Rainbow confetti for our RAINBOW BABY!! ๐ŸŒˆ

After a lot of tears and loss and hard freaking work, this baby is like our light at the end of the tunnel.

I hope you know how loved you already are sweet baby. By us and everyone else. We have been waiting for you for a lifetime. I canโ€™t wait to be your mama.

To my husband & the greatest friend Iโ€™ve ever had…you are already the best dad and my heart hurts in the best way watching you light up at our ultrasounds. Thank you for everything that you are and everything you make me. We are so lucky to be loved by you.

Our Fertility Journey – We’re Pregnant!!

This wall has always been a challenge for me. It just never seemed finished or right no matter what I did. Its a huge 10 ft long wall with vaulted ceilings and it always felt empty. It desperately needed a wall installation but I had to find one that was easy and renter friendly.

Staycations are our new jam, and apparently I have a hidden knack for planning itineraries that I just discovered. Our trips have been a whole lot better since I started meticulously planning them before hand!
When I shared our trip along the way in stories I got tons of questions about the places we were going and what we were eating ( I am gluten and dairy free & I bet a lot of you are too!). Today I’m putting it all here! Traveling with food allergies can be hard and seem overwhelming. It used to stop me from even bothering to travel because eating out is half the fun of trips. I do a ton of food research in my planning and test it all out for you before I share it here!

Our bedroom is officially my favorite room in the house. BRB while I redo every single room in the rest of our house.
Neutral, modern vintage, inviting, fresh…these are the words I had in mind when I started working on this room. I think we managed to accomplish just that!
