• Christmas Stockings for the Girls

    Christmas is so different when you have kids. Even though the girls are only 2 and 1, it’s so fun to share with the little things like baking cookies (Olivia helps and Meghan watches) and movies-yes I have a complete list already. We have talked a lot about how we are going to approach Christmas with the girls. How many presents should we get them? Do we give them practical gifts or fun gifts? Do…

Today’s Video is more of a short film / spoken word / inspirational video as opposed to a normal update on the rest of our trip. This spoken-word piece began to take shape in my head on the tail end of our time in Pismo, we normal spend Thursday at the beach and it’s usually the day we stay the longest and try…
