YOU GUYS! We are having a BABY… and soon. We are also selling our house and building again (so possibly moving twice). It’s been crazy around our house especially since this pregnancy has been one that has required a lot … Continue reading
WE’RE EXPECTING!!! 7 years ago this weekend, Jake and I (finally) met for drinks; our first “date”. 2 years later on this day, we were joined together as man and wife. The following year (again on this day) we announced … Continue reading
Today I look back at some of my favorite moments of 2015. It’s already mid-February…where has the time gone? Clearly, being a mom to a preschooler has me on a delayed schedule. 2015 was a fun year for Carter and … Continue reading
We officially have a “threenager” on our hands! Carter is a very kind-hearted birthday boy with a soft spot for his pup and a few of his local heroes. Over the past year, we have watched as his personality has grown into one … Continue reading
First. Day. Of. School. What?! I just blinked! How is this even possible? I feel like I am moving Carter away to college or something. I keep telling myself how ridiculous this is. I know have been fortunate to spend … Continue reading
Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Gentlemen (and ladies), now is the time to show all of the Moms in your life how much you appreciate everything they do. Moms do so much for their families, and rarely do they ever … Continue reading
Yep. I’m that crazy mom who can’t get anything done because when I do have rare alone time I end up looking through pictures and videos of Carter and Toby. The struggle is real. Jake and I will have date … Continue reading
I’ve always talked myself out of writing this post since I am NO expert on babies or dogs. After having several requests and questions about welcoming a baby into a dog friendly family, I decided to write our experience and … Continue reading
6:30 AM comes around way too fast. Whether your wake up call is a furry baby with his cold nose in your back or a seemingly happy tot requesting “nummies,” we can all agree some mornings it’s nice to take … Continue reading
I hope you all had a very wonderful 2014! It was a year filled with very high highs and low lows. We are happy to have a fresh start. With every new year comes great intentions, and this year I will try not to be so bad about blogging. Forgive me, but having a now two year old (
how did that happen!?!) and a very needy, loving pup makes it hard to find time to document their time. However, 2014 taught me that I need to be better about finding this time.
Carter and Toby (the Instagram and Blog) was an accident of sorts, which I’m sure most of you know by now. I started the Instagram account to have a place to print/share all the photos of C + T together. It’s always been so easy for me to snap a photo and post it. The part I struggled the most with was the blog. Telling their stories has always felt so personal to me and a level of their relationship few get to see.
In 2014, I lost a family member who always shared Carter and Toby’s stories and photos with everyone she met. She was amazing in general, but she had a special talent for documenting her life adventures -which has inspired me to have those same stories to share with Carter and all of you. Now, with that being said, this two-year-old does not live that interesting of a life. He is insanely loved by his family and one very loyal pup.
We spent most of December and the beginning of January apart or separated (especially Carter from Toby). It was sad seeing how upset Carter and Toby would get being separated, but watching them being reunited was like watching them run through a sunny field of flowers into each other’s arms…. Ok, not exactly, but close.
I’m excited for what 2015 has in store! There will be more time spent as a family now that Jake
a.k.a. Daddy is finished with his Masters Degree. We plan to travel more as a family (this includes taking our furry baby along). Lastly, we will continue to help animals in need.
Cheers to the New Year and to great friends!
