One Ordinary Mom
One Ordinary Dad
He'll blog here too from time to time. He's the man of my dreams and a true renaissance man. A music-lover and music major in college, he's been a retail store manager, an impromptu IT guy, a non-profit campaign manager, a beer brewery logistician (I think I just made that word up), and most recently, he's been blessed with a wonderfully unique work from home opportunity that kind of combines his loves and knowledge of music and tech and some other things I don't understand. Basically, he's awesome. He also reads, writes, jogs/walks, pleasure cycles, cooks, and has quite the collection of vinyl (yes, records).
Born just before Christmas in 2010, B is our sweet and snuggly second child. He likes his books too, but is also a fan of trains, cars, bubbles, and balls. He has a quirky sense of humor and blue eyes in which I frequently get lost. He's coming into boyhood and making friends along the way. He is OBSESSED with marbles and those wooden marble runs. He also loves babies and is going to be a phenomenal big brother.
We live in the midwest, where we get four seasons. Faith, family, and friendship are the cornerstones of how we live our lives. We live in a small house (mostly by choice and some because moving is a PAIN) that we pack full of love. We chose to stay close to family so our kids would grow up knowing great-grandparents, grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles. We hope you'll find our ordinary life as extraordinary as your own! So pull up a chair, get a glass of sweet tea (or Sweetwater, a favorite treat we like to bring home from vacation), and enjoy!
