Hi there! Forgive me as I have been holed up with my son for a month now…it’s taken some time to catch our breath and welcome back the outside world! Maternity leave has been a whirlwind of fantastic visitors, late night feedings and a lot of cuddling…and I mean A LOT. Becoming a mother is one of the biggest transitions I think a woman can face and while we are starting to get the hang of things, please know that I may be a little dodgy with the posts for the remainder of my time off. Three more weeks of spending time with our lovebug is too precious to pass up with things like blogging and laundry. But I have missed contributing to my little corner of the world and have been jotting posts down like crazy that I can’t wait to share. Springtime is coming to Minneapolis (while slower than most cities) and with that comes a total recharge and fun new adventures to be had! Till then, please let me share some gorgeous pictures taken by one of my best of friends, Carmen Aultman. A special thanks for capturing Oliver in all his small glory.
