by katherine on September 16, 2016

Life Update

by katherine on February 7, 2015

I think it’s time to get back to the basics. When I first started this blog (over SIX years ago!) the whole point was to keep friends and family, near and far, up to date on the life and times of Little Miss Rylee. Then people other than friends and family started reading the blog, […]


Snow Day

by katherine on January 12, 2014

Back in December we got a bunch of snow here. It was a Friday and I don’t particularly love driving in the snow/ice if I don’t have to plus we had a busted pipe from the night before so I ended up taking a Snow Day. Andy and Rylee were stoked to be able to […]


Scenes from the Weekend

by katherine on September 18, 2013

Oh man friends, last weekend is exactly what I needed…not only was it picture perfect, it was in fact, perfect all the way around. I kicked off the weekend with a girl’s night at a winery down the road from my house. Good food. Good friends. Good wine. Win-win-win. The girls slept in until almost […]


Work wins so you get a 10 minute update

by katherine on June 11, 2013

Work is busy. I’m home with a sick kid (yes, again). So I’m left juggling a sick kid and the work I brought home. I’m tired, you guys. Hawaii is 17 days away and calling my name. Anyway, my point is this, I’ve got 5 half completed posts sitting in my drafts. I’m sure I’ll […]

The busy season

by katherine on May 14, 2013

I really try not to use the word busy to describe my life in a conversation when someone asks how things are going. Because as a family with two young children, two working parents, a dog, two houses and 12+ acres to take care of, that’s just life. Our reality every day. There is always […]

by katherine on May 8, 2013

Here’s Reese swinging for the first time!…that happened back in March… After a […]

Weekend Happenings

by katherine on April 29, 2013

You know those weekends that are so perfect you don’t want them to end? Yea…THAT. That was my facebook status Sunday evening and it was oh-so true. The weekend was great. So great. While it didn’t start out quite like we had originally anticipated, as in, our weekend plans completely changed, it worked out so […]


First Annual Egg Hunt

by katherine on April 1, 2013

So one night a couple of months ago, Andy & I were lying in bed and he said, “you know what would be fun?” Then I told him I was too tired. Then I laughed  and laughed, because sometimes I’m witty. Anyway, he told me he thought it’d be fun to host a big Easter […]
