RAELYN is 1 year old

I can’t today with this one right here, you guys. I took this above photo one week ago, and today she is 1. ONE! …a walker-zooming, water-bottle drinking, peek-a-boo playing, itsy-bitsy spider loving one year-old! She MADE my family’s 2017, and I’m forever thankful for her arrival in our life. Rae, your timing was just perfect. […]

Raelyn’s Big Fat Greek Christening

If you’ve been following my IG stories this year, you have seen plenty of footage of my baby couin, Raelyn, who was born in January.

, , ,

I have been known to customize store-bought cards. I did the same thing back in the summer of 2014 with this card to my two girlfriends. I say back in that post that I’ve been cropping my friends’ and family’s head onto cards since I was little. It’s always been a fun and unexpected twist, […]

Easter 2016

My Easter weekend was fantastic. It was filled with our traditional pierogi-making, and family time, and laughter about this poor guy that got struck by lightning seven times (!!!). I got in some quality time with John on Friday night. Headed to my moms Saturday morning to help her sclean the house and make pierogies. […]

Summer 2015 / I want to remember…

, ,

Summer is my favorite, the season of my soul, so everything feels a little more special. I did a post of this kind last year, in 2013, and in 2012 and in the past it’s been one of those posts that I refer back to all year long until the next summer arrives and my soul feels […]
