Good Bye, Nevada.

Today is Nevada Day, did you know? Today, this state in which we’ve lived for almost ten years turns 150 years old. As a state holiday, the kids have the day off from school. My bank is closed. All so the citizens of Nevada acknowledge it’s legacy and history. In July of 2005, I drove my car into the valley and the thermometer read 115 degrees. I didn’t have much,

Losing Lola: The Legacy Of Our Sweet Doggie

This week I left the kids with a sitter, D met me at the vet, and we said good bye to the very first baby girl we had as a couple. Almost 11 years ago, I picked Lola as my own.

We packed up at 4am and were back home by 4pm the next day. Nuts-o, right? On the agenda was using the half off tickets to the San Diego’s Safari Park I purchased off Amazon Local (tickets are usually

Baby Boy Sebastian Turns One!

This letter to my son is a little more special than the previous ones because, well, my baby boy is turning ONE! He is officially embarking on his toddler years, and the milestone is a bit emotional for me. It’s insane how quickly this year has flown, and as I sit in my house filled with decor, ready for his Very Hungry Caterpillar party, I can’t help but let my
