We love November! It starts with our dear son’s bday. And this year he turned 2! We reminisced on 11/5/17 when he came into this world and how our world changed in so many amazing ways. We love being this adventurous, rambunctious, snuggly, loving, and brave little man’s parents. We started the day with FaceTiming […]

October for the soul.

October for the soul.

I love Octobers. And this October was absolutely love-filled and lovely! We started off by welcoming Ben and Chris back from their amazing moose hunt. After packaging, boiling, and grinding the meat, we set out into the hills for a little break and some time together. We enjoyed a rainy day on the hillside trails and […]

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. Melody Beattie On our first day off together in February, we hiked around the hillside and found the most beautiful sights. If you aren’t hiking around the hillside then you are missing out. Little Sammy loved it, and we did […]
