• A Snowflake First Birthday

    While we were up in Indy, some family thought it would be nice to throw Harper a little birthday celebration, even if it was almost a full month early.  It was kind of a last-minute decision and quite a bit thrown together, so I didn’t even chance a glance at Pinterest.  Probably a good think considering just

    Happy Belated Halloween!  I couldn’t resist sharing with you Harper’s flapper baby costume for her first-ever Halloween.  I absolutely love home-made Halloween costumes.  The more obvious, the better.  Blame my momma for making all of mine, or blame my need to do everything the hard way.  Either way, I decided to sew her costume myself and

The decorations were perfect.  Gorgeous flowers, a beautiful cake (that matched the balloons, napkins, and

  • It’s a Girl!

    We’re having a baby girl!  Still trying to wrap our heads around that one but we’re slowly getting things into place.  We debated whether or not to find out if she’s a she but Eric put his foot down, and after we found out I was very glad we did.  Partly because I was convinced she

  • We’re having a baby!

    Wellll… there’s been more than bathroom fixtures and house guests distracting us from major house renovations lately, even if it isn’t due to arrive until January 10th. Surprise!  We’re having a baby. We found out Mother’s Day weekend and have been holding it in for what feels like forever.  We have even had this pregnancy

  • Hanging with Hemingway

    At first glance, Key West looks like a tropical spring breaker paradise.  Drinking in the streets, kitschy and downright distasteful gift shops, sun tans and sun burns and brightly colored everything.  So, most people think the southernmost point of the US is just good for heavy intoxication and fabulous food (really, really fabulous food) but there are
