A Light-Filled Friday Night


Tonight was kind of magical.

The trees separating our house from our neighbor’s have started to lose some of their leaves, which means natural light floods our kitchen and breakfast nook this time of year. Most of the time, those two rooms don’t get as much light as our living room (in the front of the house where the sun rises) and dining room (in the back of the house where the sun sets) do, because they’re squished in the center of our house and the tree branches are usually blocking all the sun from coming in.

But tonight was a different story. For the first time this year we could really see the first little signs of fall in our house and man, did it get us excited. The light was dancing all over the floors and walls and Alexa was playing our favorite radio station (Bossa Nova). We made some coffee to wake us up for a few more hours and took it all in for a second. We were running around all day making sure we have everything ready for our trip tomorrow and it felt nice to just relax, take a breather, and just be.

There’s nothing like the feeling of being home on a Friday night when you know you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Do you know what we mean?


We hope you have a great Friday night as well, friend! Here’s to the weekend!

New PO Box!


We have a brand new PO Box number! 

Everything else about our PO Box address is the same, the only thing that has changed is the number. So if you want to send us any letters, packages, or even Swedish chocolate (we've gotten that before!), you can send it to:

PO Box 485 Cleveland, TN 37364-0939.

We write back to each and every letter and love hearing from you guys. It makes our day each time we open the box and see something new from y'all. The internet is amazing and we look forward to your comments, but nothing beats an actual hand-written letter, don't you think?

We Finally Got Haircuts


It's Thomas' first haircut in six months and it was long overdue. He wanted to grow it out for as long as he could, but when it's longer, he can't seem to stop touching it and messing with it. Rather than having to deal with it, he decided to cut it all off! PJ went with a quick trim. We always feel 100 times better after getting our haircut. Do you feel like that, too?

Someone Found PJ’s Long Lost Twin


How crazy is this picture?! Doesn’t it look just like PJ when he grows his beard out? And check out those eyebrows! Identical.

One of our sweet followers (thanks Scott!) sent this to us a while back and we just now saw it. We can’t stop staring at it and have so many questions, mainly: how can we meet this guy, tell him to grow his beard out, and persuade him to take a side by side picture with PJ? Open to suggestions...
