We've Come Back?

Here's the deal. I miss blogging. Not like now-a-days blogging. Like livejournal-esque, write about how you feel, share fun pictures type of blogging. Let's revisit those days. I'm going to try to post about my new adventures as a new mama, and I'm going to keep it honest. Like the good ol' days.

To get you up to speed:

We moved to Massachusetts and stayed for almost two years. Learned a lot. Had some ups and a few downs. "Enjoyed" a couple of snowy winters, were captivated by real fall, and then received news of a family member falling ill. Around the same time, my sister gave birth to my nephew in Phoenix and our pull back to AZ was just too strong. So back we went.

It wasn't long after we got settled back in Tucson that I found out I was PREGNANT! With a real life baby! It was/is the most exciting time of our lives.

Fast forward 9 months and our sweet daughter Everly Jane was born in February. She is a literal dream come true. If you follow me on Instagram, you know she's not the easiest baby. My little sour patch kid. I'm still learning how to navigate the newness of motherhood, but I feel like I'm really getting the hang of it.

OH, and we bought a house! Well, we're still in escrow and hoping to close in a couple of weeks.

There! You're all caught up. There are lots and lots of adventures sprinkled in between those major bullet points, of course. It felt really good typing all of that out! I kind of missed this. An internet "overshare" as my sister says. I don't even know if anyone (other than my mom) will read this, but that was what I loved about blogging back in the day :)

We've Moved!

We have officially moved. Both in real life and on the internet!

I'm excited to be working with a new layout and excited to learn the ins and outs of Wordpress.

November kicked my butt. Each month I feel like there's no humanly way I could be busier...and then it happens. Earlier this month Kyle left to begin his new job in Mass. To say we are missing him would be an understatement. Packing my entire house, putting it in storage, and moving myself into my parents house was such hard work! I couldn't have done it without the help of my family and friends. They were truly a godsend!

So now the count down begins! In 5 weeks we'll be on the road to our new adventure. I am excited and scared and nervous and everything all at once. I'll try to keep everyone updated, but I can't make any promises since life is going to be crazy until Spring basically haha.

Here are some pics I wanted to share from life lately. We are doing our best to get into the holiday spirit over here!
Isn't Harley just TOO much?!

So long, October

What a whirlwind of a month. October went by WAY too fast. It was full of work, yummy food, walking dead, and crazy puppies. My coworkers and I had a very Madmen inspired Halloween, which was a blast.

Probably one of the biggest things that happened this October was Kyle receiving a job offer...in Massachusetts. Talk about a life changing decision to be faced with. It was a painstaking task weighing the pros and cons of packing up our little family and moving across the country. With the support and advice from our families and friends, we are going for it. I still don't know if it is the right choice or the wrong choice, but we are ready for the adventure! If anyone has knowledge of the Berkshire County area, please give me the inside scoop!

Cheers, October! You were good to us, but I am excited for the holiday season :)

The Nott Shop

We have decided to embark on our first business venture together and open up an Instagram shop featuring vintage and modern treasures. Check us out at @TheNottShop if you'd like!

-M & K


Life can be pretty crazy sometimes. I feel like adulthood has me by the shoulders and is shaking me violently. Making big decisions is a new thing for me. Both K and I aren't a very decisive pair -- which I suppose doesn't get us very far on a day to day basis. Maybe it's because I like absolutes. I like knowing that something is right or wrong. In that situation it is always easy to make the right choice. Someone give me a scoop of ice cream and tell give me all the answers I need.

What I DO know is that I have a great best friend/husband/partner who cares about my happiness above anything else. That makes me feel like a really, really, lucky girl.

Adventure and growth are calling our names and it is terrifying.
