I can’t believe it’s 2015. Ava will be two next month. TWO! And I’ll be turning 30 at the end of January. It’s surreal, but not depressing. It’s also a milestone, and because of that, I’m going to try to make some big changes in my life this year. I feel, more than ever, that […]

My Mom and Dad

It’s hard to get these two in front of the camera. My dad would rather make goofy faces and my mom is concerned about her wrinkles. But every wrinkle is the result of a laugh from one of those silly faces. They’ve been married for 30 years. And this marriage is time-tested. They’ve been through so […]
