march 11: happy place

Grandpa’s number one happy place is a cabin in the Rocky Mountains, listening to the elk bugle and the river rush by. But judging by the look on his face, sharing Sunday morning breakfast with Bubba runs a close second.

march 9 & 10: make/floral

Sorry for the tardiness of this post. Bubba and I spent a lovely, leisurely weekend in Nebraska visiting Grandpa and Grandma and the combination of the time change and the total disregard for routine has made for an interesting 48 hours. But today was back to work and real life ((sigh)). I can’t quite decide … Continue reading

Moo and Tater absolutely adore Bubba. Moo always asks to hold him and will sit and share her toys with him and hug and kiss him for hours. Tater is fascinated by him and follows him around, pointing and yelling “BAYBEEEEE!!!! BAYBEEE!!!!” She is not a fan of sharing her toys (especially the bunnies she … Continue reading

march 7: sweet

Is there anything sweeter than a sleeping baby? I love his pursed lips and the chub of his cheeks. And in case you were wondering, here’s the wider shot: I’m the mean ol’ mama who makes him nap in his crib. Mr. Phish is the cool dad who lets him nap on the sofa while … Continue reading

With smaller, much more ticklish … Continue reading

A few weeks back, Bubba and I spent the weekend in Nebraska visiting Grandma and Grandpa. They were both working at the store, so we spent the afternoon there. Bubba loved the front windows and spent the afternoon as the official greeter.

Hello friends. It’s been a long time. I’m not even sure any of you are still out there, but just in case you are, I’m here. As I mentioned in my last post, when we lost Papa, I lost my way. For a long, long time, I didn’t feel like writing. Or being silly or … Continue reading

one year later

One year ago today, we said goodbye to our sweet baby boy. He passed away very suddenly, without any warning. The day before we lost him, he asked Mr. Phish for snuggles and greeted me at the door when I got home from work. That night, we sat on the couch and watched the Olympics … Continue reading
