A Year of Dates.

I hate to even think about this but: Christmas is just around the corner. I know, that blows me away! We’re days away from October, which will fly by. Then we’ll be jumping into Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. Before you know it, Christmas will come and go and we’ll have no clue how January 2019 snuck…

Missing in Action

Wow– it’s been over a month since we’ve posted on the blog website, though we stay active on Instagram. Life has just been… crazy. Is that a good enough excuse? Can you forgive us for our slackness if we’re honest by just saying that we’ve been busy? To add to that, I’ll be honest in…

Working for the Weekend

My alarm clock buzzes at 5:40am. Though I am tempted to hit the snooze (for the third time), I know what the morning holds and rest time is over. I make my way to the shower, rush through getting myself ready, then head up stairs to grab my little homeboy from his crib. Most days…

Valentine’s Day Fun!

Valentine’s Day is a weird holiday. Some people go all out— balloons, candy, flowers. The works. Some people do something a little more low key like an intimate dinner with their love.

Why I’m Here: Kailyn

Several weeks ago I had a friend ask if I wanted to collaborate and start a blog. It was quite literally as simple as that. After my instinctive, “um, sure?!” response, I let it sit on my heart a bit. Over the next few weeks I was plagued with doubt, worry, and questions. I wondered if…
