Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend and a great Father’s Day. I know John enjoyed getting to sleep in a little and then spending the day with his girls. But before we talk about that, let’s back up just a little bit and talk about the rest of the weekend. I’m […]

me and dad

Today marks one year since we lost my dad. In some ways it seems like a lifetime ago, and in other ways it feels like just yesterday that it happened. When I sat down to write this post last year, I felt like I captured exactly what I was feeling and exactly my dad’s personality. […]

Back in March, I jumped on the Stitch Fix bandwagon. I first heard about Stitch Fix when I was pregnant with the girls, and unfortunately, it just was not the right time to try out the service. Fast forward to after I had them, and I really wanted to wait until I was back in […]
