TheOllieWorld_Ollie_Swaddle_Pink_Blue_Closed copy

As a veteran survivor of newborn sleep deprivation torture I knew what was coming when baby number three made his appearance. Any new parent can tell you that they will try anything that may make their little one settle down quicker, sleep longer, or even sleep at all.

I like to take way too many pictures and I most definitely am an over sharer on FB. I know I have a terrible memory and I don’t want to forget our favorite moments. While blogging and sharing photos on social media is great, I think it’s important to have hard copies of these precious memories too. I was thrilled to work with Costco on this post. I am familiar with the photo lab at Costco. I use the one-hour photo all the time.  Even {Read More}

Happy Earth Day!!! I love Earth Day! It’s such a great reminder of all the really easy things we can do throughout the year to help keep our little planet healthy and happy!
