First came love, then came marriage…and then all hell broke loose.

That was the Mother’s Day card I got Jenn and one that seemed very fitting. Our lives are drastically different today then they were five years ago as this entire journey was getting ready to begin. Continue reading

No, it’s not the mysterious numbers from a new Lost spinoff. This is Jenn’s Boston Marathon Finish Time, Overall Rank, Overall Female Rank, Division Rank and pace per mile. She paced almost 30 seconds per mile faster than her qualifying time and had a PR of over 10 minutes.

Not to take anything away from this amazing accomplishment, but I kind of had a marathon of my own going at the same time. Before we get into our marathons, I’ll treat you all to the DVR version of the blog so that you can catch up on everything you missed between my last post in 90 seconds. Continue reading

At the beginning of last week, I received an email from Jenn “Want this for your birthday?” with a link to an 8 person tent.

When Jenn and I first moved down here, we bought season passes and would go often for a few hours. We always laughed at parents pulling their kids around the park trying their best to keep it together while making magical memories with their kids who were either sleeping, crying or screaming.

A couple weeks ago Jenn and Nolin took a quick trip up north to visit family and for Nolin to see snow. Grace and I on the other hand, got to hang out at home and discover what type of trouble we could get ourselves into.

It started out with Jenn pointing out various containers of fruits and vegetables and explaining to me that when we go somewhere, I should bring a certain amount of this and some of that and make sure that I don’t forget to bring something to drink.

Hmmmm, I must have missed that class. So you are supposed to feed kids? Continue reading
