Winter adventure

Well, I suppose it’s about time that we start enjoying this Michigan winter, and what a better way than a ski adventure in the great white north! I’m actually pretty happy with how the day turned out… Despite my lack of practice last year. The snow was perfectly powdery, the company was beyond great (thanks […]

Ula’s first day

Today was Ula’s first day at doggy daycare! I have to say that I was pretty sad to leave her there (especially since I don’t start work until Monday) but, thankfully, they post pictures of the puppies playing!

Our good friends Lindsey and Andrew came to visit over the weekend from Cincinnati and it was just […]

What we’ve been up to

Hey there! It’s been quite the few weeks here at the Denlinger household! I’ve been interviewing at a couple places here in Detroit (and preparing my portfolio before that) and I finally feel like I’ve poked my head above water. It’s been exhausting and so encouraging, but everything is now officially on hold until after […]
