about me

hi! I am Lizzie -- the mama behind these darling little monsters! I'm married to my hometown guy and we're insanely blessed with our two girls, Matilda & Betsy. We are a military family, originally from Philadelphia, currently living in Virginia Beach and enjoying it to the fullest! I'm hoping this blog will help me connect with others out there who are trying to survive this adventure called motherhood. Welcome aboard! 

a little more about us..

Both my husband and I were born and raised in Philadelphia and met while I was still in high school. We started dating in 2004, which just feels like a life time ago! Tom decided to join the Navy in 2011 and I was more than supportive, I was so excited!! He proposed in the middle of Rittenhouse Square in Center City Philly a month before leaving for boot camp. Sending him daily love letters made me feel like we went back in time, it was pretty damn romantic! I left my job as an assistant teacher in a toddler Montessori classroom to follow him wherever the Navy would lead us. 

We got married October 5, 2013 in Salem, MA with all of our closest family and friends there to celebrate. It was hands down the best wedding ever, I may be biased, but seriously-- BEST WEDDING EVER!!

On August 5, 2014 we welcomed our first baby, Matilda Elizabeth, into our family. Being a mom was something I wanted for as long as I can remember and she was just so perfect! Tom's career in the Navy provided for me to stay home with my sweet little monster and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world that my husband has made that possible. I truly feel that this is what I was born to do!

Shortly after Matilda was born we already started thinking about adding to our little family. We knew we wanted them close in age and with a deployment coming up we figured we'd just go for it!! So on my 29th birthday, when Matilda was just six months old, we found out we were growing!

Betsy Brown made us a family of four on October 20, 2015! She was the prettiest baby I had ever seen and the absolute easiest labor I had ever heard of! Just two pushes and there she was, changing our world and doubling the size of our hearts. Everything about her was just perfect!

Who knows what is in store for our family-- moving, careers, babies, traveling.. I just know we're pretty down to earth and easy going, and just want to give ourselves and our girls the best lives we can. So please, follow along and thanks for reading! Cheers to my favorite stage of life thus far!
