what am i grateful for?  

My family

long weekends away

peace and tranquility 

good health


I think these pictures pretty much sum it up.  Last weekend we spent it at my in-law’s lake home just chillin’.   My kids were amazing.  My daughter sat for 3 hours – just her and Nana – fishing on Sunday morning.  I didn’t realize she had that kind of patience in her, but the girl just loves to fish.

Someday I hope we have the great luxury of living near water.





I love this shot, you can barely see my husband carefully inspecting the hook

and my little guy drooling at the thought of actually getting to use a real fishing pole.



Controlled chaos

4 little ones fishing with hooks all on the same dock?

Yes, we’re nutty
