Two Years Old!

Our sweet Madeline turns two years old tomorrow! The time has flown by just like everyone always says it will. She has turned into such a little person lately and Corey and I both said, when looking at this photo I snapped of her on Wednesday, that she all of a sudden looks like a little girl and not like a baby anymore. 

She is a combination of strong-willed and stubborn with sweet and affectionate. She is all over the place - running, skipping, and jumping and speaking in complete sentences all of a sudden. Counting to twelve and singing her ABC's. The time has definitely passed in the blink of an eye.

Coffee + Conversation

Happy Monday morning! If we were having coffee today, I would share that we had quite the busy weekend considering we intended to do absolutely nothing!

Madeline and I ordered her birthday cake and cupcakes on Friday afternoon. My mom always made mine so I felt really conflicted not doing it myself but I am hitting the easy button for her party this year, especially since this week is already packed so full.

Roasted Vegetable + Chicken Sausage Pasta

I shared this super easy, healthy meal earlier in the week on Instagram. As much as I love to cook, there are times that I am looking for something quick and simple to feed our family. I don't like to do highly-processed or frozen foods unless we are in a real hurry so this has quickly become a favorite dish and could easily be made in larger quantities for weekly meal prep.

To make this dish, I start by roasting my vegetables. Roasted vegetables are my absolute favorite! I just love the flavor. For this meal, I like to use onion, zucchini, mushrooms, and grape tomatoes but you can honestly use any vegetable that you like. I toss my veggies in a little olive oil and give them a good sprinkle of sea salt, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.
