We Appreciate You

Father’s Day Festivities We haven’t quite figured out how to do Father’s Day or Mother’s Day for that matter together because their schedules kind of clash. I will say their days ended with smiles so we were pleased. To my dad, God could not have blessed us with a better protector, covering, leader, spiritual guide, and …

Exploding Card Boxes

Father’s Day Cards We wanted to do something a little different with our Father’s day cards this year. I found this incredible  seller on Etsy who makes these pop up cards for special occasions. She calls them exploding boxes. Her turn around time is amazing and she is so easy to work with. Check out …

Easter Day

Happy Easter Happy Easter from our family to yours! I hope it was as fulfilling as mine. My grandparents (moms parents) were the glue of the family…so ever since they passed, we haven’t seen much of them. Mom decided it was time to change that and invited them to dinner. She came up with the …

37 Years of Marriage

If this is what 37 years of marriage looks like, I can’t wait to get there. These two are still having fun, still in love, still best friends, still silly, still growing, still love God and their story is still going. God knew exactly what I needed when he made these two my parents. I …

Family Vacation in Corolla, North Carolina (OBX)

We arrived to  our beach house to find the pool covered with leaves, branches and two chairs that sank …

Sure you can borrow my face…

My Brittany! I’m older, but thankfully it appears hard to tell by others. I’m always up for compliments. Being the older sister I’ve had the pleasure of watching her grow and mature into the fabulous woman she has become today. She was my tag along when we were young, my mini me during my school …
