Life July 31, 2017

I have some exciting news to share with you all. I launched a new website today! WAGS in Real Life is a place for women in professional baseball to connect, share stories and give each other advice. It is also a place where you can get a glimpse into the reality behind an often crazy lifestyle that is nothing like what is portrayed on television. Below is my first blog…

The Simple Show

Life September 3, 2016

The Simple Show is a podcast that explores unconventional ways of living and making the most out of things like work, travel, and family. This week, Tsh Oxenreider invited me on the show to talk about our family’s unconventional baseball life. We talk about how and why our family travels, what it’s like to live the nomadic lifestyle, and how I can’t stand the smell of ripe bananas. I had…

Life February 21, 2016

Since arriving in Arizona last week, we have quickly settled into a routine of homeschooling, pool time, enjoying the outdoors, and most importantly, reconnecting with friends. And while I have all kinds of ideas swirling around in my brain about the future of this blog, I’m realizing it’s going to take a lot of behind-the-scenes work to get there. So I’m going to say goodbye for now. Not forever, but…

Another Big Move

Life September 28, 2015

Five years ago we moved from Tucson to Gilbert, Arizona. Two weeks ago, we returned from a summer in Montana. One month from now, we will be making another big move. There are boxes everywhere.

Thankfulness Lately

Life September 16, 2015

The bags are packed, the apartment is clean, and all we have left is one final game. The championship game. Whether we win or lose tonight, I’m thankful we made it this far. Because our boys have been winning, we have had 10 more days in Missoula. We have been able to witness the beginning of fall. Leaves changing colors, temperatures dropping, the things we miss out on at home.…

Photography Lately – Abbey’s Senior Session

Life, Photography September 14, 2015

We have spent the past two summers living in Frenchtown, Montana while Jeff coaches the Missoula Osprey baseball team. Instead of living in a random apartment, we were blessed to be able to stay with a host family. The Teagle Family gave us a sense of home, even when we were so far from everything we knew. They invited us to their lake house, helped me drop off our only…
