Wouldn’t change a thing. Love 12 years later.

by katherine on July 23, 2015

{Note: I just found this in my drafts folder… from more than 2 years ago. So, why not just his publish, right?} At this point I’m not even sure how the conversation came about, but Saturday morning Andy was telling me about a conversation he and some coworkers were having about regrets they had/things in […]

Some nights he cooks dinner. Most nights I do. Some nights I put the little one to bed. Most nights he does. Sometimes I bring in firewood. Most times he does. Some mornings he gets up with the girls. Most mornings I do. Some nights I make sure the girls are tucked in before we […]

Love is…

by katherine on November 13, 2013

I feel like everyone has that person they look up to in life…a mentor or role model, if you will. Whether it’s career related or personal life. Back in my late teens/early 20′s I had one of those people in my life. I looked up to her in every way. In her career. In her […]

C K Say I Do!

by katherine on July 18, 2013

The entire reason we went to Hawaii was because my sister was getting married there! I’ve been wishing/hoping a family member or close friend would have a destination wedding for quite some time because DUH! Automatic vacation! The wedding was beautiful and I hope it was everything my sister and her husband had hoped it […]


My heart goes pitter-patter

by katherine on February 4, 2013

We kissed the girls goodbye and headed out the door. As we walked to the car, he rushed in front of me and reached for my car door, holding it open for me as I climbed in the car. I was sort of taken aback. Not that he’s not the kind of guy to open […]


Pushing Life to the Limits

by katherine on October 19, 2012

At 6:10 AM yesterday morning as I’m pouring Rylee some cereal and begging a fussy, hungry Reese for just a few extra seconds of patience so I can pour myself a cup of coffee, Andy looks at me from the living room and says, “Is your mom taking the girls tomorrow?” And I just turned […]


It hit me recently…we’re old.

by katherine on June 12, 2012

Yes, I realize I’m not even 30 so the fact that I’m calling us old is sort of ridiculous, but it is true. I’m not exactly sure when it happened. I mean, I’ve always been an “old soul”…opting for working or staying in as opposed to going out through college…things like that. But somewhere along […]


Spring {And Change} is in the Air

by katherine on March 5, 2012

It’s that time of year… The time of year where the sun starts peeking through the rain clouds and we start spending a little bit more time each weekend outside. There’s no doubt, Spring is in the air. But with Spring comes…work. Gone will be the days of lazy family weekend morning filled with cartoons […]


Love & Laughter is where it’s at.

by katherine on November 7, 2011

These days, weeks seem to fly by. And the weekends seem to go even faster. There’s our jobs. There’s laundry and dinner and dishes and meal planning and grocery shopping. There’s a never ending list of things that have to be done outside. Let’s not forget about actually giving the kid some attention somewhere in […]


This NEVER Happens…

by katherine on October 13, 2011

Seriously…this has never happened. Quick back story: on the way to take Ry to school yesterday, she asked if we could go play at a park after I picked her up that night. I told her we’d see how the weather was and then decide. Now, moving on… Andy was at a Suicide Training Seminar […]
