Happy Friday! I’m sharing the highlights of my week… five to be exact! This week is dedicated to surviving the second week of parenthood. Nursing on demand and sleep deprivation mane some days better than others, but we’re doing the best we can! H54F is all about focusing on five little things that made me… Continue reading High Five for Friday!

The 2nd (and last) part of the Trick or Treat Costume Club cross stitch is done! I finished it up over the weekend in my last few days before baby arrived.
