Since this family of 3 will soon be a family of 4, we’re trying to make the most of our weekends together and create memorable moments for Cash.

James and I are planning to buy a house out there in about 18 months, so we love walking around the actual neighborhood parts, and wondering which street will […]

Moving Forward Not Looking Back

Over the past few months I’ve started to notice myself changing. Not just the pregnancy hormones talking, I haven’t been happy since I lost touch with my creative self. Working retail full time with a nice salary is awesome, but it comes with its cons.
