Saving My Live – COVID-19 Edition

We are just over 24-hours into a stay at home order and on day -5 of home learning. Our spring break started this gradual-but-fast lockdown and I'm so thankful we had a full week to rest, get outside, and not worry about schedules, routines, and the rest of the school year. This past week has … Continue reading Saving My Live – COVID-19 Edition

Five Things I Learned in July

It's August, which means school starts in just a couple weeks and our routine will start again. I'm thankful for this month off - we had a busy July and it was such a relief to know that I could focus on the present, to not worry about self-imposed deadlines. But, for the necessity of … Continue reading Five Things I Learned in July

I haven't participated in Leigh Kramer's What I'm Into roundup in a long time and for some reason, this February felt like a good time for a recap. It's been two months since the move and we're settling in, painting, organizing, and making a new house feel like home. The weather this month has been … Continue reading What I’m Into 2:15

In our family, April comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. The last big push before the April 15 tax deadline means late nights, working weekends, and hardly any family time. It's pretty rough, and I am thankful that my parents live within an hour's drive and we have a good group … Continue reading What I’m Into 4:14

Bea and I just got back from a lovely five days visiting family in California. Since we're nearing the end of tax season, Frank is gearing up and working longer hours. (Our "home by midnight" rule is being bent...) My mom was heading out anyway to help her sisters and my grandma sort out a … Continue reading What I’m Into 3:14

I'm linking up with Leigh Kramer again for her What I'm Into compilation. February absolutely flew by! We are officially in the midst of tax season, which means there are days when Frank doesn't get to see Bea at all, but we do try to meet at the Botanic Gardens or Museum of Nature and … Continue reading What I’m Into 2:14

I always like reading what people are "into" over at Leigh Kramer's, so I thought I'd link up this month. January is one of my favorite months. Not only is it a new year, but it's my birthday month. Lots of champagne and goal setting over here! It's also the last month before tax season, … Continue reading What I’m Into 1:14
