29.

Officially late twenties. I can’t believe it took me until now to except it. It is strange for me as I remember planning my moms 29th birthday – like I made the invitations, arranged it all. I was 8. My mom had her third child at the age of 29. This is something that makes me unsettled of my life as it currently is. I wanted to reflect on everything I’d like to accomplish at this age for myself. As I embark on this last year of youth, I have so many goals and aspirations to fulfill. A lot of…

I am beginning this from the waiting room for lab testing to begin my reproductive journey. What did I just write? I don’t get it. Let’s bring this back to the beginning. If you know me, you know I was made to be a mother. This is my nature. I am a Martha Stewart +…

homemade ornaments

Happiness is homemade. Planning a holiday get together for my Wisconsin fam and wanted to really give it a “homey” touch.

hello to the crisp cool air of october. when i was young, i always said that winter was my favorite season. looking back, winter was full of snow days, christmas, my birthday. no wonder i loved it. as i got older, summer was my fave. being a teen – soaking up the sun, beach days, summer vacation? summer was the goal of every year. now that i’m settling into adulthood i am truly in love with the way autumn sparks my soul. everything gets a little bit cozier, a little bit warmer, ironically as the temperature drops. there is something…
