Video: Meet our Baby | Life Update
It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a life update on our growing family. I shared that we were due with our baby boy back in February and ever since our lives have been pretty crazy in the best of ways. As you know, we’ve been working on making our 1800’s fixer upper into a cozy home since January of 2019. We’ve made so much progress, but there were some projects I wanted to get done before his arrival. The main project was creating a nursery (more on that coming very soon), but I also wanted to work on the master bathroom, upstairs hallway, and of course my garden. I was on a timeline though so I wasn’t able to share a whole lot about them. I took a lot of pictures and videos so I plan to share about everything I did little by little. There is no shortage of content for me to share (just don’t be confused if you see some flashbacks to me with my baby belly)!

The First 3 Months
After having our baby, I decided to take a bit of a maternity leave not only from my full time job but also social media. I fully embraced this new season of our lives and soaked up every second of our sweet little family. There were countless days that all I did was sit on the couch, hold our baby, and make sure we were both fed and happy. Those days were the best and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. Now that we are finding our routine and feeling like we know what we are doing (for the most part) I feel ready to start sharing again. I missed you! I missed the community I’ve created here and have looked forward to the time I would be able to get back to sharing our home, farm, garden, and more. As I sit here writing this with a baby on my lap, allow me to introduce to you our sweet bundle of joy.
Meet our Baby
On June 16th, 2021, my husband Kurt and I welcomed our sweet baby boy, Kaden John, into the world. He was 19.5” and 8 lbs 1 oz of pure joy and perfection.
Thank you Jill Studio for capturing these special moments of our family.
What’s Next?! Life Update
As we continue to navigate this season of life, I look forward to so many things. I am very fortunate to have been able to take the next year off from my full time job to stay home with Kaden. Spending my days with him brings me so much joy! I also find joy in sharing my heart and home here with you. I’m looking forward to creating a routine, finding a balance, and experiencing the best of both worlds. There is so much I want to share. Don’t be surprised if one day you see me with a baby and the next with a baby belly. Thank you for being here and supporting me through all seasons of life. The love and excitement you share with my family and I means the world to us and I’m forever grateful!
