Honestly: Parenting at 2am

Arguably, this isn’t the ideal time to write a blog post.

But, parenting is much like being a volunteer firefighter. You often don’t get the call, but when you do… you gotta put out the fire. Continue reading “Honestly: Parenting at 2am”

Our New Life in the North

We are super open people. I can’t deny that we would confess to you pretty much any old thing you wanted to know about us. I believe it’s a combination of our desire to connect with people and the lack of skeletons in our closets. We are about as transparent as they come. Continue reading “Our New Life in the North”

What 9/11 Means to Me | by Joel

September 11th is a day that will live in infamy forever.

  • For the U.S.A, it is one thing (9/11/2001)
  • For me, it has become two different things.

Sabbaticals and Cereal

I’ve known for the last couple of weeks that I need to be writing more. About what–I am not sure. But I long to iron out the wrinkled up thoughts in my head.

An Ode to Domestic Balance

I just purchased dark chocolate because it’s healthier than milk chocolate, yet there is a huge jar of candy Olson got from Easter and it will most assuredly give him a cavity. But I can’t toss it cause that’s just wasteful.

Wine and Lays

I lead a busy life.

I’m not proud of that, but it has taught me things.

When I want to do something, it usually happens after work. Sometimes after dinner.¬†Watching the Winter Olympics was a consistent highlight of our nights for a couple weeks. It was/is easy to sit on the couch and let the night fade away. But, the other night I wanted something different. So, while my sweet love made a delicious meal, the boys went for a run.

The Inn on Mill Creek

This was the first place Joel and I ever ventured to as husband and wife. It’s 30 minutes from Asheville and just East of Black Mountain and Old Fort, North Carolina. A perfect getaway, still close enough to civilization to enjoy a nice dinner out. Joel took me here for the first leg of our honeymoon in 2013. And he took me there again for our anniversary last year.¬† Continue reading “The Inn on Mill Creek”
