Happy 6th Anniversary My Travis J.

Melissa Fischer

My sweet husband,

12 years ago we became friends. It didn’t happen naturally or come easily. We are opposites to the core and learning to understand and appreciate each other’s differences was {and still is} both challenging and maddening at times. It wasn’t love at first sight, we never just “clicked” and things never just seemed to “fit.” There were more miscommunications and misunderstandings in our relationship than I think anyone would ever want to deal with {especially as a high schooler}. Yet, somehow, we stuck it out.

Family Photo Shoot!

Melissa Fischer

A couple weeks ago we had my good friend, Emily Blake, take some family photos of us. The main reason we wanted to get the photos done was that we needed some updated family pictures for our adoption family profile book. If I'm being honest though, I was really grateful for the excuse to get some family photos taken. The last time we had even semi-professional looking pictures taken was two years ago when a friend offered to snap some of us as a hobby. {Do the math. That was when I was six weeks pregnant with Raena!} So, it's been awhile.

If you're a parent, you understand. If not, take a look at my Instagram feed. Once you have kids, all of your photo taking efforts shift to trying to capture every last cute thing they do. Any photo that I am a part of is usually the result of me taking a group selfie with my kids or Travis attempting to capture a moment {per my request} mid-motion of the kids and I. Most pictures turn out blurry and few end up in a category I would deem "flattering."

Big things happening in this house!

Melissa Fischer

This week was a big week in the Fischer household. And I know you’re dying to hear all about it {obvi.} so here we go!

The excitement kicked off right away Monday morning when Travis had his first day at his NEW JOB. We have officially started a new chapter! God blessed us with this new opportunity and we are very excited to see how it all works out over the next weeks and months. Change and transition is never without its hiccups and challenges, but so far things have been going pretty well for Travis during his first week at Plus they have a wall full of candy dispensers at the office, so how can he really complain? {#winning}

The next big thing {excitement level still to be determined} that is happening in our house is POTTY TRAINING! Yep, that’s right. We’ve stripped off the diapers and strapped on the big boy underwear and our Kingston boy is trying out the potty.
