Well, we’re back in our home state of Texas! It’s been a good three weeks here, on our way PCSing (Permanent Change of Station) out to Peru. It was a taxing drive here from Monterey. I drove down to San Diego with the kids (8 hours of driving, plus stops) while John finished checking out, […]
MLK weekend was a beautiful one. Not only was it a 3-day weekend, but the weather was absolutely perfect every day! Yes, it was January. And yes, it was 75 degrees all weekend. Here’s a tip for those of you who come to The Monterey Bay Area: January is one of the best months out […]
I bet you thought I was going to give you a look into what my day is like with two little ones. I know you were thinking that, because I think all the time – I wonder what her life is like? I wonder if I’m the only one who struggles with patience? I wonder […]

Yesterday afternoon we drove to Carmel Valley for a free date night. My parents had signed us up for a wine club membership last time they were here, so we get free tastings at Heller Organic Winery. It was our first time using our free tastings and it was really awesome! You just pop in, […]
This morning we wanted to go tide pooling again, but John and I also had 3 and 5 mile runs to complete. So we decided to run to the coast and take the path along until we found a good place for tidepools. It was a perfect combination of work and play. My sister, Ivy, […]
When I married John and left Texas my little sister was just 11 years old. This month she’s staying with us here in California. Both to help with the kids and our transition from NPS to DLI (which, in some ways is much more intense than the post-grad school), and just to spend some good […]
Last week we visited the Earthbound Organics Farm Stand down in Carmel Valley. We wanted to see the pumpkins, and frankly, we just wanted out of the house. The kids had been sick for two and a half weeks. A few days after we got back from Nashville, Cliff started with a runny nose. It […]
