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!
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… Continue reading New Year, New Changes
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,… Continue reading Hello, 2019!
Hello everyone! I know it's been awhile since either of us have talked to you but we're still here, we promise! The holiday season has been great! Becca's family has a Christmas party every year usually 2-3 weeks before Christmas and that's always a blast. This year was definitely tamer than usual (there's usually beer… Continue reading It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Not every CP is the same. Now this is going to be a mouthful but I will explain. I have mild to moderate double hemiplegic hypertonic spastic… Continue reading A Day In My Shoes & How My Wife Is Amazing
Every so often, all you need is to just get out of the house. Winter is a rough season for me, my mental health, and my body. Walks get shorter, chances of falling increase, chronic pain gets worse, and I stay inside more than I already do which takes a toll on my mental health.… Continue reading Baby, It’s Cold Outside
Yes, you read that right. I had a spider in my ear for 3 days without knowing it. How? Why? WHAT!? I asked myself the same thing. Well, here's the whole story. One night, 2 years ago, while Becca and I were sleeping, I vaguely remember semi waking up and brushing my face off… Continue reading Storytime: I Had A Spider In My Ears For 3 Days
One of my favorite hobbies is gardening. Now, I'm not as experienced as my in-laws. I've stuck to herbs, tomatoes, and medicinal plants. But my favorite thing to grow is herbs. The smell of rosemary, lemon thyme, or lavender makes me and my soul happy. For those of you who live in a climate where… Continue reading Herb Growing Year Round
We've just gotten married. The buzz of excitement is still humming in our bodies. But now its been about a week and we've started getting back to your normal routine. It's actually a huge wave of high and "not so high" emotions. For months and months we'd been planning and paying and couldn't wait to… Continue reading Christina’s Thoughts – A Week After The Wedding
