A year ago today was one of the happiest days of our lives. A year ago today, we thought we were prepared. A year go today, our world really turned on its head. A year ago today, the babies came home from the NICU. Saying goodbye to our favorite nurse, Jeannie I don’t know how […]
The diner is closed. Well, it actually closed a few weeks ago. We did it very gradually, with our favorite customers slowly decreasing the amount of time spent in the diner.

Last weekend, the 18th and 19th, was a busy busy weekend for us.

It’s been a busy few weeks here at the Torres house. Here are some of our favorite moments from their birthday on Tuesday the 24th, their party that Saturday, the rest of the weekend with Nana, Grandpa, Aunt Lori, and Cousin Devon. Claire trying to work out a bargain with Daddy at the doctor – […]
