Today is our 14th wedding anniversary, not really a "monumental" anniversary but any anniversary you can celebrate is monumental and I think now more than ever, we realize this. We have been together almost 18 years this October but dating is always the easier part of the relationship, so those years almost don't count, do… Continue reading 14
I recently talked about sharing what is in the notes app I keep on my phone and some of you had no idea that you could either keep notes in your phone or that there was even an app to do such a thing, to begin with. This shocked me because I am always late… Continue reading The Notes You Keep

I have had a torrid love affair with wine my whole adult life. When I began socially acceptable drinking (ie-legally), I opted for wine coolers. They were just enough to get you drunk, affordable, and looked really good in your hand when chair dancing at your favorite club. See? No hangovers that I… Continue reading Wine and Migraines and Succulents (Oh My)
I love this story so much and hate that it is buried under four years of writing, which is why it is being reblogged today.

Ten years ago this month, my daughter and I got married to my husband in a barn.
I have talked about it here before and since I don’t really want to rewrite that post, head to the link if you’d like the backstory.

In 2016, I wrote about band names if I ever were to start a rock band. I even came up with cool graphics. Since then, I have kept a note in my phone of more kickass band names. Some of you keep Christmas lists and things you want to buy on Amazon in your phone… Continue reading Kick-Ass Band Names- The Sequel
I wrote this four years ago and since May is our anniversary month, I thought it fitting to reblog today. While re-reading it, so many changes have happened since this post. And so many more to come. It is still quite fitting to what we are all going through right now.

So, a couple of things have happened since my husband and I got married on May 27th, 2006.
We have seen a loved one fight cancer and win.
But we lost an amazing grandma.
Then we gained two equally amazing new human beings.
We watched family members move far away.
But then we got two members back again and we aren’t letting them go this time.
We lost some friends.

And the friends who stayed around the whole time, well they deserve an award and cake.
