What do you do when you move into a new house and have three birthdays to celebrate? You throw a fiesta! We hosted a party on Saturday to celebrate Emme’s, Adam’s, and my birthdays (but mostly Emme’s!) and our new home in Pensacola. We loved having most of our families and close friends in town […]
Pensacola has some big shoes to fill when it comes to donut shops! Between The Donut Shoppe, Good Dough, and (my personal favorite) The Mini Bar, Jacksonville has the donut market on lock. This week Emme and I checked out Maynard’s Donut Co. to see how their donuts stack up to the competition in Jacksonville.

For the last year I’ve been fortunate to be able to stay home with Emme. Being a stay-at-home-mom comes with it’s own set of challenges but I’ll save that for another post. In my pre-mom life, I held positions at various companies, some of which were better than others but each brought their own learning […]
I spent most of my 20s believing I didn’t want to be a mother. I had zero motherly instincts and never experienced anything resembling baby fever. Then I met Adam and then we got married.
