A life update in photos!

April 21, 2014

Have you ever sat down to write and found yourself with writers block due to too much material? My poor neglected blog. Here’s what you’ve missed since I wrote last: *I’ve turned 30. *Bluebelle turned 4. *Squishy is now 9 months old. *Easter! *LIFE. We’ve been busy with church and activities. Springtime has become one [...]

Living my dream.

December 5, 2013

Yesterday I went to the supermarket. Yesterday I loaded up my children and walked into a store where I bought groceries. Yesterday I bought groceries to take to my home to eat. I bought more than what was on my list and I took it home. And I realized I was living my dream. When [...]

Picking up the pieces

May 21, 2013

It’s 3:20 am and I can’t sleep. I can’t think. I can’t process. I originally had a post scheduled for today talking about my baby shower this past weekend, and I planned to share that post today anyway in order to allow myself more time to process, but when I realized I couldn’t shut my [...]

Enough, already.

April 11, 2013

Just preparing you now, I’m sharing pretty raw emotions. I’m trying to work them out. I’m having a hard time remembering that God is more than enough when the truth is, I’ve had enough. I am almost 29 weeks pregnant. That means in plus or minus 11 weeks, a baby will be here. My baby. [...]

Growing up and standing up

March 21, 2013

I am wrapping up my last week in Texas. It’s considerably more mournful than I anticipated. I feel as though I am leaving a world behind. I am leaving friends, family, and opportunities behind. More importantly, I know that life will go on — so I feel as though I am being the one left [...]

Coming Back Home

March 13, 2013

When I was a teenager, I swore I would never return home. I turned 18, graduated high school, and packed up and moved to a small school in Texas where I didn’t know a soul. I spent 4 of the most amazing years there and made friends I’ll cherish forever. I met my husband, got married, [...]

Packing Tips for a Stress-free Move

March 12, 2013

I simultaneously love and hate packing. Not counting college years, I have packed my entire household 7 times in the last 7 years. This doesn’t count small moves. This time is a little harder than usual because I have Bluebelle with me and I have physical limitations. I can’t tell you how many times I [...]

The best bubble bread recipe ever.

February 21, 2013

First of all, I know some of you are going to look at this and say, “Isn’t that just monkey bread?” Well, I guess it could be, but my grandma calls this bubble bread. It’s not the typical canned biscuits and cinnamon/sugar recipe either. “Monkey” bread never made much sense to me (and I even [...]

Chasing after peace

February 5, 2013

Sometimes I have to shut down my social media and close my eyes to escape it all. There’s so much drama. Pictures and videos of conspiracy theories and rants against the government, angry diatribes of slighted moments and the constant fear of losing something we never really had in the first place. It makes me [...]
