It’s taken me a long time to write this. I would type a sentence, erase it, type another, erase it. It seemed nothing I wrote could do justice to how amazing of a person my dad was and how gaping of a hole he left in my heart. I’ve had so many people tell me Amanda, you’re handling […]

Dustin and I are unlike most soon-to-be parents. We did not start working on the nursery until I was 35 weeks pregnant. Crazy right? Here’s the thing… I am a planner. I HATE procrastinating. It stresses me out. But we were both busy with our job stuff, then we bought a “fixer upper” house, then […]

Every year, the top salesmen and saleswomen get treated to a 3-5 day vacation to say thanks for killing it that year. Dustin has actually gotten to go the last two years, which coincidentally has been […]

This is WAAAAAY past due. Last year was the first (and only) year that I got this post out in the first couple weeks of January. I decided then that I would mark my favorites as the year went so that I wouldn’t have to go through every. single. picture. from 2016 to build it […]

When I first got pregnant, I thought that I really didn’t want maternity photos. I’m one of those lucky pregnant women that have swelled since the first trimester. I haven’t gotten to wear my wedding ring in so long… I cannot WAIT to put my wedding rings back on again! But overall, I just do not feel […]

Today was the day. Today we went to Dr. Brabson’s office at Tennova on Broadway (aka St. Mary’s), to find out the gender of our sweet little. That is still only 4 inches long… seriously. We both woke up nervous and excited. I had a newborn session at my house at 11 right after our […]
