“A man and a woman have a little baby…and that makes three…three-ee-ee in the fam-i-ly.” Schoolhouse rock? Anybody?
Make that 4!
Hi there! We are the Brinkmeyers. My name is Denise Brinkmeyer, a recent structural engineer turned stay-at-home mamma to a cool little dude and his baby sister.
That handsome man in the photo with me (the taller one) is my amazing husband and best friend, Brandon, who almost-always nods, smiles, and says, “Good idea, honey,” after I explain what new shenanigans/project I want to try next.
We’ve lived in eastern Pennsylvania since May 2008 and love it! Not only are the people in this area so wonderful (dear friends, you know who you are…yes, you!), but we are within day-trip distance to some of the best cities in the U.S….New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. to name just a few. And there are so many not-so-well-known places in this part of the country that I’m discovering and equally loving.
So where were we prior May 2008? Well, we’re both from Missouri (me from St. Louis and Brandon from K.C.) and miss our families oh-so-much (dear family, you know who you are).
So why this little bloggy? Well, I want a place to keep track of all our projects, travel ideas, recipes and recipe photos, meal ideas, general thoughts, activities for kids, home-decorating ideas, adventures, plans, organizing tips, cleaning tips…are you seriously still reading this list? 🙂 Good for you!
Thank you for stopping by…and I hope you found some fun ideas for your own shenanigans!
