Thirteen.

The years keep passing despite my efforts to freeze time. It’s impossible to believe my firstborn son is entering his teen years today. Can we rename thirteen to something without “teen” on the end? Thirtven has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? Thrift Store Prom Oh, my Levi. Observin…

The Tale of the Chili Dog

In honor of my baby’s 10th birthday, I’m going to take us on a little trip down memory lane. The destination is not a sweet birthday tribute to my Ezra Ray (you can find that on today’s Instagram post), but rather, a revisit to one of the funniest cringe moments of my life.   Let me set…
