Is it just me or did this weekend fly by a little fast? Neil jetted out of town on Friday afternoon to host his brother’s bachelor party (getting married October 1), and Neil’s mom and a friend came up to spend the weekend with me and escape the ruckus of a a huge bonfire bachelor […]
Although the majority of our trip to Minnesota was bittersweet, we did manage to have a little fun in the Twin Cities last Sunday. It feels like forever since Neil and I last visited the State Fair, and for my little brother, even longer. The last time he went he was 10 years old. Madi […]
Do you have a special place? A place that brings instant comfort and a feeling of security? For my family, that place is my grandparents farm. With all the moves and changes in our lives over the years, this is the one place that has remained constant. It smells of hundreds of family get-togethers, my […]
Happy Father’s day to the best fathers any two “kids” could ask for! I am definitely my father’s daughter, and Neil is almost a clone of his dad. Cheers to Dad’s everywhere!

Happy 27th Birthday to my brother Eric. They don’t make them better…or weirder.
