So Life

Eulogy Virtues

Friday, May 29, 2015

My husband and I are unfortunately at the age where we now face saying goodbye to our grandparents. While we know that we are immensely blessed to have had them with us for so long, it does not lessen the sadness of losing these significant individuals who played huge roles in shaping who we are today. 

As I look back, it’s not hard to understand why saying goodbye is so difficult. My grandparents stand at the head of our family, leading us all by example in the selfless, caring, and Christ-centered way they have lived their lives. To say they are role models is an understatement. They have shaped our family dynamic and I know the ripple effects from their lives will be felt for generations to come.

Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapers: the gross and green of it

Friday, May 22, 2015

I started this blog to not only have an outlet for my creative energy, but also to try and share some positive and hopefully helpful information. As a new mom, I have spent countless hours discussing everything baby with other moms and one topic in particular will have me talking for hours: cloth diapers. Yes, I am one of those people. It may sound crazy, but I LOVE cloth diapering and strongly believe in its benefits. It’s better for the earth, your wallet and baby’s bum.   


My Mother's Best Advice

Sunday, May 10, 2015

I meant to post this earlier, but life happened and there were more important places to be than on this blog. At least it's going up today in tribute to not just my Mom, but all of the amazing women and men of my family who have helped shape who I am and always let me know I am loved.

Home Sweet Chicago

Welcome as the Flowers in May

Saturday, May 02, 2015

One of my great-grandfather’s favorite sayings was, “You’re as welcome as the flowers in May.”After another long winter, I've never appreciated this sentiment more. If you live in Chicago, the season of spring, or rather the end of winter, is one of the most hopeful times of the year. And since my goal for this blog is to be positive and optimistic, I thought a post on spring was fitting.
