Family Visit: Black & White

Thankful for a visit from my mother-in-law this week.  She brought their dogs as well and I’m happy to say that all went smoothly in that regard 🙂  Family is so precious – I’m thankful that we’re back in the States, where we can easily see them and share our lives with them.


First Days

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated the old blog.  Those weeks have been full of activity – trips to Philadelphia, Joe starting school, William & Mary starting back up again – and illness, too, unfortunately.  All 4 of us have been hit by a GI bug, one by one.  First Chris, then Joe,… Read More First Days

Jam Ma’am

I’ve gotten into a jam-making, water-bath canning, blueberry and strawberry and blackberry craze. I grew up with a great big garden in our backyard.  I will be honest with you – gardening and yard work are not my first loves.  However, I grew (ha ha, “grew”, get it? bad pun, I know) to appreciate it… Read More Jam Ma’am


Weekend Rewind

Ahh, weekends.  That time of the week where Chris gets to experience the “craziness” that I live with day in, day out 🙂  Oh, and make breakfast for the boys so that I can sleep in a little.  That’s always nice! Here’s what we had going on this weekend. Friday A pretty typical Friday.  I… Read More Weekend Rewind
