If you’ve met my husband, he’s probably at some point mentioned to you that he grew up on a farm. It is a piece of his personal history that defines him completely. He’s proud of his background and happy to share it with you.
Before we get to far into our trip to the farm, I should probably tell you I came face to face with the other woman. She’s a 1963 Chevy Impala that my husband is head over heels for. Her name is Marilyn. She is pretty, but a little high maintenance.
Our second night in town, my in-laws hosted the extended family at the farm to celebrate a few birthdays. There was food for 700 people, frogs, kittens, fireworks and water balloons. Fun was had by all.
Ellie took up an impromptu game of Rock-Pot, which basically consists of her throwing rocks in the dirt.
When the water balloons were ready, everyone grabbed one to quickly lob at their siblings, parents or kids.
I snuck off to take a look at the beautiful sunset, cows and Nell (the horse) acting the part of glamour girl.
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.
