I Love You K, Happy Birthday

It’s your birthday week!!! This year marks 6 of your birthdays we’ve spent together, but it feels like I’ve known you forever, and also like we’ve barely had any time together, if that even makes sense. I look back on photos of us together and we were such babies! Our lives together haven’t been perfect, none ever […]

What is Open Adoption - Our Kind of Wonderful

What is Open Adoption?

Adoption is hard, if I’m being honest. You put yourself out there, hoping that someone is going to like you, and want you to be the parent of their child. Your life is inspected by a social worker and you have to prove that you’re “fit” to be parents, when if you’d had biological children […]

Date Night Jar - Our Kind of Wonderful

Date Night Jar

I’m sure you’ve seen the date night jars all over Pinterest, just like I have, but I could never find one with date ideas that would really work for us. I finally took the plunge and made one for us, in another attempt to get weekly, not just monthly, date nights to be a thing. […]

Happy Father's Day K - Our Kind of Wonderful

Happy Father’s Day K!

Throughout it all he was still able to be happy and enjoy life, and he was mostly our Sherlock. He wasn’t quite the same, but […]

Letter

Hey there, We’re Pax, K, and A (My name is Lindsay, I go by Pax, a college nickname and my husband is Kelton, I call him K, and we have a daughter Adeline, who we call A).  Eight months ago our lives changed when we became parents to A. She is the spunkiest, most adorable, […]

I'm a Mom - Our Kind of Wonderful

I’m a Mom

Motherhood is unlike anything I imagined, harder, better, more demanding, more rewarding, it’s just more. I still want to pinch myself, to make sure this is real life, that A is our daughter. And, being a mom has changed me, in ways I wasn’t sure I could ever change. I feel things, deeper. I cry […]
