Finally Going To Get Some Answers… Maybe?

Hello, everyone. So with Coronavirus happening, our initial steps to add to our little family were postponed until now. Since we’ve last posted, I’ve had an MRI and we found out I have a minor case of Schizencephaly. Schizencephaly is a developmental birth defect that is characterized by abnormal slits or clefts in the cerebral…

An Update To Starting A Family

So a couple weeks ago I had a brain MRI because the last time I had one I was 20 months old. Getting a diagnosis so early in life means that your parents obviously know more about the details of your diagnosis until you decide you want to know for yourself. So now, at 30,…

Organizing A Small Kitchen

We moved into a rental house a few weeks ago and the house is quite small and everything is “efficiently spaced”. With little counter space, we had to get creative about storage for small kitchen appliances like the blender, stand mixer, food processor and others. We basically have a large house’s worth of kitchen items…

Reaching A Childhood Milestone at 30

So, the typical timeline for a lot of milestones that people accomplish happen when they’re young. When you’re able-bodied you might not even think about it.

The Lakes Are Moving!

It’s been a hot minute since we posted on here. The last year hasn’t been the easiest, for multiple reasons. One of them being that we are living with my in-laws and it’s hard to feel like newlyweds, living our first year of marriage together, when there’s no privacy and each of us like doing…

Wedding Photos

Hey there, everyone. It’s been a minute, we know. We’ll do more of an update in a couple days, but we got our wedding photos back so we figured we should share. If you follow us/Christina on Instagram (christinaglake) you would have seen them already, but here you go!

New Year, New Changes

Sorry it’s been so long since we wrote on here. Nothing big to report. Now that we’re married we obviously would love to move out of Becca’s parents house but Becca is looking at different job opportunities that would possibly make buying a house impractical right now. So, we are still moving out, but we…

Hello, 2019!

So it was the last day of the year yesterday and Becca and I had planned on going to dinner and a movie (we’re not huge partiers). Well, we looked outside yesterday afternoon and it was snowing. Hours later, still snow. So we thought it was best, especially for me, to stay home. We cooked,…
