As I drive home, I can already feel it slipping away, that temporary universe that we had created. I can remember every moment, the smells, the tastes, the feeling of puppy fur and with every snowy mile, it is a little further from reach. That space that was magically created for just one weekend is … Continue reading Dog Sledding

We've basically seen the whole state! One of the things we laugh about is how we are so used to driving somewhere … Continue reading Fall road trip/OKC
My friend's kid turned 7 today. Which is WILD, he is growing up so quickly. Every time I see him I'm completely shocked to see a lanky kid rather than the chubby toddler I expect. It's such a privilege to be a part of this little person's life. This year we decided to do presents … Continue reading Pumpkin Train
