It’s the little things…

Earlier this summer my parents adopted a dog, Ellie May. Klaus spends a decent amount of time at my parent’s house since they’re the only people I trust to babysit him. So when my dad brought home this neglected pup from a coworker I think we were all a little nervous about how they’d react

five reasons to start geocaching

A little over a year and half ago I started geocaching. Over 350 found caches later, it’s safe to say I’m hooked. I took a tiny hiatus at the end of last year but the past two months Jeff and I have been going hard. I feel like I’m mentioning it just about every single

It’s the little things…

For the past four years, I have been waiting for the day Klaus and the cats were finally friends. I adopted a puppy hoping my cats would raise him to be basically a giant cat. That didn’t go as planned though. The cats weren’t fond of this big, smelly, energetic creature, and poor Klaus could

10 things making me smile

dumb, happy puppies. finding mushy photos I honestly don’t even remember taking. making crazy colorful bouquets of whatever I can get my hands on. finding random things I don’t quite understand. ‘Y’ did you nail this here?

It’s the little things…

Y’all, every time I write one of these “It’s the little things…” posts it’s about my darn pets. Part of me wants to apologize but I also feel like if you don’t like seeing silly photos of them, you’re probably some kind of monster because they’re perfect angels. Only partially kidding. Yesterday I was walking

La Jolla

It feels strange to still be posting about May’s road trip but I still have things I need to share. Our stop in La Jolla is one of those things. Before heading down into Southern California, we had made a handful of stops at the ocean. There were a few things I was really looking

It’s the little things…

like seeing your dog be his happiest self! On Sunday we went to my parent’s for Father’s Day. As usual we ended up down near the pond, searching for frogs, and turtles. My dad is usually the ring leader. He walks along the edge with a net while the rest of us follow. Klaus has

4th annual road trip out west

A few weeks back I was sitting at my desk, drinking coffee and responding to emails, shortly after Jeff had left for work when the feeling hit. That intense urge to travel. I text Jeff and said “I need to go to the desert. We can sleep in the car again!” I figured he’d give
