Happy Thanksgiving!

We’re heading out this afternoon with the free-range turkey in tow, along with the enormous bowl of cranberry sauce (ask me for the recipe!) that I made yesterday! We’re lucky; no flying (something I’m eternally grateful for this year!), and only an hour and a half to drive. Tomorrow I’ll watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day [Read More…]

With 5 weeks left…

I have some questions that I’d love to ask any of you out there that may have wisdom to share. I’m a sponge ladies. I’m ready to soak it up. I do apologize if you clicked over here today to read something insightful, funny, or not related to babies. I’ll do my best to get [Read More…]

Viva Cristo Rey!

Happy Feast of Jesus Christ the King! “The King is Jesus; in him God entered humanity and espoused it to himself. This is the usual form of the divine activity in relation to mankind. God does not have a fixed plan that he must carry out; on the contrary, he has many different ways of [Read More…]

How Appropriate

Baby Shower!

I was so blessed to have a baby shower on Saturday! Elizabeth and Caitilin worked so hard on the food and drinks, and they were delicious! It was an intimate group, as two friends were unable to make it at the last minute (we missed you!) but a great time was had by all. Here [Read More…]

7 Quick Takes — Baby Shower Edition!
