Pumpkin Picking in the 919

I know I keep promising to update more but I’m having that work/life balance issue right now. One of these days, I am going to sit down and document Zach’s big moments, even if no one cares by the time that I do. Maybe I’ll challenge myself to do that before Thanksgiving. Last weekend, Jay […]

Easter 2014

Happy Easter to all my friends out there who celebrated it today. I hope it was a great day for you. Jay and I had a very low key Easter here in Raleigh and as much as I missed seeing family today, it was a really great day. The past two Easters have been a bit […]

Our Aviator Brewery Adventure

Jay and I decided to have another Living Social/Groupon inspired adventure on Saturday.  This time, we visited Aviator Brewery in Fuquay Varina, NC.  Their logo looked familiar, but upon looking at the list of places where I can find Aviator beer, I’ve never been to any of them nor are any of them in Raleigh.  Unless […]

Tip Toe Back to Normalcy

It’s funny the effects that grieving can have on you.  On one hand, you know that life goes on and you have to go on with it, but at times you find the other hand clutching your forehead as you try to block out memories and reality that pop up at inconvenient times.  It’s been […]

I think this is my last one of these cool date posts for the year.  I’m going to use it to talk about my weekend. It was finally nice this past weekend.  Raleigh has had such weird weather lately; it’s been MUCH colder than it usually is in February and March.  It’s been a lot […]
