Quarantine Reads | Into Thin Air

Pandemics require some escape reading, am I right? Into Thin Air will totally take you to a different world - the one on top of Mt. Everest to be exact. I think in another life I must have climbed Mt. Everest. I'm pretty much obsessed with all the details surrounding this endeavor. I loved the movie Everest, and last year right around the climb window (May) I picked up Jon Krakauer's personal account of the 1996 Mt. Everest disaster shown in the movie. I read it again recently, because it's such an escape (which is a little bit needed right about now).


This sweet soul turned seven years old yesterday. Even just last week, we thought this day would look a lot different...

Five on Friday | February

That multitalented pianist above played in his very first US Chess Federation (who even knew that was a thing?) tournament this past weekend, and he did awesome. Of course we try to go the Carol Dweck route and focus on praising hard work and effort versus praising winning, so the fact that Parker had four wins and one draw was just the icing on the cake for us. 

Southern Ladies Book Club Reads

Y'all, I've been having so much fun with my new book club! Here's what we've been up to...

In November, we read the recent release Never Have I Ever. This is the Amazon synopsis:

Finn Edward | 7-8-9

Our Finn Edward is nine months old! He's mastered the army crawl, is wearing size 12-18 month clothing, and can already pack away a full size adult meal (boy can eat!). He goes crazy for crab, and loves steak, shrimp, and fish as well. He has a knack for identifying the most dangerous thing in the room and beelining straight for it. We live for his giggles and smiles - he loves playing on the carpet, flipping book pages when we read to him, being carried face-out in the Bjorn with Dada, peek-a-boo, cruising in his walker, sucking his thumb, being tickled, and going for walks around the neighborhood. He takes 2-3 naps a day (anywhere from 45 minutes to 2.5 hours) and goes on and off with sleeping through the night. Here's a look back at months seven, eight and nine...

Finn's Nursery

Welcome to Finn's nursery! It's about 90% complete. I'd still like to swap out the ceiling fan for a wooden light fixture of some sort, but this is what it's looked like for quite awhile now though I'm just finally getting around to sharing it (the little one who occupies this little space is high maintenance!).

I Love You More Than The Universe

If you are looking for a sweet addition to your little's Valentine's Day table or basket this year, I have the perfect gift! My amazing friend from undergrad, Lisa Castagnola, recently released the children's book I Love You More Than the Universe!



Twenty-twenty... our first new year as a family of four! In December, we sent out the holiday card below...
