We were in need of another camera. And by in need I mean I wanted one. Groupon Goods had the Kodak Easy Share Z5010 as one of their available purchase. I waited until the very last hour and then ordered mine. I have been very pleased with it so far. Here is a sampling of the photos I’ve taken so far. [Read more…]
For Hike Day this week, we chose O’Neil Woods in Bath, OH. O’Neil Woods is the 242-acre former family farm of William and Grace O’Neil. William O’Neil founded the Akron based General Tire and Rubber Company in 1915. The O’Neils donated their property to the Metro Parks in 1972. [Read more…]
Last Thursday, Jacob and I stopped at Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt shop in Fairlawn for an impromptu afternoon date while running some errands. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but have been wanting to check it out. They had me at with their uber cute logo and bright pink exterior, so I knew I had to check out the inside decor. Guess that’s the designer in me They didn’t disappoint. The colors and design are as sweet as their yogurt. We were immediately greeted by happy staff and asked if we had ever been there before. I think she could tell by my “huh?” expression that we hadn’t. [Read more…]
We’ve nicknamed this delicious soup “Basketball Soup” because, made ahead of time, this reheats in less than five minutes so we can enjoy a hot meal after Ethan’s basketball games. [Read more…]
Hello New Year. I know we are a little late in saying it being a week into 2012 already. We’re super excited about these next twelve months even though they will probably fly by quicker than the last twelve. Kendra and I have been quiet with the blog for the past few weeks. We promise it hasn’t been from a lack of interest. We have both been extremely busy with the obvious holiday craziness, as well as new and exciting changes that have come about—both professional and personal—for both of us. As the months continue, I’m sure we will be describing more about our new endeavors as they will most likely affect our topics and activities we share on our blog.
So our little blog has sat quietly, patiently awaiting our next adventure. We have a lot of plans in the works, so stay tuned and enjoy!
Happy 2012. Many blessings and wishes to you and your families!

Down a winding, tree-lined country road in Kidron, OH sits Lehman’s Hardware Store. Part store. Part museum. All adventure.
The intoxicating, earthy scent of smoked wood wrapped us in comfort and nostalgia as soon as we entered. Even for those of us who grew up exclusively in cities, with our knowledge of country living limited to Little House on the Prairie, the assault on our senses immediately transported us to yesteryear. The grand post and beam construction of this superstore is the perfect shelter for the products of simplicity it houses. [Read more…]
