January 5 already. Let’s not even talk about how long ago my last post was. We are now referring to 2013 as the “Lost Year” – we bought a new house, did a lot of cosmetic work to it over... Continue reading

Last week when Mac (best husband ever) got home from a 9-day work trip, he walked in and asked me to go to the basement with him. He had a surprise for me that had actually been sitting in the... Continue reading

Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve updated, huh? I guess that life in general and that Ironman thing kind of got in the way. Mac has been traveling a ton, the kids are back in school and I switched to... Continue reading
