Scott is 4!

by Chelsea Myers on December 13, 2016


We’ve had quite the birthday celebration for our big boy.  Between Will’s birthday, Scott’s birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, it has been a busy, festive time for us. He requested a Hank/Mr. Ray birthday party at one of his favorite parks, and – because people’s schedules fill up quickly this time of year – we […]

Playing hipster before hipsters were cool: Overly posed wedding shot: In Albuquerque (I can’t believe how young we look!): […]

Weekend in review

by Chelsea Myers on May 20, 2013


Our weekend was a nice combination of activity and rest. Friday we tried to go downtown to State St. so I could sell some clothes at ReThreads, but it was graduation weekend and everyone moving back in with their parents had the same idea.  We stopped by the old Pop Deluxe and picked up a […]
