2016 The Highlight Reel

2016 The Highlight Reel

Is it too late to say Happy New Year?! I feel a little off coming back to the blog after long absences. Especially when I had plans to blog about 2016 a few weeks ago. Hello life in 2017! ūüėČ I decided better late than never because these recap posts are fun to look back […]

Mom, You’re Not Failing

Mom, You’re Not Failing

On the day I became a mother, I not only gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, I¬†birthed a monster of an emotion best known as¬†GUILT.¬†We all want to be great moms and give our children the very best of ourselves. Unfortunately, at some point we end up¬†feeling some FAILURE along the way. I’ve been […]

Blog Anniversary!

Blog Anniversary!

My eyebrows are raised. How have I been doing this now for three years?! Where does the time go? I can still remember writing my very first post. It took me hours to finish and hit “publish.” Which is laughable when you read how short it was! You can see it here. The past three […]

On The Farm: Family Hay Day

On The Farm: Family Hay Day

Sunday may be my favorite day of the week! For¬†our crazy busy little¬†family¬†it seems like Sunday is the only day when we can slow it all down and just be present together. And being cramped together in a tiny tractor cab helps too! Ren and I rode along with Dan to feed hay this past […]

Best of 2015: A Year In Review

As excited as I get for the new year, planning all of my goals, I also love looking back at the past year. What we did, what we accomplished, and all of the sweet memories we made. Here are a few key snapshots from 2015 that help to summarize the year:

Ren’s First Birthday Party & Campout Camo Cake!

Ren’s First Birthday Party & Campout Camo Cake!

I wanted to share a few photos from Ren’s birthday party. He had such a good time! We kept the party small (if that’s possible¬†with the size of our family), inviting immediate family and a few close friends. It was just right! I had TONS of decoration and activity ideas in my head for his […]

2-Year Boutique Anniversary: GIVEAWAY!!!

2-Year Boutique Anniversary: GIVEAWAY!!!

I remember losing a lot of sleep when I first started putting together my website for the Rustic Honey Boutique. I took a reasonable chunk out of my savings account and threw it all into launching a new business. Not a huge financial risk for some but for me it seemed enormous. I would have […]

Ren’s First Birthday

Ren’s First Birthday

Last night it occurred to me that we were doing about the same thing a year ago as we settled in on the couch to watch a¬†Royal’s game. Another win but nothing like the five hour¬†wild card game last year! Dan and I were watching from my parent’s house last summer (because of our home […]

Ren’s First Haircut

Ren’s First Haircut

I hope you all don’t get too tired of me posting thousands of photos of my little family. And if you are tired… sorry. Sorry, not sorry. (I actually never say that but it fits here) ūüôā I feel it’s important to document all of these little moments! Especially because this little guy of mine […]
