disclaimer: I am a Christ-following, stay-at-home mama. So, it would naturally follow that this post is written from the perspective of a Christ-following, stay-at-home mama. My goal here is to encourage, and to help others who are struggling. This is simply my opinion, from lessons I’ve learned on this journey called life. I am not a professional, nor do I… Read More
Despite a freak rain/hail shower, and over an hour spent stuck in traffic due to a downed power line, we actually made it to our family photos session. Barely. So grateful we were working with a photographer – through Red Thread Sessions – that was refreshingly easy-going. The rain actually worked to our advantage because it caused the temperature to… Read More
On Sunday afternoon, I was doing what I love to do. Taking pictures of my kids. They were playing in their new playhouse – aka cardboard basketball hoop box – and to bring in more light, I opened the front door. After snapping a few pictures, just inside the entryway, I turned around. And this is what I saw. A… Read More
I was leaving WalMart at about 1:00 this afternoon when my phone rang. It was my sweet neighbor, inviting us to eat with them and our other neighbors for Memorial Day. At 3:00.

On this day, the day before Mother’s Day. Making some homemade cards. Imitating mom. Ignoring mom. And completely unaware of mom. Playing. Flying. And loving…. Read More
Y’all are too much. I loved reading your guesses. Some made me smile. Buying a cow? Not it, but I do kinda like that idea. Another pony? Hmmmm…. Going blond? The funny part was how I’d look after my over-processed fell out. Some made me cry. Victoria getting engaged? Not my baby! Engaged? Getting a new puppy? Seriously, Seamus is… Read More
Happy day. All my babies. In one place. My jammie-wearing, unbrushed-hair sportin’ kiddos. And to this mama, this sight could not be any sweeter. Hoping y’all are surrounded by those you love this New Year’s Eve!
This day has been some time in the works. Quite a long time in the works, actually. But today, with poles, bait and license in hand, we all headed to the lake. And fished. With just two poles, everyone had to take turns. But the kiddos managed to busy themselves with rock throwing. And leaf collecting. And everything else to… Read More
