For months and for reasons unknown, Will has been incredibly fearful of riding his bike. The only reason that I can think is that a few months ago he fell off his bike, and my ever-so-cautious first-born has refused to get on his bike ever since. We tried everything we could think to get that … Continue reading #142 Be Brave, Little One.
I seriously cannot get enough of these two together. Their love for eachother just melts my heart. These are just some pictures over the last few days with them; a day in the life with these two.

My brother. He may act big and tough at times, but he is the most sentimental, most sincere, and most loving person you will ever meet. He is getting married this September, and while I was perusing the website today I came across this: Katherine Marie Sokolow, the ex-Nicholson. My one and only, and … Continue reading #50 My Brother, Matt.
We visited my mother's grave today. I have only gotten to see it twice since she passed away; one of the hardships of living far away. The last time I visited, it was an absolute disaster. Will was not quite three at the time and not feeling well. I was really hoping to see her … Continue reading #43 Sweet Baby Nate.
