Polkadot Sweater & Red Heels Project | Elle Marie 5 Years!

This girl. If I could tell you how I feel about her – I think we would be talking for the rest of my life. She is sugar, and she’s biscuits, and she’s kindness and she’s gratitude and she’s caring and she’s LOVE. Ellie is love. She is charmingly awkward (is that me, too? LOL)…

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. Looked through RAWS. Hard Drives. Folders. We just simply thought we had them and this is a BIG reason we have a three…

Welcome to the world of Ellie…where one minute she’s telling you she loves Daddy and NOT you, and the next…and I mean literally seconds later, she tells you how pretty your hair is, HA!

Ellie’s Top Five Hilarious Videos | Happy Birthday Ellie!

We just finished watching these videos before posting and I’m dying laughing — this is what I should do EVERY morning to start my day haha! Ellie’s little three years on Earth is hardest to come to terms with because hers has gone the fastest for me. I look at videos from her just a…

Regrets | Salt & Sunshine Series

This is a tough one for me. But in my heart, I know it is so relatable for everyone. Regret is a powerful emotion. It’s consuming, it’s obsessive, it’s cruel, it’s justified. Regret is hard, but if you flip it on it’s back, you will truly see that regret is a lesson. I’ve tried to figure out…

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

She is sooo middle child in every beautiful way possible. Ellie..you’re a MESS GIRL a total mess!!!

Paychecks + Valentines | Salt & Sunshine Series

I used to think that a successful holiday meant BIG presents, flashy, WOW-I-can’t-believe-you-bought-me-a-car/diamonds/etc … in order to be a good holiday. I thought if I could nail the holidays and do things that looked like perfection on the outside, the inside of me would feel better..but it’s NOT how it goes. I know this now…

Signs A New Baby Was Here | New Mom Series

They’re back! The bruises, the quick nods that feel like hours. What am I talking about right now?! Is this new baby exhausted delirium? Maybe..but at least I was able to crank out this blog post! Can I get an Amen!? New babies make their presence known even when they’re not in your arms by…

Turning Two, Pahnnncakes + Savage Seastars | Elle Marie

Oh Ellie are you always getting the short end of the stick? If so, will Autumn even have a stick, period? I am a slacker mama when it comes to blogging as often as I did for Cammy when there was just one little one around..but life just “picks up” and moves at an insane…

Two Weeks with Three, Four and Under | New Mom Series

Was that title confusing!? Well, so is life right now! And routine, and problem solving, and not having enough hands to handle all situations occurring in this household all at once! Or occurring in public places like grocery stores, ohhhh what have we gotten ourselves into!? I have to say first of all I am…

Third Baby Final Thoughts, Worries + Hopes | New Mom Series

This isn’t my first rodeo, we all know that by now if you’ve seen my blog, Instagram, “about me” on my website. My life revolves around these girls and always has…and when we just had Cammy, it was like the entire world revolved around her and her needs exclusively for us. We were SO worried…
