A Weekend Getaway

I have been terrible about posting here the last few months, but I want to get back into it, for myself if nothing else! I love having this blog to look back on and see what we did and share with family and friends. That said, we've been pretty busy lately and the holidays are always full of fun, so I plan to get back on here ...

Introducing…

...Teddy Ruxbin Waltz! For Dan's birthday a couple of weeks ago, I told him we were headed to a pumpkin patch recommended by a friend - the perfect ruse to pick up our new puppy!

Welcome Brunch & Wine Tasting

100 Happy Days Update

I am generally a very positive person, but it is a good reminder that pops in my head and makes me snap out of it when I'm feeling overwhelmed at work or negative about the weather ...

On Love and Valentine’s Day

Ever since we got married, Dan has made me lunch and includes paper-towel art. It's so cute and heartfelt and brings a little excitement and joy to each day! Sometimes they're funny, sometimes sentimental, sometimes completely random, but I am always excited to see what's in store when I open my lunchbox. It's a small gesture ...
