It's a... + How We Told the Girls

Happy Friday, friends!

I am so excited to share this post with y'all! We ended up opting to do the Panorama scan that my Dr's office provides so we were able to find out the gender at about 12 weeks... do you realize what that means?! That means I've been keeping this a secret for over a month which is exactly the reason I am so excited to share this news with you!

Pregnancy: First Trimester Recap + Reflections

Phew! Let's just say I am ever so grateful to be in the 2nd trimester as I write this post reflecting on the first- ha!

This first trimester was not fun... not in the least... I've had numerous, thoughtful people ask me how the I felt during that time and I am just not sure there are words to adequately describe just how awful it was... however, I am going to attempt it today and also make a point to note the parts of it that I am thankful for!

And Now There Will be 5!

As many of you noticed, I took a bit of a blogging- and Instagram- hiatus this summer... this occurred for multiple reasons- some planned in advance and some that were more just out of pure necessity {i.e. pregnancy!!}

As I'm entering the 2nd tri and beginning to catch my breath, and have somewhat of a normal routine again with the girls back in school, I've been doing a lot of brainstorming regarding blog content... I've also done some research and conducted some surveys with you all- my friends!

In doing all of this, I've been reminded of how much it seems y'all love reading real, vulnerable, raw posts with stories from the heart where you can learn from others and experience "me too" moments, etc... And, to be quite honest, I love that type too! So, moving forward my intention is to weave more of those into this blog!

So, without further ado, let's jump in!
