Guess Who’s Back!?

  (Top Row: Springfield Cards game and a lake day with Samson) (Bottom Row: 40’s and Cheese Balls party, Not Journey Concert, park day with Samson) I spent this entire last winter planning events and fun things for us to do this summer. Danny and I declared it “the summer of fun” and hit the…

Samson is TWO!

  Yes, I am one of those crazy dog ladies who celebrates their dog’s birthday. Now that we have that statement out of the way, happy birthday to my Samson dog! Growing up we had a dog and a cat that I loved but I would not call myself “an animal person.” Animals should be…

Banana Bread and Breathing

Breathing is such a crazy concept if you stop to think about it. Without it we wouldn’t be alive but I am sure most of us go about day-to-day not even thinking about breathing. As I am sitting here typing this I am making myself think about it and now I feel like my pattern is…
