Happy Thanksgiving

From my little family to yours, we wish you a happy, relaxing, and delicious Thanksgiving celebration! Thanksgiving will always be my favorite holiday – one of the many things my dad and I have in common. I love the anticipation of preparing the menu, grocery shopping, frantic last minute trips to the store, spending all day in the kitchen, and enjoying an incredible feast surrounded by those we love the most. Today and everyday, I am grateful for my amazing husband, supportive and loving family, a career I am passionate about, and the opportunity to live in this wonderful world. […]

Lucky Number 3

What started off as one update to share has now turned into THREE. (!!!) I’ve written and rewritten this post so many times I’ve lost count because I’m not exactly sure how to share this all. Know that we are truly, wholeheartedly grateful for every opportunity that has come our way and believe everything happens for a reason (when combined with a TON of hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and challenge). But first, here’s what’s happening! 1. I got a new job 2. Grant got a new job 3. We are moving to CHICAGO! You might be thinking WHAT? You just moved […]

Thanksgiving Menu 2016

Thanksgiving NEXT WEEK! It’s my favorite holiday and I am thrilled to be spending it with my little family. My parents are flying in from Phoenix on Wednesday and we’ll spend Thanksgiving Day here in Minnesota, just the 4 of us… #3musketeersplusG We usually go to Cedarburg for Thanksgiving, but we are mixing it up this year – it will be nice to have quality time together and delicious eats! Friday, we’ll head to my grandparents’ house in northern Wisconsin and spend the day with my not-so-little little cousins, aunt, uncle, and grandparents. Should be a relaxing and really fun […]

October 2016 in Review

I know I’ve said we’ve had crazy months before, but NOTHING lives up to the past month (and upcoming month) of exciting adventures, travels, and opportunities! In short: 8 flights, 5 cities, 3 weekends away, and so many happy memories. October brought the most gorgeous fall colors I have ever seen. Like, “stop in your tracks and just stare” gorgeous. The sky in Minnesota is SO blue and when combined with the bright colors – it’s made for more picture perfect days than I can count. I’ll try to remember this when we have 293843 feet of snow and it’s […]

September 2016 in Review

Well, another month has passed! As always, it was jam packed with lots of our favorite things!! We are definitely adjusting to life in Minnesota and I’m loving all of the fun fall has to offer AND the fabulous weather! I’m already wearing boots and sweaters. It’s basically heaven. We kicked off September with a trip to see my parents in Phoenix. They bought a beautiful home! We spent much of our holiday weekend planning their new digs, eating, drinking, and laughing. A perfect weekend in my book! And actually, we’ll be there next weekend installing closets and helping organize. All […]

Hello, Fall

As summer draws to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the past season – the hardest season of life I/we have gone through and I’m sure it won’t be the last. A season that was full of change, challenge, stress, sadness, and longing for routine, normalcy, and familiarity. I spent much time missing my Nashville home and family, my actual family in Phoenix, and Grant as he was gone more weeks than home. I have tears in my eyes as I write this thinking about my sweet girls and the memories Grant and made on almost every street […]
