Sometimes you just have to re-center and re-evaluate.  The winter was long and cold this year and it was a doozey mentally on the Courtneys.  My sun-loving husband was craving our Hawaiian life while being surrounded by three computer screens the majority of the day.  And I felt like our walls were coming down on […]

Once we got Annalise squared away with the babysitter, Sara, I my changed clothes again only to change back into my first pick. Once I put my seatbelt on, Chris ran back inside because Annalise had taken his license and debit card and hid them once again.  Luckily, I saw her hanging out around the […]

Found my diaries from my study abroad in Germany in 2006.  This entry comes from my 9th day in Eltville, Germany.  I stayed with my friend Kelly and his daughter Alyssa prior to heading to Dusseldorf for my program.  While he went to work I had time to go on adventures alone.  Prepare yourself for […]

Let Us Be Adventurers

By Alicia Courtney

One night around 9:30pm I ran into the office and proclaimed I needed white cake and white icing ASAP.  I haven't had many cravings honestly so Chris grabbed the keys and headed to Krogers :)  He took this pic while I was occupied with the cake making.

I’ve been back in Lawrenceburg for about 3 months.  I havent’t “lived” here since high school although my parents have lived in this same house for almost 30 years.  Lately everyone has been asking me what our plans are .  Quite frankly we have no permanent ”plans” that are set in stone. Currently we live in the […]

Baby Names, Boobs and Business Trips

By Alicia Courtney

I think baby Annalise like traveling too ;)

I was so excited to introduce baby Annalise Kathleen in the last post.  The process of naming your baby is such an important one and every couple does it differently.  When it came to the baby girl name we both loved “Anna”.  So we worked from there.  My grandma’s name is Annabelle, I was almost […]

Back Home Again in Indiana

By Alicia Courtney

Today I have decided I need to just relax and do whatever I want to do.  (If I did what I need to do I would be cleaning the toilet. Ew)  Lately I’ve been going 100 miles an hour and then I’ll crash.  Like 3 hour naps, then watch Game of Thrones then back to […]

We have had a lot of random adventures since arriving in Japan.  So I thought I would throw up a few videos to really make you feel like you are here. After a night of drinking at our favorite bar, Lotus, Chris mentioned he saw a sign for live music at a place called the […]
