ava-mae-baptism^ Baby girl was baptized this month, wearing my grandpa’s Christening gown which made it extra special.peonies-farmers-market^ Peonies for days at the Worthington Farmers Market. These sandals have been my go-to this summer- they’re SO comfy and go with everything in my closet.pita-pizzas^ Trying to lose those last few lbs from pregnancy and having to find healthy alternatives to my weaknesses! Starting with pizza! We made pita pizzas with pasta sauce, provolone cheese, red/orange peppers, kale, onions, basil, and oregano. So delicious and the combo possibilities are endless!goldfish-swim-school^ Cuddles with my babe before her lesson at Goldfish Swim School.smoothie-bowl^ My favorite, everyday smoothie bowl recipe here.

I wish they could last all year.13355436_135259870214737_1082118626_n^ Ava spent so much time of this mat! I swear it’s her new favorite toy!
