Hazel’s Cactus Nursery It was a long drawn out process, but we finally have Hazel’s nursery DONE! We are absolutely in love! Before I even knew I was pregnant, right before Thanksgiving, I made a trip to Bargain Hunt and came across one of my favorite Target floor lamps. It’s the marble base with the […]

When I was pregnant with Grayson, I didn’t even want maternity pictures. I took them because I didn’t want to regret not taking them, but I swelled so terribly and hated how big I got. There was no way I wanted to document that. I did anyways, and I’m so thankful because I love seeing […]

I am a little bit ashamed to admit that I’ve felt like Jesus has been calling me to do this since high school. Although, in high school it would have taken the form of a book because as much as I don’t want to face it, blogs didn’t exist that long ago. It’s a little […]

Grayson takes on Charleston There is one thing REALLY great that happened recently on our Charleston trip. Grayson graduated back to an AWESOME traveler. When he was little, like 3-8 months little, he was an awesome traveler. He was too little to care about anything, and as long as I had him either strapped to […]
