365 days later…

Where in the world does the time go? Like a flash of light, our little boy’s birthday was upon us in the blink of an eye. It seems like only yesterday we were welcoming him back home to the cats, a slew of visitors, and introducing him to this thing called life for the veryContinue reading “365 days later…”

Riddle Me This…

There are some things that you just never part with. Although I am admittedly a huge fan of purging and ridding the house of things that take up unnecessary space or has just accumulated over the years, there are still a few things that I know I will just always hold on to. Case inContinue reading “Riddle Me This…”

First Father’s Day

It’s been a pretty cool first Father’s Day weekend. Yesterday, Meg and I took the little guy to a public market (sort of like a farmer’s market, but with additional things like crafts and other vendors alongside the farm stands). and since it’s held outside in the courtyard of a train station, we got toContinue reading “First Father’s Day”

Yes, I locked myself in my backseat

It was pouring rain yesterday, as in severe storm-type of pouring. So, with his little windbreaker hood over his head, I hurried the little guy out to the car in the morning as we headed out for the day. With the new car seat in place, especially with my tiny car, it takes a littleContinue reading “Yes, I locked myself in my backseat”

Family ties

You never know how paths are going to cross. My wife and I met purely by chance, when a co-worker of mine, when I first started at my current job, convinced me to take part in a community theater production. I made new friends, one of whom, six months later, I would begin dating whenContinue reading “Family ties”

Walking for the animals

To anyone who knows our family or reads this blog know just how much of a connection we feel with the animals we share this earth with. We are all connected. From the grass we sit in, the trees that blow in the wind, to the deer that run through those green blades of foliage,Continue reading “Walking for the animals”
