macs and fishboys

Nathan, Daniel, and the FishBoys – 2003 Years ago, and I do mean, YEARS ago, before the six kids, before the miscarriages, FishPapa, FishBaby, (now FishBoy15), and I moved to the smallish town of Paso Robles, CA.

Happy Birthday to Us (& the Week in Review)

Blogiversary

It probably seems silly to commemorate a blogging anniversary. I doubt it will be a yearly thing, but hey, any excuse for a party, right? I just want to take a minute and say thanks. This space has given me so much over the years. While we’ve been fighting our way out of debt, to […]
