A sweet treat for your valentine 

Valentine's Day is over and gone, but these little treats can be made all year long! (If you end an argument with a rhyme, it's convincing all the time. I learned that from "How I Met Your Mother.") Anywho! I brought these mini heart-shaped pies to a ladies Valentine's event for my church and the… Continue reading A sweet treat for your valentine 

Holidays & Special Events, Life with Jameson

The best Christmas.

I LOVE the holiday season. Some years are better than others, but this one really blew every other year that I can remember out of the water. For real, this has been my favorite Christmas. A lot of different things played into it to make it extra wonderful... the fact that Jameson was old enough… Continue reading The best Christmas.

DIY // The easiest raised garden bed ever

Ever since we bought our first house a few months ago I've been itching to start a little patio garden out back. It's been a sort of dream of mine for awhile to grow fresh produce for my family...for health reasons, for teaching purposes (homeschool curriculum down the road?!), and just for the fun of… Continue reading DIY // The easiest raised garden bed ever

Fifteen months of Jameson

It's been awhile since I wrote one of these updates, but Jameson just had his 15 month well-visit and I thought it was time to document all the new and exciting things in this boy's world. 🙂 He's grown a TON since I wrote his 12 month update, in every way possible! Oh, he is… Continue reading Fifteen months of Jameson

Oct 2016 // Mother Nature’s Farm

Monday nights are family nights for us. Alex gets home for work, we pack up Jameson and the Charlie woof, and we head over to my parents' house for dinner and dessert (right now my mom has these really yummy sugar cookies from Costco at her house, which have this weird power over me like… Continue reading Oct 2016 // Mother Nature’s Farm

Helpful Tidbits, Personal Writing

12 lessons from my first year of parenting

It's been a hot second since I've written something for my blog. I've been in sort of a writing slump the past few weeks, honestly. I have all these ideas of things I want to write about but then Jameson goes down for a nap and I have to choose between writing for my blog… Continue reading 12 lessons from my first year of parenting

Jameson’s First Birthday Party

Two Saturdays ago we celebrated the Jimmiest Jam turning ONE with some of our wonderful friends and family! I've actually been trying to write this post for several days now, but my site has been acting up and it's been taking forever to get it all finished. But I think we're good now. 😉 We… Continue reading Jameson’s First Birthday Party

12 months of Jameson

Can you believe it?! We're here! One whole year with this sweet baby boy. I don't fully believe it yet, even though yesterday was his birthday and all the announcements and pictures from the day he was born keep popping up on my Timehop. Somehow I still think this must all be some kind of… Continue reading 12 months of Jameson
