[December] To love and be loved

When you find "the one", you just know.

reflecting on parenting…..

Kids opening doors at Canyon Creek August 2012

Last week was rough. Not really the entire week. Particularly last Sunday. Our 3 year old is definitely up for challenging all of our parenting capabilities right now!
