Introducing Molly!

We had a baby! Her name is Molly Beth and she came Monday March 2nd at 11:34am. She is 22 inches long and 8lbs 11oz. My water broke in the middle of an Ikea, which was horrifying because I was all like "I NEED A WASHROOM RIGHT NOW!" and Jay is like "We have to just follow the arrows, like everybody else". And then I stood at the checkout while he ran to buy some towels for the seat of the car. Is there anything more humiliating than standing in an Ikea checkout line looking like you just peed your pants five times in a row? No. The answer is no. I cried all the way home in the car.

2014: A Year in Review

2014 was a tumultuous year for me (and, I think Jay, too). I started the year as a newly engaged person, full steam ahead on planning our wedding in May and sewing my wedding dress and having bridal showers and practicing braiding my hair.

Anniversary: Niagara-on-the-Lake

We celebrated our 4th year of being together this weekend by going to Niagara-on-the-Lake (courtesy of an awesome wedding gift from our good friends - thank you guys!). I hadn't been to Niagara-on-the-Lake since I was a small kid and my aunt lived there. It's so cute! We stayed at the Pillar and Post, and ate a super delicious (perfectly gluten free!) dinner at The Cannery, which is a restaurant in the hotel. 

Growing a Baby

Jay and I are having a baby! We are so so excited. We told friends and family a few weeks ago, but I wanted to write more of my feelings about pregnancy here. I know I've been totally absent from this space for months... it was hard to write while morning sickness was running rampant and I am still finding it hard to have energy in the day for anything other than growing the baby.
