The midpoint of summer has arrived and although I feel like we’ve done so much, I know there’s still more to squeeze in! Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen. Here is everything that’s gone on so far and the photographic proof… Continue reading Halfway through summer!
Hello! April has been a crazy up and down month in terms of weather and also schedule-wise. Does it ever slow down? Haha, no. A lot has been going on and it’s been tough to find time to post the fun stuff! That being said, here’s some of my favorite pics from my phone from… Continue reading Life Lately via iPhone
Hi, all! We are inching closer to springtime and that’s what continues to inspire me to get out of bed and join the world every day. That and lots of fun upcoming events (like Cece’s dance recital this weekend!). Here are a few other phone-captured things we have been up to lately. I’ve mentioned this… Continue reading Inching closer to spring!
Hi, all! Look how happy we are that we survived January! (You know, just to be in the middle of a big old blizzard now.) BUT we aren’t letting all this crazy weather get us down. It’s Thursday, but I feel like we are still coming off a great weekend. Joe did not have to… Continue reading Greetings from February!
What a holiday season it has been! I can’t believe tomorrow is Christmas (and I REALLY can’t believe my shopping is done and holiday cards are out.)

Ok, so we actually have a perfectly sized artificial tree at home.… Continue reading The 12 Dates of Christmas (Part II)

I think it would be seriously impressive if Joe and I were able to… Continue reading The 12 Dates of Christmas (Part I)
This week, Cece and I boarded a big yellow school bus with her teachers and classmates and had a delightful morning at Minnetonka Orchards. I took very similar photos with my phone as last year! Kind of fun to compare though. We did not pick apples, but we did go on a hayride, listened to… Continue reading Apple Orchard Field Trip 2015
The past few weeks have me convinced that September just might be my favorite month of the year. Even if it’s not my birthday month.To me, it felt like experiencing fall and summer at the same time. The beginning of the month had days so warm that the girls were still in bathing suits hitting… Continue reading September Highlights
Well, fancy seeing you here again! Through no fault of my own (just kidding), this has been a summer of massive technological failure and blogging got moved to the back burner for a good long time. Finally our computer is fully functional, my shattered iPhone has been replaced, and I’ve got my blogging pants on.… Continue reading Summer days drifting away…
As we’ve done the past six years, we applied our sunscreen and spent the Fourth of July in cabin style. We stayed only briefly, as we drove up Saturday morning and left after lunch on Sunday. So it was a whirlwind of food, cousin friends, fireworks, s’mores and sparklers. And hot dogs. So many hot… Continue reading Fourth of July, 2015
