The other night Sam and I went to dinner. Nothing fancy, the new PF Chang’s opened near us and we wanted to try it. Our sitter watched the girls and we headed out for two hours of just us. Somehow as we ate, the subject turned to my yet-to-be-written…

Weekends are usually pretty quiet for us. I try to guard our time on these days since our weekdays can get busy with appointments, my school work and deadlines, and next week starts soccer for Bella. These two (although this week it’s three) days are time…

I feel like this title ties in with a lot of our life right now, but while we are currently rather broke, it’s actually about the comments on my post yesterday. Hang in there with me, I dislike people who focus on haters and trolls just as much as the…

Today is Sam’s last day as an active duty soldier. It’s been a heck of a nearly six years since we started this journey in December of 2010. I remember him looking wistfully at the USO calendar we received in the mail, and wondering what was going through…
