Might As Well Jump

For those of you reading on a mobile device, we’re working on the glitch where you can’t see the daily photo! Thanks for your patience! When Annabel was learning how to swim, one of the “requirements” to move up a level was to jump off of a diving board. I don’t really know why, maybe…

I hope you all are having a lovely weekend! We went to a “water adventure” park on Friday with my friend and her kiddos and had a blast. Of course, no one had more fun than James, who wouldn’t think twice about leaving us to live in a water park. Between the giant lazy river…

Happy National Ice Cream Day! We will definitely be taking advantage of one of the places offering a deal on ice cream today. It would be rude not to, right? Ice cream should be celebrated. Plus it’s hot as heck outside, so anything that will keep me cool is fantastic in my book. Annie had…

Annabel’s Violet

Annabel has been asking me if she can dye the ends of her hair for over a year, ever since she saw some YouTube video about how “easy” it is to dye your own hair. I’ve resisted allowing it, partly because I thought she was too young, and partly because I thought it might open…

Desert Tripping

We are wrapping up a MUCH needed vacation to Palm Desert to visit my aunt and uncle. Mike and I have both been working like crazy, so our annual Fourth of July trip to the desert was perfectly timed. I stayed off the grid (as much as possible, because I still had deadlines), and ate,…

I had a great birthday, thank you to everyone for the well-wishes! I got really nice gifts from Mike and the kids, including a shirt from Annabel that she picked out because, as she told Mike, it “looked confident.” AND my parents brought over birthday pie! I am a firm believer in birthday pie, and…
