Vermont mini-vacation

A few weeks ago Philip and I packed up the truck, with MM and Georgia in tow, and headed to what we thought would be a Berkshire's vacation. If you follow along on Instagram, you know we had a slight change in plans last minute, and ended up making a game day decision to head to Vermont. Good thing both our human and fur baby are excellent travelers, and quite resilient when it comes to these things. And Philip was more than happy to visit one of his very favorite towns in VT.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again: mom-ing ain't easy.

Yes, it's rewarding and magical and amazing beyond words. But it's also exhausting and doubt-inducing and sleepless and worrisome, at times. And it's so easy to lose yourself in it all; in this thing called motherhood.

Hello, October

This past weekend marked the end of September, and it finally started to feel like fall. Saturday was so crisp, you could say it was cold- and we spent the day at a local craft beer festival with friends and family. Sunday was spent enjoying our favorite turkey chili while watching football by the fire, and ended with a family dinner at mama's house.
