Very special cake pops for a very special occassion. I ordered these cakesicle pops from the lovely and mega talented Callie the Baker to celebrate the arrival of our newest family member. Thank you for these beautiful treats, Callie!! @calliethebaker


She’s Here!

Welcome to the world, Elise Natalie. Our sweet baby girl was born at 1:04pm on July 2nd. We couldn’t be more thankful for Elise’s healthy arrival!! We feel so blessed and are completely over the moon with her! 🙂

I can’t believe I get to be the mother to two beautiful daughters. Noelle is almost 3 already– can you believe it? It’s all equally blissful and overwhelming, but I’m trying to shift my perspective and savor every single precious moment as Kevin and I adjust to having two littles. And as Noelle takes on her new role as a big sister. One day at a time!

Please enjoy all the scheduled content and recipes on my blog over the next few months while I take time off. Thank you for all the well wishes!
