Today was Parker's final day of preschool - ever! I just cannot believe that, come August, we will have a kindergartener on our hands! His class celebrated today with a morning of swimsuits and water fun. And now, we are officially in summer mode. 

Life Lately - May Edition

May - the month where everything wraps up! Earlier this month, it was the Museum Guild's end-of-the-year fundraiser. This year's theme: Foothills to Fine Art (boots encouraged) so Max and I both donned them for the occasion! We realized it had been way too long since we had been on a date night (Parker reminded us our last one was in December!).

Airplane Reading

I love a good book on a plane. Add in a cheese plate and I'm set for the rest of the flight 😉 Here's what I brought on our recent travel to and from California...

The Infertility Diaries

A couple weeks ago, I met a friend for coffee to go over my experience with the infertility drug Clomid. She was just about to start her first round, so I shared that all my rounds have been very different, but with each round she should be prepared to experience:


A Day in the Life - Preschool Edition

Out of all the topics I've written about over the years, our "Day in the Life" posts are my very favorite to look back on.

The first week of May, Parker and I tagged along on Max's business trip to California. I'm not exaggerating when I say Max was on travel for all of April (poor guy doesn't even know what month it is right now), so we figured this was the only way to see him (#kiddingnotkidding).

Friday Faves

Happy Friday, y'all! We are back from a vacay to my home state of California last week. More to come on that in the following days (#spoileralert - I visited friends and family and ate my own weight in crab). Until then, here are some Friday Faves...

Classic Strawberry Shortcake

Freshly picked spring strawberries are heaven on earth! I feel we need just one more trip to the strawberry patch this season before it's over, because, seriously. Those strawberries. And, I'll be definitely making this recipe again...

4 Ways to Support Your Child Academically (from an M.Ed.)

I hesitate to say that I'm an expert at anything. I do, however, hold an M.Ed. And so (at least according to The University of California at Santa Barbara), I have "mastered" the topic of education. Education has always been something I loved, and even though I'm not in the classroom anymore (Parker likes to say I'm "retired"), I still put my degree to use every day raising him. Here are four ways I try to support future academic success...
