Cait likes to text me stuff that cracks her up. Recently, she’s been on a lot of”Aunt babysitting duty” so I wasn’t surprised to get this one.
She’s great with little kids. Just the right amount of fun and sass and responsibility. And she’s totally going to be this mom with her kids. As I still am with her. After posting something humorous but to the point on her instagram, she found me about as funny as this little girl finds her mom. :)
*Looks like the video has been removed. Basically, the mom keeps scaring her daughter while she’s waiting for the box to pop. The daughter is NOT happy with the mom doing this […]
Having lived with several seriously smart and capable dogs in my life, I’m not surprised to see something like this. I think we’ve only just begun scratching the surface of what dogs are capable of.

Doesn’t it feel like the second you figure anything out in life, it ends and you’re forced to start all over […]
This is a Black Locust tree. Our property is full of them. And at this time of year, the most glorious scent wafts through the air. I do believe it may be my all-time most favorite smell.

The entire flower portion is edible, […]
