Happy Friday. We almost made it through our longest stretch of being healthy since September, but alas, that would be too easy. Round two of a nasty stomach bug hit our household this week, because one stomach bug to start the year just wasn’t enough. Marin turns 3 this weekend, and I managed to secure a unicorn balloon, a tutu, and a kaleidoscope. There’s something thrilling about celebrating your child’s birthday when they finally (sort of) understand it. Since it’s going to be negative degrees today and over the weekend we’ll be staying close to home. I think the unicorn balloon will make that perfectly ok. Wishing you all a great weekend.
Here’s the best of the week…

I loved reading about how Jess started her blog. Her story sounds similar to mine in a lot of ways. Ultimately I think we would both say we’re so happy we took the risk all those years ago.
