Week 35/52

Weekly snapshots of life in 2016 How was your weekend?  For us, it was a whirlwind of activities as we celebrated August birthdays, the girls wrapped up theater camp and Brady ventured out with us to Lambertville, a town over an hour away from us.  We’re going full blast here, you guys, as we wrap up summer 2016. …

Week 34/52

Weekly snapshots of life in 2016 Two more weeks to go before school starts! A part of me is beginning to feel a little unsettled already, moving away from that easygoing summer mode I’ve been operating from the last couple of months. There’s back-to-school shopping for Ines that still needs to get done — thankfully, Chiara’s …

Week 33/52

Week 11/52

Weekly snapshots of my girls and life in general in 2016 I apologized in advance but our weekly snapshots are probably going to be a bit puppy-intensive at the moment.  Just hard to resist all the puppy cuteness.  We’re finding it hard to get anything done in the house with Brady at home as we lose track …

Week 10/52

Weekly snapshots of my girls and life in general in 2016 And just like that our family of four becomes five. This weekend was all about Brady, our golden retriever puppy. He had a rough time during our one-hour drive back home yesterday from the breeder. This week will all be about getting him settled …
