Friday Favorites | Vol. 10

ready to go! | I had kind of dreaded trying to pack with Avonlea around, but she’s been great.  Just this week she’s turned into a great napper.  She had been in the habit for a few weeks of a few 30-45 minute naps, but didn’t sleep for very long at a time.  This week she’s […]

Dear California, In our four+ years here, you’ve given us so much.  You wooed us before we moved here – but living here…you’ve won our hearts.  It’s completely worth it to us to move back to Georgia to be close to all of our family & friends, but it will be the most bittersweet of […]

Our Favorite Newborn Items

We got a lot of great gifts & made some really good purchases before Avonlea was born.  Some that I know we will love that we haven’t even used yet since they’ll be for when she’s a little older…but I wanted to share what our favorites are for this stage.  I’ve been keeping a running list […]
