1 moving truck & 2 cars. 1 cat, 1 baby, & 6 adults. 1 National Park. 4 time zones. 5 hotels. 10 states. 2,808 miles. I was so scared of this move. The days & days & days in the car with Avonlea, especially after she decided right before we left that she hates being […]Read more "California to Georgia!"
We tossed around a few ideas for one more weekend away before the baby, but eventually decided to stay closer to home & just do things we’ve never done before. I really just cared about staying in a nice hotel anyway, so I would’ve gone anywhere! We booked a hotel right on Cannery Row in […]Read more "Babymoon"

Where we live in San Jose is a great location because we can be to either the beach or mountains (or both) in just a short drive. It takes about 3 hours to get to the park […]Read more "Adventures in Yosemite"
We’ve never done anything special for Valentine’s Day, really. The first year we were married (& our first Valentine’s Day together), we were in California deciding if we should move here! The second we were already living here & had gone back home for a visit. And then this year, we didn’t have any plans. […]Read more "Oregon Road Trip"
