    "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.

make this : beard oil

Beard Oil DIYThe rise of the bearded male has certainly grown exponentially in the last few years. Never have they been so trendy since the famous hippie era. I personally love the look of them, whether it is simply a bit of scruff or a full on beard. I think that it adds character, much like one’s own hairstyle. 

Beard Oil DIY - 9My husband has had some sort of a beard in the five years that we have been married. However, he really began growing it out over the last two years. This has resulted in more upkeep and experimentation with different grooming products, namely beard oil.

While the effects of beard oil are apparently tremendously beneficial, the cost for one little bottle can be outrageously high. After googling simple recipes for the oil, I decided to make a batch for Geoffrey. It was incredibly easy to do so, and something that I suggest for all beard enthusiasts. Additionally, they would also make a great present year round!

    Hey Em,

    Great post and I agree with the underlying premise: the beard has definitely made a comeback.

    Well done with the manly DIY post and rustic-themed pictures of Geoff’s glorious beard. He has the look of a Welder.

  2. My hubby also uses beard oil. I might have to try this. I personally love beards on men as long as they are groomed!
