Ella and the joy of Legos

Legos are such a wonderful toy. I loved them growing up, even though I didn’t have legos of my own, my friends and eventually my younger siblings did, so I had plenty of time to enjoy them. Ella and I picked out her first legos the other day and we took them camping – they […]

5K Update: Less than a week until Race Day

Ok, so in less than a week Erin and I will line up to run this 5k, and my training has consisted of exactly TWO runs! Combined those two runs didn’t even equal the 3.1 miles I was trying to get up to speed for. Now, I have been ill the last couple days, but […]

5k Update: Days 4-6

The last few days I was traveling for work. While an ambitious person may have tried to find the hotel gym, I instead indulged in room service food and drank my body weight in gin.

What a fun family I have

Lately, I have been taking note of what a fun little family the four of us are. There is a lot of laughter and creativity in our home most days. Here are two recent moments that come to mind: After almost 4 hours in the car, driving up to Northern Michigan to go camping a […]

Happy Birthday John Lennon

5k Update: Day 1

I went outside and ran around our block today. I kept a solid uninterrupted pace the entire way, which was good. But since our block is only 0.5 miles, I now need to work my up from 1 lap to a little over 6! Sweeeeeet. Almost as sweet as the 6-layer chocolate cake and raspberry […]

A 5k? Me? Seriously?

I am not sure how it happened, but Erin talked me into running a 5k with her. It is in like 2 weeks and I am not ready to run 3.1 miles – at least not all at once. Now, I am not totally out of shape, but I sit at a computer for a […]

Like mother, like daughter

What a wonderful six years it’s been

Today is our 6th wedding anniversary. So we have now been married for as long as we dated before getting hitched (I can feel Erin rolling her eyes at that – see how well we know each other?) Back in 2004, we had a beautiful wedding weekend at Casa Cody Inn, Palm Springs. It was […]
