Family Pictures

October 8, 2010

Early in our relationship, Craig learned three things about me.  1.  Cards are as important as the gift.  I want to know that you stood in Wal-Mart and agonized over a card that would say the perfect thing to me on my birthday, anniversary or Valentines Day.  Yes, I know that maybe they are a […]

Hello, Fall!

August 11, 2010

The week that football preseason starts is always a tough week for me.  I get pretty used to having Craig around in the evenings and weekends throughout the year and the second week of August everything changes.  For a few weeks, until the routine of the regular season starts, he puts in obscenely long hours.

February 14, 2010

Disclaimer:  My husband is extremely hard to buy for.  Like, high school calculus hard.  But he gives really good, thoughtful gifts and is a good man who deserves a day where I take a breath to show him that I appreciate the husband that he is to me and the father that he is to our […]
