I guess I always kind-of figured I’d be a stay-at-home-mom at some point in my life. You know, after college, after establishing myself in the world as a newspaper writer or at a publishing house pouring over manuscripts and meeting up with friends at fancy bars in the evenings. I’m not sure if I’m in the minority or the majority, but at 20 years old with a 4 year college degree, I saw the whole […]

A Magical Photo Session with Kaitlyn Scruggs Photography

*I received a complimentary photo session from Kaitlyn Scruggs Photography in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own** I don’t know if it’s because of the time of year (I’m addicted to Fall) or if it’s Halloween rapidly approaching, but the moment I looked through our album from our most recent family photo session with Kaitlyn Scruggs Photography, one word came to mind — magical.

Yes, I’m still breastfeeding

While this year’s World Breast Feeding Week has come to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the last 4 years I’ve spent as a mother. Breastfeeding has been such a huge part of that. I started breastfeeding in June 2013 when our first baby was born.

Capturing Your Family Moments ((Samantha Sloan Photography Review))

We have never had family pictures done by a professional until just this past weekend. Instead, I have always set up my Nikon and attempted to do it all myself. It was easier when we just had one kid to contend with, but so much harder now with two. Let’s just say my attempts had varied results. That’s why when Samantha reached out to me, I was thrilled for the opportunity to have a professional […]
