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…

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,…

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…

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

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….

But First, Coffee…

Ever since I was younger, I remember my father drinking coffee every morning. To me it was like this ritual and rite of passage. I wasn’t an adult or couldn’t start my day unless I had coffee. I admit, I probably started drinking coffee slightly too young (maybe 14/15). But when I got older it’s…

The Reality Of Living On Disability

I’ve worked since I was able. When I was a teen, I worked as a teachers aide at a summer school every summer for over 4 years. I worked at a florist, 2 massages clinics, a call center, and others. To me, having Cerebral Palsy never meant that I couldn’t work. I was/am high functioning…

Storytime: I Had A Spider In My Ears For 3 Days

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…
