Sometimes You Just Need to Fold The Sheets Together.

The parental crank factor was running high this morning, with nighttime sick kiddo wakeups, a mountain of yesterday’s (washed but unfolded) laundry and arguments revolving around who would go to the gym first.  Our intervention came in the form of collective sheet folding.  Meeting in the middle with a kiss gave us a strong dose of much needed Saturday morning perspective.

Sometimes you just need to remember where it all began. 



  1. You guys are hot! 😉

  2. Ha! Thanks Rachel…if only I included a photo from this morning…more like a hot mess!

  6. So very true! My husband and I just celebrated our 12th Anniversary last week and I was just saying how it's all the little things that really help make a marriage work and keep a family happy. (And it doesn't hurt that I am just as crazy about him now as the day we met) Thanks for the beautiful reminder – and by the way this is a gorgeous pic of you and your hubby!
