Our Big Puppy Update

It’s been a while since my last update on our puppy, Ivy, and since it’s never a dull moment I figured I should let her check in! First of all, I did not know I was signing up to have a crazy, four-legged toddler in the house. We love her dearly (and Jeff tolerates her) … Continued

What Would You Do With 4 Days Alone?

Between soccer tournaments and sleep-away camp, the kids were really busy this summer. And when Jeff left for a four-day work trip, I found myself at home—alone—for four full days. No kids.
