It’s my oldest sons golden year, last year of teens, and officially 19 years old. He is what started this journey of ours having kids, he is the one who made me fall in love with every part of this mom job. I can’t believe its been 19 years, they always said they would fly by and they are! But I have been so lucky to be so close to you to be able to watch and enjoy your journey growing up and not feel I’ve missed it. I’m so thankful. Love you.



Biggest Bubba gave his guitar to Tripp and his learning how to play books. Tripp is enjoying picking it up and learning. Long road ahead but I think he is excited to be on it.

Our oldest made us breakfast and then an amazing Pad Thai dinner. Man he can cook! The kitchen and the dinner table is where we all mostly like to congregate and enjoy each other. I absolutely love this and the amazing food, conversations, and laughter that have come with it.

I had to get a stool for this shot, he is not quite 6’3. But I love his hand in motion, chatting it up while cooking, my hand talker.



Seriously good Pad Thai recipe, he did add in 6 thai dried chilies to the sauce because hello we need heat for ours. It was perfect!


Dancing might happen at the table, LOL! we all approved, dinner was delish! Thanks Cree <3



Still so cold, still snow, and now ice out today. So here are my goofs caught playing around.
