My husband doesn’t get sick very often. But when he does, it’s usually with something mild—like a cold or a sore throat—and he spends the next 48-72 hours driving me crazy and acting like a whiny baby. Please know that I love my husband. I really do. Because of this–and because we’ve been together, well, […]
My husband and I have two dogs: Riley, the overactive pup, and, Mae. Her name isn’t really Mae, but she prefers to go by a pseudonym.

Since it’s springtime, my husband and I thought that we should do something to celebrate…like repainting parts of the outside of our home. Yeah, we really know how to party. I enjoy painting, but I have to admit that I didn’t always. Back in 6th grade, my mom decided that we should update my bedroom. […]
