My Favorite Room

Preparing the nursery for baby’s arrival was such a sweet distraction during pregnancy. We agreed (easily) that the theme would be a tasteful Harry Potter one, and it came together so seamlessly. We found pieces here and there that we fell in love with or had collected over the years. Now, it is our favorite room […]

Baby Taylor’s Magical Shower

Yesterday, we were showered with love by our sweet friends and family. It was beautiful. We feel completely spoiled. The baby’s room is Harry Potter themed (surprise surprise) and so it was a natural choice for the shower as well. Normally, I man the camera the whole time, but I was very controlled and only […]

Newborn photoshoot featuring Holden Brave!

His mama is my dear cousin, Tawny (travel writer, blogger, shopping partner) and she and her husband, Christopher welcomed this little nugget into the world six weeks ago. Since “four-week-old photoshoot” doesn’t have the same ring to it as “newborn” we are […]

Fourth Of July 2016

Insemination Day!

Today, we went to Seattle Reproductive Medicine for my very first IUI. Naturally, I woke up unnecessarily early and tried to call before any staff was in. Dayna had the morning off to be with me, so we hopped in the car and headed to Whole Foods for coffee and a distraction. From there I […]

Ovulation Day! Thundercats HO!

Tonight, I took a test and saw that I have reached my high fertility window. Seeing as the clinic closed about four hours ago, now I have to wait until tomorrow to schedule my insemination and pray that they have an opening for me before noon. I think my body and mind have reached this […]
