun-warmed and sun-ripened strawberries. Growing up we had a small strawberry garden that was honestly the coolest part of our garden in those days; I loved watching the green berries slowly turn bright red, and the moment we were allowed to pick them?

Quick Italian Stew with Eggs

April 15, 2015

Looky looky, a recipe! Truth be told this is one that I developed for Goldrich eggs before Austin surprised us by coming a week early, but it’s also one that we’ve had several times and just continue to love. I think my next move may just be poaching the eggs IN the soup (WHOA), so […]

Week 3: Smiling’s My Favorite

April 13, 2015

Admittedly I find it kind of silly that the title of this post talks about smiling, yet every photo in here is of my little bug sleeping. BUT! The reason is because (drumroll……) he’s starting to smile!!! They’re fleeting, but I’m not just talking about the milk-drunk smiles that are so adorable in the middle […]

Week 2: Humbled Again

April 7, 2015

If you’re wondering about that title up there? Here’s why. Honestly my own newborn updates from Wes have been the biggest source of encouragement these days; who knew that three years ago those words I wrote in sleep-deprived stupor would help so much later on?   This past week has been hard you guys. I […]
