between quarantine and raising 13-month-old twins, we have spent more time in our home in the last year than we have in the entire three years we've lived here. all that time inside can make you go insane entertain home improvement projects you had long since put off for another day. besides eventually redoing ...

after seeing it all over instagram, i finally got my hands on some ilia beauty products. while i've used beautycounter makeup almost exclusively for a few years, i've been itching to branch out and sample other clean cosmetics. what i loved about ilia specifically was the fact that they are just as focused on protecting ...

considering the fact that for last year's memorial day we were just being discharged from the hospital without babies (who were making themselves cozy in the NICU), i much prefer this year's holiday to last. the babies actually slept in until 6:30am (!!!), ran errands with mommy, pit stopped for playtime at gogo and papa ...

we’re pregnant!

it still feels absolutely surreal typing that sentence. but we have the sonogram on our fridge to prove it -i'm growing human life inside of my belly (technically uterus, duh)! after a long two-year process of ups and downs on our fertility journey, i can shout it from the rooftops --WE'RE PREGNANT! let's back up 2.5 ...
