My Summer of Snowy Bucket List

This is my first, and possibly only, summer staying at home with my daughter, 5-year-old Snowy. I plan to take full advantage of it, and have a lot of plans for things for Snowy and I to do together. I plan to write regular weekly posts on what we did during that week so you […]


Charlie Sees a Pediatric Ophthalmologist and Olive Gets Glasses

Their first birthday party was in the theme of Pat […]

I Concur

To borrow an acronym I first saw on reddit…. TLDR: I Concur. The article title is Having a Library or Café Down the Block Could Change Your Life and it’s exactly what I have felt this season. For us, it’s a cafe. I could definitely see a library filling that role too since the ones I’ve […]
