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. Learning to ride a bike, how to rollerblade, learning how to walk, ice skating, going to a water park, anything sports-related. I’m sure you’re thinking, “Yeah, well everyone knows…

Quick Semi-Disabled Friendly Makeup Look

  Those of you who know me personally know that I love makeup. It’s been a running joke that if Becca and I are late somewhere it’s because I was putting on my 2-hour face. So I decided to find a solution where I felt put together but I didn’t spend so long on makeup….

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,…

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

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…

Married Life With A Disabled Wife

I’m sure by now you’ve all read Christina’s posts about her disability and how her days usually go. I’m also sure that by now you’re curious about how I handle having a disabled wife. I think it’s time to clue you in, this is a blog about our life together after all.    Like all…

A Day In My Shoes & How My Wife Is Amazing

Let me start off by saying that this is my day, with my Cerebral Palsy. Everyones Cerebral Palsy is different. Different severities, different abilities and different outward appearances. 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…
