This was taken shortly after we moved. Ellie is settling in nicely.
The Container Store is here! In Kansas City! Type A people rejoice. I know I have.
For Ellie’s birthday, we got her a fairy costume. She put it on immediately and then, started turning Keegan into a frog. We also got her the prequel to Gossie and Gertie – Gossie. If you haven’t read them, the books are adorable.
This was one of our first fancy Sunday night dinners in the new house. The pork chops here were bathed in a wine sauce. It was delicious. The recipe will follow soon.
You forget how much fun it is to run through the sprinklers until you see a little one do it. Ellie is a huge fan.

Hello, hello. Things have been crazy around here. As you may know, I started my own marketing consulting business in 2012. I work with small, business-to-business companies who are based in Kansas City. Since I began, my work has changed a lot – how I get new business, the types of projects I take, etc….
Happy (Belated) New Year! How’s yours going? Ours started off nice and leisurely, but this week, we’re back to the grind with Ellie in school and Keegan and I both at work full-time. So, all that to stay, this is the first week I’m really focusing on resolutions, goals and intentions for the year. Every…
This year, we took Ellie apple picking. It is one of my favorite activities to do as a family. We can’t make it every year, but when we do, it’s always delightful. In late September, I went with Keegan on a work trip to Santa Barbara. It was my first time there, and I fell…
Over the last few years, I’ve slowly come to the realization that fall is a lie. Instead of holing up inside, covered in cozy blankets with cups of cider, I am, instead, flinging myself across Kansas City at a break neck pace. Sure, the activities are fun, but it’s never what I imagine or expect…
This summer, we’ve been exploring Kansas City like crazy. After months of Saturdays dedicated to dance practice, naps and errands, it’s been fun to revisit favorite adventures. One of the places Ellie most enjoys going is Sea Life Aquarium. It’s small in size, which makes it perfect for little kids with short attention spans. Also,…
I'm Lane. I’m the wife to an engineer, the mama to Ellie and a small business owner. I love trashy T.V., good books, a little pampering and great meals.
