Miles’s Birth Story

April 26, 2016 duchessoffork 1

I failed to post one single time about my pregnancy with Miles. I really haven’t been blogging much since last summer (we found out I was pregnant on August 13th, after trying and praying all year for a third). No announcement post, no weekly “bumpdates.” Ev …

Mac, Just like that, you are three. I cannot believe three whole years have come and gone since you entered our lives and changed our hearts forever. I could never dream the love I could hold in my heart for a little boy. You are something special, Mac Man, and I’m so g …

My Big Come Back

January 25, 2016 duchessoffork 1

I’m sure you’ve noticed that it’s basically been radio silence here on Duchess of Fork since last summer. Since that time, life has been a just little busy. We found out we were expecting our third baby (a sweet boy!), travelled to Paris, travelled to Disney …

Surviving the Beach with Young Kids

May 5, 2014 duchessoffork 6

Ahhh….there is nothing quite like a day at the beach. The sun is brightly shining, the crystal clear waters are glistening, and the sugar white sand is softly squeaking beneath your toes. Once you have kids, your lazy and relaxing days at the beach are over as you know …
