Hannah's Birth Announcement

Today I'm sharing Hannah's birth announcement! In the past, I've used Shutterfly or Tiny Prints for Adam's announcement or our Christmas cards, but I came across a new company that I'm really happy with! Simply to Impress popped up on my Google search and I saw they were having a pretty great sale and had pretty designs so I gave them a try. I designed the announcement on a Sunday and requested to have it reviewed by one of their designers just to make sure everything looked right. I got the designer approval within the hour and the announcements were mailed out a day or two later; super fast turnaround time!

Whole 30, Round 2: Week 2

whole 30 week 2

So week 2. I did well... until Friday. Not because I needed a "cheat meal." Rather, our entire household got hit with a nasty cold (that we're still getting over). And when you're sick, you just want some chicken noodle soup, so that's what I had. Like I said in my week 1 recap, I'm not necessarily being as strict this time around, mostly because my reason for doing this round is vain: weight loss. So if I "cheated" with chicken noodle soup (and gatorade), I'm okay with that.

Whole 30, Round 2: Week 1

whole 30 week 1
This time last year, I started my first ever Whole 30 (see: Week 1Week 2Week 3Week 4). As annoying as the program can be, I have to admit it really worked for me. While I may not have lost a lot of weight on the scale, I saw a serious change in my body composition (always take before and after photos!). ...And then I went and got pregnant....

Hannah's Newborn Photos

We had Hannah's newborn photos taken when she was twelve days old. They were taken by Jordan Zobrist, who also did our family photos last year as well as my maternity session for Hannah. Honestly, I was lacking the motivation to do this shoot just 2 weeks postpartum (who wants to take photos when they're chronically sleep deprived?), but I'm so glad we did. The newborn phase goes by SO quickly and I feel like she's changing everyday, so these photos are something I'll always cherish.
