The birth story of our third child little Miss Alice could not have been more different than the birth stories of her big sister and brother. Even though she’s pretty new around here, she is already showing us that she is going to be a girl who blazes her own trail and does things her […]

Losing Control (AKA Surrender)

Losing It (AKA Surrender) // via The Little Things We Do

One of my strongest personality traits is that I am almost always “in control”. It’s not that I necessarily feel the need to control all the other people around me, I just really appreciate having a plan and rarely do I leave things up to chance. When I leave my house with the kids I always […]
