• Wasn’t yesterday Thursday? It feels like the weekend takes forever to get here and flies by once it arrives. We spent the weekend at the cottage (again) as we usually do in the summer. So I thought today I would do a recap of how we spent this weekend.

    On Thursday we picked my

  • A few months ago I started to get these really intense headaches and the progressively got worse and became a daily thing to the point where I would wake up with this “headache” and go to sleep with it. I am not one who frequents the doctors office often especially for myself.

  • Yes, I’m pretty much obsessed and in love with gold. It is now my personal metal of choice in terms of jewelry (except for my wedding band and engagement ring) and I love it as an accent in my home decor. I have a decent collection of gold accessories throughout my home. I love that

    “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”… I guess technically that should say its the most wonderful season of the year. Summer is by far my favourite season and as thankful as I am to live in a country that fully

  • Hope you have all had a great weekend. The weather was perfect cottage weather and we spent lots of time loving the sun and water at the cottage. With the summer season here it is perfect patio weather. I absolutely love sitting out on our deck in the evening with a good drink in hand. It is

About Katie

Hey there, my name is Katie. I am married to my best friend who happens to be a major stud. After suffering through infertility I have been blessed to a mommy to 3 little babies. Most days you will find me shopping with a full stroller and Starbucks in my hand.

  • My kids love to eat tacos (burritos) and they love stuffies so these hot new toy #cutetitos are seriously the best of both worlds! The cutest little baby stuffies or regular size ones wrapped in a super soft blanket that perfectly resembles a tortilla shell these little #cutetitoes are sure to be a crowd pleaser this holiday season! Special thanks to #basicfuntoys for sending these to my little people you made their day!!
  • Change is inevitable so we need to learn to welcome the transformation that comes in change! Together hand in hand we can do this!
  • Grief is a funny thing it can hit you when you think that you are “fine” and yet it can exists in the middle of the most wonderful time of the year and when on the outside it looks like everything is exciting and fun! This past week has felt like an eternity I forget what he smells like I have longed for his snuggles and kisses yet I have spent moments praying for him and his new family, snuggling and kissing my own babies, crying and reminiscing with my kiddos all the things we miss and love about him! Time is one of those things that slows down when you wish it would speed up and flies bye when you wish it would freeze! Thank you for all the love, the sweet messages, dms, texts checking in and most of all the prayers they are carrying us through!
  • 570 days of loving you and it’s not enough! Goodbye seems too hard yet we release you with joy in our hearts and a smile on our faces because you’re getting your happy ending! You deserve all the love and to be surrounded by your siblings in your forever family but somehow it’s not making it any easier to let you go! It’s impossible to list all the things we will miss about you but know just because your gone you will never be forgotten and you are leaving with a piece of each of our hearts! You are a very loved little boy who makes missing you easy. With tear stain faces we say goodbye and await the next little one who needs some of our love and our hearts although they feel broken today are thankful that we got to love on you and be a piece of your story!
  • Ever feel like you can’t do what’s being asked of you? Ever feel inadequate for the task at hand? Ever felt like the journey your walking on is too hard? Tired of hearing “you can do this!” “you can do hard things!”? Me too!!! Truth is you (in and of yourself) can’t do hard things! Life is hard sometimes it’s scary, sometimes it’s lonely and sometimes you just wanna give up, throw the towel in - but don’t! I can’t do this on my own and neither can you - we weren’t meant to! God created us to do life together and He also promised to never leave us! I’ve known this my whole life and yet recently I’ve been reminded that truth - God doesn’t call the qualified He qualifies the called! I can’t do it - but He can so I keep moving forward one foot in front of the next ... step by step!
  • #tbt my sweet boy turned 6 and I’m in disbelief! I hope you will always be a mama’s boy, I hope people will always describe you as sweet, you feel things deep (like your mama) and yet this year you have become more adventurous and brave and I am so proud of you! I always knew you were special and this year I am starting to learn more about that - you still don’t like change but you continue to be best friends with you’re sisters and always a favorite of the girls in your life! I love you my sweet boy and I so thankful to be your mommy! #happybirthday #toinfinityandbeyond
  • The real mvp of our family! Life is hard right now - not bad just hard - and this guy holds it all together so well! Best dad, loving husband, hard working, loyal and kind! We love you @tspinksy #marriedup
