Have a Cozy Weekend

public.jpeg

Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? We celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary yesterday and have a brand new YouTube video coming out in the next few days where we documented how we spent the whole day!

It’s been soooo chilly here this week (which we couldn’t be happier about) and we lit our first fire of the season! This is our favorite time of year for so many reasons and cozying up by the fire in the early morning while the sun is pouring in and at night time with a glass of wine is definitely up there as one of the biggest reasons. How is the weather where you live?

We’re babysitting the kids this weekend (!) and we plan to take them to the park that just got a complete renovation. It’s so cool and would have been our dream park as kids. We just put them down to bed so we’re going to hop off here and catch up on Carnival Row on Amazon Prime. Have you seen it yet? It’s kind of the perfect Halloween/fall show to get you in the spirit of the season, with mystical creatures and rainy, foggy weather the entire time. It’s not an amazing show, but it’s definitely worth the watch.

We hope you have a wonderful, cozy weekend, friend.

xoxo

Have a Delicious Weekend

What are you up to this weekend? Thomas’ friend Ashley is in town from South Carolina for her yearly visit, so we’re going to be showing her around town and catching up a bit. They met during training at his last job four years ago and she normally comes to visit during this time of year. She always talks about how much she loves our little town which always makes our hearts so happy 🥰.

We’re going to a bonfire tonight at Thomas’ brother’s house (s’mores!) because it’s finally starting to cool off a bit here which is so welcoming, especially coming back from Amsterdam where it was in the 50’s most of the time.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend, and happy national coming out day!! Click here if you would like to see to our coming out stories. xoxo

A Creamy Vegan Alfredo Recipe

A Creamy Vegan Alfredo Recipe

We’ve been getting into a few vegan recipes the past few nights, which naturally led us to look up vegan pasta recipes. We found this one on the Tasty app and, because they make every recipe look impossibly delicious, we had to try it for ourselves.

Coming out is hard. But besides that, it’s also freeing, scary, exhilarating, emotional, and one of the most important things we’ll go through as members of the LGBTQ+ community. But there’s one thing that didn’t occur to us after we came out all those years ago…

Have a Gourd-geous Weekend

What are you up to this weekend? We’ve got the kids again and are babysitting them through Sunday. The oldest one started school today (!) and we can’t wait to pick him up and hear about his first day 😊.

We’ve been watching True Detective season 2 lately, which, despite receiving somewhat negative reviews, we’ve actually enjoyed a lot. Maybe not as good as the first season, but still entertaining enough. Today though, The Politician came out on Netflix (finally) and we can’t wait to watch it tonight after the kids go to bed! Doesn’t it look so good?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, friend! xoxo

PS: Wow. It’s been a week, hasn’t it?

A Very Good Day

A Very Good Day

Yesterday we went out to the river land, and even though it still feels like summer, it was 86 degrees (which is a respite from the 93 degrees it‘s been every day for the past four months), the wind was blowing, and the water wasn’t AS cold as it normally is…

7 Ways You Can Help Kids in the Foster Care System

After taking the foster care courses and having our first placement, we’ve realized more than ever the need for this amazing (and sometimes flawed) system. But how can we all help these kiddos more? What can we do that will make a difference? We asked our case worker, Rachel, what she thinks the biggest needs are for the foster care system and how we can all help, and here are her seven suggestions:
