I'm about to talk about breastfeeding. If this bothers you, please read one of my past posts or go check out another blog. I won't hold it against you. It's 11:30 pm and I am feeling very happy right now. After a long day of travel for a family wedding (7 hours in the car,… Continue reading Breastfeeding joys
We live with my mother-in-law right now, and Sunday evenings is when we all eat dinner together. My husband likes to cook, and it's always delicious...but tonight he actually did a themed dinner! We ate outside, one of the lovely bonuses of summertime. There's something special about fresh air, good food, and being with family.… Continue reading Sunday dinners
When dealing with autoimmunity, balance is pretty important. You don't want to overdo your exercise, but that's not an excuse to just let it go. Today was a stroller day. I love wearing my little one close and try to do it as often as I can, but I also recognize the fact that it… Continue reading Some days are stroller days
We have arrived, and it is going to be a great week. We love coming here (it's a family place) and the vibe is just what we all need right now...a nice healthy dose of toes-in-the-sand fun. In fact, barely five minutes after we got out of the car, Big Brother was in his suit… Continue reading Bouchers do the beach!
To all the mamas out there, may your day be filled with love. 💕 (Lily of the Valley is my Nana's favorite flower and we happened upon these on a walk the other day.) #mothersday #flowers #lilyofthevalley
Happy first of May, everyone! I was feeling a little sluggish due to some cloudy weather and a "mostly cloudy, some rain" forecast for the week, so I'm making up for it with a can-do attitude and some cheerful essential oils in the diffuser. Nothing is getting me down this week! Here's what's on tap… Continue reading Making my own sunshine

I sit on the couch with Little Brother beside me, his small hand resting on my knee, warm and relaxed. We are observing the goings-on outside our living room window together, and I quietly talk to him about what we see. He decides to crawl around the couch, back and forth under my supervisory gaze,… Continue reading Mother-Son Moment
Big Brother enjoys playing with swords. Soft of course, but swords (and light sabers) are a very big hit right now. As we were playing today, I got both of his legs in one go because he let his focus wander. "Oh no, I've chopped your legs off! Whatever will you do?!" I exclaim. "I… Continue reading Child’s play
Big Brother is on his first-ever skiing adventure with Daddy, Aunt K, and Grammie! While they bond on the bunny hill, Little Brother and I are holed up watching the snow fall. He really loves to gaze out the window at the wintry wonder, as do I. Something about it makes me feel appreciative of… Continue reading Snowy appreciation
