2023 Update

I recently visited my own blog just to make sure it was still out there taking up a fraction of a space on the internet--yep, it sure was--and I realized I hadn't updated it in a year... wow! Time flies by so quickly these days. 

As of the writing of this post, we are now a family of FIVE (5!!!) with our newest addition, Camren, joining us just a little over a month ago. We hadn't planned on having another kiddo, but God knew this little lady was the missing piece to our Team Rowe puzzle and we absolutely could not love her more. 

Alex is our smart and adventurous little dude. He loves helping around the house (with baby, dishes, cooking, yard work, laundry... we'll take all the help we can get), he is artistic, is incredibly Type-A, and amazes us with his vocabulary, the stories he tells us, and we can't get enough of him singing himself to sleep (or when he wakes up) at the top of his lungs. 

Brady is so sweet. He loves to cuddle, read books, and do anything outside. As soon as you mention going to the park, for a walk or for a ride, he sprints over to get his favorite shoes (currently his red Crocs), and brings them back to us exclaiming, "Shoes back on! Shoes back on!" He's still learning different words, but he annunciates his speech so clearly and we love watching him grow into his own little person. 

For myself and Daniel, we both have recently changed jobs but are still employed full-time at the Air National Guard. Life is good there, and neither of us has plans to discontinue our service anytime soon. I truly look forward to going to work each day, and the opportunities, trainings, travel, and benefits we are afforded could not be better. "Service Before Self" is much easier to accomplish when you really enjoy what you do! 

While I don't intend to begin filling this space back up with new blog posts, I should mention that I'm still very active on my Instagram and also YouTube, often publishing posts, reels & stories on IG and YouTube Shorts of what we are up to these days... feel free to catch me there! And if you're an old reader from back in the day or a new one just stopping by to check this place out, all I have to say is thank you for supporting me & my family in my online adventures. It truly means so much!
