I’ll Sleep Later

When I had Bear, there were so many things I didn’t foresee. For instance when I was watching the LSU football game at 35 weeks gestation, I didn’t foresee having a baby that night. I didn’t foresee how much work having a baby really is, I didn’t foresee how such a tiny little person could…

She laughed.

I need to make a disclaimer. I’d like to address that blessing and blessed are not bad words. It’s more and more that perhaps they are overused or even misunderstood and social media has played a large role in this. I do not think that before I had Bear I was not blessed and now…

Becoming A Mom

I love Bear so much it hurts sometimes. Even when I am keeping in the mindset of savoring every moment, I still can’t get enough of his smile and his snuggles and his stories that he seems to tell me. Sure there are moments of frustration, but mostly, I just love every little thing about…

Tummy Time

  My son Bear is now a little over 3 months old. Each day is different for us at the moment. He hasn’t quite “put me on a schedule,” and I am going to spare myself the frustration of trying to put him on one. Some days we go for a walk, some days we get…

the real Christmas

This Christmas is so special and so hard at the same time. With the sleep deprivation mixed with the constant need to have everything perfect, it can be a real struggle. In some ways having a new baby can make it feel not as much like Christmas. In others, I believe it feels more like…

August 9th

I’ve really let the whole blog thing go for a while now. At times it was for lack of inspiration, busyness, or laziness, but also I have purposely held back writing about my life for a couple of reasons. The first is pretty natural. Anytime you’ve waited on something that seems too good to be…

la vie en rose

My friends are slowly moving out of apartments into homes. New homes, newly renovated homes, and then not-so-newly-renovated homes. I had coffee with a friend that has recently moved and is dreaming of remodeling her new kitchen to be a little more modern—and more her taste. She loves her home and is so thankful, but…

More

We’ve just left the season that can tend to demand “more, more, more.” Not to be cliché, but it is certainly a slippery slope in which we’ve all lost our footing, ended up at the bottom, and felt like we can’t quite get out of our funk and into the spirit of Christmas. You’ve done…

Bittersweet Thanksgiving

This past Thanksgiving, with all the many reasons to feel thankful, I just didn’t. I could not bring myself to feel thankful, to give thanks, etc. Now, I did thank God for my family, and felt thankful when I was around them, but mostly, I just felt irritable, and even angry at times. I told…

L’Impression D’Antilope

I have a new obsession. It’s antelope print. I just recently discovered it, and while I don’t own any antelope print, I feel that everyone needs some. In fact, my dilemma is mainly how to confine it. I think I like the idea of it being in every room. It’s just gorgeous and whimsical and…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sometimes I get in a rut about holiday decorations. I guess it feels like sometimes it may be in vain, no one will see them, what’s the use, too much effort/time spent on them, the list can go on. But in my heart-to-home group last year, one of our heart moms talked about serving others,…

A new kind of bucket list

As much as we pretend to hate change, we always look forward to the shifting of seasons: in weather and also our lives. When I look back on my life, every season carried its own challenges and stresses, but when I look forward to coming seasons of my life, they look… well, just about perfect….
