We have finally had some sunshine this past week and it’s been so refreshing to be able to get these kiddos outside! Last weekend, we went to a little local ice cream and candy shop for lunch and ice cream. And, of course, had to pick up some of our favorite candies while we were there. Ben slept the whole time, so it was quiet and relaxing, and…

finally treating my anxiety

I am not a mental health professional.

Jason & Ben, Easter 2017

We had such a fun-filled, crazy Easter weekend. Friday night we took a trip to the mall to see Mr. E. Bunny.

Weekend Update

November 21, 2016

We finally had a relaxing weekend over here. Well… as relaxing as a weekend can be without any real sleeping in or napping involved for me! We didn’t have to travel anywhere and we had minimal errands we had to run. Jason was out of town for work last week and didn’t land until late Friday night. So we decided to just spend lots of quality time together at…
