My in-laws graciously agreed to keep Theodore and Olive, so J and I could go away and celebrate our five year wedding anniversary. Let me tell you how amazing it was—Read More
There have been many times that I've wanted to do a post-trip-packing-evaluation, but I've never gotten around to it. The journey home and reacclimation period is always so hectic, I just say fuck itRead More
I want heated floors. I wish it was warmer where we live.
I need to learn how to use my new full-frame camera properly. It will be such a waste of money if I don't...
I need to take a multi-vitamin, specifically something with vitamin-D, but I wish they didn’t taste so bad.Read More
Life lately has been flying by, and creeping on, simultaneously for me.
This never-ending winter we've been enduring for the past six months is KILLING ME. So fucking drab. We were recently teased with a couple of nice sunny days with highs of 10C/50F, but the temperature has since dropped back down, and the weekend looks like rain and possible snow early next week.Read More
Life is officially back to normal after a weekend full of pampering, indulging, and most importantly—FREEDOM.

Today is Theo's second birthday.
Last night I was asked what my most memorable 'Theodore' memory was from the past year, and I'm kindaaaa embarrassed to say that I had a hard time coming up with one. This past year has been full of memories FOR SURE. But of Theo alone...? I'm coming up blank.
One of the reasons I struggle with blogging is because writing does not come naturally to me. I envy those who can put down their thoughts eloquently—and more importantly, QUICKLY—to paper.Read More
Talking to yourself. Constantly mulling over thoughts, decisions, schedules, asking yourself questions, questioning yourself, making yourself laugh (just me...?) We all do it.Read More
Yes :) I've decided to give blogging another go. Even though I have so much MORE responsibility, and so much LESS personal time to devote to blogging—or myself for that matter—I feel like this stage in my life could benefit from the typed cathartic release more so than in years past...Read More
Okay, before we get started—
