so this happened finally! It’s a gorgeous, green carpet and quite possible the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. (sorry, Violet). Landscaping will wait until Spring 2015, which gives us something to look forward to all winter. Also, we’re going to try our hand at a raised garden bed next year! Any tips? Have  a […]

our day to day, as of late

Eat. Wake. Sleep. Repeat. That’s our life right now… Violet’s 1 month old and everything revolves around not necessarily Violet, but rather feeding of the boobie monster. She’s textbook perfect as far as newborns go… predictable (THANKS to the book Babywise!). She eats 8 times a day, followed by awake time for 20-30 minutes, then […]

John + Jenny + Jacob

This sweet little family was in Wahoo for a family reunion at Spencer Hill Cabin… it’s just the perfect place to relax and have outdoor fun away from regular life. It happened to be midway for their whole family (Jenny and John drove from Sioux City) and they rented it for 3 days I think. […]

adjusting to baby

sheila’s man troop

Sheila + Andy live up the street from us… I’ll never forget the first time we met them. We were elbows deep in our Phase 1 renovation (still living in our basement on a mattress, if I remember right) and their oldest wasn’t even walking yet. They walked by with the stroller and introduced themselves… […]
