This post is a little random but I felt compelled to share it and I took some really cute pictures of Oakley today so even more reason to share.  I’m not even sure what to title it but maybe that will come to me by…

Augsburg Fall Festival

Augsburg Fall Festival

Oakley was born on August 27,2018, which means I was pregnant all Summer.  All I heard was, “yikes you’re going to be 9 months pregnant during Summer in Arkansas.”  It wasn’t until the Peach Festival rolled around that it got really hot and super humid. …

A Summer Day on the Farm

A Summer Day on the Farm

Ever since I was a little girl, Summer has always been my favorite time of the year. I love when it gets darker later, spending my days in water whether that’s a pool, lake, or ocean, and the sun!  I was super excited to have…
