Memorial Day Weekend 2020

It was the girls first pool day of the season and it was wonderful! The heat has definitely arrived in Texas and our neighborhood pools are still closed. We were invited to spend the day with friends and it was magical. It is amazing what cool water on a hot day can do to lift…

The Sanctuary Blueberry Farm, Montgomery Texas

Nothing screams summer quite like blueberries. We were so excited to find this awesome blueberry farm only a thirty minute drive north of our house. We saw a friend post about this beautiful place and we spent Memorial Day picking blueberries at Sanctuary Blueberry Farm on an unseasonably cool afternoon. The farm uses only organic…

Norah’s Baptism

There is a saying that you are the average of the five people whom you are around the most. Today we celebrated Norah joining our Catholic church through the sacrament of Baptism. We were surrounded by a beautiful community of friends and family that are responsible for encouraging us to be the faithful family that…

My husband is Catholic

Before we got married I told him that we needed to raise our children Catholic because it was the only map I had to help our children grow up to become good humans. It never occurred to me that he would desire the same path. It never occurred to me that he would become Catholic….

Butterfly Home School Project

We have had many ups and down this home school year but even I learned something from this little project that we did with caterpillars. Great things take time, great things are worth waiting for and eventually we will grow into the amazing creature that God intended us to become.

Welcoming Norah

There is absolutely no birth video on the planet that can prepare you for the actual rite of childbirth, let alone natural childbirth. Yeah you read all the articles on the stages of labor, your friends give you their experiences but the only way to really know….. is to walk through that ring of fire…

The Addice Birthing Center, The Woodlands, Texas

When I was pregnant with my first, I put on a brave face and pretended I knew what I was doing. I bluffed my expertise based on the little research I did on the internet and listening to the birth stories of my girlfriends, family members and random strangers in the supermarket. I barely knew…

Dear Third Child

Dear Baby, Just in case you needed documentation, you are so loved already! I just want you to know this because I may not get around to getting pictures printed and hung of you for a while. I probably won’t get random handprint keepsakes as a baby, unless your oldest crafty sister decides to do…

Happy Birthday in The Woodlands, Ninja style!

My girls birthdays are one day apart. My oldest turned seven September 20th and my youngest turned five on the 19th. We always try to be mindful of our budget with two parties in one every year. We had originally opted to have a painting party on our friend’s farm. We were going to have…
