Hills & Valleys

Have you ever found yourself going down a smooth road, taking in all the beauty around you, enjoying the easy undisturbed path? I know I have and it’s pleasant; it’s easy; it’s comfortable. And then you hit a bump or take a big turn you didn’t see coming and get jolted or startled. Well that’s where we’re at in this chapter of life.  Read More

SAHM 1 Year Anniversary

Preface – I started this post two month ago <hanging head in shame>

At the start of this year I told myself I would write more and be more involved in my blog. Hmmmm, we’re four (now six) months into the new year and I’ve written two posts. Not off to the best start. I’ve thought a lot about what the purpose of my blog is and what I want to write about. At this point I don’t have a profound purpose except to share life’s journeys. I have a feeling that as time progresses the purpose will unfold. Read More

Changes Are Good

This is one of those posts I’ve gone back and forth on mostly due to the fact that I really am a fairly modest person so putting a photo out there of myself isn’t in my wheelhouse.

Lillian Letters – 1 Year

Dear Sweetness,

A year ago we were patiently awaiting your arrival, and since you were 4 days late, patient is probably an understatement! People would tell us to enjoy this time, because once she {you} arrived, our lives would be forever changed. We knew that, but when you arrived, what we thought we knew was nothing compared to our beautiful new reality.
I remember the day you were born so vividly. January 7, 2016 will forever be a magnificent day. On this day, you made Daddy a Dad and me a Mom. You opened our hearts to a whole new world; a whole new kind of love that we never knew existed. Read More

Trial & Error

Isn’t that the story of parenthood – Trial & Error. We try different foods. We try different nap schedules. We try different bedtimes. And sometimes we try different songs. Like right now, Wheels on the Bus is the song of choice while being buckled into the car seat. That will likely change here soon.  Read More
