Taking Stock / 1

January 12, 2017


We’ve been having the most amazing, spring-like weather and it has me feeling so excited for spring. I know, I know… I should be excited about winter (present moment, right?) and I’m getting there. These photos are definitely helping. The snow was beautiful well it lasted, but I can’t say that I’m sad that it melted away without weeks of salt and ice.

Milo’s First Trip to Europe

January 8, 2017


Thank you so much for all the kind encouragement on my last post. Navigating motherhood has been a challenging (yet rewarding) experience and it feels so good to share how I’m really doing. I’d love to continue the conversation since I think there’s so much good to be shared between us. We’re all just doing our best!

This past November, we took Milo on his first international trip. We wanted to visit my grandfather in France so they could meet and we decided to add Portugal to our itinerary. We had never been and it had long been on my wishlist of places to visit.

Remember me?

January 5, 2017


Wow. Has it really been six months since I’ve last posted? It’s crazy how time moves with a newborn baby.

Introducing Milo Bloom Kurtzman

I can’t believe this little baby is mine. I can’t believe he’s been with us for 13 days. What an incredible, magical, emotional roller-coaster of a time that I’d change in no way.

Our Spontaneous Babymoon

May 23, 2016


Matt and I have birthdays that are 6 months apart, and so instead of giving each other gifts, we go on vacation. For Matt’s 30th birthday, we ventured to Southeast Asia for two weeks of adventure. And for my 30th birthday, we went to Turkey. It’s been an awesome few years of seeing new places.

I was so excited to find out that I was pregnant in October, and although I didn’t feel the need to do a traditional babymoon, I did recognize that we’d probably want to plan a trip around Matt’s birthday in February. Knowing that our lives were going to change in a big way this summer, I wanted to go somewhere far away, visiting a place that we might not get to for awhile with a baby in tow.
