Ode to Moving

Ode to Moving
By Bryce

Living out of boxes, slowly settling in
Glad this journey is over and a new one begins.

Unpacking, searching, Eureka!
How did we get so much stuff?
Pods, pizza and packing tape
I’ve had quite enough.

As we settle in and relax
We hope you’ll join us for a visit
And come make some memories
That is the point isn’t it?

Looking forward to your company, good times and cheer
But don’t wait to long because I really need a beer.

The First Year of Ryan Juliana

Posted by Bryce Wend on October 30, 2011

Looks like the last post I did was when our baby girl turned 6-months.   I guess you can say we’ve been a little busy, but 6-months of no posts!?!  Geeze.  Well at least I got photos!

What a great first year it has been, we are so blessed.  It is such a pleasure to see her little personality growing more and more each day.  Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what Ryan Juliana is made of.
