A Glimpse

I have been saying that I was going to get this thing up and running and well, here I am finally... I started this blog so I could keep my family & friends updated on what is happening in our world...
Here we go... I am 26 years old. I have been married for almost four years now to my wonderful husband Adam. We have one son, Blake, he is 18 months old and the center of our world. Parenthood is truly the most incredible thing imaginable. Our family is the pretty standard American fam...I have been at home with Blake since he was born. I never really knew what it meant to be a "stay at home mom" until I lived it, don't get me wrong I love being able to spend each day with Blake, but I guess I just really had no clue as to how much work it truly entailed. Watching Blake change each day is great, he is the sweetest child, I love every second I get to spend with him.

We have had a pretty busy summer, it has been great really. I am not really a sit still kind of a person so being on the move is just fine by me.The beginning of June Adam and I snuck away to Mexico for an entire week! It was fabulous and just what we needed, anyone who is married and has a baby knows that time for each other tends to be a scarce resource...especially time alone to talk & reconnect, and that precisely what we got...thank you Mexico!! It was a little difficult leaving Blake behind for an entire week, but we left him in great hands and knew it was something we had to do for us.
Then in July Adam graduated from NADA, this was a school that is located Washington, DC, he was there for 7 weeks over the course of the year studying hard...we couldn't be more proud of all of his accomplishments! So we traveled to DC for a long weekend to see Adam and his brother Ryan graduate, it was very nice. While we were there we saw a lot of the sights as well.
Our next adventure was to New York of my favorite places in the world! My sister in law Alyssa has danced there for the past 3 summers, she is involved in a program that is carefully orchestrated by the Radio City Rockettes. Blake and I went on this trip with my mother and father in law....and Alyssa of corse leaving Adam behind, he was unable to come out due to work. We had a fabulous time while we were there, we visited the fire museum, which Blake loved, shopped a little, Blake went on his very first carriage ride around Central Park, and went to see Chicago on Broadway...
Now we are home, well at least for a few more days, Blake and I are taking our annual trip up north to see my parents for 2 weeks. We can't wait to see them!
So I guess that is about all for now, I am sure I am leaving out so much but I guess I will try to keep things updated from this point on.
