You might have noticed it’s been a little quiet around here the last week. I might have forgotten to mention on the blog that I was taking off to Chicago for a week – sorry about that! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably figured it out with all the...
Road Trip To Canada

Road Trip To Canada

I can’t explain how excited I am! Months ago, my husband and I requested that we take our three foster babies (soon to be ours) to Canada. I have to be honest, I thought the judge would say “NO”, but I was pleasantly surprised when my social worker...

Drink Tea Like The Irish

Ever since we’ve arrived, I’ve been drinking non-stop tea! I love it, since this is something I have done a long time in my family (we are dutch). I remember when my husband and I first started dating, it was kind of a ritual to have tea (or coffee for...
Day Two: Dublin

Day Two: Dublin

It was our last day in the great NYC. I can now say I truly love New York! We had such an amazing day! My husband and I were able to do SO much in such a short amount of time. We had 8 hours to get around the Manhattan area and hit as many hot spots as possible! We...

We finally arrived after a long day of planes, trains and automobiles! We drove to LAX, flew to Dallas (almost missed our connecting flight) and finally Newark. We caught a train to the subway and made our way to the hotel in Manhattan! It was pretty interesting...
