because one day you won't, part 4 and an announcement

Believe it or not, the winter months have been good to us. Life has slowed down and we are loving our rhythm as a family of five. Even as we've been stuck inside for months (and months and months), I have been looking for moments covered in childhood and baby rolls. There has been no shortage of either.

If you are new to my Because One Day You Won't posts, you can check them out here:

Because One Day You Won't Part 1
Because One Day You Won't Part 2
Because One Day You Won't Part 3


Because one day you won't all fit together on one sled.



Because one day you won't protect your breakfast from the rain.




Because one day you won't have a Minnie Mouse raincoat, Minnie Mouse umbrella, and Minnie Mouse backpack. And because one day you won't tuck you pants into your socks "so everyone can see the polka dots."



 Because one day you won't let me kiss those cheeks five hundred times a day.




Because one day you won't put on your football player costume and sneak into your sister's room to read her Berenstain Bear books.




Because one day you won't have so many arms rolls.




Because one day you won't fit in the toy baby stroller.



Because one day you won't beg us to sleep together in the same bed.



Because one day you won't decorate the "Christmas tree" outside with random things found around the house.


And because one day you won't bring me this snack when I'm having a rough day.


Yes, that is a mixture of fruit snacks, chocolate chips. Hershey's, and some Now & Laters. With milk.



So today I will notice these moments.

And for the announcement...
No, I'm not pregnant. 

44 & Oxford is getting a makeover, and with that makeover comes a new name. That's right folks, it's the end of the road for my beloved 44 & Oxford. This place has been a beautiful writing space for me for the past three and a half years, but I've been working hard to create a new beautiful corner of the internet to call home. My new website will be live later this month!

If you already subscribe to 44 & Oxford, your email address will be transferred over, and you will continue to receive essays to your inbox. If you stumbled upon here via my social media channels, you can either subscribed over in the sidebar or keep checking Facebook and Instagram for the launch of my new site.

It is a honor and great joy for me to share my writing. Thanks for reading.

  1. This post made me tear up. Celebrated my son's first birthday today and am especially sentimental about my kids...seems like not so long ago it was my daughter's first birthday...
