Remember that time you were a kid and you met an adult who just got it. Remember the first grownup who understood how to play and REALLY enjoy it? The joy of a child is not a feeling that can be imitated. It is not a feeling that can be reproduced. But when you see it, you know. When you feel it, you know.

My husband and I are partners. Partners in life. Partners in business. Partners in parenting. Partners in all the crazy. And while I typically use this blog to share our work and life's passion, this weekend Geoffrey blew me away with his patience and talent, and I feel compelled to share one of the many blessings I have in my PARTNER!

Michael is a musian/artist with his band, UndefeatedMusik, and Loren is h

Sharing a New Glarus brew and playing more than a few heated rounds of Euchere, we have had a unique opportunity to really get to know these two. And what an awesome pair they are! Their Wisconsin Engagement Session this past January gave us just a glimpse of how fabulous they are! I mean, who else smiles that bright, OUTSIDE in WISCONSIN in JANUARY!? Their choice to go to The EPIC Systems Corporations Intergalactic Headquarters, in Verona, Wisconsin, was equally as awesome.
