    A Clean Slate + A New Planner

    Happy Monday, everyone! If you have been keeping up (I’ve been trying to stay on top of things but my IG stories game needs some serious work ūüôĄ), you may or may not know that we make settlement on our house on¬†Tuesday and we will no longer own 130 Northturn Lane. ¬†It is definitely a little sad but honestly, kind of freeing in a way. ¬†We are making this new transition to our new life in Oklahoma and though Ryan is getting a head start by going down there before me, it still feels like a totally clean slate. ¬†Does anyone else really love getting a new, fresh start on…

    Feeling Distracted + A 28 Week Pregnancy Update

    Hi friends, and happy Wednesday. Today, and all week really, I’ve been feeling super distracted. ¬†I’m finding it hard to want to put up content when I’m feeling this distracted. ¬†If you saw my post about us selling our house and Ryan moving to Oklahoma without me, then you can probably imagine why I’m feeling distracted. This is our last week in our little house and though excited as I am for this part of our lives to be ending, I find myself reflecting and feeling a little sad. ¬†To be honest though, most of my sadness comes from thinking about Ryan leaving and me being here in this strange…

    Why I’m Deciding Against a Home Birth (even though I thought it was what I wanted)

    Well, hello there! At 28 weeks pregnant (whattttttt? Hello, 3rd trimester!), I’m starting to think a lot more about my birth plan and what I want my birth to look like. For a long time, I really thought that I wanted to do a natural, home birth. ¬†There were several reasons I thought I wanted a home birth. ¬†For starters, Ryan and I both hate hospitals. ¬†Neither of us has ever been admitted to the hospital personally and the cold environment just kind of freaks us out. ¬†I am also a firm believer that birth is not really a “medical” event. ¬†It never has been. ¬†I’m quite an easily swayed…

    A Note To My Mama, On Mother’s Day

    To my mom. First off, happy Mother’s Day. ¬†I’ll try to keep this short, sweet and to the point. This year, Mother’s Day feels different and somehow, more special. ¬†This year on Mother’s Day, I am 27 weeks pregnant and soon, I’m going to be a mama like you. Growing up, the only thing I ever really knew I wanted to be was a mom. ¬†I think it’s because I had such a good one. ¬†I can still remember what it felt like when it was just me and you. ¬†All of my best memories I have of my childhood somehow lead back to you. I feel so blessed to…

    My Husband is Moving to Oklahoma Without Me…

    Happy Humpday, friends! So guess what? We sold our house!!! It’s official and I’m so stinking happy that that’s one less thing on our minds! We’ve got this beautiful sign out in the front of our house and I’ve never been more proud. We settle on May 22, which is coming wayyy faster than I’d like. ¬†To be honest, with less than¬†a month left in our first little home, I really thought I’d feel differently. ¬†I thought I’d be sad but really, I’m just ready to start transitioning into this new phase in our lives. ¬†It’s probably the pregnancy hormones but I’m so over this, haha. ¬†I think we’re just…
