We survived our first family road trip. Actually, to be honest, we more than survived! All I wanted was for it to be fun enough that we would want to do something like it again. It definitely had it's rough spots (windy roads, two puking incidents, 100+ degree weather, and standstill traffic) but overall we … Continue reading Our Road Trip to Utah
I am past the boot-wearing phase. Now that we've had some warmer days, I've broken out the sandals and I can't go back, so if you see me out and about on a rainy, 50 degree day wearing my flip flops you now know why. I just can't.

For me it was much easier picturing girl things because that's what my family mainly consists of and it's what I've been around. However, when it came to the baby's room, … Continue reading Olive’s Room
The other day I was in the shower and it hit me; I gave birth to a child. I did that. Not somebody I know, not someone I read about on a blog, ME! It was/is a weird and deeply rewarding feeling. Our Miss Olive joined our family on December 23rd at 10:56am. We had an … Continue reading Meet Olive James
At the beginning of the year, I had no idea what direction our life was going to go. The only thing we knew was going to happen was our European cruise but other than that, all was up in the air. My job was going to change, James's job was possibly changing, we were going … Continue reading God Is Funny
We're back!! In case you missed this post, James and I went on a 12 night cruise through the Mediterranean and made stops in Spain, France, Italy, Greece, and Turkey.
