In Real Life

Re-entry is hard. 

I'm breaking the longest hiatus I've had since I started blogging in 2009. 

When the murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile shook our nation it too shook me from this space and activated me in other ways. 

Thank you for supporting me in other places where I've been active online and for those of you who have been interacting with me IRL, thank you especially. 

There is so much work to be done and as I write this in the halo of a history-making moment where the US is experiencing the first woman accepting a party's nomination for President, I realize this is just the beginning. 

I am in the midst of some of the biggest changes and challenges I've ever had in my life and I'm nervous but excited at the same time. 

I can't wait to share everything that's happening, but for now moments like the one above are just a snippet of what I'm relishing. 

My family and I are having a beautiful summer making memories here in Portsmouth, NH. It really is a special season we're in and I thank you for following my family's journey.

Our July 4th Weekend at Montreal's International Jazz Festival

Happy Independence Day! We've been in Montreal since Saturday night and are heading back home after a few more adventures today, but yesterday we spent the day at Montreal's International Jazz Festival. Since we had already experienced July 4th in our new city of Portsmouth last year, we decided to switch it up a bit this year. We didn't realize the Jazz Festival would be taking place when we first booked our trip, and I was a bit nervous it would be too much, but it worked out for the best!
