We are having a….

We are having a... ...BABY!!! A healthy beautiful baby. Ok. I know that's not what you came here for. So, is baby a lone lady or will we have a band of brothers? At today's ultrasound, it seemed as though we looked at every inch of baby's body. Left arm, right arm, left leg, right leg, brain, heart, ...

Getting to know one another

I have seen this thing on social media lately where bloggers, like the kind of bloggers who have all the followers known to man, write out five interesting facts about themselves. It started around the New Year as a way to reintroduce themselves to their "insta fam".  I feel like I am such a sporadic blogger, it may ...

Fourth and Final

It fills me with joy to announce that Ryan and I are expecting our sweet little rainbow baby this summer. We could not be more thrilled to complete our family with one more little one. As many of you know, we went through a bit of a journey to end up here but I am ...

There was a full suite for a Tiger's game at Comerica Park, two Shinola watches, custom art, massages, a trip to Mexico and so much more. During the live auction, Ryan found himself in ...

Campus Martius: The Sand and Swings

"Are we in Florida?" Jack asked. Nope. It wasn't Florida buddy. We were in Campus Martius Park on a beautifully sunny day in Detroit. For the third year in a row, half of the park has been transformed into a "beach." There are lounge chairs, umbrellas, shovels and buckets. The only thing missing was the tiki ...

Parenting is HARD!

I woke up this morning feeling like a two year old. Worse. A three year old. I had a completely irrational need to scream combined with an overwhelming desire to cry. For three months, Ben has been waking up AT LEAST once a night. Usually, twice. I'm typically all "it's only temporary. Enjoy these moments while they ...
