Oh hey, it’s a week later already. Short work weeks don’t equate to long blog weeks, that’s for sure. Cause I haven’t even had a chance to TALK about our Memorial Day Weekend, let alone sit down and write about it. Saturday  // So those big plans I had to go to yoga, Crafty Mart at […]

It was only a matter of time before Moosh proclaimed that he wanted to go running. I merely suggested going running on Memorial Day, and next thing I knew he was all “Mommy! I wanna go running! I wanna go running!” Of course I didn’t anticipate him actually running. On days when I don’t take […]

life lately // a wrap up

May 15, 2015
birthday

Life has been crazy pants over the last month or so. But isn’t that kind of always the case when you’re working and raising a toddler and taking care of family responsibilities and training for races and trying to actually fit in some fun, too? Moosh started a new session of tumbling at the YMCA. […]

Today’s originally scheduled blog post has been put on hold until tomorrow. Because today is an incredibly special day. Today is Chad’s 40th birthday. And I have been able to spend 7 of those amazing years by his side. And I realize that I’ve only been a part of Chad’s life for a portion of […]

After last weeks drama that nearly put Moosh into the hospital for an overnight stay, we welcomed the weekend with open arms — and hesitation. Cause who knew WHEN this kid would have another episode, right? Well he definitely wasn’t feeling himself Friday. In fact, after a quick trip to Café O’Play where we pretty much […]

Friday  //  My BFF from high school, Carli, moved down to Akron over a year ago. As mucha s we SAY we’re going to get together now that we’re living down the street from each other, we just haven’t been able to as much as we’d like. ‘Cause life happens, y’all. But Friday night we […]

It’s hard to believe that we have been together for 6 and a half years. Honestly? Our three year wedding anniversary is JUST THAT. The anniversary of our vows. But we’ve been exclusively, wholeheartedly, together for six and a half years. At the last minute, we decided to call a friend to see if she […]
