Peace in the Midst

It's been less than a week since our country started shutting down, due to the COVID-19 pandemic that's spreading across the globe. How crazy that I just typed that sentence and it's true. I feel sort of like I'm in this dream world- or movie, even- walking slowly,...

I want to pretend like I've been so MIA on the blog over the past year because "I've been taking some time for me", or because "my life is so wildly successful that I just don't have time", but the honest truth is just that I've been tired this year. And I don't even...

2019: Man. What a year. I was awoken this morning by Emmy, my 3yo, screaming in the bathroom. She had an accident, there was pee everywhere, and mornings are already not my thing. And now that I'm typing this I'm remembering that the load of pee-covered items is still...

I often wonder what it would be like to go back in time and tell my old self to calm the heck down. All the things I worried about, knowing how they've resolved and turned out now, I wonder if it would help or not. I've been a little MIA on the blog this past year, I...

Nathan is Best Man material. I say this because he has been in two weddings so far, and has been the Best Man in each.  He's also the Best Man for a wedding this upcoming June. So, Best Man x 3. He's not the type to have a thousand acquaintances; he has a few...

I have no problem in admitting that I struggle with contentment.  NONE. I feel like, why deny the facts? Contentment is a struggle for practically every person I know, so why not just come clean about it? This contentment struggle goes deep, into every area of my life...

Last year, I wrote this post on 32 things I was thankful for, and I've been thinking about it lately. I may have accidentally created a birthday tradition that is deeply meaningful to me, so why not carry it on? 2018 was... rough for us. There were some really low...

Nathan and I got married on a snowy day eight years ago... yesterday. It was crazy that it was snowing- we maybe get one snow day a year on the reg down here.  And that year, it just happened to be our day.  It was special, but like we weren't prepared AT ALL, and my...
