Happy Weekend

Rach, Mom, and me

Mom came to town for the weekend a few weeks ago.
As always, it was super fun to have her in town.

We enjoyed spending time at Cousin Ryan and Nichole's Wedding.

Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs.!

Word of the Day

I've gone my whole life thinking REDD was just a name.
Maybe with origins from a man who had red hair.
Maybe red with a stutter.
Maybe red with emphasis.
Maybe someone with a stutter who is very emphatic. 
I didn't really know.

Then one day recently my friend enlightened me with the true meaning of REDD.
I didn't believe him until I looked it up on and sure enough it read: 

noun the spawning area or nest of trout or salmon

I had NO idea! 

How does REDD go from being a just a name to meaning that, of all things?

Oddly enough, it also means:

verb (used with object), redd or redd·ed, redd·ing.

to put in order; tidy: to redd a room for company.
to clear: to redd the way.

because knowing what it really means has made me feel like my life is completely out of order slash turned upside down, if you will.
