Barron of Blog Wife, Kids, and the Pursuit of Happiness


The Hat Trick

Back in 2003 we were able to pull off a rare feat; within the course of a couple months we had a baby (Libby), bought a new house, and I started a new job.

I am very happy and proud to say: we have done it again!

The new baby is a girl (yes!) and we are looking forward to having our final child join the family. We moved into our new house (same city) in February and are feeling settled in. Finally, I just started my new position a few weeks ago and am happy where I am.

I apologize to those loyal readers who continued to check this blog for updates over the past few weeks - hopefully, now that most of the dust has settled, you will be seeing a bit more activity here.

My favorite part of our Maine trips, by far, is the time we spend eating and talking. There is nothing better than sitting around with family and shooting the breeze while munching on goodies:
