Since becoming a mother, I’ve found it difficult to carve out “me time”. It’s usually a constant go-go-go – if not physically, then mentally.

Second Trimester Bumpdate

I can’t believe that I only have a couple more weeks left in my second trimester! It’s definitely time for a bumpdate, just like the one I did when I was pregnant with Ava:How far along: 26 weeks! 3 more months!
Gender: Girl
Decided on a name? Yes! It was definitely more difficult this time around to decide on a name but we love the one we’ve chosen!
Total weight gain: Around 1


My 2018 Goals

I don’t prefer to call them New Year’s resolutions but I definitely like to attempt to make some attainable, personal goals for the upcoming year. Last year, my only true goal was that I really wanted to make it a “year of cozy,” making changes around our home that created a more homey, warm, and inviting space.

This year was somewhat of a blur, filled with toddler dance parties, pretend picnics, and snuggles. There were also some memorable family trips, work projects, personal challenges, and the joy of becoming pregnant + expecting our second baby girl.
