Hey! I’m Courtney. I’m a 30 year old baker and mama of two. I live outside of Philly with my fiancé Jeremy (note: i’ll admit when people ask I usually say my partner.. that way we skip the questions and dirty looks!). We’ve been together for over 7 years, engaged for 5(?). Every time we talk about wedding plans life gets in the way. I imagine one day we will wander into City Hall and get that piece of paper, probably throw a party and drink a lot of beer.
We’ve moved a lot in the past couple of years. We started in Hershey where we met, moved to Chicago for two years and ended up in Philly. That’s where this story begins..
I was diagnosed with PCOS in my teenage years. In January of 2013 I finally saw a specialist who gave me a life of all of my treatment options but ultimately told me that starting a family was going to be very difficult. Obviously my ovaries proved him wrong because one month later I found out I was pregnant! Best. Surprise. Ever.
We welcomed Madeleine Amelia into the world on October 29th, 2013. She had(has) the cutest chubby legs and spunky personality right from the start.
Now fast forward 12 months.. Right around the time I was planning Madeleine’s first birthday we found out we were expecting again! Adding another baby also meant ditching our tiny rental in South Philly and replacing it would something a little more “family friendly” aka move to the burbs! In April we bought our first house in Havertown and have been loving it! Next up- minivan! Kidding.. kidding. (well maybe not)
Eloise Grey joined us on June 29, 2015. Exactly 20 months after her big sister! She is just the sweetest little girl who cries like a baby dinosaur.
This is the start of a whole new journey and I am really excited to share it with everyone. I will warn you now- things can be a shit show in my house. But I will make up for it with cute baby photos, yummy recipes and all of our home renovations/projects.
And as always you can e-mail me with any questions!
