Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie 3 + 3 1/2 Years!

I’m sitting here in mother-of-a-middle-child disbelief, we have no pictures from Ellie’s THIRD sweater & polka dot shoot at all. I shot them, but we never posted them and I can’t find them.

This season of our lives, it’s been an incredible, beautiful whirlwind but we are feeling SO backed up and behind regarding this sweet little girl and her heel and sweater project!!!

New Every Morning | Saltwater + Grace

This season. I am currently existing as 90% shell of human and 10% living human.

Sticky Note Jerk | New Mom Series

I have this daughter that is virtually a clone of me…and that’s not always such a cute thing.

Planes + Pumping | New Mom Series

Key West, New York, Georgia, British Virgin Islands…I’ve lugged a breast pump and these hard working ladies on a LOT of trips, haha!

Autumn’s Birth Video | Life By The Sea

The Hum | Business Owning Mama

A couple of weeks ago, I heard a life changing podcast. Who in the house is a Shonda Rhimes fan?! That woman is a powerhouse, an incredible force, or as she says in her Ted Talk…she’s a titan. I feel like so many of us are titans in our own way, in our destined elements. When…
