One of our favorite months at the beach has arrived. MAY! Not only is it Mother’s Day Month (celebraaate — in our best “Holiday” Madonna voice) but it’s also that magical combination of perfect weather with the beach all to ourselves (mostly) in the gap between spring and summer breakers! Woop! Here’s our list of […]
“Unfortunately, this is not good news” The doctor’s formality could not hide the discouragement on his face. The heartbeat before I had been full of butterflies and anticipation. I blinked my eyes and it was all gone. I accepted the string of ultrasound papers as he handed them to me, showing me the evidence […]

And just like that, it’s time to think about Spring Break! Not sure how it happened, but here we are in March. Bust out the beach towels and the planners, because we’ve got The Rundown ready for you! Let’s get this month planned out, all in one spot. 🙌 Easter is around the corner too, so check […]

Book sitter. Eat entire heart-shaped box of chocolates on way back from Publix. (Wait. Just me?) But I love it anyway. A whole day that […]
The 30A Songwriters Festival weekend is one of the most magical weekends of the year for us. This is the 8th year we have attended the festival and my husband also plays every year. If you’ve never been, it’s the most fabulous way to spend a weekend in January in one of the most beautiful […]
When I heard there were umbrellas in the sky in Pensacola, I was #soexcited. Kid-at-Christmas-Can’t-Wait-To-Get-Over-There EXCITED. Umbrellas in the sky?! From Portuguese artists? Oh this has my name written all over it. Be right there. Record scratch. Noooot so fast. Pensacola is far, I’ve got kids and school pick-ups and all the things. Better […]

‘Tis the season.. of feeling super busy. From holiday shopping, to family commitments, to finishing up end-of-year work, it’s a kinda crazy time of year to be a mama! Just wanted to drop us all a little reminder to slow down and enjoy the magic. ✨ It’s easier said than done, we know, but practice […]
School is back in session, holidays are around the corner, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still on the lookout for fun adventures we can enjoy with our littles. Although my child is not yet ambulatory (hey there stroller mama), you better believe I’m taking mental notes on all the splash pads and playgrounds that […]
I never would have guessed that bringing my seven year in for an orthodontist check up was something I needed to do. She’s only in first grade! I had lost my baby teeth, had some others pulled, and was headed straight into the awkward teen years before I even thought about braces.
