The Backyard Work House

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Friends! I’m FINALLY getting around to posting photos and a little “tour” of our backyard work house. Before I dive in, a little background for you on why we decided to build a work house and what it’s being used for! A year ago when COVID began, Joe started working from home. Joe has worked from home in the past and HATED it (he likes separation, structure, etc.) so I got to thinking about how to create that same sense … Read More

Happy Birthday, Ainsley! Reflections on six years of motherhood…

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

As of last week, I’ve been a mom for SIX years. What? It’s definitely one of those “longest shortest time” moments where I feel like I’ve been a mom forever and yet it seems to have vanished in the blink of an eye. When I sat down to write a few thoughts about the last six years of motherhood I got a little stuck. How do you put something so all-consuming into words? A nearly impossible task, for sure, but … Read More

It’s Heart Month!

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Two years ago, February was a month dedicated to candy and Valentine’s Day and Ainsley’s birthday, but now it’s even more special to our family. February is heart month and February 7-14 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. For some very obvious reasons it’s a month close to my heart and a topic I’m super passionate about. What I didn’t know before having a heart baby was that 1 in every 100 kiddos is born with a heart defect. Not … Read More

Evidently, in our case, the answer is to buy another project house. (Insert nervous laugh…) The WHYNeither Joe nor I grew up with family who … Read More
