The past few days have been nothing short of amazing. It's been so freeing knowing I'm not going back to work. I know this is all new, and everything is super awesome in the beginning of anything new. I'd love to look back at this day, a few years from now and compare how I … Continue reading Memorial Day Weekend and first day as SAHM!
Last day of first grade.
Today was the last day of first grade for my little Hadley! I think every parent says this every year, but I cannot believe we will have a second grader this August.

End of the school year teacher gift idea I found on Skip to my Lou, and thought it was the cutest and easiest idea for Hadley's teachers!
