"and so it is..." grew from a simple desire to chronicle the stories that make up our lives. It documents the silly and the serious, the mundane and the monumental. Each day, my husband and I are reminded that this journey is what we make it and we want to make it good.

So, we choose happy.

It's pretty simple. We find things that bring us joy, then we do those things often. We realize that life doesn't have to be hard and we're learning to roll with the punches while keeping our eyes forward and our heads high.

The phrase "and so it is..." holds special meaning to me as it is a reminder that there is no end to our learning and that people are capable of great change.

We laugh a lot here, so if that's your thing, make yourself at home. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Hi Kelly,
    I am a student in Copenhagen that is doing a research paper about the American baby monitor market. I found your blog as one of the most popular in America, and thought it matched my segment. Would you please take 5 minutes of your time to answer my survey? It would be of great help to my project. Thanks:) And if it’s not too much to ask, would you please share this survey with others you know that have a baby/ is pregnant/ or planning to have? Thanks again!
