I’m done trying. Stay with me here. As dramatic as that sounds, it’s actually a supposed to be read as a statement without any sass. The same way you would read ‘I took the dog out before you came home’ is how that’s supposed to be read. But granted, you are missing some context. Let […]
There’s nothing quite like staying in a new place for a few nights. Whether you are staying in a hotel, with relatives, or in a strangers home there is a certain charm about the unfamiliar and a excitement about new perspectives.
Ever since our dating days, Jeff and I have wanted to travel. It’s been a constant in our dreams and goals to see things- like Niagara Falls or Rome and even smaller things like unknown beaches and long windy roads. Like most people, though, we aren’t exactly rolling in the dough, and when we became […]
I love home decor. For me, an ideal weekend activity is browsing unique shops and seeing gorgeous, custom pieces and envisioning them in my home. From hand-painted pallets to old dining room sets, I love it all. I want it all. If you’ve been around for a while, you know that it’s extremely out of character for […]

The past few weeks have been so much fun. We’ve been exploring gardening (just a little bit in our temporary residence), and now we’ve added a puppy to our small family.

Dear Joy, Today, mommy and daddy celebrate two years of marriage. We aren’t experts by any means, but by now we have a (tiny tiny) clue about this whole marriage thing. Right now, we are at the beach celebrating without you, but we haven’t forgotten about you. You are a crucial part of who we […]
Normally, I stay out of political and religious conversation. In my observation, people’s comments online rarely change opinions, and are nearly guaranteed to create strife and build walls between us rather then opening minds and producing new thought. However, this time I can’t keep quiet. And it may not be what you expect.
Last week, we were stuck in Appalachian Mountains during a spontaneous house-hunting adventure. Its been a long time since I’ve been so scared. However, there was a certain beauty, a certain comfort though the whole experience. In those hours, alone on a abandoned mountain road with night falling quickly, we experienced incredible weakness. After trying everything we […]
