After a short hiatus, I am back to blogging. Lots to report in this one post so I’ll try to hit the highlights. A while back, we went on a family ride, minus Emily who was in Illinois. Very enjoyable and Jessica was like a dream horse compared to her crazy younger years. Mike and Hank got along like two peas in a pod. Mike … Continue reading I’m Back!
Since I sit in an office all week I like to be outdoors and be as active as possible on the weekends. Mike had gotten me a new bike for my birthday so this weekend was the perfect time to finally try it out. We went on the new river trail which is just a few miles from our house. The trail is about 50 … Continue reading Active Weekend

Also I … Continue reading Green Thumb

As everyone probably already knows, weddings can be a gigantic expense and very easily spiral out of control and go overboard. For Mike and I, this will not be the case. I’ll be creating a series of “Wedding on a Budget” posts that will allow … Continue reading Wedding on a Budget
I’m finally making this blog post that I was meaning to do two weeks ago. It was finally a nice day so Mike and I went hiking. I was tired of always hiking the same old trails that I have done numerous times so I went online to search for something I had never done before. I found a promising one called “Rock Castle Gorge” … Continue reading Rock Castle Gorge
