Flawless

I was almost six years old when my sister, Alexi (aka Flawless), was born. And I was pumped. I wanted a baby sister like no other; wished on stars, asked Santa a few times, and even maybe used some of my birthday wishes when I blew out my candles, too. I mean, really, how lucky…

Monthly Dose of Oxygen: Part 2

The days are long, but the years are short. How many times have we heard this as parents? I know the time flies by; it already is unfathomable that the boys are almost 2.5 years old.

“Dad!”

I could not let Father’s Day pass by without acknowledging the man who fathered the children who inspired this whole blog, aka my best guy. Ryan is kindhearted, has a work ethic that is second to none, will give you the shirt off his back, and truly lives to make me and the boys happy.…
