I can so relate to this. Making friends is so hard. Having kids makes it a little easier—always something to make conversation about with other mamas!—but it's usually takes work and effort no matter what. I struggle with this a lot. It is awesome that you are reaching out and making an effort. It takes courage! Thank you for sharing.

Fun stuff! Yay parks! Maybe it's just me but something seems different in your posts the last week or so. Can't put my finger on it but I like it. I'm always grateful you work so hard in this space; I love reading your posts each morning. xo

We made it! To the end! Hurray! I combined Saturday and Sunday into one post since we were out of town for the weekend. We got early on Saturday, packed up the car, and headed out. The amazing thing is... Continue reading

I got so many comments today from people saying they love to read these posts, which is so nice to hear. I was so grouchy about writing my post last night—and yes, I completely realize how dumb that sounds—the only... Continue reading

they are jcrew! probably from the outlet in potomac mills. i've had them a few years, but they're just basic 5" chinos so you should be able to find something similar!

Four days down, three to go! This project is so exhausting. I can't really explain why, it's just taking pictures? But it occupies so much of my brain space! I remember this happening when I did it a couple years... Continue reading

At 7:30 this morning I woke to hear Joey shouting, "Teddy! Please wake up!" When Teddy presumably ignored him, Joey began singing the Winnie the Pooh theme song at the top of his lungs. Somehow Teddy still slept. That baby... Continue reading

Hello, Tuesday. Lots and lots of pictures on my memory card today, but I think half of them were Joey taking self-portraits with the camera remote. Tuesday is trash day, so we spend the morning listening and watching for the... Continue reading

I've decided to give this project another go. I enjoyed it very much the first time I did it, in 2013. (See my posts about it here.) I don't scrapbook at all anymore but I ordered Ali Edwards' Week in... Continue reading

Any of the waikikis, or maybe ice cream. Too hard to choose! Love his work.
Thanks! Yes I'm really happy with how the turtle came out. So glad my friend had the idea!

This is such a fun group of updates! So happy for you. Our boys share a room and it's already fun for them. I'm excited for the future as Teddy gets bigger—I'm sure the shenanigans will be endless, and I think they will be so happy to have each other so close.

Sugar Shack in Old Town Alexandria va is the greatest I've ever's a blessing and a curse to have it down the road from me!
Looks so fun! Loved your photos all week. We are headed to Florida in a few weeks to visit my parents and I can't wait for the sun and the sand (and the extra sets of grandparents hands ;)

I'm a bit late on this post but I participated in Kids Clothes Week at the end of April. I totally forgot about it until the day it started, and then I thought, ok, well I can probably do this.... Continue reading

Wow, what a shitty way to spend a Monday morning! I'm so sorry. Your blog has been a favorite of mine for a long, long time now and I appreciate what you do in this space. I love the colors you chose for this quilt. I think you took a lot of heat for your dear ellerie posts as well, and I always meant to comment on them and say that they meant a lot to me. I was only a few months out of the newborn chaos myself and I related so much to your struggles. I guess I should have said it then but better late than never I guess. I hope your day gets better—go get a donut! :)
