Friday I’m in Love

Happy Friday! I’ve two weeks of love to catch up on as we round out the month of February, so let’s get started.

o n e

We had such a fun Valentine’s Day! I woke up to some beautiful flowers too. The kids passed out their valentines at school and came home with lots of goodies.

I’ve had some great girl time in the past two weeks. I went out for Galentine’s Day to Cooper’s Hawk with some running friendsย for a much needed wine night.ย This week, Mary Beth was in town so we spent the day strolling Park Ave. and catching up. It was perfect.

We are all caught up on This Is Us after watching three episodes this week. Can we talk about what an emotional roller coaster that show is!? If you haven’t caught up yet, grab the tissues and watch!

As I was scrolling through Instagram on Wednesday, I came across this photoย from a photographer in Jacksonville and was in awe. Today, the beautiful photos were on Good Morning America and ABC News. What an unbelievable story and unbelievable photos of the gorgeous baby boy.

when we got the bikes out, i asked kenley if she wanted to take her training wheels off. she ran inside to ask greg to take them off. after two tries, she was on her way! she did such a great job!

Christmas {2016}

Merry Christmas! We have been having so much fun this week and I have so many pictures to share of all of our adventures with all of our visitors.

Before Christmas, we had our friends in town for a few days to play as they were on their way down to south Florida. I had to work until Friday, but Greg and the kids had a great time. They went to the Science Center, the park, and we made s’mores on the front porch after dinner one night.

As the Mangos were leaving, my parents, Michael and Rachel were arriving for Christmas. I ran 10 miles with the girls on Christmas Eve before we were off to church in the afternoon for our candlelight service. My favorite.

After putting milk, cookies, and carrots out for Santa and his reindeer, we woke up on Christmas morning to see what Santa brought and exchange gifts. We spent the rest of the day playing with our new toys, inside and outside.

We headed to Light Up UCF on Tuesday to ice skate! It was the first time ice skating for the kids and the first time in a very long time ice skating for the rest of us. Crosby didn’t like it, but Kenley loved it! We went back out a second time and it was hard to pull her away.
