• Allison’s Photo Editing Challenge!

    I have been interested in photography since we got married in 2011. I always loved the idea of capturing a place or a moment and having that to hold. If you have read our blog at all you can see that Myke has blossomed into a good photographer and continues to better himself.

Olivia did not nap, but she was silent and reading while Meghan napped…

    Let’s Bake: EP 5 – Puddle Cake! What on earth is a puddle cake? Myke was looking through the recipe book and this one stood out to us. The recipe card looked old and a little worn. Also in the upper right, it said it was from the 1960s! Where did this recipe come from? I asked my mom about it and this is a fascinating piece of her history. Which makes this the perfect…
