One Month of Caroline Claire

I can’t believe I’m sitting down to write about spending an ENTIRE MONTH with our new baby girl, Caroline Claire Schultz.  It feels like it took us a lifetime to get her and now our time with her is flying by already.

I’m sitting at my dining room table writing this in the early morning with her in her bassinet in the living room.  It’s snowing outside and I’m working solely from the light of my laptop as to not wake her.  It’s so good to be home with her after spending nearly her entire first month of life in the NICU.

There’s honestly so much to say about this girl, her story, OUR story… a blog post won’t ever be enough – I could truly write a book – but we’ll start here.

Gift Guide For Kids

I’m SO excited to share my gift guides with you this week!  When I asked on social media what holiday content you’re most looking forward to… gift guides were definitely it!  I was thrilled to hear it because they are by far my favorite things to create for you.

To me, there is no better feeling than putting a lot of thought into finding the perfect gift for someone you love.  In today’s gift guide for the gentlemen in your life, I included a variety of price points from stocking stuffers to splurges and tried to vary the types of gifts based on different interests of the people we love the most.

As for you, I hope you enjoy this curated list of items as you shop for your friends and family… and I promise I won’t tell if you pick up a couple treats for yourself!

If you’re a regular reader, you likely know that I’m currently expecting twins (see our announcement post here).  Since they’re our first kids, I’m not yet quite a pro on kid holiday gifts… but in today’s post, I’m relying on insights from the gifts all the other kiddos in our lives have loved in recent years.  I’m sure in future years, my kids’ gift guide will be much more extensive! Haha.

To me, there is no better feeling than putting a lot of thought into finding the perfect gift for someone you love.  In today’s gift guide for the ladies in your life, I included a variety of price points from stocking stuffers to splurges and tried to vary the types of gifts based on different interests of the people we love the most.

Everything on this list is either something I already own or something I wish I did! I’ll be sure to let the people closest to me know which is which as they shop for me this year.  Haha.

As for you, I hope you enjoy this curated list of items as you shop for your friends and family… and I promise I won’t tell if you pick up a couple treats for yourself!

Our Fertility Story: The Journey To Becoming Twin Parents

If you haven’t read my recent pregnancy announcement post, you may want to start there first… but long story short, my husband and I are overjoyed that we are expecting twins!  I had referenced our fertility journey briefly and since sharing our news and mentioning our fertility struggle again, I’ve since received countless emails and DMs requesting the specifics or asking questions, so I wanted to prioritize sharing our story with you.

Over on my Instagram, I asked what specific questions you have and I’ll try my best to answer them all here.  If you do have any additional questions after reading the post, please feel free to post a comment below.  I’ll be monitoring the comments closely and will reply and/or update the post accordingly.  I’d love to have the discussions here vs. my DMs or email if possible so that everyone can benefit from the conversation.

Special Announcement – Life Update!

I’ve been keeping a big secret from you…  and it has been SO hard to stay quiet.

You may have noticed that you’ve seen a bit less of me here and on social media in the past few months.  I had shared that I was taking a bit of a hiatus but didn’t tell you why.

There’s actually not just one reason… there’s two.
