I’ve been seeing these super cute off-shoulder tops all season but hesitated to buy one because, for someone with a small frame, I have horrible posture and broad shoulders. I totally thought the off-shoulder look would make me look like a hunchback linebacker. However, my SIL had a super cute one on one day and it inspired me to copy her get one for myself.

Breastfeeding is one of the hardest, most beautiful and beneficial parts of motherhood. It’s equally as challenging as it is rewarding and is the best thing we can ever do for our babies. Adding in having to pump at work creates a new layer of complexity. Truthfully, I wish I would have nursed Lady A longer than I did but my work schedule simply made it too challenging and I wasn’t committed enough to make it work. I stuck it out a little bit longer with Sweet E; her personality was one that needed the closeness… and maybe I did, too.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Facebook or have read any of my previous posts, you may have noticed that I don’t post full-face photos of my girls or refer to them by their real names (publicly; I have separate accounts that are private). This was a conscious decision my husband and I made when I started this blog.

About 9 months ago, when she was about 13 months old, Sweet E started to wear glasses. I would be lying if I said I didn’t struggle with seeing them on her at first. I’ve always thought she was a gorgeous baby and her glasses made her look completely different. It was hard; I really struggled getting used to it. But after a couple weeks, I did indeed get used to it. And you know what? She’s still gorgeous.

What I wasn’t prepared for, though, were the questions and comments we’d receive out in public. Before her glasses, we’d often get comments about how pretty she was – comments that were welcomed, of course. After her glasses, those comments became “I love her glasses!” and “Her glasses are so cute!”

Over the 4th of July weekend, Todd and I took the girls {ages 3.5 and 21.5 months} on a vacation to the Sandestin Resort in Destin, FL. We were so excited because we had only taken the girls to the beach once before and the weather was pretty terrible on that trip. We had high expectations for our time away, especially since both girls are now walking, and overall, the trip didn’t disappoint. There were a few lessons learned {the hard way}, though, and I’ve compiled the Top 10 for you below!
