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 […]
October is my birthday month, and this year the family came down for a day of pumkins, football, and food. Here are a few photos from our day. LUKE! My ever- goofy daddy! I don’t know why, but I LOVE this photo. It slays me. We love Spooner Farms! These wild ones wanted to do […]
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 […]
It was a lovely day here at the Taylor Homestead. We had my parents and brother over, and for the very first time, Grandma Myrna and Aunt Cynthia. Food is my love language. What better way celebrate a few of the mothers in our life. Mom’s famous egg dish. When she asked if I’d like […]
Bread Milk Eggs … As I sit on my kitchen stool, trying so hard to focus on the simple task before me (writing out a grocery list), I find that it is absolutely impossible. We have both had the longest week, clocking in more than normal hours at work, driving to see the folks […]

This is one of those moments that in the future, after I have conceived, carried, labored, and am finally holding our baby that I will not even remember. But right now, it has me so upset. A year ago, I had my first doctor’s appointment with a provider that was standing in while my […]
I had the pleasure of spending time with a sweet little family on their rural property here in the Pacific Northwest. It was a beautiful day full of duck wrangling, garlic planting, diaper changing, and nature loving. Here is a peek into their special Sunday time.
Confession: I took close to 500 pictures of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in 3 days, so I am editing as fast as I can. BUT I wanted to throw up a few as a little teaser of things to come. Enjoy!
(Above: Grandma Myrna and four of six of the Hustoft children. My father was the only boy.) When I was a little girl, I remember receiving a special package from Grandma Myrna every Christmas. Inside were all sorts of tasty treats that she had baked herself, of course, but my eye was always drawn toward […]
