2017 Pre-Christmas Highlights

Happy new year!

Back to reality today after two absolutely amazing weeks off with my little family. I spent a few hours on the weekend (in-between prepping for our return to the real world) reflecting back on the holiday season while editing photos and realized I took so many pictures over the past six weeks it would be easiest to break this up to two posts. So for today, here are our pre-Christmas highlights!

Hello March

I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to start a new month – February was a tough one. Like I mentioned in My Kingdom for a Good Night’s Sleep, Bobby was really sick for two weeks. It started at the end of January… we had just bought him a new loft bed for his birthday, and he had gone upstairs to lie down because he just wasn’t feeling fantastic. 20 minutes later I heard ‘mommy…’ and ran upstairs to see that he had gotten sick… from the top step of his new bed.

reset. realign. restart.

restart2I can’t believe it’s almost been 5 months since I last posted. The summer went by in the blink of an eye… and there’s already snow on the ground. Bobby started grade two, Cordelia turned three, and I completed another trip around the sun as well. Over the next few weeks I’ll post highlights from during my hiatus because deep down those are the posts I miss writing the most.

So you may have noticed things are a little different… After almost 3 years Lipstick & Lullabies just didn’t resonate with me anymore, so I decided to go with my name instead! It will take some time for me to get everything up and running again (and there may be some broken links), but I have really missed my little space on the web, and I am looking forward to getting back at it.

I hope you all had a wonderful summer! Thank you for reading, and please let me know what you think of the new layout! ♥
