This summer we’ll have been in our home for four years. Sometimes it feels like we just moved in yesterday. I can hardly believe it’s been four years! So much has happened in this home. We’ve stopped and started jobs, brought home a new baby, been way in over our head in renovations, made countless memories, and soon we’ll be bringing home another baby!
I’m probably a little extra sentimental right now ;), but I thought I would share with you guys today what I’ve learned in 4 years of home ownership…the good, the bad, and the ugly!
One of my favorite blogger gal pals, Rachel, was in town recently and I was so excited to get to snag an afternoon with her. It’s so fun when you’ve built a friendship online, and then get to carry that friendship out into real life. One of my all time favorite photographers, Jessi, is a good friend of mine and photographed Rachel’s wedding (what a small world!), and hung out with us for the afternoon too!
Rachel is a super hustler, and such an inspiration to me as I watch her grow her business and create beautiful content. When she reached out to connect and collaborate, I couldn’t say yes fast enough!
Running a small online business can be many things: lonely, overwhelming, scary, stressful. That’s why it’s so so important to find those around you who understand the business side of things, support you, inspire you, and cheer you on. Plus, there’s so much you can learn from each other!
This is a blog post I’ve wanted to write for a long time! And I’m finally sitting down to do it. Piper’s birth was one of the hardest, but best days of my life. It was truly a life changing experience, and I am so excited and feel so lucky to get to go through the process again. We opted for a natural birth, meaning no epidural or interventions (unless medically necessary), and had the most wonderful experience. This method is not for everyone, and I know many people have zero interest in this type of delivery. But if you’ve been toying with the idea or are interested in a natural birth, then keep reading!
I get asked about my lashes a bit, so I thought I’d dedicate a whole post to my favorite mascaras and why I love them (plus a few other tips and tricks). I’ve never used lash extentions or lash serums (although I’d like to try them both). I’ve listed below which mascaras I rotate through, and why I love them!
