I started writing about life back in 2000.

That’s 15 years ago for those of you that haven’t had enough coffee yet to do math. 15 years! And things have changes a lot since then. One thing that has changed that I really miss is just talking about life and the simple everyday things that make life so awesome. 

There have been ups and downs these past 15 years, but one thing that I’ve gotten really good at is seeing the good in everyday…. so I’ve decided to start writing about our everyday life again. I can’t guarantee it will be exciting all the time, but I can promise that I will find good in every moment. Let’s start with yesterday…




Here is San Diego that is the same as winning the lottery, almost. But to those of us that have to water a grove and be so careful about every drop of water we use… it sure felt like that. After the thunder left and it was just water falling down we went outside and jumped in some puddles. The jury is still out who had the better time. Me or Emmy.


After some puddle jumping we headed to Target to buy some croissant bread for an upcoming post and video! Thankfully I did actually buy the bread since I’ve been known to go to the store and buy everything, but what I really needed. Em LOVES the Dollar Spot so we spent what felt like 100 years looking at everything that was there. At the end she decided she wanted nothing. Time well spent I tell ya!


And I finally found a Coke with my name. I took this picture and then felt kinda bad that I didn’t buy it (what an awesome marketing job), but I don’t drink sugar drinks or caffeine often so….


I can’t even tell you about this picture, I’m still not sure what was happening…


Maddie’s big buy for the day. There is a reason we call her brains! 


This is going to come as no surprise to anyone.

She picked this out and then spent hours last night playing with is. When we were at Target we had a group of people ask if they could take their picture with her. They thought the rainbow hair extension was real. <— I’m cool, but not that cool!


Well maybe… and you know what I learned from today? That I take life way too seriously. I need to add more silliness back into my life.

How was your day?
