I’m unpopular

As you all know, Girl Ninja and I spent an epic weekend playing tourist in San Francisco (I’ll be posting about the trip tomorrow). You also know we’ve been wrestling with a major life decision. You can read about this decision here and here. In my last plea for help, 88 of you commented on […]

It’s gonna be a short one today kiddos because life creeped up on me yesterday and ended up busier than I anticipated. So today, I thought I’d share with you my most favorite frugal purchase of all time: my wedding ring. As you know, I spared no cost when it came to picking out Girl […]

Girl Ninja and I live in a very unique neighborhood. About 20 years ago a couple decided to begin a marriage Bible study in their home. Over the last two decades that Bible study has exploded. There are now over 60 couples (spread out across 10 different bible studies) that meet together each week. As […]
