I will be sharing simple recipes, affordable finds (and what to do with them), tips and tricks, our home (wherever the Air Force and life takes us), and a lot of joyful life in between.

Why We Invested in the Nuna Pipa Carseat + Nuna Grow Stroller

When it came time to determine which stroller we wanted, we knew that we wanted to invest in something we’d be able to use for all of the children we’d love to have eventually, one that could hold multiple children at a time (we think it would be great to have kids close in age […]

Minimal Maternity Wardrobe – Summer Due Date

About three years ago when I was packing up my closet to prepare for our move from Phoenix to South Carolina, I realized that I had so many clothes that I didn’t wear and I basically wore the same pieces on repeat. At that point, I got rid of so much stuff and decided I […]

What We’d Pack in a Hospital Bag + Free Printable

Almost three weeks ago our little Eleanor was making her way into the world. Goodness, time is flying… It hurts my heart a bit.
