There are only a few days left in 2019 and I’m feeling super excited because I know that 2020 will be a great year.

I’m so excited to finally share our Bahamas family vacation photos on the blog! It’s been a few weeks since we returned from our Bahamas cruise and we already want to go back!

Kenneth’s Chuck E. Cheese birthday party was so much fun! We usually pick a birthday theme each year and have the whole family over to celebrate. With us moving to Northern Virginia at the beginning of March though, we didn’t have a lot of time to plan a party in Lynchburg this year. Since Kenneth has been […]
