I’ve been talking a lot about my oldest daughter, and how we’ve been preparing her for kindergarten. She started on Monday, and it’s been going well!!

In addition to getting her ready, it’s important to me to invest in the school we are entrusting with her education. I’ve been learning about how to do so with Box Tops and it’s a great way to give back! This

Milestones Aren’t Just For Babies

These items were provided by Polka Dot Print Shop. As always, I only share what I love with you! 

In a few short weeks my oldest daughter will be experiencing what I consider to be a major milestone.

My baby, my little girl, will be heading into kindergarten!!! Cue ALL the tears!!!

In 5 years we’ve experienced many firsts and they’ve all been so special. Her first bath, first tooth, first words, first steps, and so much more!!

It was always my intention to record these things in some sort of official capacity, but it never happened.

Ugh. Total #momfail.

Nonetheless, I’m realizing that these precious and memorable moments never really stop!!

Thanks to Polka Dot Print Shop I have a way to document her journey into elementary school, and record fun toddler milestones for her little sissy too!

A Special Date With My Daughter

On Monday I did a thing.

After a little planning and coordinating, I took my 5 year old daughter out for some very special quality time. 

I set out to spend quality time with each of my girls, but I had this strong urge, this pulling on my heart strings, to take it up a notch for my oldest. 

It wasn’t fancy. It wasn’t far. It wasn’t very expensive. 

But it was special, and memorable, and everything we both needed.

Cheers to 5 Years! It’s My Blogiversary!!

In many ways this is just another typical Monday, but in one way it’s of particular significance to me.

You see, 5 years ago today, on June 5, 2012, I published my first blog post, making this my blogiversary!!

5 Years!! I can hardly believe it!!

I knew this day was coming and originally had ideas of grandeur. Perhaps I’d throw a party, coordinate a mega-giveaway, or in the very least get one of those big ole gold balloons!☺️

Alas, the day snuck up on me and I am woefully unprepared. I’m honestly a bit disappointed in myself for my lack of planning, but today is special nonetheless. 

With that in mind, I thought I’d share some fun facts with you about how my little space on the internet came to be, some things that I’ve learned, and more!

Here we go!
