Downtown Chattanooga has a TON of adorable coffee shops. There are hole-in-the-wall type cafes with local art on the walls. Some with outdoor patios, fancy flavors and succulents in the window sills. I’ve been to some pretty modern ones as well with metal furnishings and quiches that cost $20, but could fit in the palm of your hand. Continue reading “Old Friends & New Coffee Shops”

None of it was intended to go together. Oh well! We like it 🙂 Continue reading “A Nursery Tour”
I wrote a blog on “Mommy Do’s” some blogs ago about some things that have been working well for us as parents. Accessories and gear that we’ve enjoyed and general philosophies that we’ve implemented and found to be successful.
Writing that blog put me in a reflective mindset. I couldn’t help but recall moments and things that we’ve observed and ways we’ve behaved that were…not so helpful. Continue reading “Mommy Do Nots”
One afternoon on a cloudy overcast day, Joel took Olson outside and did some yard work. Olson got a pair of Carhartt overalls from a friend of mine and we’ve made him wear them as much as we can. They’re so dern cute! It was a little chilly but he always gets hot in these overalls so I just put his little fox hat on him. Hehe! Continue reading “A Little Fox & His Father”
