From Instagram: I opened my office door and he came scooting in as fast as he could. I'm thankful to say that after last week's stomach flu-pocalypse, we returned to our regularly scheduled program this week, and it was a good week! I'll share more about our new schedule soon (because we've flipped everything on…

From Instagram: Synchronized stomach flu. If I believed in that sort of thing, I might just say I jinxed myself by celebrating the success of our new schedule in last week's post. :) On Monday night, after another great day, our kids went down with the stomach flu: one, two, three, four, five of them all…

Smashing my January Reading Goals

We're only two weeks into January, but I'm so happy with the progress I've made on this year's reading goals. And this is why I love the new year: nothing in particular has changed from last month to this one except I reexamined my reading habits and goals, which has motivated me to pick up…

From Instagram: Such a beautiful 70-degree {January?} day!  These week felt like the perfect start to a new year—a new schedule that is working wonderfully, home cooked meals after a year of eating whatever was easiest, 3 books finished before the weekend. Of course, I'm not naive enough to think that one good week means…

From Instagram: Swollen but happy! <3 We first noticed the bump on Lucas' eyebrow when he was 2 weeks old and everyone felt pretty confident that it was a dermoid cyst that would need to be removed by a plastic surgeon in a fairly-simple-but-still-terrifying surgery. I've pretty much dreaded that surgery for the past year, but this…

Setting Unreasonable Reading Goals

I've been setting reading goals for 4 or 5 years now, and only once have I ever hit one. That was the year that I finally lowered my reading goal to 75 books (from 100), and even then I still didn't complete my Modern Mrs. Darcy Reading Challenge. It's probably no surprise that I didn't hit…

From Instagram: That's the angel from the top of our 12' tree. And the "angel" that somehow got her down. This past week we had a company Christmas party at Ultimate Bundles, and I was reminded of just how lucky I am to work from home with such an amazing group of people. With two…

From Instagram: Next up: string art ornaments. Have you ever had one of those weeks that started out so beautifully that it felt like everything was right in the world...and then came crashing down so hard that you just wanted to throw your hands in the air? There haven't been any big crises or anything...just…

From Instagram: Seventeen years, seven months and eleven days ago, we had our first date at a Rainforest Cafe, and we never miss a chance to go back! This weekend we're in Knoxville, Tennessee with Sean's dad and sister, staying in a beautiful log cabin on a lake, which seems like a good way to…

From (my mom's) Instagram: There are so many stories in this image. So many things to be thankful for. So much love. More laughter than you can imagine. Happy Thanksgiving! It was a quiet week here on the blog while we spent time with family and friends here in Southern Florida. One of the best parts…
