Wrapping Up

Today is B’s last official of med school. Sorry, excuse me so I let that sink in for myself for a quick minute. Today is the last day of B’s Emergency Medicine rotation and he’s taking his SHELF exam just about as I write. I’ll try to save the sentimentality for another time, but I […]


You know when something big is about to happen and you know when its going to happen and you can’t make it happen any sooner but you’re filled with so much anticipation, excitement and anxiety that you can hardly contain yourself but you also feel torn because there will be Life Before We Knew and […]

Too nice outside to blog

It was super awesome outside this weekend, unseasonably so. And B is on an outpatient service right now, so he had the weekend “off”!

We celebrated the return of the […]

Since We’ve Been Gone Pt. 1: Midwestern Christmas

Hey y’all! We are back from our holiday honeymoon extravaganza! Our holidays were great! There were no books, no pagers, no white coats, just nice, quality times with those we love the most. Despite 8 years together, I finally met B’s paternal grandfather for the first time. He was ill at our wedding. He stormed […]
