Parenting is really just a shot in the dark.

September 30, 2014

My friend and I were laughing this morning about how new parents or parents-to-be tend to range from idealistic to full-blown crazy. (Lets face it, this is pretty much life.) Every day my facebook feed is filled with ideas on how to be the perfect parent or have a perfectly well-adjusted baby. There are suggestions […]

Should I stop?

September 29, 2014

Sometimes I feel like I’m writing into nothingness. It’s indicative of the way I currently feel in my life — average. Does anyone just wish they could see what it is they are supposed to be doing? I feel like I have no real idea of what my talents or gifts are. I sing my […]

Can positivity be a bad thing?

September 25, 2014

I consider myself to be a positive person. I trust in the One who made me and I believe that “all things work together for good for those who love him and are called according to his purpose.” I personally have seen God make use of my life over and over again and I know that he […]

Pick-up post #2: thoughts on clouds.

September 18, 2014

I love cool and cloudy days. I think it’s because it feels like the earth is brooding and introspective. Sunshine can be optimistic to the point of being pushy. “Look at me! Come outside! Go! Do! Never stop!” It’s a relentless onslaught of high energy. After a long winter, I welcome the sun and it’s […]

Random thoughts about sin and grace.

September 16, 2014

Charles Spurgeon once said, “If your sin is small, your savior will be small also. But if your sin is great, then your savior must be great.” (Paraphrased by Derek Webb) The more I am confronted with my Savior, the more I am stricken with my own sinfulness. And it hurts. I consider myself to […]

My four year old is not sexy.

September 5, 2014

My daughter is four and she is currently obsessed with princesses. I’ve tried to encourage her to branch out, but I’m all too aware that this is common and I simply try to include strong and non-princessy lessons in along the way. It’s okay. I know that this obsession will end all too soon and […]

Ramblings, Routines, and Life.

August 27, 2014

We’ve developed a routine in this household. It’s the first one that’s truly stuck in the last 8 years, the past years filled with travel and survival that comes along with child raising. For the first time in years, (since B was a toddler!) I’m actually leaving the end of the day with a couple […]

First day of school!

August 21, 2014

Well, sister did it! We all woke up early this morning, too excited to sleep. I made pancakes and we got ready. I did fine, although I got a little choked up as I saw her wear her little backpack on the way to class. When we walked in, she went straight to her cubby, […]

Bluebelle and the classroom.

August 16, 2014

This is the last Saturday of summer for this crew, as Bluebelle starts Pre-K this week. My baby, starting school. Hold me. Truth be told, I never intended to put her in Pre-K. I always assumed I would wait until Kindergarten to put her in, as school drags on forever and I want to keep […]

The American Dream

August 13, 2014

Today I stood around talking with some women at the pool. We were there collectively, watching our little tots complete their swim lessons. We’ve become casual friends, finding common ground in early motherhood, a lack of sleep, our combined desire for a moment of adult companionship and the common everyday occurrences in our local area.
