Friend Like You (Track 4)

When I was a young boy
I set out to the outdoors
Looked for things to catch my hazel eye
I could have done it all alone
And that at first was all I’d known
But it’s nice to have a friend like you Continue reading “Friend Like You (Track 4)”

Emergency (Track 3)

Whoa whoa, wakin’ up late again the alarm never ends
Anxiety has got a grip on me and what am I gonna wear?
I’m panicking, is anything clean?
Didn’t sleep, not a wink, now I’m strugglin’
She’ll want me to be home early to eat her chili… and take the baby! Continue reading “Emergency (Track 3)”

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.
    • 9/11/2014 – Alyssa and I took the first unexpected turn in either of our lives
    • 9/11/2018 – Alyssa and I chose an unexpected turn for our lives

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 analogy I use often when I speak about the importance of writing in my life. It irons and straightens out all the chaos in my mind, making me feel like a newly starched white button down.  Continue reading “Sabbaticals and Cereal”

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.

A Few(ish) of my Favorite Things

I think it’d be fun to share things from time to time that are making me happy. Whether it’s beauty products, household stuff, new toys for Olson or a recipe that Joel likes. I’ve found that some of my favorite content online includes things that other women like me are enjoying. It was fun for me to hunt down some of these things online and rediscover why I’m enjoying that particular product.  Continue reading “A Few(ish) of my Favorite Things”
