Love in a Cup

In the four years we dated and five years we’ve now been married, we’ve never spent this much time together — until now.

I used to tell people we got along better the more we were apart.

Back then, it was probably true. We both needed our space to grow, pursue — push. Time apart gave us the freedom to do that, to push and push and push throughout the day and then crash back together. Minds tired. Bodies exhausted. Souls ready to decompress.

Raising a Baby with a Rottweiler

Around here, big is just the way we do things. Garrett and I are big people, with a big baby and a big dog.

A really big dog in fact. A 111-pound Rottweiler with a head that comes up to my waist and a mouth that devours cookies like they never existed. While his bark is loud and his frequent talking can scare most people, Zeus would like nothing more to cuddle. Or play fetch. Or chase our remote control car. In short, we couldn’t have asked for a better family pet.
