A Staycation and a Surprise

Jimmy took off of work on Thursday and Friday last week and it was so wonderful to have some extra time together as a family!

With Jimmy being a co-owner of his family’s business, work never actually stops. It’s just part of the package deal of business ownership, you know? He had to quickly run into work early (like 6 am) on Thursday, took phone calls throughout the day, and had to pick up one of his employees from the hospital (😱) but we made the best of it all!

I grabbed us all Starbucks once he got home and we made our way to a local mall in the afternoon.

Sadie loved running around the play area while we sat and watched her. It was such a simple moment but so sweet ❤️ (more…)


Hi! I feel like I haven’t blogged much lately! I guess I’ve been busy with finishing up school and living life, haha.

I just want to share what I’ve been up to lately. I decided to be organized and divide this post into three categories: life, animals, and baking. Those three topics are pretty much the bulk of my blog content, huh?! Interesting combo for sure. Okay… here’s what I’ve been up to lately.
