Over Christmas we traveled home from Virginia to Arizona with our four month old little babe. There were a few things I learned while traveling with an infant, and I decided to put my thoughts together in a post for anyone who is feeling reluctant to travel with an infant. I promise, you can do […]

  Usually I prefer something salty, like chips and salsa. With that said, my favorite cookie EVER is the Ginger Molasses Cookie. Have you tried it? It’s seriously chewy and delicious! The first time I tried one was at Paradise Bakery. When we moved to Virginia, there was no Paradise Bakery to be found. Devastation! […]

One thing I learned while I was pregnant with my son is that everyone thinks it’s their business to know the ins and outs of your pregnancy. Did you have a C-section or vaginal birth? Do you breastfeed or bottle feed? Did you get an epidural or do it naturally? The questions go on, and […]

As an adult, I look back on my childhood and appreciate certain Christmas traditions, so it was important to me that we create some of those same memories for our son Archer. He may only be 4 months old and never remember this first Christmas, but we want to start while he’s young so it […]

With the holiday’s approaching, I’ve had several people inquire about buying their first DSLR camera, so I decided to write a blog post about that very topic! In order to determine which camera is best for you, you first have to understand that it’s about getting a camera that works towards the goal you have […]
