“Last week we said goodbye to our first dream house. I knew I would be a mess, I just didn’t realize how heavy it would be.
Sure, it’s just a house. But it is so much more than that.
It isn’t just a beginning, it was our beginning We LEPT into life, and life was like- “Oh! I see you!”…
The holidays are chopped full of countless commitments and important obligations that all need their own obligated time to complete. I learned valuable lessons this holiday season! 🤣 AND I wanted everyone else to know it.

He hopped his little paws on the side of the kennel with his ears raised at attention wondering where his papa was going…”
That image will live with me forever. I know that.
But I also know as a dad of 3, decisions like this are never easy.
And the ones that act like it is, have not a clue.
“To you, this may look like the normal night before trash day. A definite score for any passerby, that’s for sure. But this isn’t about tidying up before trash day or a sidewalk score.
