And just like that it’s September. Craziness. August was pretty low key for us because we had our anniversary party in July and our upcoming trip to Greece this month, so most of our time was spent close to home. It’ll be a quick run down this month, but here are some of the highlights! Neil and I went on a quick trip to Cincinnati and I took a lot of the recommendations that you guys sent me and made the most of it! We were only there for about two days, but I was able to fill up my… View Post

Happy Friday friends! Sorry for the disappearance of these Friday posts for the past two weeks; I felt like I had a lot of things come up and wasn’t doing my best with time management.

If you’ve been a blog reader for some years, you may remember that Neil and I were on the verge of separation about two years into our marriage. I wrote about it in this post and have referred to it several times over the years when applicable.
