    The Girl with Glasses

    I have had glasses since I was about eleven or twelve. I don’t remember the exact age, but I do remember the first night I went to our small town church’s youth group after picking up my new pair of spectacles, feeling nervous about the change, wondering if I would get dubbed the nerd or if anyone would even care. After being there for five minutes, the boy I had a crush on said he really liked my  new glasses, and it was set. I was pleased to be the girl with glasses. Of course, as I got older and we didn’t have the money to update my frames, I…

    I couldn’t vlog today; I was too busy cooing over this cute little munchkin! It was my first newborn photography session, and while we weren’t able to get some shots because she was a little grouchy, I’m SO happy with how they turned out! If you want, head over to my photography page and give it a like! Happy Saturday! bloglovin | chictopia | facebook | twitter | pinterest | Instagram | Fiction Press

    Valentine’s Day Lookbook: Coffee Date

    Well, after what feels like a really, really long time, I am back! And I have a baby, and different hair (mommy makeover, yay!), and a new body (well… not pregnant), and so many things to share that I don’t even know where to begin!

That… definitely true. But I don’t feel like it has dramatically changed my life. It’s just… normal. Normal to be looking over at the baby currently sleeping on the couch next to…

    Polkadots and Pregnancy

    So lately, people have been asking if I’m having the baby soon (as in, they think I’m almost due), and when I tell them I still have three months, everyone tries to backtrack really hard. It’s incredibly sweet of them to really not want to offend this pregnant woman by thinking I look… well… really pregnant, but here’s the thing: dude, I’m pregnant. I carry the kid ALL in the belly, so I know it sticks out. And you know what? That’s totally and completely okay. In fact, I love it. I love looking really pregnant. First of all, I know I don’t look fat, so let’s not even worry…

    Polkadots and Confessions

    I have a confession to make: I have been hiding something from you guys for a few months now. I really didn’t know how to break the news on the blog, and have just been waiting for the right moment to do so. I thought I would be able to keep it to myself for a while longer, but I can no longer do so. It’s just getting too big to hide. Mr. Owl and I are going through some life changes right now. Very important and serious ones, and I thought is as good a day as any to tell you all what’s going on. These next few months…
