My week took a VERY unexpected turn. Thursday afternoon, Josh took me to lunch in Malibu where our story first began. The spot of our first date, where we shared our first kiss. He got down on one knee, got as sappy as I’ve ever seen him, and with four words, gave me my happily [...]

On Co-parenting

IMG_8303-.jpg

I am always in awe when I see two set of parents, no longer together, that can be friends. You always want what you can’t have, and for me, this is most definitely something I strive for. Even if it’s only a “you are doing a good job in my eyes”, or “Landyn is okay, [...]

He hates crowds, lines, and waiting, so Disneyland has never stood a chance. Fast forward 25 years, and you get your Dad taking [...]

Landyn’s first dance recital

IMG_5941.jpg

There’s something about watching your kid on stage for the first time that leaves you beaming. It’s their expression of self in front of admiring strangers that gets me. Not a care in the world except performing a routine they’ve had drilled into their little brains every week for the past 6 months. They know [...]
