The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of travel and activities. For February break, we get a week off of school and Ryan and I decided to use that time as our "just us" trip for the year. And London became the location because of these bad boys. When Ryan texted me one day … Continue reading From London to Baku
I've been trying to take more ownership of my time lately, not just how I spend it, but more specifically how I talk about it. It's partially to remind myself how powerful words can be, but also to be a good example for the kids. It would be very easy for me to say that … Continue reading Where is the time going?
I went to Budapest last week for our girls' softball tournament. The weather was glorious most of the time, I mean look at that sky! This was the view from my hotel by the way, not too shabby.

I didn't really play with Legos much as a kid. To be fair to my family's toy buying efforts, … Continue reading Legos and road trip dreams
It has been awhile. Ok, it has been many whiles. I blame it on babies and basketball and winter/darkness/sad lamp season. Blah, blah, excuses, I know. To refresh the mind as well as the habit, I decided it was time for a clean slate. New site, new name, really get back to the guts of … Continue reading Welcome Back
