March of Dimes

With just two weeks to go until the March for Babies, I’m excited to report that we are in the Circle of Champions, having raised over $1000! We had a goal to raise $2000 this year, and I don’t think we’ll get there, but I am so happy to be able to give any amount to an organization that is fighting for the health of moms and babies in need.

Book Review – Edges of the Earth

Edges of the Earth is Richard Leo's re-telling of his homesteading experience in the Alaskan wilderness. Sick of the wind-and-grind of his career and the hustle-and-bustle of the city, Rick convinces his girlfriend, Melissa, to journey with him from New York to the Last Frontier. Settling first in Talkeetna, the two and, eventually, their baby boy, Janus, learn the Alaskan ways before venturing into the wilderness, building their homestead, chasing dreams, and putting their relationship to the ultimate test.

March of Dimes

Kevin and I know all too well how blessed we are to have brought Oaklee into the world in the twenty-first century. Even 25 years earlier, things would have gone so differently. The research of organizations like March of Dimes is monumental in the care of preemies like Oaklee.¬†Please consider making a contribution towards that research. No parent deserves to lose a child they’ve barely had. While we are incredibly lucky to have Oaklee with us today, there are thousands of parents every year who cannot say the same. Let’s change that together.¬†

Book Review – Daisy Jones & The Six

Daisy Jones & The Six is an oral history of 70's rock stars Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne and his band, The Six. When the two pair up, their music is instantaneously the stuff of legends, the rock and roll American's craved in the 1970s. But their worlds didn't merge with ease. With rock and roll came sex and drugs. And with sex and drugs came trials and tribulations. Like any band, they navigate relational strain, differing dreams and the lengths they'll go to to stay together... or be apart.
