    Superhero Birthday Party Essentials – 5 Ways to Save

    Hey friends,

    Hope you are having a great week! This past weekend we celebrated Jayden’s 5th birthday with family and friends by throwing a Superhero birthday party. We don’t always do big birthday parties for Jayden, but this year with him being five and it being a big milestone in my book we threw him a Superhero birthday with all his family and friends. Jayden is that age where he loves superheroes and all things Marvel so it was only fitting to have this as his theme for his birthday. So today on the blog I am sharing all the details of his superhero birthday party, where you can purchase the decor, and how you can save when throwing a party. Read more below!

    Jayden’s 5 Year Portraits

    Hi friends!

    I can’t believe the day is here, my little man turns five! It’s crazy to think how time flies, even more so when you watch your children grow. This year makes me a little sad though, because this is the year my son goes into kindergarten. It’s a good thing don’t get me wrong, but for some reason I feel like I am losing my little baby. Day by day my little man starts growing into a young man and I don’t know if my heart can take it. I just want these moments to last forever. I remember I use to worry about my son sleeping in our bed, and now I cherish everyday he chooses to sleep with us, because it’s at night when he’s asleep where he still looks like my little baby. I cherish every hug, every kiss, and every time he still needs his mama, because I know as he gets older there will be a day where I am longer his center of his world. I don’t know if I’ll ever be ready for that day, but today I’m just thankful. Thankful for another wonderful year to watch my son grow older. So today I am sharing these beautiful portraits we took with our son and our dog for his 5th birthday. Thank you so much Alexis from Candid Kids Photography for capturing my son so beautifully. I will cherish these photos forever.  Continue reading

    We are less than two days till Christmas and a week away from NYE!

    Rome By Vespa + Travel Guide for Couples

    FEATURED ON THIS POST:

    Hi friends,

    Hope ya’ll are doing well! Today I’m finally sharing one of our travel guides from our recent trip to Italy. I’m starting off with the first leg of our trip and sharing our adventures in Rome by Vespa. If you are going on a couples trip I highly recommend touring the city in a Vespa. It was the best experience ever, we covered so much ground, saved our feet from a lot of walking, and saved so much money from not having to take a Taxi. Plus it really does feel like it is straight from a romantic movie when you are riding a vespa around Rome with your significant other.  Check out more of what we did, where we stayed in our travel guide below.

    5 Things To Help Cope with A Miscarriage – Our Miscarriage Story

    Hey friends,

    Hope y’all are having a great week! Today I am getting personal with ya’ll and sharing an update on our pregnancy. A month ago we announced early knowing there was a possibility it wasn’t a viable pregnancy. After weeks of many doctor visits, waiting it out, and trying all options we ended up having to get a D&C last week to end the pregnancy. I ended up having a last minute surgery the day before me and my mom’s trip to New York with Bio Oil. It was a whirlwind, and honestly I feel like I haven’t had a chance to finally stop and really process everything until these past couple of days since my husband has been home. Today am finally sharing our miscarriage story plus five things that have helped me cope with my first miscarriage. October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month, and hopefully sharing my story can help someone out there who is going through the same thing or has gone through the same thing feel like they are not alone, and also help them in the process.
