I’ve always been really awesome at keeping a diary.


But I still very much enjoy having little snippets to look back on when I do bother to write something, so I’m going to step up my game and try to keep some notes here at least once a month.

You’re welcome to snoop on our goings on or skip these altogether if snooping isn’t your thing 😉

We escaped the Midwest right after Thanksgiving, but not soon enough to miss the first big snow storm.


So we were with David’s parents in Texas for a couple weeks, and then my parents in Mexico for a month.

Maverick turned 6 there, and we made it to the San Diego Safari Park before the year passes we got for them last year ran out.

And we went on a date for some crazy good fish tacos. My mouth is watering right now thinking about it. Hmm, we didn’t even instagram it, what is wrong with us 😉

And then………. we got up at 4 in the morning to fly to Costa Rica earlier this week!

So that’s where we are for the next 7 weeks, Lord willing, and we’ve been SO enjoying shorts weather again, especially the kids! And having the chance to play with pets, too.

Maybe someday… #dream #simplivision #lab

David’s more than a little thrilled to be back in his old stomping grounds, of course, and since it’s been 4 years since our last visit, it’s cool that the kids are now old enough to really enjoy everything. Hopefully we’ll have time for a few fun adventures. Stay tuned!
