Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! It’s my birthday today – I’m 33! – and while I’m excited to celebrate another birthday, I’m truthfully more excited to enjoy these final few weeks as a family of three. We had a bit of an early labor scare over the Labor Day weekend, which thankfully turned out to just be a false alarm (at just under 36 weeks), but it made us realize this baby could decide to appear very soon! So now we’re focused on making our final preparations and tying up any loose ends – all while giving Sophie some pre-baby love and attention. But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend + August Break!

Happy Friday everyone! Summer is starting to wind down and, between the Congressional recess and absence of a billion college kids, DC is feeling sooooo quiet these days – which I love! Next week, we’ll be taking our own little recess in the form of our annual August break to recharge and enjoy these last few days of summer. We’ll be back with new posts on Tuesday, September 2 after the Labor Day weekend! But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! And holy moly – how is it mid-August already?!?! I’m less than two months away from my late September due date with this baby, and time seems to be flying by faster and faster each day. I hope to have a couple of baby update posts for you all next week – even though this is our second child, and therefore seems way less overwhelming than the first time around, I could use your advice on a few things! But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! I’ve had a busy week behind the scenes both personally and professionally. My dad came to visit and helped us check a lot of things off our pre-baby to do list (yay!), and spent a lot of quality time with Sophie. She’s finally at the stage where she can remember and recognize relatives that she doesn’t see too often, and my heart pretty much burst every time she greeted my dad by exclaiming “Grandpa!” in her tiny little voice. We’ve also been busy preparing for the next installment in our summer cocktail series – coming next week! But in the meantime…

Happy Weekend!

Well, hello August! My dad is coming down this weekend to help with some pre-baby house projects – and he’s staying all week, such a treat! I’m excited for Sophie to get some Grandpa time, which sadly doesn’t happen nearly often enough. I’m heading out to prepare for a few projects and (ahem) tidy up the house a bit, but in the meantime…
