I felt compelled to right this tidbit on motherhood, grief, and quarantine after sending quite the novel text message to Ryan last week… it read: “I feel like I am failing at motherhood because of this damn pandemic. I miss my quiet time. I miss being alone in the house. I miss being able to take a 20 minute nap without having to break up an argument or scream at our kids for misbehaving. I miss silence.

Garden Party Easter Baskets


The kids’ Easter baskets have become one of my favorite things to put together! I love all the pastels and cute spring items to choose from and coming up with a theme is always fun! We’ve been planning out our little urban garden lately so I thought it would be so cute to involve the twins with Garden Party Easter baskets!
To say I went all in on my theme would be an understatement. With all the craziness going on…
