    Helloooo! We had a nice, little Wednesday over here yesterday. It started bright and early with breakfast with my favorite boy.

    Remember how I blogged about Rebecca Zamolo last week? She’s the woman who made a documentary about her experience with Ulcerative Colitis and adjusting to life with an ostomy bag.

    Good morning, friends! Yesterday morning started like a lot of them: Morning baby belly laughs, diaper change, breakfast for the little guy + iced coffee for me, and then breakfast for me while playing with Quinn and watching the news. Our mornings together are one of my most favorite parts of the day. A couple of […]
