Thankful Challenge Day 18 | 2016

Today I’m thankful for so many things, mostly things I can’t talk about yet (but will post when I can!). But tonight David and I were treated to a wonderful seafood dinner at a restaurant we’d never been to with a family friend. We had a great time laughing and eating! We were so grateful […]

Thankful Challenge Day 1 | 2016

Three years ago, I tried a very unsuccessful attempt at the Thankful Challenge here on the blog. The intention was to post something I was thankful for daily, and sadly I only got three days in when the crickets started singing.

Fuzzy Hats & Ice Skating

Things are always an adventure when Kelly’s around. That’s one reason why I just love her! At the end of the summer she moved out of the area, states away, so when she was here for a quick Thanksgiving visit, Jackie and I couldn’t miss the opportunity to hang out with her. Kelly thought it […]

Hanson’s New Album – Anthem

Okay, I admit it – I’m aΒ huge nerd when it comes to Hanson. I remember being eleven years old and vowing never to like another band as much as I liked them then and little did I know how well I’d stick to that in the years to come. The guys have such positive energy […]

Moments You Can’t Buy

On a normal Sunday, I am not a morning person. You’ll find me still snuggled in bed until eleven o’clock or so. I’ve always been more of a night owl which means getting up early does not come natural to me. But after a few hours in the ER yesterday (bladder infection – ouch) and […]

Connecting The Old Fashioned Way

The first time I had to move and leave my best friends, I was nine. I made sure to get everyone’s addresses and promised to write. If we couldn’t see each other anymore, the next best thing was to be pen pals. I kept up this trend well into my early twenties, and obsessing over […]
