How’s that Nourish thing going?

After Spring Break was done and life resumed its normal routine, I realized that we are a quarter of the way through 2017.  Already.  That realization had me reflecting on how I was doing with my One Word – Nourish. The whole purpose of having One Word, instead of resolutions, was to keep things away […]

Watts Take the Keys

For Christmas 2016, we continued our new tradition of taking a trip.  This year, we opted for a location where we could incorporate our new hobby Scuba.  We are keeping our Christmas trips stateside, so The Florida Keys won.  There are other places to scuba in the US, but I preferred someplace warm, with warm […]

Watts Take Negril

It’s been almost a week since returning home from Jamaica and I’m still wishing I was back on the island.  From the beautiful views and relaxation to the adrenaline inducing activities and new experiences, everything was covered.  And that doesn’t even include the people.  People that genuinely seemed to live the ‘One Love’ philosophy and […]

Christmas Time is Here

Cole had his first Christmas program on Monday. It was chaos – but very cute. Cole didn’t sing at all during the program, but sang all his songs for me on the way home! He looked so cute in his hand/footprint Rudolph shirt and his jingle bell necklace. I’m trying to post a video – […]

Oh Christmas Tree

Our first order of business when we got home from our Thanksgiving travels was to go get a Christmas tree (we got a real on this year!). We picked out our tree and strapped it to the top of the car. Of course, it was terribly windy and cold – which one might say is […]
