In the past year D and I went from teenagers young adults, to parents. In February of 2014, we welcomed my 3 year old brother into our home permanently.

 *PS. It is nearly impossible to get all of us looking/smiling at the same time
PPS. D is hunched over because he is 6'4", he actually does have a neck!*


    I grew up with a big, close family. We all live within a 15 minute radius of each other. I was the oldest and only girl of 4.

   In 2010 I found out my biological mother was having another child. I have the awesome privilege of raising him, J!

   I love family time, subscriptions boxes, and photography! My camera of choice is my Nikon D5200.


   He is the rock in the family. He supports us through any and everything. D is the funniest person I know, seriously, he can make anyone laugh. He is the realist in our relationship, while I am the dreamer. He lets me dream but catches me when I go too far!

The quote that fits us best is from Cameron Tucker, on ABC's Modern Family

    "There are dreamers, and there are realists in this world. You'd think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not, the opposite is true. You see, the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists? Well, without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground."

   He also stepped up to the plate and never questioned bringing J into our hearts and life as our own.


   The one who made us parents in the first place, he rocks! He is the biggest ball of energy ever, with the biggest heart and smile of any three year old I know. He has been through so much, but keeps trucking along with the happiest disposition.

   He is in love OBSESSED with sports, particularly baseball. Basically, his entire day is spent outdoors, and he wouldn't want it any other way. J is ALL boy!

   Since I grew up with all brothers, having a son was not news to me. We are NOT afraid of a little LOT of dirt around here!

   He asks D and me EVERYDAY  for a baby "siser" (sister). While a bun is not currently cooking, I have a feeling if a brother comes out, he will not be too happy. Though, I am sure he would adjust and teach him to play baseball after just a few hours in the world!

   So, That is our family. We try to keep it simple when we can. Organic/local/fresh when possible. We are figuring this whole thing out one day at a time.
