As I start to write this, I’m breathing out a huge sigh of relief because I can finally stop keeping secrets from you guys!! You may have seen our video on instagram today (which I also added to this post below), but Cole and I are PREGNANT with our first baby, and we are just absolutely over the moon excited!! And also incredibly terrified/nervous…you know, all of the mixed up emotions that come with the idea of bringing a little human into the world combined with those wonderful pregnancy hormones which I’ve become accustom to over the last several weeks. Ahhh – I feel like I have so much to catch you all up on!! In this post, I’m going to talk about our journey to baby Green #1 so far, including how we found out, how far along we are, our due date, and all the basic stuff.  Pregnancy has been a wild ride so far, and since I had to wait to share the news, I did decided to keep a little weekly journal of all the things I was feeling, craving, thinking, Googling, etc., so I could come back and share them here on the blog. I’ll be following up this Friday with a bumpdate on my first trimester experience, and there will be lots more to come (apologies upfront for the influx of pregnancy and baby posts to come, y’all – this is just probably the most exciting and terrifying time of our lives!) – so stay tuned!

To celebrate our exciting news, we teamed up with one of our favorite brands, Jon Hart Design, to create a little reveal video AND to give one lucky winner a Jon Hart backpack in the color and customization of their choice.

After suffering more than just a few weeks of the bitter cold and the sadness of the holiday season being over, January is the perfect time to escape to somewhere warm and tropical (or at least starting planning an escape!) That’s why  I thought this week would be the perfect time to switch gears and share photos and stories from the amazing girl’s trip I took with my sister Tiffany a couple months back in November, our gorgeous Western Caribbean cruise with Princess Cruises. One of the things I love about Caribbean cruises are that they offer up such a wide variety of timing options. Whether you want to go all in on a two-week vacay or simply want to get away for the weekend, Princess has Caribbean cruise options for every timeframe. Tiffany and I got to experience a 5 day Western Caribbean cruise with two stops. Today I’m going to share photos and stories from our first stop on our cruise: our day in beautiful Costa Maya.
