I bought this backpack for George when he was 6, going into 1st grade. It’s lived a good life, but after 3 years it’s torn and tattered, ready to retire. Not to mention, it has cartoon sharks and minnows on it- an incoming fourth grader might prefer a more mature or neutral backpack. Not George. I’ve offered to get him a replacement but he refuses- his reasoning is that “when I’m famous one day, they are going to put my backpack in a museum.” And he’s totally serious. And now, I love this backpack.
We're Matt and Sally - and these are our little ones: Francis, George, Samuel and Scout (the dog, not pictured.)
We bought this domain name for our wedding 10 years ago and it evolved into a family blog when our oldest was only 3 months old. There have been lapses of writing here and there along the way, but we're back and hope to do better.
Matt is an attorney by day and woodworker by night. Sally is a momma, photography enthusiast, and Grammy Award winning freelance graphic designer. She designs album packaging for the Nashville music industry - having designed albums for Merle Haggard, Brooks and Dunn, Amy Grant, Blake Shelton, and Kenny Rogers to name a few. ;)
Our goal is just to live life creatively. The blog is simply a family journal. Our hope is to record as much as we can for our kids to enjoy someday. Because unfortunately, we bought the baby books, but never filled them out. Here's to hoping this makes up for that.
