Most of our 10 years of marriage we’ve lived in places with snow in the winter. Now that we’re back in CA, I don’t miss the snow at all! Ok, not completely true – I love looking at the snow from inside a warm house, ha, ha! I’m loving these snowy pictures from Blair:


Ways to safely keep guns in a home. This is something I feel so strongly about! I hate reading stories of kids accidentally finding loaded guns in someone’s house and shooting and often killing another child. I hate it because it makes me incredibly sad and most of those ‘accidents’ can be prevented.

The hot Texas summer was so worth not having snow this fall/winter! Snow is beautiful to look at but not to drive around!


We received an offer on our home and hoping to close on December 20 (!) so we’ve been busy looking at rental homes in the LA area. Feels like deja vu because we were just in this process in April!
