I loved Valentine’s Day as a kid. My class would make little mailboxes and give out valentines. My sister and I spent hours slaving over our cute handmade hearts and glittery envelopes.

Want a little peek at what Dad’s Day usually looks like around here? We honestly don’t go over the top with presents and activities, since Nate works almost every holiday.

I was the first of my friends to have kids. I’ve been blessed to develop an incredibly large and supportive group of fellow moms since then, but I’ll never forget those isolating initial weeks. It was me, a baby, and absolutely NO CLUE what I was doing.

Nate’s mom and grandma (Oma and Nana) were the original members of my mom tribe, and I try to find ways to thank them every year around Mother’s Day.
