Someone who made you proud

This prompt couldn’t be more timely.

I’m super proud of my husband. I’m always proud of him, but especially today.

Today he was promoted to VP. He’s worked so hard, and it’s long overdue. I couldn’t be happier for him or prouder. ❤️

I’m so glad the kids were home tonight to help congratulate him.


A fave thing

Their relationship. 💜

They’re upstairs laughing and chattering non-stop.


It’s like 9 hours later, bedtime, and they’ve decided to camp out together in the family room. They begged me to stay up late, and I couldn’t say no. I can hear them talking and laughing and goofing on each other in that carefree, super comfortable way that is unique to siblings. It just makes me so fucking happy.


Some of the gifts from the fam. They know me so well.

From Dave –

We’re doing the tests together, and I’m so excited. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time, but never got around to making it happen.

From Jackson –

From Freya –

It’s hard to tell from the crappy pic, but it’s a sterling silver cat dangling from a chain.

From both kids –

I’ve been wanting this. ❤️

Oh and then there’s this!!


This little road trip has made it clear that acquiring an SUV needs to be a priority in 2019. My VW Beetle cannot be the family car. This is a very tight fit.

You should have seen us yesterday when Bismarck was in the back too! 🤣

Oh and the trunk is completely full, like we barely got it closed.
