Lovely Lately

Howdy ho, my friend. I feel like I’ve been super MIA lately, but it’s all for good reason! Reason number one is kids+family+life, which is definitely a legit reason. Reason number two is our home construction! It has finally come to an [almost] end. There are still a few punch list items remaining, but all the major stuff is finished and we are all living in a normal house without visqueen walls and workers in and out of our door all day errday! It is a good feeling, I tell ya. A very good feeling. I hope to be able to get some good shots of the new stuff to show y’all here soon! Just hasn’t happened yet!

So a little bit of lovely lately that has been happening in my neck of the woods…

… A crawfish boil with our amazing life group from church!

… Going to the sweetest Peter Rabbit themed birthday party for my niece Sybil!

… A fantastic Easter celebrating life and freedom from our chains! Love this fam o mine 🙂

Easter Family Pictures

… Speaking of Easter, my favorite springtime mom hack is to get the kids in their Easter clothes a few days before the actual day and go ahead and take pictures. That way, there’s one less thing to do before trying to get out the door for church! Dempsey’s outfit and Lily Ryan’s dress came from Row 10 and Wilson’s suit came from Zara!
