Talk to You in Texas!

Hey, friends!

Today is our last day on the road to Tennessee. I’m spending about 2 weeks with my in-laws en route on our move to Texas.


Moving day was Tuesday and lets just say it was rough. I was extremely anxious because things were not the organized. And Claire just decided to not nap THE WHOLE DAY so I couldn’t even help organize if I wanted to. By the end of it, both of us were crying. But we managed to fit everything we wanted in a trailer on our car & made out okay.

Thankfully our travels have been MUCH better than moving day. We visited Niagara Falls & one of our close friends on the way.


I mentioned it before, but starting tonight when I get to my in-laws, I’m taking a break from all social media, blog included, until we get to Texas & get settled in. I can’t really say exactly when I’ll be back, but probably late August after we have moved in.

It’s weird to say I’m just going to let my blog go dark for a while, but I know I need this & don’t feel guilty about it at all. I thought of having guest posts or posts buffered up in advance for this time, but then I’d be tempted to come & read comments and make sure things posted. So I decided to just let it be. I know it’ll all still be here when I get back. I also decided not to take “blog pics” of everything just to blog about it when I get back. I really want to live in the present the next few weeks and just enjoy time with family without interruption.

Talk to you in Texas!

Run to Home Base 9K

Run to Home Base

Hey guys! I am super busy since we are peacing out of Boston on Wednesday omg! But I just wanted to pop in for a quick recap of my first post-baby race.  I signed up for this race only about a month in advance. My husband ran it last year and had a great time. I really just wanted one last race in Boston. But my plans to train for this got foiled by being sleep deprived (still), it being WAY hot and humid lately, and just the logistics … { Keep Reading }

100 Days of Breastfeeding

Today marks my 100th day of breastfeeding! I haven't really said anything about breastfeeding before or during my pregnancy other than I wanted to do it. In fact, I think I have been pretty quiet about the whole matter because one of my good friends said to me the other day, "Oh, I didn't know you were nursing!" I guess I could be a little more vocal about it ;) I've been pretty lucky on my breastfeeding journey and although I haven't … { Keep Reading }

WIAW: Portland, Maine Eats


Happy Wednesday!  Crazy fact of the day: I am leaving Massachusetts a week from today! We just started packing last night. I've been a little sad the past few days, but now that we started packing some, I'm getting excited for a change of pace. I am busy, busy, busy from it all though, so I have no idea when I'll be popping in on here before then! Over the weekend, I took a day trip to Portland, Maine. It was on our bucket list of … { Keep Reading }

Claire: 3 Months

At three months old, I feel like Claire is exiting the newborn stage and entering grown up baby-dom. She isn't this little sleepy fragile baby anymore. She really has some personality developing and is much more wakeful & alert in new ways every day.  Her happiest time continues to be the morning, where we get lots of smiles (that I can never seem to capture on camera!). She always smiles when dad holds her, you pinch her cheeks … { Keep Reading }

More Thoughts on Moving

I'm sitting here in my typical Sunday night rut of I-need-a-post-for-Monday-but-I-don't-want-to-write-it. You all know I'm busy. Busy really doesn't even describe it right now. But every Sunday night is becoming the same thing, the same thoughts. I'm so busy that I don't really have time to write a post, but I try to bang one out real quick to get my blogging fix or just say "oh well."  I could write about my friend Chloe coming out for … { Keep Reading }

Mind Dump: The Next 3 Weeks

Scenes from the 4th

Hey guys!  I didn't check in after the 4th because I really did nothing for the long weekend - and it was great! The weekend of the 4th was the only weekend we have free all month so we took it easy and did nada. It was much-needed.  Scenes from the 4th { Claire on dad's lap at Church // Donuts on the 4th because 'Merica // 4th All-American dinner // Yummy Sunday night pork chops & salad }  Do you ever just … { Keep Reading }
