Wow! Happy Thanksgiving! Can NOT believe it has already been almost a month since my last post; however, having kids makes your time fly by even faster amongst these festive holiday months. Max has had quite the month combined with six stitches involving a sharp edge on a suitcase, a nasty case of hand, foot, and mouth (which was the WORST experience that I have ever had), and a long weekend trip to Ohio. At least we squeezed in a good week with some pictures in perfect fall weather. Slowly slipping into a comatose state from all the food that was prepared today....if I'm feeling ambitious, maybe there will be more pictures tonight....

The wait is over.

I've wanted to start a blog for awhile, but when you have two kids under the age of three and one on the way, including two foreign exchange students living in your home, these small things get pushed to the back; however, in rare moment of motivation, I have decided to finally start a completely bespoke, one-of-a kind blog :) Enjoy my crazy life. I know that I do.

Here's a picture of me, my son Maximus (3), and my amazingly sweet husband Dave Hutchins (26), who is my better half. We're at a 5k race in STL at Forest Park, dedicated to my hero of a nephew Gregory (13), who died this July of HLH. I think of Gregory every day, as he was like a little brother to me. I miss him and know that I'll see him again soon.
