A New Fish For Briggs

Lifestyle Personal

The buying of a fish. It’s an ordinary thing, I suppose.

However, I heard it said once that the better we tell our stories, the better we want to live them. And this is an ordinary story that I wanted to tell.

It’s a story about allowance, and saving, and learning to value money. It’s about my boy’s Lego watch and shoes worn out from a whole year of Kindergarten. It’s about brothers and sisters and about caring for a pet.

And I’ll let you figure out what happened there in the middle with the neon green rocks.

Thank you for listening to my story today and for giving me a place to tell it.

The Masuen Family [with a good book]
Just after moving into their new home, the Masuen Family decided on an at-home photo shoot to celebrate this fun milestone in their lives. I loved catching just a glimpse of their day-to-day routine and just watching them be a family! Mr. Myles is fully two and certainly practiced his independence. We even took a little walk down the sidewalk together during which he showed me lots of personality. And those curls. Just amazing! Thank you, Masuen family, for letting me into your home and your lives. You are a beautiful family!
