Our Couch Saga

As part of our move we are getting a new couch, the current couch in our house is a leather one that sucks; seriously it is the worst, it’s only 3 years old and has a sag in the middle, the leather is peeling and worn, and the frame in one arm is cracking. We…

Four Generations {photo of the day}

We have been home for a week now, and I still feel wiped out from the trip! We were traveling for more then 24 hours by the time we got back from Peru to the house, and I wasn’t feeling amazing for a few days from a migraine that I had gotten our last full…

Almost Home

We are in the long term parking lot of the airport, a three hour drive from home, just over 24 hours after starting our travel back from Peru yesterday morning! The Inca Trail was amazing and grueling, but I will share details later, a I am honestly just too exhausted to do anything right now…

Cuy, The Other White Meat.

So Long, Farewell!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to let Y’all know that I was going offline for a bit, my mom, step grandma,  and Gramma are sticking around town for a week and a bit to watch our kids for us while Paul and I take a long awaited graduation trip with my little sister and her…

Running Late

We have been delayed all day, lightning struck our first plane and delayed it, and we had to run for our second flight, only to find they had given our seats away because we cut it so close with our connecting flight! We were able to get re assigned seats, a kind lady offered to…

Graduating…..

This post is a scheduled post, I am actually not writing it today, because I am at the Colosseum in Richmond VA, graduating from VCU with my BIS in Historical Craft and Costume Studies, with a minor in History.  My mom…
