The Great Union of Natalie and Ken

One of my own beautiful bridesmaids tied the knot recently. It was awesome to be a part of her wedding and pay back some of my dues from my own wedding chaos. The morning started early and…


Partner

  Handsome and I built a bench for his mom. During which she stopped looked up at us and said, "You two work really well together." I take it for granted that Handsome and I can tackle fence…


Monopoly

  Dear Nate, I don't particularly like that you have kicked my butt in Monopoly the three times we have played. And every time I've been the banker so I know you're not cheating. It's just not…


Organizing

A Full House

Handsome's family isn't quite as big as mine, but that doesn't mean you can't still have a full house. There's just something about having every table full. There's something about having a line…


Twins

I've always had a special spot in my heart for twins. Since marrying handsome it's obviously only grown. There's just something about having a best friend in life and through out life. Handsome and…


Little Things

  I leave notes for Nate pretty frequently. Little things here and there and sometimes I wonder if he notices. Then I found this photo and if Handsome wanted to take a photo of it surely he…


Dear Nephews

You're growing at that stage where every moment we see you it's something new. A few months ago it was solidly crawling and now it's the beginning stages of walking. I wanted you to know I'll…


Handyman for an Uncle

I've always had a doer for an uncle. He's always made things, small things, big things, worn things, and new things. He's the one I ask on really big projects. Can I really do this? Is normally…


Trucks

  My dad rolled up in his truck while my whole family was there and waited for someone to hop in because he was picking someone up and I overheard this conversation. "That truck is so Tim." "Oh…


Fireworks

My aunt happens to live in a great area that pays for fireworks. This is great for multiple reasons. One no one gets injured with fireworks. Two there is less waste in the world if you just put on…


Commercial

I asked, what are you drinking you look like a beer commercial. I've been in awe for this kind of brotherhood this family has.   - Tomato


Memories

There's something about the visual that never changes. I can guarantee I have a picture just like that of me when I was a kid. And this pier? Same Pier from when I was a kid. We've only changed a…


Interesting

  That's the side table by my dad's chair. Handsome took this picture because he liked knowing that the book he gave my dad made it to that spot. I didn't really think anything of it until I…


I Made This

  I found that fabric at thrift store and I spent more money than I wanted on it, but I knew exactly what I was going to make out of it. It just took a year to finally get around to making it.……


Relaxing

  Our garden has since taken off. The chair hasn't since moved. It's nice to be able to sit in the shade. It's nice to be able to sit. - Tomato


Celebrating Birthdays

  I've got an awesome friend who has a great amazing 9 year old daughter and we were able to celebrate her birthday with her recently. What do you get a 9 year old? The list could go on…
