Summer Vacation

Summer Vacation has begun!!! For some that means listening to their children argue, complaining they are bored, spending the days counting the minutes until they go back to school. Honestly none of that happens at our house.. we usually have plenty of trips planned, fun activities to do outside, we love spending time with our daughter…

Child of God!

Emily Caroline was baptized on June 26, 2016 at the age of 8! This is something we fought with family members about when Em was born. My family is Roman Catholic along with Ryan’s and for an infant to not be baptized in the first few month of life was such a conflict. We sat…

We unplugged and just camped…

I spend an ungodly amount of my time on my phone, between texting, Facebook, Instgram, Snapchat and scrolling through crap, it was time to step back and take a break. So I unplugged this weekend….not just for me but also my husband. Ryan and I spent the weekend away camping at Lake Margrethe in Grayling,…

To My Husband On Father’s Day!

To be a father means much more than sperm donor! Ryan meant me when I was pregnant, things didn’t work out in my previous relationship and I was all sorts of confused, frustrated and down in the dumps of my life. I’ll save my sob story for another day. Ryan was the ONLY one who stood by…

Dear Daddy

  The case of Brock Turner, shouldn’t even be a case. This is a disgrace to our judicial system! 6-3 months.. is all you get… Shake My Head! You RAPED an unconscious woman, you dragged her behind the dumpster and just brutalized that poor girl.  You are responsible for your actions, not the alcohol or the…
