  • Picnic in the Park

    Dena August 26, 2013

    Last week, Roman & I met up with some family for a picnic in the park. I’ve said it before but we are truly so blessed to live in such a beautiful area. Ringwood State Park is a quick drive from our house. This time…

    Dena August 15, 2013

    You’ll notice a new page located in the menu of the site, titled “Our Family.” I figured that I should do an introduction to our little family for new readers & friends. The page will live here & I’ll update it from time to time…

  • The Weekend

    Dena August 12, 2013

    Our weekend was quiet as Roman was recovering from his fever and his sleep schedule got thrown completely out of whack. On Sunday — after my third consecutive night of little/no sleep — I had another one of those “I-have-no-idea-when-the-last-time-I-showered-was” moments. Not exactly the most…

    Dena August 10, 2013

  • Magic at the Carnival

    Dena August 1, 2013

  • Lazy, Rainy Sunday

    Dena July 30, 2013

    We got home from our little trip on Saturday and so when it rained all day on Sunday we weren’t too bummed. I did a little bit of unpacking/cooking/cleaning while the boys took a nice, long (two-hour!) nap on the couch. I could totally use…

  • By the Pool

    Dena July 24, 2013

    On Sunday, we met up with my sister & her family at my parent’s summer place for some BBQ & swimming. It was the perfect day to be poolside — sunshine & blue skies. Roman had fun getting to know his cousin Aden. They are…

  • Roman’s Nursery: Little Whale Baby

    Dena July 23, 2013

    Remember my nursery inspiration board from all the way back in February? Well over the past few weeks, I’ve finally been putting up the final touches. There are still a few things left to do in there (mainly the shelves & the mobile) but most…
