so, this big thing happened

You may or may not know that I was pregnant for the past 9 months or so. We kept it pretty quiet online, but now that our baby boy has arrived we’re ready to share the news! Wesley Arthur arrived on January 9, 2013 (1 week and 1 day ago), and he’s perfect. We didn’t […]

umass amherst commencement 2012

On May 11, 2012, my brother-in-law, Will, graduated from UMass Amherst. It was the weekend before the Stationery Show, and it was good that I was able to slow down for a little bit and enjoy the celebrations and family time. It was a beautiful day for the ceremonies, and it was such a pleasure […]

Audrey Ann-Marie

Right about now, you should be so jealous of us. We just had the pleasure of meeting Sara + Marcel’s new daughter, Audrey! She was born yesterday at 5:30pm, and good grief is she darling.

Rachel On Thanksgiving

My family has a bit of an untraditional Thanksgiving celebration, and it’s an event we look forward to all year long. I think there are usually about 30 people at dinner, and many seated around the table are ridiculously talented.  After dinner, we move tables and chairs out of the way and the performances begin.

Down By The Water

Oh gosh! This is the longest I’ve ever gone without posting. A lot’s been happening around here, lately! I started a new job the week of Thanksgiving, and I no longer work from home. I now commute over an hour each way and I work 9-5. I’m loving my new job, and I’m busy every […]

Bouquet From Eric’s Family

A week ago, this beautiful bouquet was delivered to our door with a note welcoming me to the Schwarz family. Pretty sweet, right?  There’s something so uplifting about having fresh flowers in the house. Especially orange and yellow ones. They brighten the whole room. There’s also something super, duper uplifting about getting welcomed into a new family! […]

Professional Sideburns With Mustache

I gave my brother of really old set of professional sideburns + mustache for his birthday. I couldn’t resist buying the costume kit because it looked like it had been in the store for 50 years just waiting to disguise somebody. Yesterday, we busted it out for a photo shoot. Max got his hair cut […]
