I'm documenting my journey to motherhood while sharing my favorites and tips along the way. I'm so glad you're here. 



Priscilla had a wonderful, first Thanksgiving.

We celebrated at my mom and stepdad’s house, like we usually do.

I had a few less tasks than in years past, but still managed to make my key lime and sweet potato pies, Lion House rolls, and salted butter. I ended up breaking up the baking into two prep days at mom’s. I’m so glad I did that.

Choosing holiday outfits for Priscilla has become somewhat of a hobby of mine. I knew I’d love having a daughter, and picking out her outfits is honestly a lot of fun.

I had Seth choose from a few different dresses and I love the “my first gobble bib.” Ah!

I posted these side-by-side images on Instagram, but I wanted to blog about them, too. It’s crazy to me how much can change in a year— including some fuller cheeks on me, haha!

Per usual, my favorite part of the meal was this divine cheese plate. I’m still dreaming about it!

We have so very much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving:

A happy, healthy baby

Our wedding coming up {yay! We’re engaged!}

Family & friends who love us well

For me, a community of moms
