We Will Miss You, Our Sweet Olivia


In November of 2016, we adopted our sweet Olivia. It was more of a rescue situation. Her previous life was a bit grim. We took her in and she immediately became part of our family. That evening shortly before Petco closed, we purchased her habitat, food, Timothy Hay, treats, bowls, a water bottle, etc.

Our Valentine's Day Was A Little Different This Year


Today we broke the Valentine's Day Tradition that we've had since 2011. Between the chaos of buying a house, waiting for a closing date, having 95% of our belongings packed including the kitchen, and Lisa having to cover 2nd shift for the next week and a half, it happened. But. It was okay.

The First New Magnet For...


It was a busy weekend. Packing. Filling in nail holes. Cleaning. Finalizing details. Packing most of the kitchen essentials. Getting the baking done for the week before packing the kitchen essentials. Notes. Lots and lots of notes and reminders. Housework. Baking. Cooking. Planning. Our brains working overtime. Not a lot of sleep. That's okay. It's going to be like that for a while because we are writing the next chapter in our life.

After Going Through What We Did Back In 2014-2015, We Needed To Do Something...


I was chatting with an old friend of mine earlier today. She is very seldom on social media, but decided to check in on the overnight due to a bout of insomnia. That's when she discovered that we were in the process of buying a house. She reached out via email immediately.

Books And Bread


The past few weeks have been a complete emotional rollercoaster. We're in the process of buying a house. You can read about that here. Between packing, last minute paperwork, waiting, and trying to stay focused, it has been overwhelming. However, amid it all, I have discovered that books and baking bread is a phenomenal distraction.
