Our first and best year!

This morning I woke up to a bazillion pictures on my news feed of my hometown covered in show. It was beautiful, fluffy and… well… freezing! My mom shot me a text, “I am so thankful for answered prayers last year… Could you imagine?!”. This time last year we were all feverishly praying for a…

Everything Looks Different…

Q and I took The Spaceship toward the coast last weekend. We cruised along in our “new to us” car, a/c breezing cool air in our faces. We laughed, just a year ago we made many trips just like this one only we were in his truck (the more reliable of our two cars) with…

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…

These are the hands…

A week ago I experienced something new, something beautiful. The sun was low in the sky, warm colors set the perfect scene. My husband and I took seats in the back of a small crowd that had gathered to watch our cousin marry her beloved. The pastor and her new soon to be husband stood…

Plans to give you hope and a future

Three weeks have passed since I had a D&C. Though our baby was already an angel, physically loosing our Sweet Pea was hard. We were fortunate to have a wonderful OB, a Navy man with a gentle spirit and a kind smile. He was generous with the narcotics post-op and gave us no cause for…

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…

My poor, neglected bloggitty blog blog.

I’ve been a bad blogger. I think there are extremes that lead to writer’s block, having nothing to write about and, the much more complicated opposite, having infinitely more to write about. These days, my life definitely falls into the latter category. There are 13 days until my wedding and every hour is filled with…

We moved!

Hotel De Hufferd, now accepting reservations! Just another view… Wish I was there!   So many of our friends and family live so far away and have not been able to see our new house… So here it is! Last weekend, Q and I moved all of our stuff into our new apartment, it was…

Love in all seasons

My last post was about my grandpa’s surgery. In 2-3 hours the surgeon was to remove a mass of muscle from his stomach and repair a hernia that hadn’t healed right after his last surgery. About four hours after they took him back, we got the call and my mom and grandma went to meet…

My sweet old man.

I am at the hospital very early this morning with my grandparents. After a couple of months of skirting the issue, his surgeon finally laid it all out on the table. The surgery he is going to perform today is to remove a tumor and a part of his stomach. The word tumor sounded so…

It all falls into place…

There are 103 days and a few hours until I am a married woman. Gasp! Quinton and I were engaged for a few days when my mom and aunt started suggesting wedding dates and places. I was standing outside of my new salon, talking to my mom when she suggested a New Years Eve wedding/party….
