For Halloween this year, Em went a little more obscure in her costume choosing. So, up until the day she wore it, we were busy sewing and fabric taping her ensemble together. We learned a ton along the way! Can’t wait to share the pics with you.
Thank you veterans! To all those that have served in my family + friends circle and beyond. And to this guy – thank you, Paw Paw.
And a little life update – very recently, my family lost our matriarch. A very special lady and I’m still a little heartbroken. She had 93 good, happy + pretty darn healthy years. Though, I still wish it were more. There is just never enough time here on earth.
Last week, Em’s school had a few fun dress up days.
On the left, dress up like your favorite storybook character. It was a toss up until that very day between Pinkalicious and Emily Elizabeth from Clifford. I think her being able to take Clifford to school for show and tell won her over. We had most in her closet – added a few buttons to a hot pink cardigan. However, the pink and black striped knee highs were a challenge to find at the last minute. For reference, these adult arm warmers were perfect for her! We just sewed up the thumbs and cut out the extra fabric.
On the right, dress up like your chosen profession. A few days prior she decided on being a teacher. We pulled out the dress from her pre-k pictures, again tossed on a cardigan and popped out the lens to her sunglasses.
She had such fun deciding on what to be and seeing what all her friends chose!
Today, Kacey and I are celebrating eight years of marriage. Eight wonderful + happy years!

Today, this happened. Em started her big girl school. Going daily brings a new routine for both of us. She was very excited this morning though she got a little sad when it was time for us to go and her to stay. Ah, little girl. Four years in a blink and I have a feeling it’s only going to speed up.
