Yesterday was the third anniversary of getting my “all or nothing” tattoo. I posted the two pictures below on my Instagram account (@npk412), and then got to reflecting on why I got the tattoo I did in the first place.
You can read the full story behind why I chose “all or nothing” here, which may be my favorite post I’ve ever written.

Some days I work from home.
Some days Bennington offers to help.
Well, today is not one of those days.

This past fall we began looking into the idea of adopting a dog. We kept our eyes open and even put in a few applications that were unfortunately just minutes too late. Luckily, those misses all resulted in the pups still going home with a great family … and meant that we would be open to meet Bennington.
Bennington is a rescue dog (who was known as “Rusty” during his several weeks with a foster fam) that we stumbled across a few days before New Year’s Eve. We put in our application right after we finished reading his profile, and by the weekend had our house visit and got the approval to meet our dog.
We picked him up in Madison that day, and the rest will be history.
If you’d like to follow that history, he’s on Instagram and you can find him at @BenningtonTheGreat.
And if you’re considering getting a dog in the future, consider a rescue.

This November we took a long weekend to explore a new city: Montreal. Was amazing, and here are some tips for you to make it amazing as well.
1) Go back in the summer. We LOVED the city, but definitely felt a trip when it was warm would be better.
2) Find the biggest leaf you can, and hide your face behind it.

This year we said goodbye to Grandpa Jones. He was my sister’s and my last grandparent, so the holidays have felt a little different this time around.
So while over the past couple of seasons I’ve DIY’ed a new Christmas tree theme, this year we went with the theme of “Classic Christmas.” Instead of paper birds that have been stapled, folded and glued to perfection the tree this year is adorned with ornaments that have been touched, hung and admired for so many years.
It’s a different, purer type of perfection. A classic perfection.
A Classic Christmas.
