Friday Nesting 11/10

Friday story. We’ve had a week to let this sink in and now we can laugh it off and talk about it. I mean, it’s no big deal, but we had to change our wedding date. Here’s what happened. Last week I called the only hotel in Cambridge, Minnesota to book a block of rooms...

April Rewind

A Look Back at April Can you believe April will be behind us in FOUR DAYS?!? It’s even harder to believe that we’ve been in the house now for two months. I don’t know about you, but I feel like every month goes by faster and faster. I remember going through school and...
