I don’t think it would come as a surprise to anyone to hear me say that it’s important to me to document my children’s lives. I think any parent would say that, really. But with all of the photos I manage to take—way more than I have of myself as a child, given the film [...]
Nora Grace is 4 years old. She’s a KID.
In some ways, it feels like yesterday that I was lying in a hospital bed, staring at her tiny features and getting to know her. On the other hand, that time feels so far away, such a blur, and like that baby couldn’t possibly be [...]
For a year now, Nora has been asking me when she can go to school.
“When you’re four,” I’d tell her. “You’ll go to preschool. And then when you’re five, you’ll go to kindergarten.”
This morning, the day finally came. Michael got her out of bed and she popped into our bedroom to see me. [...]

We had a VERY busy weekend. The biggest event? Nora’s first dance recital.
Last week was a week FULL of dance for Nora—with dance pictures, two extra rehearsals, and then, of course, the recital. It was busy and honestly a bit intense for a 3 year old (in my opinion, not Nora’s!) but the payoff [...]
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 32 and have been married to Michael for six years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
