It’s that time of year when, in the very, very dark recesses of my mind, I start wondering what in the world I’m going to put on the Christmas card. I know, it’s early September and we still haven’t even celebrated Columbus Day (Native American Day for you South Dakotans), but you don’t want to […]
A million years ago, there was a newborn in this house. And life was good. Then, they grew up. Thankfully, for people like me who love the smell and the squishy goodness of babies but love even more to sleep and eat a hot meal without interruption, there are awesome moms out there who are […]
Anyone who has spent more than 46 seconds with my husband knows that he has a quirky, unstoppable, inimitable, sometimes unfollowable, and other times pinpoint accurate way of looking at the world. Time spent talking to him was described to me once as, “A mental roller coaster. Like Space Mountain in the dark.” I was […]
We’ve had the privilege of getting to know this young lady over the past year or so and while she probably gets tired of hearing it, she really is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Good luck in your senior year, E! We can’t wait to watch you set the […]

Words can’t describe how perfect this day was. I have literally thousands of pictures yet to go through but I had to stop editing and share some of my favorites! Ahh…now back to editing! Love you guys!

The men painting the house down the road alerted each other in Spanish to Charlie’s approach. They turned and smiled at her. She stopped to observe […]
There’s a special place in heaven for moms of boys. And it’s probably right down the hall from the washing machine. Sweet little S Family! Thanks for letting me hang out with you the other day!
I was told this little girl doesn’t like to smile for the camera. Any time I hear this, I make it my goal to prove them wrong. Note to self: tripping over my own feet works.
I want to be two again. I want to wear ponytails and have people say I’m cute And spend the day looking for butterflies.
