A Quiet Christmas

As with all things in 2020, Christmas looked VERY different this year. We spent a few hours with Chris’ family on Christmas Eve which was really nice.

This past week has been extremely hard. We had to say goodbye to our dog, Stone. Stone was our fist baby. We found him tied to a fence 12 years ago.

Although we are sad not to be with our loved Read more »

Our dear friends Gary and Alyssa welcomed their son Lyle Flynn last week, and yesterday we were finally able to meet him. He is so Read more »

A weekend in the Berkshires

We got our of the city for a few days. It was great to get out of town. We relaxed, did some shopping and tons of cooking. It was awesome to spend time with Chris’ brother and his wife too. It was cold but we made the best of it. Chris is making his “I hate the cold face” that he will wear from now until Read more »
