6 Tips for Flying with a Toddler

Adam and I took our first flight back to Louisiana from Virginia last week with Aidalyn.  We have both had the privilege to fly numerous time (including several international flights), so we consider ourselves pros at it. This time was different, though, because we were traveling with a 21 month old. Here are our 6 tips for flying with a toddler that we learned through our experience. 

It is always horrible to sit next to the crying baby on the plane. However, nothing is worse than being the parents of said crying baby. We wanted to be prepared for every possible reaction.  read more

I am now in Richmond! This has been a long time coming, but it has finally happened.

I think the talk about moving somewhere outside of Louisiana started when Adam and I were getting married. We needed to stay in Louisiana for my tuition, so we figured we would only live here until I graduated.

Virginia, but after doing some research about the area, we fell in love!

Richmond is neat because it is centrally located to several different popular areas to visit: 1.5 hours to Washington, DC, 2 hours to Virginia beach, 2 hours to the mountains. It was the capital of theย Confederacy – so still the south. It snows there every year, and has 4 seasons – something I am looking forward too. read more

Home for a Baby – Adoption

Adam and I have always had a heart for adoption.

Adam’s aunt and uncle adopted their only son, Henry. My brother in law‘s family adopted two little girls, Selena and Stephanie, almost 10 years ago. Adopting for us isn’t a new idea, we’ve been talking about it for years.
