The End of 2021

The End of 2021


Yesterday I sat on the sofa with Ryan on one side of me and Magnolia on the other. And I just cried! I do this at the end of every year. The reflections and emotions just overwhelm me. We talked about all of our big moments, all of our everyday moments, the grand times and the sad times. Watching Magnolia grow up right before our eyes is the absolute greatest blessing of our lives & also the one thing that makes my eyes fill with tears. I had no idea that motherhood would make my heart so raw. I'm four years in and I'm still blown away by the blessing of motherhood, the blessing of Magnolia. I re-read my post from the end of 2017 and I was reminded of how hard life can be, but it's always full of blessings. The past three months have been tough for me, and I'm sure I'll share more soon, but even during the struggles there are so many blessings in the storm.

Christmas Family Photos 2021


Merry Christmas, friends! 

I cannot believe Christmas is only four days away. I really wish we could add an extra week to December! This month has been a total whirlwind & as always we didn't do all the things I put on our wish list, but we still made the best memories and feel incredibly blessed. I even got Christmas cards sent out just in the nick of time, YESTERDAY

The Christmas Our Doll is Four Years Old

The Christmas Our Doll is Four Years Old


The Christmas our sweet Magnolia is FOUR! She wakes up bright-eyed every morning, pops-up out of bed, and runs downstairs to look for her elves. The Little Drummer Boy is her favorite Christmas song and the version by Lauren Daigle is the one we listen to on repeat. After three years of skipping a visit to Santa (because she was terrified of him) she is finally ready and excited to see him. Every night we cuddle on the sofa by the fire and watch Christmas movies & most nights she falls asleep in my arms because Daylight Savings has not been easy on her. Our little ballerina is going to be a tick-tock mouse in The Nutcracker with her dance studio & it gets me all emotional because she was obsessed with the movie when she was only one. At night we drive around town and she literally screams with excitement every time she finds a new house shining bright - OMG HOLY GUMBALLS - is her new saying! Her list for Santa grows by the day and I've told her I cannot email him anymore, but she doesn't quite understand the concept, ha! She is the most excited for Santa to bring her a Disney laptop. We drink hot chocolate and gingerbread cookie tea daily. Sugar cookies were baked this past weekend and she is becoming quite the cookie cutter.
