Jay Gets Iced

Jay’s friend and Zach’s godfather, Cole, challenged Jay to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday.

Back on the morning of October 7, when four pregnancy tests came back positive, I never thought June would actually arrive. But […]

3 Years Down

Jay and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary last Tuesday, April 29. Since Jay was working until 8 p.m. that night and it wasn’t like we could just go out and get a drink after he got off work to celebrate, we decided to do something the weekend before it. Jay surprised me by booking […]
