‘Life’ pages might be my favorite.

I love having some of Gabe’s biggest school and sports memories documented in his scrapbooks, but my favorite photos (and therefore, my favorite layouts) are often ones of him just living life. These are the pictures of fishing excursions, crazy faces he made, hiding under a mound of stuffed animals and more. They capture the

So, so sick!

Right now, people all over the world are feeling the heart-wrenching pain of having loved ones in the hospital. Making it much worse is the fact that the people in the hospital are often alone, because visitors are being kept at bay to control the spread of coronavirus. When our younger son (he’s 6) came

Honoring the Class of 2020

None of us could have imagined that our Class of 2020 high school (or college, for that matter) seniors would have ended their 13 years of school this way — e-learning at home under government orders due to a worldwide pandemic. Yet, here we are. Many of them, understandably, feel a little cheated. They will
