After two days of non-stop rain, the sun decided to make an appearance so that we could enjoy Mother’s Day this past weekend!

Valentine Gift Ideas

I don’t know how it happened, but Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! We as a family don’t go overboard for this particular holiday but we aren’t ones that pass up a day to show others some love either! Jack and I typically try to squeeze in a brunch together to avoid the dinner […]
