Our sweet Julia arrived on Monday, July 28th at 6:25pm!
Everything went smoothly! We came home this morning and are settling in as a family of four. More details soon!

Good morning! (And nope- no baby yet.)
Instead, I’m sharing a post I wrote for my monthly newsletter. I don’t usually share those articles here, but I received a lot of emails and feedback and thought some of you may benefit from this discussion as well.
Do you ever struggle with self-sabotage or negative self talk?
What are your tricks for staying motivated on your healthy living journey?

Thanks for your support and suggestions on the baby wait. It’s not easy!
After a few false alarms this week with cramping and mild contractions, I’m prepared to go on time or late and am going to stop holding my breath and reading into every little symptom!
My energy is definitely lower this week, partly [...]

Today marks 39 weeks! Since my daughter was born at 38 and a half, this is officially the longest I’ve ever been pregnant.

How often do you rest?

Hey, it’s Friday!
At the risk of overdoing the baby posts, I’m indulging those of you who asked for nursery pictures.
I need to preface this by saying I have no interior decorating skills whatsoever. Our goal was a simple, gender neutral nursery and we used the quilt I made for L as the color [...]

As we were grilling one evening last week, we looked around the kitchen for a dessert idea. We had a number of apples to use up but I assumed they’d turn to mush on the grill.
I found a poached pear recipe that was done over indirect heat on the grill and thought, why not [...]
