A Very Special Announcement

A Very Special Announcement

If you are landing here from Instagram, it's likely because you saw our announcement-- we're having a baby! Coming this March, we are welcoming a new addition to our family... a baby GIRL! It still feels so surreal to speak these words and we are over the moon excited to finally share the news! Yes, I’m hoarding all of the cute baby things. Yes, I’m currently diving deep into the mysterious and foreign-to-me baby underworld of things like “pack n’ plays,” “travel systems,” and “sleep training.” There’s a lot to learn. Perhaps you noticed that things were a little quieter than normal...

Three Easy Tips To Selling A Home this Spring!

This post is sponsored by Opendoor. All opinions are my own. This March, Justin and I celebrated the two year anniversary of purchasing our first home as newlyweds.

This time two years ago, we were newly married and looking for a place to settle down and grow our...
