a bit about us


my name is carla and i write this blog. my husband's name is matt and he appreciates this blog. ez (pronounced eazy) and sullivan (sully) are our the children & the stars of this blog.

met in 2001, kissed a lot in 2002-2003, wrote letters from 2004-2006, wed in 2007, traveled in 2008, purchased a home in 2009, added a dog (guido) to the family in 2010, added our baby boy (ezekiel red aka the big EZ) in 2011, spent 2012 and 2013 hunkering down to make some dreams happen, and added sullivan david (aka sully bear) to our family in february 2014.

matt is a 3D character artist (for Disney!) carla is a dreamer with a day job. ez is crazy awesome. sully is the squishy one who keeps us snuggin'.
