Funny story: when we first rented the home we are in, we were on cloud 9. We went from a tiny apartment with bad neighbors to a home with a yard where Fox could dance all he wanted without a broom handle “applause.” Tyler…

Kid’s DIY Fruit Pizza

These days, Fox is overwhelmingly independent. He wants to prove himself more and more, opting to do anything he can by himself. He’s putting his own shoes on, picking out what he’ll wear to school, and telling us what he wants for meals, amongst…

Let’s be honest: I bought these persimmons because they look pretty. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I’m a sucker for their beautiful orange color and have tried a few eaten raw like an apple in the past and found that I didn’t have a real opinion on them.…

Spot the Seal for Hurricane Relief + Cheddar Apple Pie Kabobs

There’s been a lot of natural chaos in the world lately, from earthquakes to hurricanes and beyond. It’s heart-wrenching to sit back and watch everything unfold, knowing your beautiful home could be taken from you at any given second. Days before the large quake…

Playful Pumpkin Cookie Sandwiches

I love our backyard, especially this time of year. We bought a table in the spring that we find ourselves circling around each night, whether we’re eating dinner, playing games, or watching Fox paint.  The leaves have started to fall on our beloved table,…

Easy Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

It’s been a big adjustment going from hanging with Fox 100% of each waking hour to dropping him off at school and only having him nights and weekends. I get as much time in with him as I can, so I generally try to…

When Your Baby Stops Calling You Mommy

Fox’s first word was “Mama.” He said it unexpectedly around 6 months old when we were just about to leave the Safari Park for the day, and I felt like I could have floated right into the sky up to the clouds. From there,…
