    "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith.

have you seen haveheart

201.jpgGuys! It’s time to get all Halloweeny on your butts for a minute. Did you know that the great, spooky holiday is only 26 days away?! I only know that because I just looked it up, but still! Have you bought your candy yet? Do you know what your costume will look like? Have you started any of your DIYs? If your answers are no, no, and no, then I can help you rectify one of those problems right now with my latest craft for HaveHeart Magazine. Are you ready?

This is what you’ll need to do in order to start a little thing that I like to call the “Classic Pumpkin Project,” or “Readable Pumpkin DIY,” if you will.

1. Get an old book, preferably a scary one.

2. Track down some scissors, a glue gun, wire, and pencil.

3. Click this link here.
