It’s Kind of a Funny Story

by Julie on August 15, 2014 · 4 comments

So, funny story. A year ago this week, Lindsey and I were in New York to be on the TODAY show. (Did you miss our 4 ½ minutes of fame? You can see it here.) The next day was rainy – very rainy – and we were killing time in a bookstore in the basement […]

Last weekend Tom and I traveled exactly 17 miles to celebrate our anniversary. We went from our house in the suburbs to The Hotel President in downtown Kansas City. We wanted a weekend get away to mark the occasion, but we didn’t want the hassle or expense or time involved with traveling, so we planned a […]

2014 Update

I always hate it when bloggers who have gone MIA start their posts with I’m so sorry I’ve been gone so long… But, really, I’m so sorry I’ve been gone so long. The truth is that I’ve been having so much fun over at Creating This Life that I’ve been a little preoccupied. After years of blogging […]
