It only took us two days…

48 Hours of Food (& Drink)

I had to wait until after lunch to write this post because I don’t know how to stare at this kind of food without wanting to jump back on a plane and fly to where it comes from. It was that good. Let me preface by saying I (used to/typically) stay away from all things MORE »

It Only Took Us Eight Years…

Before this weekend, Hal and I had never spent a weekend together in any kind of romantic setting. Ever. We’ve been meaning to plan a honeymoon but four kids later… yeah. And although we’ve spent anniversaries at local hotels, we were back home with the kids by late morning. There was never pool time. Nor MORE »

Adventures in Sleep Deprivation

Yesterday I told Fable “she looked beautiful in her sandwich” and by “sandwich” I meant “headband” because sandwiches and headbands are very easy to confuse, obviously.
