Ornaments and Birthdays

Every year since we’ve been married, I’ve added a new photo Christmas ornament to our collection. One for us, and one for each kid once they showed up to the party. When we’ve been married for 50 years, our whole tree is going to be a giant scrapbook and I love that! (I really try…

“The Best Christmas Ever”

It’s been so long since I’ve sat down and wrote a blog post that I’m drawing a complete blank on where to start!
