It’s that time of year, the first snow has fallen. This first part of winter is actually really enjoyable on multiple fronts. The holidays are right around the corner, which usually means gathering with family members and taking a little time off from work. I’m certainly planning on both as my workload has been on [...]

It is a little less than 18 months since Juniper Mae Ed was delivered into this world to a tear stricken father and exhausted mother. Her little misshapen head proved malleable enough to restore itself to it’s healthy rounded expectation shortly thereafter. The bright red spot which developed a few weeks later above her right [...]
About three weeks back Teresa and I were doing some landscaping work in the back yard, I was digging up some of the dirt by the new shed. The ground level was too high to open the door on the shed during winter, which inhibited being able to drive through the shed with the snowblower. [...]
I called Mom this morning and think she appreciated it. My parents were here this last week to watch Juni as our daycare provider had vacation planned. Having some help around for those situations really does mean a lot–thanks Mom and Dad!

Every two years, Teresa’s family gets together and does a vacation somewhere fun. Two years ago, it was North Carolina on the Outer Banks. This year it was the Gulf Coast of Florida, in a town called Clearwater. We spent the last seven days there hanging out and visiting the beach, looking for sea shells.
Woke up today thinking about Dad. My father is 68 as of a few days back, truthfully I struggle to remember his age and have to ask near every year. I wonder if he knows mine?! :-) It may be just a personality flaw, I do not remember dates, numbers and the like easily. Some [...]
Well Tempo has officially arrived–and she has been named Juniper Mae.
