How is there only 2 more years until I turn 30?! Last week I celebrated my 28th birthday and I was once again reviewing my 30 before 30 list that I challenged myself to when I turned 25. This year my birthday was a little chaotic because it was spent preparing for a quick trip to Washington but it was still a special day. Dylan … Continue reading Only 2 Years left
Once we had the shell of our house the next part was exciting because of all the little details that make it feel like a real house started to go in. During the next three months our house got all finishes that make it a livable space and it was exciting to watch. One of the first things to go in was the doors and … Continue reading The Howard Casa: Construction P. 2
We bought our house when it was at the foundation stage. Seeing it go from a slab of concrete to a full house with walls and ceilings was incredible!

I feel like 2020 threw everything through a loop, and while it was still a great year for me, I didn’t accomplish nearly as much as I wanted to. At the start of 2020 I had set up my goals, had a plan of attack, actually did … Continue reading Is There Even A Point?

A couple of days ago we took a quick day trip to Phoenix to explore the Desert Botanical Garden. It was a very surreal moment walking around with Emiliana since the last time we went to the garden was for our Babymoon when I was very pregnant with her.
