Summer Visit {Photo-A-Day}

Ever since we moved to this home five years ago, we’ve used the two fences that flank our driveway to take a photo whilst she is here with us visiting. It’s a treat to go through old Facebook photos or external hard drives and see how much she has grown! Of course, there have been […]

A VERY Busy Spring Break!

A VERY Busy Spring Break!

What a week! It’s always great to spend a lot of time with Littles, but the amount of activities and events we crammed into our time together was record breaking! From setting up primary doctors, feeding ducks at the lake,  to dad’s birthday, it was incredible.

My husband was raised by his mother, her mother, and his maternal grandfather, Jim. They spent a lot of time together when he was a child, traveling to art shows, watch westerns, and help our with yard work and chores around their small town home. He refers to him as dad, and holds him responsible […]

It’s very rare (and very hard) for me to keep secrets from my husband. When a secret is tied into a surprise, it’s even tougher! Littles’ Mom and I are the calendar planning schedule makers. We work out all the details on her visits sometimes half a year in advance, since we both pretty much […]

This Easter was so incredibly busy. Between The Mr.’s schedule and my work load, seeing each other was few and far between. When we were asked if we wanted to spend Easter weekend with Littles, we were crushed that our schedules had finally taken over. Usually we jump at the chance for any extra time, […]

A week or so before Christmas was a busy, busy time for me. I was finishing everything for my next-to-last semester, still hadn’t started planning our wedding which was about two months away, and burning the midnight oil day in and day out. I usually check the mail before commuting to class and work, and […]

A Day at the Museum

A Day at the Museum

Jackson Pollock’s Portrait of a Dream (1953) This is her favorite painting. I make sure to take her and see it at least twice a year, so that it stays fresh in her mind, and she undoubtedly learns more about it. I asked her once, “What do you think Pollock is trying to tell us? What do […]
