Welcome to Tara and Blake: our friends, our travels, our world.  We recently renovated our site to make a more friendly one for your visit.  We have updated our journals, slideshows, and sporting events for our family and friends.  We have included more information on Tara's Boston Marathon training and Blake's Baseball breakdowns and more about our journals along the way. 

We are celebrating our 13th year together this Valentine's Day, as we also are sharing our 11th year as husband and wife.  More to come on those milestones as well as we continue this year.  In the meantime, stay connected by viewing our Journals, Galleries and see us on Picasa as well.

2012 A New Year and New Focus
Its 2012 and so many wonderful opportunities are in store for this new year! Tara and I have been diligently working on a few projects trying, like you, to simplify life! In the meantime, running is still our main theme and like so many weekends, this first weekend of the year is filled with running!

The New Years Resolution Run was in full swing on January 1, 2012, as many families came out to celebrate the new year with a 1 Mile, 5k or the always fun 10k. Tara and our friends Rich and Katherine all ran together in the 10k. They were not competing, but finished in about 71 minutes. The goal was to get out with friends and have a great jog, which is just what happened!

You can view more photos from this race by going to my new business: Photography By Blake.

Happy Running!
