Read More 2018 | January Reads | Hearth and Hammer Candles

One of my resolutions for 2018 is to read more. I want to read at least 2 books per month, which, if you have kids, can be quite a task. As a mom, it’s vital for me to not lose sight of the things I love, and reading is one of the things that has…

Oh Christmas Tree

With less than 2 weeks until Christmas I’m reflecting back on past Christmases, and one in particular comes to mind. I will never forget the year we moved to Alaska. It was a couple weeks before Christmas and our first Christmas away from family,  in our own home. Who would have thought it would be so…

Alivia Gets Glasses

If some of you have noticed, Alivia just recently got glasses. We had no idea she was struggling with her vision. The school had a screening, and we got a note home saying she had astigmatism. She had never mentioned anything about not being able to see well. I got her into the eye doctor…

Kids’ Fall Fashion with Janie and Jack

Are you guys just as excited as I am for fall? Today, I woke up to it being in the low 70’s, and in Savannah, that’s pretty much as fall-ish as you can get for August.  If you don’t know, I am originally from upstate NY, and if you’ve never experienced fall in NY, you are…

Kingston goes to Pre-K

I can’t believe my little Kingston boy is in school now! When we first moved to Savannah, I had heard that the pre-k was all day, every day, and really just thought Kingston wasn’t ready for that. In my mind, he’s still this tiny little person that walked super late, didn’t potty train until he…

First to Come, First to Go

I’ll never forget the first moment you were placed in my arms. I thought, “She’s here. I did it. I’m a mother.” That first night in the hospital was grueling. You wouldn’t sleep unless you were laying on me, and, as a first time mom, I was so scared the nurses were going to come in…

I am very passionate about my life as a mother, and I just want to portray the beauty of motherhood through my words and photos here on my blog. So pour yourself a hot cup of coffee or a big glass of wine, snuggle up under a big cozy blanket and stay awhile.

If you are ever interested in a specific topic that you would like to be seen discussed here, I would love to hear about it. Feel free to message me at any time.

I am also now booking commercial photography and local portrait sessions for the year of 2018.
