SUMMER: What a beautiful, relaxing season meant for spending time outside, traveling, eating, laughing with friends and family, and staying up late. I feel very fortunate to have a career that allowed me to stay at home the past three months with my little girl and witness so many sweet, precious firsts. Nic and I had our first overnight stay this summer without Ava thanks to my parents and it was nice to getaway and not nearly as hard to leave her as I thought it might be… probably because both she and I were both ready! Our amazing babysitter also had Ava a couple of days a week which was so nice… I ran so many errands, actually went to Target by myself multiple times (which hadn’t happened since she was born, really), and Nic and I had a few day dates which was a bonus. Summer 2017, you were a sweet one!
