Giving Thanks

Today we both feel especially grateful for our families. It's wonderful to have all these incredible people so close to us in our lives. We love them so much!
It was my mom's birthday today and we had a craaaaazy party...... Jenna and Bobby forced her to wear a tiara in honor of the occasion, and we had my Grama Schiess over for dinner and the classic Lindsey family chocolate birthday dessert! My mom is such an amazing person-- so strong and such a great example to me. I love her so much! Happy Birthday Mom!
This is a picture of her on her bike this summer.... cause she would kill me if I put the one of her in the tiara in a public place.....

Giving Thanks

I don't know if my revival of desire to blog will be long lasting, but recently I have had the feeling that Tom and I have a lot to be thankful for, and also a lot that we can share with others. Meaning: we need to not let our lives be so consumed with work and share the love a little more.

To start, we wanted to share--in the spirit of thanksgiving-- a few things each day that we are grateful for...

W: spending time on the weekends with my husband when I'm awake and not super tired from teaching and meetings.

T: watching Saturday college football games with my wife.
