Back in full mom mode today! I was gone this past weekend at my best friend’s bachelorette party, which was so much fun.

Payton Jeanne: Birth Story

"For this child I have prayed, and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart." 1 Samuel 1:27 The last week of my pregnancy I was pretty grouchy... just being honest!
