STORY OF THE PAGE: It was the first big ultimate tournament of the season, all the way over in Madison, Wis. Known as the Madison Mudbath, one full day of upper 40s and rain seemed fitting. But on the second day, the rain stopped and I realized how awesome it is that my kids does sports and that I get … Read More

Make a Page Monday is back, and this installment features my new stamp set, Everett.

STORY OF THE PAGE: Aidan was home over Easter weekend and when I have my two children within roughly 50 feet of one another, I like to coax them into a sibling photo.

STORY OF THE PAGE: Last week I celebrated my 50th birthday with some wine and a list of 50 Things to be grateful for. It was a fun way to remind myself of all the good things that come with another year on Planet Earth. Of course I was going to turn it into a layout because, duh. Also, I … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: Just over a week ago, we dropped our girl off for her sophomore year of college. (Read more about that here.)
