Later this month we will be celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary. When we look back at the first five years as a married couple it has been filled with immeasurable joy and countless accomplishments. Welcoming two babies into our family, watching Ethan become an awesome big brother, home ownership, the advancement in our careers. Undoubtably, […]Read More Off to Haiti!
Last week I text Andrew midday with a simple message… “no plans next weekend, let’s get away”. And that was that. He took the wheel, booked us a hotel, and took a half day on Friday to pack up the car and ship the pup to the kennel. We adventured up to North Conway with […]Read More On a Whim
I love the summer. For all the obvious reasons but maybe mostly because it means Andrew mans the grill and whips up our dinner every single night. Total wife win of literally never having to turn on the stove for at least three and a half months. Perfection in my book. At our new home, […]Read More Out with the Old, In with the New
Right now my middle, Bishop, is taking a tubby in attempt to wash off the fun and grime from this Friday, his tongue still blue from the Ring Pop he devoured post-dinner. As I sit next to the tub while he plays I can hear the thunder off in the distance. I’m reminded that parenthood […]Read More Dining, Whining, and Unwinding
Today is your birthday. The first you’re celebrating in heaven. I imagine today is filled with a sunrise walk along the beach searching for sand dollars followed by warm Belgium waffles for breakfast. I imagine today is filled with taking time to look down on the great grandkids, your lips wide and the corners turned […]Read More Try to Be…
The best thing to me about a new season is always the beginning. Spring’s barely there buds. Dew on freshly cut Summer grass. That first Fall breeze in all its crispness. A light dusting of snow that marks the start of Winter. Call me strange but I love change. It keeps things exciting. It propels […]Read More The Beginning
Today marks the end of an era for us. As we sat around the dinner table and tucked our boys in for the night it hit me: we’ll never have a “first home” again. The excitement of all that lies ahead has overshadowed all we leave behind. Much like anything, that’s really the way it […]Read More Kendall Court
My husband and I always joke how we can’t wait for the weekend to roll in so that we can relax after the hectic week…and then reality hits. The weekend comes and we’re on the run from sun up til sun down carting our kids all over the place and checking errands and events off […]Read More In the Hallway
Father’s Day was last Sunday and I wanted to continue my blogs about being a father but naturally the day got behind me and I didn’t have time. Father’s Day is a unique holiday we get gifts, recognition, and appreciation for the contributions we give to our families everyday. For me I am very humble […]Read More Fatherhood Part 2. Learn from your past.
