St Augustine Florida girls trip

A few weeks ago we got to get away on a girls trip! It was a much needed time away from all my normal responsibilities, for sure! I went with my Mom and two sister-in-laws to spend time away exploring and enjoying being together in the oldest city in America – St. Augustine. We learned […]

family quarantine memories

This last month for us has meant everyone being home all the time, as I’m sure it has for you, too. At first it definitely took some adjusting, we were just not used to being around each other 24/7 with no real breaks or outings. Finding a new normal took a couple weeks, but we […]

Abe and I have been married almost 8 years now, and its amazing as I sit here and reflect on just how much has changed in 8 years for us. When we got back from our honeymoon, we packed up our car and wedding gifts and drove across the country from Colorado to Virginia to […]

Last year I started up a series I’ve called my Heritage Series. It all started when my Dad sent me an old family photo and asked if I could clean up some of the scratches and signs of age from it, and it made me realize just how much I enjoy not only learning about […]

As Abe and I went out for a date night the other evening, I glanced at Abe and thought about whenever we go out all we seem to do is talk about is our kids (and maybe laugh a little at them too). But as I glanced over at him, my mind suddenly raced back […]
