Katelin & Matt 8/28/10

Nine years later and our wedding day is forever one of my favorite days.

Nine years later and I would marry you all over again in a heartbeat.

Nine years later and our wedding day is forever one of my favorite days.

Nine years in and this has been one of our most challenging years. But we’re in it. We’re working it. We’ve got this.

Nine years later and I love seeing our boys light up when you walk in the door.

Nine years later and wedding stories still make me swoon, especially ours.

I love you, Matt. Happy Nine Years! xo

The Big Kid.

by katelin on August 27, 2019

Preschool DayThis summer, Riley turned into a big kid. I don’t know how it happened, but it did.

Maybe it started with summer camp. He went for three weeks. I dropped him off and picked him up every day. And every day I felt like he was getting a little bit more confidence and just a little bit older. A little bit more of a big kid.

It’s wild how it just happens.

All of a sudden this kid who I spend all my time with, is off doing things without me with people I don’t know. He’s making his own friends, solving problems on his own (I hope), listening to new adults (I hope) and making his own way.

It’s still a bit surreal.

Somehow summer camp flew by and summer overall has been winding down and now he’s in preschool five days a week. He’s only going for three hours a day, but it’s a bit crazy.

Before I know, kinder will be here and the real fun begins.

Here’s to big changes and exciting times ahead for my little big kid.

Hello, Again.

August 21, 2019

TweetLately, when night rolls around and the boys are in bed, I sit alone and wonder where the hell the day went. Although today, it’s more like, where the hell did the last three months go? It’s the longest break from writing I’ve ever taken in my twelve years of owning this space. And it […]

Bye, Bye Baby.

May 29, 2019

Tweet Last week I saw a picture of Riley at Rhys’s age wearing some shoes that we hadn’t yet taken out. So I opened up Pandora’s Box (also known as the boys’ closet) and searched until I came across the box of shoes and found not one, but two pairs that Rhys could wear now. […]

La de da.

May 8, 2019

TweetConfession: I wrote this whole blog post about turning 35 last month and how it’s thrown me for a loop. I hit publish and left it up for a few hours. And then yesterday afternoon, I took it down. I don’t really know why. But I did. It wasn’t anything scandalous or crazy, but it […]

Busy Buzzy Bumblebee.

April 9, 2019

TweetThe key to Riley’s heart these days? Robots. More specifically Transformers. So when my friends at Paramount reached out and asked if I’d be interested in reviewing the new Bumblebee movie and receiving a fun gift kit, I did not hesitate to say YESSSSSSS. Fast forward to a week later and a magical box of […]

TweetCurrently. I haven’t been writing. Like at all. And it’s driving me crazy. I realized the other day that I’ve had this blog for almost twelve years. I just got the email to renew my domain and it’s just wild that I’ve been putting words out there for so long. Words, that looking back I […]

Rhys: Twelve Months.

March 14, 2019

Tweet Sweet mercy. RHYS IS ONE. TWELVE WHOLE MONTHS OF RHYS. Guys, how’d that happen? I mean, honestly. The actual fastest year of my life. On Saturday Rhys turned one and I’ve been in a bit of a daze ever since. He:  -Has the most infectious smile. It’s seriously adorable. His smile has even started […]
