    Month 100, 101 and 102

    Dear Olivia, I feel like a ping pong ball at the moment between school, work, extracurricular activities and just with life in general. You might be asking yourself, why am I no longer writing these letters to you more often? Am I no longer interesting? Are my interactions with you unworthy of a blog post? Do I […]

  • Land’s End Hiking Adventure

    Land’s End Hiking Adventure

    To those who follow my Instagram, know that we are busy folks. We can’t sit still and when we do have a free moment, we’re usually out exploring. Early last year, we discovered a love for hiking. It came at a time when we were cost-conscious (still are) and were looking for activities we could […]

  • Month 71 & 72, Version 2.0

    Month 71 & 72, Version 2.0

    Dear Miles, I’m currently sitting alone in the kitchen basking in the glorious quiet that is currently enveloping the household. I do not hear siblings fighting. I do not hear the request for another snack. I’m not being berated with question after question about everything under the sun. The quietness feels so foreign to me but […]

    #ostockdamhagen16 Part 5: Copenhagen

    After the amazing week we had in Amsterdam, we said our farewells and departed for Copenhagen. We had another late flight but we remembered the Amsterdam airport having plenty to do so we decided to arrive a bit early and to do a little last minute souvenir hunting. By this time, my head cold was […]

    #ostockdamhagen16 Part 4: Our Final Days in Amsterdam

    Our last full day in Amsterdam gave us a chance to tackle a few things that we didn’t get a chance to check out during the week. After a quick breakfast, we walked across the bridge to the NEMO Science Museum that received rave review from fellow Amsterdam visitors.

    #ostockdamhagen16 Part 3: More Amsterdam!

    The third day of our stay in Amsterdam also happened to by mine and Ryan’s 10 year wedding anniversary! What better way to spend your wedding anniversary than to look at hundreds of varieties of tulips. Ok, I can think of a few things but we’re in freakin Amsterdam in spring!

    #ostockdamhagen16 Part 2: Amsterdam

    Amsterdam, I have all the heart eyes for you. After seeing countless photos of all the beautiful canal houses and reading all about the wonderful things the city had to offer, I was beyond excited for the time we planned to spend there. I will miss the expressions people would make when I told them […]

    #ostockdamhagen16 Part 1: Stockholm

    I had the greatest of intentions to blog while we were traveling on our whirlwind Scandinavian trek but failed completely. We returned a couple days ago and after recovering from some of the worst jet lag I have ever experienced, I’m ready to share with you all the wonderful/crazy/stressful/exciting details of our journey.

  • Cabin Fever

    Cabin Fever

    I’ve been incredibly inspired lately by pictures of cabins, particularly cabins in desolate settings. The tranquility and sereneness depicted in these pictures bring a calmness to me that is often necessary when the littles start screaming their nonsense at me. Oh, to be in a tiny red cabin with nothing but nature all around is […]
