in june 2010, our lives got turned upside down in the best possible way: the birth of our awesome kiddo, john. in october 2013, brother charlie charged into our life to change the status quo again. and june 2016 brought us brother ben to round out our trio.

i'm proud to have "mom" at the top of the list of titles on my resume, but i'm also still a hard-working professional. how does a working mom juggle work and family? ride along with me and see if i can figure it out!

the dress

the dress
yesterday, i finally found the dress i've been looking for for formal night on the cruise. i've hunted and hunted and finally found a post-prom sale that yielded the pretty blue ombre gown in the pic above. (of course my picture can't do it justice, and it actually looks even better on me than on the hanger - when does THAT happen?!?)

so when i got home last night, i decided to try it on to show my husband. john ran into the bedroom with me while i was changing, and as soon as i pulled the dress on - before i had even zipped it - john looked at me with wide eyes and a huge smile. "mommy!" he said. "show daddy mommy dress. show daddy!"

i have never in my life felt more beautiful. he had sparkles in his eyes and he just wanted me to show his daddy. what an honor it is to be the most beautiful woman in my little bug's eyes.
