I’ve been squeezing in a couple last shoots before this baby comes, and every newborn session I do with friends makes me really excited for our own squishy little baby to come. We had joked for awhile that we wanted to have kids at the same time as our friends Stephen and Les, but I wasn’t sure if it would actually happen. But then it did! With due dates exactly 2 months apart, and their girl coming a tad late, we are thrilled to have kids close in age with some of our closest friends. Ava Grace, you have pretty great parents and we are pretty excited that you are here.

Lately, on InstagramWe don’t have a headboard, or proper frame. The mattress needs to be replaced, as I think it might be the culprit for my constant hip pain. The built-in nightstands were clearly meant for a king, making our queen look laughably small in our beautiful, yet undecoratedx master bedroom. We don’t have plump throw pillows as they have all been sacrificed to cushioning me through two pregnancies, and all the bedding is from Target. But when I see it like this, all I see is perfection.I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 32. 🎶 Which is to say, a little tired and my knees ache and sometimes I look around and see a long list of the long things I haven’t done, but I also feel really strong and happy and gosh the list of things I’ve done and people I love is one that is surprising and so, so good. It seems like every year of late, I look back on the last 12 months and say the same thing: That was the hardest year, that was the best year. Ready for 32 to be harder and better than ever before.
