A Reason For The Season

A Reason For The Season

Today we pulled out all our Christmas decorations. Luke went with me and we picked out a new tree. Yes, we are decorating our home for the holiday season. To some it may seem to early. To others they may say "You're crazy" or "You're missing Thanksgiving." Actually, no, we're not. We will celebrate Thanksgiving next week. God willing our delivery goes well on Monday, we should be home Wednesday and we, as a family of five, will gather around...

One Year in Our Home

One Year in Our Home

Today marks one year of being home owners. That's crazy. I think about this time last year and we were so excited for so many things. I remember sitting in the car with Dan at Howard Hanna's office after we "signed our life away" and holding this ring of keys and thinking about what was in store for us. Our families thought we were crazy - buying a home and having a baby, within 10 days of each other, and...

Easter Morning in Heaven 

Easter Morning in Heaven 

Last Sunday as we sat in church for Palm Sunday mass, I was overcome with emotion thinking of what Heaven would be like for Easter and what beautiful sites Toby would see this week.  Can you imagine, seeing Jesus' face on Easter morning? I cannot, but the thought of my beautiful son having the honor to be in His presence this morning, it takes my breath away.  We were gifted a tree in rememberence of Toby in the fall and...

On This Journey – A perspective on paths, purpose, and worth

On This Journey – A perspective on paths, purpose, and worth

Let me tell you a story. I’ve been very lucky in my professional career. I have worked for some great companies that opened doors to even greater opportunities to advance my career in the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. I’ve had ups and downs over the past decade, but there was one constant – my network through the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS). Starting out in the AEC industry, SMPS became my anchor. It provided a place for...

Bringing Home Baby

Bringing Home Baby

As I first time mom, I remember wondering if I should be reading every book and taking every piece of advice that anyone had to offer. The pressure is a little overwhelming, isn't it? The new post on Pittsburgh Moms Blog talks about my scenario for bringing both boys home from the hospital. To say the least, it's night and day.

All the Love

All the Love

To the new mom who is running on two hours of sleep; no shower in a few days; same clothes you slept in from the day before; three week old baby asleep on your shoulder and the living room in front of you a mess from toys your two-year old has been playing with – I’m praying for you. To the new foster mom in line at the store. Your cart not only filled high with food, clothes, winter jackets,...

Week 1: Blue Apron Meal Delivery Service Review

Week 1: Blue Apron Meal Delivery Service Review

This is our first time trying Blue Apron and a chance to see how well it works for our family versus the normal weekly grocery shopping and (very last minute) dinner choice. For those of you that share in our curiosity of "is it worth it?" here's your chance to read about our experience and see if you'd like to give it a go. We had the 3 meals per week for two people, which is priced at $59.99. I...

Our 2017 Jar of Joy

Our 2017 Jar of Joy

We decided we needed to do something to brighten our days, since we've been in a bit of a funk since the New Year began. We have created a "Joy Jar" for our house. Some people say "happiness" or "blessings" but since we lost a huge part of our hearts and family, nearly 5 months ago, that didn't seem to fit. Our goal is to write down 1 thing a week that has brought us joy - a moment, an...

We Bought A House!

We Bought A House!

This past Tuesday we closed on our first home! Yup, we made the big leap, while standing on the doorstep of welcoming our second little boy, and purchased a new-to-us home! We spent the last year and a half (yes, you read that correctly) looking at houses but were never able to find “the one.” When January came we said “till the last week of March” – if we didn’t find anything by then, we were waiting until the fall....
