And They Called It Puppy Love

Adjusting to our newest addition Our family has grown by one. We now have a little girl at home. This little girl: Meet ZuZu Bailey Ramsey, everyone! She is a 4-month-old miniature schnauzer and weighs a little more than 9 pounds. She hails from Indiana, but now she calls Kentucky home. I may have mentioned …

Home Sweet Home

Making our house our own Cory and I bought our house in January 2017. We were thrilled to get it. The local market is insane, and most houses are already sold before the realtor can even take the listing off Zillow. More than one inquiry about a listing yielded the response that someone had beaten …

Beat the Clock

When life gets in the way of spending time together Last week was crazy busy for me, and this week looks like a repeat. And this happens, right? For one reason or another, some weeks seem to be a little fuller than normal weeks. Thirty minutes here, an hour there, and before you know it, you don't have time to eat dinner because …

Diff’rent Strokes

A couple's TV struggles We're not all alike, which is good. Because if we were, we'd all watch the same thing on TV. And how boring would that be, right?

Last week took me completely out of my regular routine, workplace, town and sleep schedule. My alma mater, Western Kentucky University, hosts a workshop somewhere …

The protector

Marriage offers learning opportunities, and Cory and I have experienced several in just less than four months in to this thing. Sometimes we learn about each other, our relationship, or ourselves. A couple weeks ago, I think we both learned about all three of those things. Our wedding ceremony is still pretty fresh in our …

‘The Wicker Man’

The event of yesterday played out in my head much more comical and chaotic before it happened than it actually was. We bought furniture for our sun room. Online. As in, assemble it ourselves. Anyone without a mechanically inclined background who has had to assemble IKEA furniture or a child's playset knows the struggle that …
