Easter 2018

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I love waking up to the excitement of digging through the easter basket my mother so lovingly constructed the night before. It is, of course, different now that I’m older; my dad and I share a basket nowadays. Different is not necessarily bad, I can now return the…

Family Fun

Mine and Caleb’s favorite thing to do is take our fur baby Kyber out for strolls (stroll is our linguistic compromise between walking and rolling).
