Today is my last full day on our beach vacation. Insert my sad face right here.  We've been down on the Delaware shore for the better part of a week relaxing and enjoying the cooler summer weather with some awesome friends of ours.  It's been a great week.  I've had a couple of stressful things going on back home and just being with amazing … [Read more...]

When Nate was a toddler (he's now 10), I was at a park with him in Florida with my Mom.  We were visiting my parents and my Mom and I had taken Nate for an hour to play at the local playground.  I didn't yet have Cole and I don't remember being pregnant so Nate had to have been 2 or less which means this story is 8 years old.  I'm telling you all … [Read more...]

Real Mom Style: An Afternoon of Polo

20140608-181010-65410890.jpg

Somehow, I think this one may fall under the fudging it a little category because it's not exactly everyday, real Mom style when you're dressed for a Sunday afternoon Polo Match. I'm certainly not walking around with a floral hat on my head most days! But I loved this photo of me with some of my girls at a fundraiser for our local hospital … [Read more...]
