I feel like I say this every year, but how did 2018 already come & go? I would say this year has been less eventful simply because we didn’t travel as much as we normally do, but the truth is we had a BABY! So, basically that amounts to the biggest event of our lives. […]

John & I had a total of 4 baby showers. We received lots of gifts and were showered with lots of love. Although we loved and appreciated all of our gifts, as soon-to-be parents, not all of the gifts were the most practical. We found out very quickly how announcing the sex of your baby […]

Have you ever dreamed a dream that seemed too good to ever be true? That’s how we felt until last Friday. After 8 long years of learning the business, John became a Chick-fil-A Owner/Operator for a store in Vero Beach, Florida!   It’s been a tiresome, yet very rewarding journey. There have been months upon […]

I have a confession to make. I’ve written this blogpost probably 3-4 times. I’ve planned to make it public numerous occasions and somehow I always seem to delete the whole thing entirely. The truth is it’s hard to be vulnerable with the world. It’s difficult to share our intimate thoughts, especially in a world of […]
