Missionary Support

Last Wednesday, after I tucked the kids in bed, I drove down to San Diego and pick my husband up from the airport. He left Uganda 29 hours prior, we were so thankful that he was seamlessly rerouted around a big snowstorm. The last days of his trips are the longest, I am excited to…

Recharge

  This morning was a chance for me to recharge.   I am the type of gal that needs her tribe. I need my people because they give me the good stuff, the happy feelings, they fill my days with life. This morning I got to spend some time with the people that take the…

The End of an Era

Last week I sat on my friend’s carpet drinking wine and catching up. It was the same house our group of friends have spent many nights in, celebrating various milestones, birthdays, and baby showers. A few of our friends were missing, that’s to be expected these days. Where we used to be a tight knit…

Family

Sunday we celebrated new beginnings.  Little Logan,  baby Ashley Rose, and the “new cousin” Quinton.  It was a beautiful day with our family. Couldn’t be happier:)  

Home… where our hearts are.

I would like to think that we have a cozy home. The pile of blankets folded next to the couch cries to be cuddled in. Our lack of kitchen storage would lead you to believe we overflowith with enough food to sustain a Himalayan hiking crew. Our guest bed has the softest sheets I could…

The Honeymooners, Chapter Uno!

We did it. We got married, went on a great honeymoon, and have are slowly settling into our new life together. It was on the boat ride away from the small rainforest/fishing village we honeymooned in that I told Q, mid-chuckle, “This is going to make a hilarious blog one day.” He nodded vigorously (or…

Wombs and weepy feelings

Very early this year I shared this blog with ya’ll: The mystery of our wombs . I felt clumsy writing it, I wasn’t sure if it was my place to write about a third party experience when the battle itself was so fresh for so many. This is a follow up. Yesterday afternoon I stopped by…

I went camping and lived to tell about it!

For years, my friend Kate has tried to drag me, against my will, into what she would call The Great Outdoors. By means of hiking, camping, or general wandering, she has used all means of mind powers to get me to accompany her on these escapades. For nearly five years I have declined countless invitations…

Tuesday Family Nights

It doesn’t matter who you bring, just come home! That is our family motto on Tuesday nights. Over the years it has grown into somewhat of a circus on some nights but no matter how big, chaotic, or silly it is, there is no where else I would rather be. This home is full of…

The white owl and the Trampage

The last week has been I.N.S.A.N.E. After my last post about Sugar Baby, the little Maltese Aly and I found on the freeway, momentum has been non-stop. If we are going to be honest, the vortex started before that. Life is both nutty and wonderful.  A couple of months ago Aly, Kate and I took…

She is the cutest thing I have ever seen.

I had one major goal for today. I only wanted to make it out of work before the sun set. I have been on a work spree from the heavens and I was desperate to feel the sun on my face. It all panned out that Aly and I were off about the same time…

You are so very valuable!

First of all, I would like to say a big, fat thank you to you guys! I made a deal with myself at the beginning of this silly blog that if I made it to 25 posts with any margin of success, I would purchase my domain for the site. Well, The Art of the…
