Gratitude Journal July 2019

2 minute read Things that come to mind. Parksville Trip The cover photo is from our recent trip to parksville. Great beach (with unreal tide that goes out for almost a kilometer), great playground for kids, food trucks, fun center, paddle boarding and Chinese all you can eat, etc. All in walking distance from the hotel. Just great. […]

May 2019 Gratitude Journal

1 minute read List of stuff I’m grateful for, in no particular order: Although baby Elise has been getting up a lot at nighttime for the last week or two (like about every hour and a half), I feel surprisingly functional.

Gratitude Journal August 2018

1 minute read This is just going to be short… I suppose that means I’m not thinking very much about what I’m grateful for… here, I’ll do it as a “listicle” (list-article, a new word I learned). Celeste was mostly successfully toilet trained last weekend. It was actually a pretty good experience for us. I just stayed home […]
