Last week I was checking my Abbott and June emails (which I hardly ever do) and saw I had missed an email from a girl at some social media startup platform. The email said she had come across Abbott and June’s Instagram account, thought it looked like a great fit for their beta and was […]

Does anyone know the odds of a one-year old getting possessed by a demon? It seems like the odds would be pretty low but based on my experience with Abbott last night, I’m wondering if maybe it’s more common than I think. Last night at about 11:30 we heard screaming come from the boys’ room. […]

Marty has started preschool and IT IS showing. He is verbal in ways I was hoping he wouldn’t be for at least a decade. But he’s also so hilarious and spunky that there are days he literally makes me laugh cry. He is a ball of light and emotion and love and I DON’T WANT […]

Last year, Seth and I planned our surprise wedding in a matter of four months. Still, to this day, I have people come up to me and ask me questions about how we planned it, what made us want to do it and about our friends’ reactions to the surprise. I have people all the […]

In preparation for anniversary week, I reached out to some of the most in love, hard working couples I know to ask for either their best relationship advice or the biggest lesson they’ve learned within their marriages. As we all know, relationships are hard – marriage is hard. A smart woman once told me everyone’s […]
