  • Pumpkin Picking // 2015

    Dena October 7, 2015

    This morning we piled in the car and headed to the pumpkin patch. Autumn has been my favorite season since I was a little girl and pumpkin picking has always been my favorite autumn tradition. (After trick-or-treating, of course.) As always, getting to experience the…

  • Six-Month-Old Marina Grace

    Dena September 29, 2015

    This month, we celebrated Marina’s half birthday. Some moments, I think, “Six months already?” and other times it feels like she’s been with us for an eternity. But that’s life. The days drag yet the year’s fly by. This month started out like many others,…

  • Two-Month-Old Marina Grace

    Dena May 20, 2015

    My, how much has changed since last month. One day you have a reasonably normal newborn on your hands, and the next day you have a screaming banshee who’s shattering your nerves around the clock. In her second month, Marina presented a full-blown case of…

  • One-Month-Old Marina Grace

    Dena April 20, 2015

    I honestly can’t believe that this sweet face is one-month-old! My first month with Roman went by so slowly. Every day and night with him felt like an eternity. Matthew was working long, 14-hour days. My postpartum hormones were all over the place. I was…

  • Papa & Marina // these newborn days

    Dena March 30, 2015

    Slowly, slowly. That’s how it is these days. Cherishing every precious moment. This time I know just how quickly they will pass. Time spent in front of this screen will be rare for a little while longer. I wrote out most of her birth story…
