What I’ve Learned About Pregnancy, Delivery, and Postpartum

I’m going to preface this post with something you may hate me for… I had an easy pregnancy. No, that isn’t to brag (trust me, it’s gotten me a lot of evil looks over the last nine and a half months), it’s to warn that any advice or tips I give here are about keeping…

Willa & Wakely’s Birth Story

My daughter was born June 16th, 2020 at 3:35pm weighing 7 pounds 9 ounces. She is everything I could’ve ever hoped for. As is typical of every major life event, I began jotting down the story of her arrival within a few days of her earth landing. Below is our story. [Originally posted to Instagram…

Mother’s Day Trivia

Hi team! In case you’re looking for something fun to do with mom this Sunday, hows about a little game of trivia? I typed up some questions that might pertain to more than just my own mama-in-law and thought it might be useful to others. Type these questions into an email/ Google Doc, send them…

Supplementing Distance Learning for Elementary Grades

Hello teachers, parents, and care givers! School looks a lot different today than it did three weeks ago. It’s draining, difficult, uncertain, anxiety-ridden, and really, it’s never been done before.

4 Days in Savannah

No teacher becomes a teacher in order to have those delicious spring and summer (okay, and fall and winter) breaks but I’d be lying if it doesn’t keep us locked in once we start. (JK, kids, I love my job but mama’s gotta take it easy every once in a while). Today we discuss the…

Happy 2020, everyone! As mentioned in my recent Instagram post, I started writing the bones of a five year plan yesterday (me?! Love a plan? Wild) and it got me both giddy with anticipation yet anxious for all the things that may never be. Luke and I want many things from life – some that…

Crowdsourced List of Liberal American Towns

A few weeks ago I took to our Instagram Stories to poll the crowd with a question that’s been tickling the back of my mind for years… What are the best liberally-minded towns (small cities) in America? I have loved being a city girl but the truth is, the razzle dazzle of a bustling city can…

GoCamp’s Coastliner

  Hey team! It’s been a while [tucks tail between legs]. We all get a little busy, our friends get super married (loveyouall), and sneak attack trips happen that take us away from one of our big passions: looking at America the beautiful from the comforts of a warm and cozy van. We back doe…

Ian Anderson’s Caves Branch Jungle Lodge

Caves Branch is a once-in-a-lifetime typa thing that should be experienced again and again. What is it, you ask? Give me two minutes… Let me start by saying that the website of Ian Anderson’s Caves Branch Jungle Lodge heeds the following warning, “Please Remember, Caves Branch is  NOT a resort-we are a unique Jungle Adventure…

Tikal (& a Li’L Flores)

You can’t research traveling to Guatemala without seeing ads pop up for cultural excursions to the ruins of Tikal. Tikal is a beautifully preserved Mayan village with it’s earliest remains dating back to 1000 BC. It’s massive and in order to explore the entirety of the space, you’d need 2-3 days. We took the recommendation…
