  • Too many kids (and adults) grow up without having any real connection to the food on their plate. I grew up in the country where you can walk out your back door and cuddle a cow or get chased by a chicken. It's too easy to disconnect from the reality of HOW we get our food. Anyway, that's why I love that I can teach Hudson and Presley kindness and love for animals of all shapes and sizes. ❤️❤️

  • THE SUN WAS SHINING TODAY. My heart longs for long walks, sunshine, and outdoors and Hudson definitely inherited that for me. So we spent the day at the farm down the road making friends with cows and chickens and my soul feels alive...anyone else desperate for spring?!?

  • They warned me that the closer boys get to three, the closer they get to their dads and wean away from their mama's. The time is slowly coming and while he's still a total mama's boy (mama's boy fo lyfe), he's starting to bond on a deeper level with his daddy. I love watching them with their special handshake and dance parties and "boy stuff." I can't think of a better role model for my son. So thankful that he has such an amazing and loving dad to follow. They are at the park together this morning and Adam snagged this photo and sent it to me 😍 My boys. Oh how I love my boys. •

  • Cue all the mom tears. My little teeny Presley Lee is a 6 month old chunk now. She's pulling herself up to stand (constantly) and wants someone to hold her hands and help her walk ALL . DAY. LONG. Her brother started walking at 9 months and one week and I'm afraid she might beat his record. Speaking of Hudson, they are the cutest duo and I am so excited to watch their relationship grow. Presley is still a happy little girl. She's always smiling and loves dancing with daddy. We've decided that she's going to be a little fireball but only time will tell for sure. All I know is that she is more than I ever could have hoped for. She is beautiful and happy and healthy and mine. Happy half year you beautiful girl. You have changed my life and completed our little family in the most perfect way. I don't want to imagine life without your smiling face and adorably loud shrieks everywhere we go. You, my darling, are perfect. •

  • Sooooo this SHOULD be a photo of Hudson holding a sign that says, "first day or preschool," buuuuut this mom just didn't have time this morning between getting two kids dressed, emptying a closet looking for a snow boot and misplacing a winter hat (three times) and then showing up late to school...#aforeffort That being said. I am so excited for Hudson to learn, play, and make new friends! I said to Adam yesterday, my baby isn't my baby anymore. *insert ugly tears here* I will get TWO FULL DAYS a week to work on my blog, my oily ventures and spend time with this little golden nugget. Things are changing and my babies are growing but guys, I am oh so in love with them. Also I'm ready for the growing to stop. #sendcuddles

  • It's so easy to get bogged down by all the negativity in life (we all have our own "things"). Instead of letting those things control you (which happens to all of us), let's focus on how lucky we are to be healthy, have healthy and happy babies, a loving partner or spouse, and to wake up every morning without being hungry or cold or in fear. 
Our lives may not be perfect, but I will continue to thank God for the little victories and live my best life with my favorite people. Today I am choosing happiness. ❤️

  • I am the biggest #clothdiaper fan out there, and when we FIRST started cloth diapering with Hudson (before he was even born) we got a starter kit from @bambinomio! Now, three years and two babies later, we're still loving them! They just launched their gift sets and oh my gracious are they lush. Changing mats, swaddles like you've never felt before, diapers (duh) and more. My diaper bag is stocked with all things bambino mio now! #spreadtheclothlove check out the link and diaper details in my insta story 😍 •

  • Eat your veggies 🥕I realized this week that I was gonna have to think about weaning Presley soon and I just can't do it...so to delay the inevitable, I let her gnaw on a carrot. With Hudson we did totally BLW and he really didn't start eating until he was about 9 months old...he was way more interested in all things boobies! She seems waayyy more interested in trying to get food in her mouth and just like with Hudson, we will be doing all fresh fruit, veg, and legumes and zero processed foods and no sugar for the first few years! I swear that's why I have such a happy healthy broccoli lover on my hands!What are your best (healthy) weaning tips?! •
