Friday Favorites [7.29.22]

Happy Friday!! And last weekday of July!! Last year, I made a goal to blog every weekday in July, and it was quite the challenge, but I loved it. I blogged about some of my favorite posts here. But then I started school in August and blogging quickly slipped to the bottom of my days...

I missed it though and when July rolled around this year, I knew I wanted to make the same goal. It has been the biggest joy to hop on here every morning, and it has meant the world that so many of you have followed along with our little family. Having a little blog that's almost a little scrapbook for our family has been a dream of mine for a long time, so it's so fun to feel like I'm living it out. 

As August rolls around, I'll still be here most mornings! I'm looking forward to all that is to come and all the fun to share. ☺️ Thanks for journeying along with us day-to-day! 

For today, I have a few Friday Favorites for you. I'm packing us all up today for Jane's first plane ride tomorrow, so it's short and simple, but I hope you enjoy and find some simple pleasures in your Friday too!!

Day in the Life [7.20.22]

Happy Monday!! And Christmas in July! πŸŽ„ I hope you all had a great weekend!! We are still in Louisville just soaking up the sunshine and sweet time with family. Today I have one of my favorite posts to read on other people's blogs...I just could read forever about how people spend their days. It's so fun to get a peek into other people's lives and homes, so I hope it's fun reading about a little summer day in our home with a sweet three month old little girl.

I tried to document as I went, and I also tried to pick a pretty average ole day. Somedays, Pierce and I don't work out and just enjoy a slower morning, somedays aren't filled with errands but instead walks around our neighborhood or park, some nights we go out to eat, etc, but for the most part, this is pretty much an average little day in our life. Hope you enjoy looking at some of our pictures and walking through a day with us!

Friday Favorites [7.22.22]

Happy Friday!!! I truly cannot believe next week is the last week of has flown by. We are headed up to Louisville this weekend to celebrate my mom's birthday a week early, so that means lots of sweet hands holding Jane, many fresh garden salads and afternoons by the pool...we love it up there so much. But today I have a few of our Friday Favorites today...including a way to save on gas!! πŸ‘ Hope you enjoy!!

Photo Cubes

Happy Thursday!! Today I thought it would be fun to talk about these sweet Photo Cubes that are so fun to make!! I found the idea right before Father's Day and decided to give it a try to give to Pierce for his desk at work. He had mentioned wanting a few pictures of us and Jane, but he is so creative and loves things that are unique, so I thought these would be perfect!

Featured Photos #1

Happy Wednesday!! I thought it would be fun to start a new series on here to take a look back on moments and memories that happened before I started my blog. My phone always picks so many random and fun pictures to show up on my Featured Photos, so I thought every so often I could pick a few that pop up and just share a little snapshot and story behind them. ☺️ Hope it's a fun little walk down memory lane with the Riddick Family!!

Our Dog Kashi

Well, I debated about writing a little post about our dog Kashi, but I thought it would be sweet to have this post to look back on later. Our sweet family dog that we got my junior year of high school passed away a few weeks ago. "Home" in Louisville isn't quite the same without her...

Pictures to Treasure

Good morning!! Happy Thursday!! I thought today I could share some sweet pictures that we had taken when Jane was about three weeks old. When she was about a week old, I realized she was growing and changing SO fast, and I knew I really wanted someone to document our new little family and this sweet season when she was small. I reached out to a few photographers in town, including our sweet wedding photographer in Dallas, but everyone was already booked. Then the amazing Brigette Billups emailed me back and came a few days later. We just loved having her in our home and will always treasure these sweet pictures. Hope you grab a cup of coffee and enjoy a few pictures of sweet Jane Arbel!!

Let's Look...How We Stay Healthy

Well, today's post is another fun and different challenge for me... Last year, when I decided to blog every weekday in July, I knew I wanted to challenge myself to do the blog link-ups that I love to follow... I blogged about Bathroom Organization, which let's just say isn't my biggest strength πŸ˜‚ But today it's about how we stay healthy, which is definitely important to both me and Pierce.

Our Fourth of July πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Fourth of July is slowly inching up as one of my favorite holidays... I love that it's in the middle of summer, it's usually filled with sunshine and blue skies, family and time outside. Last year we spent the weekend in Louisville with my family, and this year, we decided to head back up to the pool for all the fun that comes with it. 

This year looked a little different with a 3 month old in the mix, but we had just as much fun celebrating this fun holiday.
