National Park Map Prints

We moved into our new house last November and have been slowly working on updating the paint and decor to match our tastes. Up next on my list is decorating the office. Hubs and I have established a “I do the decorating and he has final veto power” pact. So, I’ve decided to focus on a subtle nature theme, that focuses on our various adventures through photos, tchotchke’s, and a couple prints. After a couple trips to local decor stores, I still hadn’t found the perfect prints. I then turned by search online, which of course, led me to Etsy. Within minutes...

Battling Infertility

Infertility. It is perplexing how one single word can bring about so many emotions. In an ideal world, it wouldn’t exist, as every couple who wanted to have a child would be able to have a child. In the next best scenario, the word would be part of the phrase “we overcame infertility.” Again, every couple wishing to have a child would have one, even if they encountered struggles along the way.

Handing Over the Trip Planning to my Husband

If you were to ask my husband what it was like planning a vacation with me, he would first laugh and then tell you he leaves it all up to me. My need for control of situations around me and desire to fit in as many National Park Service sites as possible in a single trip means that it is just easier on everyone involved if I plan our trips. However, due to graduate school and health issues, the planning of our BIG vacation to the Pacific Northwest and Alaska (more posts coming soon) mainly fell on the sturdy...
