Love Bug Valentines {Bugs and Kisses!}

Love Bug Valentines {Bugs and Kisses!}

Since the kids have been bugging me recently (i.e. the past four years), I was inspired to make love bug valentines this year. So I created valentine cards with a few different “buggy” messages that I paired with adorable wind-up flipping bug toys. And because I’m a super nice person, I made the love bug… Continue Reading

But again we’ll make it through… Continue Reading

Winter White Citrus Mint Sangria

Winter White Citrus Mint Sangria

I can’t believe it’s nearly 2017! Time to mix up this delicious citrus mint sangria to ring in the New Year. Mostly my drink preparation is limited to unscrewing a bottle of wine and pouring it into a glass (and usually I just tell my husband to do this for me). So this is my first… Continue Reading

My littlest little is one month old. How the heck did that happen already? The past few weeks have gone by so fast. Knowing this is my last experience with a newborn, I’ve been trying to soak in the snuggles and tiny baby coos as we get to know our new bundle. I find it… Continue Reading
