What to do on Date Night?

Date night changes once you become a parent. At least it did for us. We’ve actually only been on 4 dates since Annabelle was born, and 2 of those have happened since she turned 2 in February. Now some of you think I’m crazy, and some of you are thinking you are in the same […]

Rose colored glasses

Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about how fast time flies by us, probably because Annabelle’s first birthday is on Sunday.
