Checking Back In- It’s been too long!


Hi! Love my lead photo for this post. It says it all “It’s been too long girlfriend! What! A year since I’ve check in? Wow! K, not going to do an update for the past year. Will leave that another time. How about what is happening right now. My trick for finding some time? The twins are with Oma and Opa. They are a huge help to us! It means a lot.”

Reading: “Behold the Dreams” by Imbolo Mbue. Next month with my twin book club reading “The Husband’s Secret” by Liane Moriarty.

Listening to: Sam playing Zelda.

Watching: This is Us and Boyband.

Looking forward to: Mini-Vacations with the kids! Got one to the mountains coming up and another to the coast.

Sam Update: Lost his first big tooth! Yay! And for swimming, almost there! Thanks to Oma and Opa!

Twin Update: Lily can spell her name. Ellie, can ride super fast on her scooter. They both love visiting our neighbors down the street, saying hi! Asking “what are you doing?” Priceless! If you ask my mom, she would say, “yep, you did the same thing :)”.

Marriage After Kids: Lesson #3 hike to the top. Last weekend, my in-laws watched the kids while my husband and I got a hike in. This time, he said, we are hiking to the top. I’m like sure, it’s only 90+ degrees. But something happen. Maybe it was the new tennis shoes or the shade, but we did it. We make it all the way to the top of this amazing ridge where we live. We could see all of the Bay Area. But what I felt, as we were about to reach the top was the boost of energy to let go. To enjoy. To just go for it. In marriage, there can be so many worries or wonder. But at the same time, there can be so much play, so much fun, right now. In the end, you really only know for sure you have today with each other.  Take each other to the top.
