life lately

Life lately has been exhausting, entirely too sweet and such a gift. Don't get me wrong, being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done. My flesh has acted out, I've cried many tears - those of sheer joy and those of sheer exhaustion -  and I've seen the selfishness in my heart like no other time in my life. It's truly been a beautiful mess. 

Knox is two weeks old today and we've obviously  had lots of firsts, which I am always quick to document. First bath, first trip to Target ((that's pretty much our second home these days)), first time to church, etc. I have a tendency to overdo it on Instagram, but no shame here. This is one of the most amazing things that has ever happened in my life. I will document the junk out of this little life God has blessed us with. :)

This past Saturday we ventured out with our in-laws to the Boulder Farmer's Market. It was great to get out in the sunshine and picnic at the park on such a gorgeous spring day! Follow that up with a salted caramel bourbon cupcake from tee & cakes, a nap, and my first apricot ale since last summer and you've got a baller day, friends. 


and a solo of Knox just because he's so darn cute. ((onesie from the wishing elephant // blanket from stitched simplicity))

love.

  3. He's precious. Being a first time mom is one of the hardest things I think a woman can ever do. I'm so glad you got to enjoy the weekend and try to find a new normal. Keep posting pics, we like to see them! (and the selfishness thing - that's a hard one in parenthood! Balancing taking time for yourself and serving your family is hard.)

  8. Congratulations--you are such a cute mama! I'm pregnant with my third now and those firsts never get old--I feel so blessed to be experiencing first days of swim lessons and soccer with my oldest, first sassy words from my youngest, and first little kicks in my belly. Document the mess out of it!

  9. You guys are soo cute!! I've been seeing the selfishness in my own heart lately, too. I'm thankful that Jesus can come in and change our hearts whenever we need Him too! He's just the best like that :)

  10. You look fantastic and Knox is adorable. Also, I just realized that I do not follow you on Instagram. I'm going to have to change that! :)

  11. I'm just catching up on your blog, as I've been a bit MIA from social media lately, so this is my first time really looking at pictures of your lovely expanded family & your sweet new son. So happy for you & your husband on the arrival of baby Knox!

  12. Knox is a doll! And way to go on getting out of the house regularly - I was terrible about that and turned into a nut for a while. Sunshine makes such a difference! Also, you're looking lovely!
