Fun Frozen Yogurt Cups

Funny story: when we first rented the home we are in, we were on cloud 9. We went from a tiny apartment with bad neighbors to a home with a yard where Fox could dance all he wanted without a broom handle “applause.” Tyler…

I love our backyard, especially this time of year. We bought a table in the spring that we find ourselves circling around each night, whether we’re eating dinner, playing games, or watching Fox paint.  The leaves have started to fall on our beloved table,…

Easy Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

It’s been a big adjustment going from hanging with Fox 100% of each waking hour to dropping him off at school and only having him nights and weekends. I get as much time in with him as I can, so I generally try to…
