It’s Time to Go


James thought four years. I swore it was gonna be three. We were both wrong. Two years. Two years in Paradise. That’s all we’re getting. (I’ll wait while you dry your tears on your Grandpa’s hanky.) We knew it wasn’t going to be our forever home – I’m not sure we’ll ever have one of those….

December Update


Merry Belated Christmas!  If your family celebrates, I hope you had a great day!  (If not, I still hope you had a great day. Ha.)  Ours was pretty much the best one EVER.  Especially considering J was on a different continent last year.  This year was quite different.  We went to the beach! But let…
