Baby Blankets

We received two wonderful gifts of handmade blankets for the baby recently. The first was knit by my Grandma White, a beautiful white baby afghan, before her carpal tunnel surgery, none the less! And ... View Post about Baby Blankets

Cherries

Last week we went cherry picking and managed to find a few good ones. A lot of the cherries this year are pretty bland and watery, and many of them had split due to all of the rain we've been having. ... View Post about Cherries

Weigh In

Friday was my seventh month appointment. It kind of fun going and seeing how much I weigh now since we don't have a scale at home. 146 lbs! Four more than last month and my belly is 29 cm. The doctor ... View Post about Weigh In

Seventh Month

June 1st marked the beginning of our seventh month - with an expanding belly to prove it. I traveled to Dallas to visit my mom for a long Memorial Day weekend, where we had a mini baby-shower BBQ with ... View Post about Seventh Month

The Long Post

So Chris and I have been slackers this month, that's for sure. But here's a random post to (hopefully) make up for it. First up, baby news: I had my six month appointment Thursday morning. ... View Post about The Long Post

Ready For Spring

It's almost safe planting time in the northeast and Chris and I spent the weekend getting ready. I have pretty big plans this spring, since I feel like this is a house that we'll stay in for a few ... View Post about Ready For Spring

Big Week

It's been a big week for the Hinds family. Yup, we're a family again...meet Pip. Though he's no Puck, Chris and I were happy to adopt a little red dog this week from Puerto Rico, of all places. ... View Post about Big Week

  • Tree decorating! Vivi and I are supervising from the couch.
  • Feeling a little nostalgic today about our drive along the Pacific Coast Highway last summer. This afternoon we sold our trailer and watched it drive away from us ready to build memories for a new family. I'm super excited for our next chapter, but also a little sad to say goodbye to the trailer that was out fulltime home for almost a year + brought us on so many adventures...16 state capitals, countless state and national parks, and even a TV episode!

  • It may be December, but we're finally getting some fall-ish weather in Texas, which means taking the opportunity to nap outside and soak up some vitamin D. Happy 3 weeks, Vivienne.
  • We had Vivienne's two week visit at the midwife's office today and put her footprints up on the wall. I love that they do this...all around their lobby, hallways and exam rooms are footprints, stats, and names of all the babies they've delivered.  It's so fun to see all the babies footprints and know we're part of this little tribe now. 
This was our third home birth and since all our babies have been born in different states, our third midwifery practice that we've worked with. Every time I am always so happy with the quality of care that they provide and how they truly make me feel like they know me and care deeply about me and my family. It's such a different experience from my prenatal and birth care experience with our eldest daughter (with midwives at an OB practice and hospital delivery). If you are having a healthy normal pregnancy, I can't advocate more for considering home birth. ♥️
  • It's #smallbusinesssaturday and while I know no one is buying websites or marketing services today, I thought it seemed fitting to share a little "before and after" in celebration of how far we've come since Chris and I started @roadwarriorwp. This first picture is from 2015 when we were gearing up to rebrand my freelance business as Road Warrior Creative and we were in the midst of saving like mad and building the business to a point where Chris could quit his day job. At that point we were only dreaming of freedom to travel. The second is a drone photo of our trailer - a visual reminder that we have achieved our dreams of being able to work from anywhere and travel + working without sacrificing spending lots of time with our daughters.

Earlier this fall, I was interviewed on the @rventrepreneur podcast about my journey growing my business from a freelancer to an agency with 6 team members in addition to me and Chris. I'm so proud of how far we've come and all we've been able to achieve in 4 short years. The link to the podcast is in my bio if you want to give it a listen. 
If you're on the entrepreneurial journey yourself and have any questions for me, leave them in a comment. I'm all about helping other entrepreneurs and small business owners take the leap to achieve the business and life goals they are dreaming of. And would be happy to answer any questions that you might have.
